So… It is nearly the end of 2019. Yup, you heard that right! Crazy, isn’t it? Where on earth has the year gone! I think it must have slipped some months through without me noticing…
In all seriousness though, 2019 feels like it has gone really quickly! At the start of the year, I set myself some targets for my blog that I wanted to try and achieve (you can find them here and the mid-year check in here) and, while these weren’t super specific or serious, I think it is time I checked in on whether I completed them! How else would I know if 2019 has been a success or not?
Okay, my blog goals aren’t actually going to define my year, but it is still good to check. So, here goes:
Read 30 books 👍
And we’re off to a good start! I managed to hit this one in late November and, as of now, I am on 31 books. Only just over, but still got there. Any for this month are just bonuses, so woooo!!!
Read more books from the library👍👎
Hmmmm… I was doing so well on this one in June. But since then, not so much. A bunch of books coming out that I was excited for since September has put an end to this one. I haven’t used my library card since then! Though, after some quick mental calculations, I still had roughly 30% of the books I read this year from the library. Not bad, but can do better!
Read a greater range of genres👍
Similar to the library goal, really. In fact, almost exactly the same. So far, I have read 9 non-fantasy books out of the 31, and my current read is non-fantasy too, so that gives me roughly 30% again. I’m actually not to unhappy with that. Maybe I could get one or two more in, but since fantasy is my favourite genre, I’m gonna count this as a win! Would you guys say that is right? let me know!
Reach 200 followers👍👍👍
I smashed this one! So, you know…
Okay, in all seriousness, my numbers aren’t that big, but I’m at about 450 (roughly) and so that is definitely smashing it. I’ll have to be way more ambitious next year!

3 out 4 goals hit… And the other was close, so overall, I’m happy with that!
How are your goals going? Hopefully you got full marks! Next year, I think I will try to make my goals more specific… This years were a bit wishy-washy, but hey, this is only a hobby!
Oh, and since it is December and near the end of the year…
