It’s been about 6 months since I last posted. Half a year. That was… unplanned.
At the time, I talked about struggling with disordered eating due to my anxiety. I am very proud to say that I’m doing so much better now. I am at a healthier weight. Still not where I’m supposed to be, but fairly close. I’m still in therapy, seeing a nutritionist, taking meds, working, and reading to my hearts content.
According to Goodreads, in 2019 I read 142 books. That’s a lie. I read 145. Audiobooks make all the difference haha. I don’t set a number goal because I already read a lot of books as is. Don’t need the pressure.
Last year, I worked on the POPSUGAR reading challenge for the second time. In 2018 I completed it. Last year? Nope! I had 6 prompts left. I’m planning to roll them over to this year’s challenge. Which I’m doing differently. Going to use one book for multiple prompts. Let’s see how that works out.
Back to the Classics
Failed this one too! Had one prompt left, which I will roll over to this year’s.
Another fail! Even though more than half of my 2019 reads were written by women, I still had 3 prompts left. And yes, these are getting rolled over as well.
Fail! I had 3 prompts left over. Yeah, you know the drill. Getting rolled over.
Besides working on all the reading challenges listed above, I will also be working on my own personal challenge. This year, I am only reading books by POC. I realized that even though I am Latina, I don’t read diversely. In 2017, 5% of the books I read were written by POC. In 2018, that number slightly increased to 14%. And 2019 was 22%. Yeah, I need to change that. It’s for my own personal growth.
So that’s where I’m at right now. Continually working on myself. Healthy, happy, and reading.
Thank you for all of your kind words. I’ve missed all of you and will see you around the blogosphere again soon!
HAPPY BLOGGING EVERYONE! 😀
