2018 goals check-up // Let’s see how I did!

As 2018 is coming to an end, it’s time to look back on the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year. You can find that post here. I didn’t set that many bookish goals as I wanted to keep them achievable. Let’s get straight into it!

I want to read at least 3 new classics.

Yes, I did this! It feels good to have already ticked one off! What I meant by new classics, is that re-reading didn’t count. I often re-read The Little Prince, but excluded that from this goal. I wanted to branch out. I read these classics:

I want to participate in 2 readathons.

I did this too! This is going well 🙂 I participated in the Contemporary-a-thon, Dewey’s 24 hour readathon, and the Booktube-a-thon. All three events were really fun! I want to continue participating in readathons in 2019.

Guess who succeeded at another goal? *happy dance* I read all the books in my collection that were unread on the first of January 2018. (And all the new things I added after that!) The latter wasn’t a part of this goal, but I did it anyway 🙂 Here are all my wrap-ups in case you want to go look for my reviews. I read most of these in the beginning of the year.

My own copy of Kids of Appetite by David Arnold // Ice Princess by Camilla Läckberg // We are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson // Woesten by Kris Van Steenberge // The Ravenclaw edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone by J.K. Rowling // The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende // The Power by Naomi Alderman // Autoboyography by Christina Lauren

From this stack, I would recommend Kids of Appetite by David Arnold and The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende most highly.

I want to read more diversely.

This is technically still in progress as I’m hoping to read a few more things before 2018 truly comes to its end. However, I can already say that I succeeded at this. I read a higher percentage of diverse books in comparison to last year. These are the stats:

2017 diversity


diversity (78 books)


Those were all of my goals, which means I did well with all of them! I’m really proud of myself for doing this!

What do you think? Did you set any goals yourself? How did it go?

Thanks for reading! I hope you found this post enjoyable. I’ll see you next time!
