Mid Month Review

We’ve now hit the midway point for October, so I wanted to check some of my goals today!

So far, this month I’ve read 15 books!

This brings me to a grand total of 247 books this year, which is just 3 off my Goodreads target.

So back on day 4 of #Blogtober, I set myself some goals and today, I’m going to see how they’re going so far.

Blogging Goals:

I’ve reviewed 9 books so far this month, so certainly enough for one per week!

All the books I’ve reviewed this month (so far):

  • Soulbinder by Sebastian De Castell
  • The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle (check it out here)
  • The Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle (here)
  • Scythe by Neal Shusterman
  • Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman
  • Happier Thinking by Lana Grace Riva
  • Goodbye Perfect by Sara Barnard (here)
  • Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen (here)
  • American Panda by Gloria Chao (here)

I have posted every day, so I am sticking to Blogtober and I recently posted an original book tag. The only blogging goal I haven’t achieved yet is sharing a book haul, so I’ll try and do this before the end of the month.

Reading Goals:

I’ve read 5 books that feature BAME characters and/or are written by authors who are BAME:

  • You’re Not Proper by Tariq Mehmood
  • Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
  • Open by Gemma Cairney
  • For Every One by Jason Reynolds
  • Wildcard by Marie Lu

I’ve read 3 books that contain LGBT+themes/characters and/or are written by authors who are LGBT+:

  • Grace & Fury by Tracy Banghart (side character is LGBT+)
  • Someday by David Levithan
  • Wildcard by Marie Lu

I’ve read 4 books that contain themes about mental health issues/disabilities:

  • The Price Guide To The Occult by Leslye Walton (graphic descriptions of self-harm)
  • Open by Gemma Cairney
  • Happier Thinking by Lana Grace Riva
  • It Ends With You by S.K.Wright (suicidal thoughts)

Also, I have stuck to my current system of randomly choosing my next read, but I might switch it at the end of the month.

However, I want to get these numbers higher by the end of the month.

Over To You:

How are your goals for October going?
