Hey there, my lovelies!
Okay, technically it’s not the middle of the year anymore, I mean we already have July, but I gotta work with the time I have and since it’s not all too much you get my half-year summary now. AND because someone needs to call me out on my horrible reading behaviour! *lol* (Even if it’s myself… >_<)
Statistics don’t lie and mine tells me I’m awful at keeping to My Book List 2019! Seriously, what’s wrong with me? XD How come I barely read any of the books I said I wanted to read? There were 40 books on my list and according to my goodreads challenge I already read 46. Unfortunately only 8 of them actually were books from my list!
I don’t know about you, but I think I’m procrastinating too much! There are so many awesome books on my list and because I know they are going to be great I don’t dare to touch them. Which means I’m standing in my own way and I need to change that!
I guess the best way to do this is to take a closer look at the books I already read and to take it from there. So without further ado here is my eye-opening statistic:
Urgh! *cringes* Okay, that hurt! *lol* 35% of the books I read weren’t even on my list and only 22% of them were on my reading lists from 2018 and 2019. Ouch! And to make it even worse only 10% are from 2019?! AHHHH!!! Someone please help me! XD
But hey it could always be worse, right? I couldn’t have read any of the books on my list so I guess 10% is good. (At least for me! 😉 ) Plus I still have 6 months left, okay technically it are more like 5 1/2 months but if I go through with my list I could actually manage to read them. 😀
That is, of course if I change my reading pattern. I definitely need to read more ARCs and less library books. My library is too tempting, I swear! >_< Considering I’m trying to pull out books from my Bookie Jar every month I seem to be doing okay in that department though. Apparently my monthly blog meme Hugs’n’kisses OR Dismissed by the Missus/Messrs is working out pretty well too! 😀
So knowing all this I’ll try to plan the last six months of this year accordingly! Okay, okay, I’ll try! Better?! *lol*
What about you? Do you have a book list as well and did you keep to it? Are libraries tempting you too? Are you afraid to start reading awesome books and if yes, did you find a way to stop procrastinating?
Talk to me and let me know! 😉
