Eight Book Minimum: Goooooal(s)!

Hello hello! We're halfway through the year, I've been reading up a storm, and I promised [twitter.com profile] readingtheend that I would revisit my reading goals around this time of year to check that they were still feasible and I still want to do them.

As a reminder, my goals were:

  • Read 150 books, of which 50 have to be prose

  • Read stories by 75 new-to-me female authors

  • #getouttamydamnhouse: stop having 90 library books in your house, Susan, what are you doing

  • #unofficialqueerasfuckbookclub: Have more than 25% of my reading focus on queer stories



I'll be going from the full figures that I've been tracking, which is different from what's on the end of my last Eight Book Minimum post, and different from what's in my GoodReads challenge because that tracks rereads, which I'm not doing here.

So let's see how I did!

I also made a list of the books that I was most excited about reading in 2017, so I should probably check on my progress on that while I'm doing
this!

I honestly though that I was doing terribly at all of my goals so far, so this exercise has been really useful for me to see what I'm doing and fix
the ones that haven't gone to plan. (Eighty books. How.) Thank you for the suggestion Jenny!

But how is everyone else doing? Completed any reading goals? Reconsidered any?
