After talking with real life BFF and fellow blogger Miss Print I decided that creating a monthly reading tracker would be helpful – not just to me as a reader, but also to me as a blogger. At the beginning of each month I will post three books that I hope to read during the month. At the end of the month I will report back on if when I read the three planned books, I will discuss my thoughts on how the month went reading wise, and I will also post the following month’s reading tracker. By keeping track I hope to read more and read better. And that is, without putting any pressure on myself.
As of late, I feel as if I haven’t been reading as actively as I used to. And I’m starting to seriously miss it. I’m hoping that this tracker will remedy that.
Now, I have to real standards of how I’m picking and choosing books each month. My choices could be random, they could be based on a current mood/feeling, or they could be themed.
For the month of February, I plan on reading three books. I plan on reading one book that has been taking up residence on my shelf for some time (aka a backlist book). I will read a historical fiction book (because I’m just in the mood). And finally I will read an upcoming book (or rather an ARC/egalley).
Current Read: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
Backlist: Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John
Historical Fiction: My Name Is Not Friday by Jon Walter
Upcoming: Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
So, readers — what books are you planning on reading this month? Are there any books that you’ve been looking forward to this month?
