I am not an organized reader. Yesterday I posted my first quarter challenge updates and some things are going really well and others are suffering from the persistent mod reading. Something has to change! In addition to joining the OWL Readathon that was put together by G @ Book Roast, I am going to try making a general April 2019 Reading List. Here is what I hope to read to keep my challenges going during the month of April.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
One NonFiction book about Sherlock Holmes (Waiting to see what the library provides!)
One Sherlock Holmes Fiction Book (A Study in Charlotte)
Finish the Magnus Chase series or The Fate of the Tearling series
And read my backlist!!! It is not getting any better by ignoring it! This is where I hope the OWL Readathon will help clear some decks.
I also need to read my three ARCs; Highland Crown by May McGoldrick, Dreaming in Code: Ada Byron Lovelance, Computer Pioneer by Emily Arnold McCully, and Solving for M by Jennifer Swender.
I realize this is a pretty unimpressive reading list and that many people have 10-15 books specifically picked out. But, that would be a recipe for disaster for me. I need flexibility to see what books call to me. And yet, I also need to suck it up and read certain books already. If I manage to finish all of these and my books for my O.W.L. Readathon I am going to celebrate (probably with a new book).
Tell me, please!
Do you have any tips on how to plan your upcoming reading to achieve your goals?
