Thursday’s Top 4: summer reading goals

Happy Thursday, everyone! Find out more about Thursday’s Top 4 here! It’s basically a meme I started mainly for myself, but anyone can participate! Visit this page for the upcoming topics 🙂

This week the topic is summer reading goals. I thought it’d be fun to set some specific summer reading goals to help keep me accountable.

Read ten books: if I read ten books this summer, I will be at 18/25 for my yearly goal, which is not bad. I’m hoping to read more, but I’m setting my goal to 10.

Read two of the “books I wanted to read in 2018 and didn’t get to”: I think these two will be Six of Crows and Homegoing. I also have 1Q84 on that list, but I’ve resigned myself to the fact that it will probably take a long time to read that book.

Read one non-fiction: I think I’ll try to read A Vindication for the Rights of Women, because it’s on my physical TBR.

Read two back-list books: I had four specific backlist books on my 2019 TBR, and I’ve already read one! So I’m hoping to read two more this summer. Probably Half of a Yellow Sun and A Wrinkle in Time.

So those are some of my summer reading goals! What are yours? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Let me know!

  1. Good luck with your goals! The only book you mentioned which I have read is A Wrinkle In Time, and (for me at least) it’s a relatively quick read, so that should help. I hope you enjoy it! It’s one of my favorites. For myself, this summer I hope to get to one or more of the books on my Book Bucket List. I like being to check off the boxes, LOL.

  2. Reasonable goals! Summer’s when I’m at my most distraction, so reading can be a challenge. Ten books sound great and something I can achieve myself. Good luck!

  3. Half of a Yellow Sun is an impressive book. Not a quick read and some hard topics but such an unusual setting – Biafra – and from such an interesting perspective. It was a political history lesson along with a good story
