Goal: read from my TBR

My top goal for 2018: read 50 books from a 100 book list of my TBRs (or physical TBRs).

Primary goals:
  • Track books read. Jan: 13 Feb:14 Mar: 21 Apr: 17
  • Read 50 books TBRs. Jan: 6 Feb:1 Mar: 3 Apr: 0
  • 2018 Popsugar & Book Riot Read Harder challenges, just for fun.
  • Series (re)reads. Jan: 1 Mar: 1
  • Track spending/subscriptions.
  • Make a dent in subscribed magazines. Jan: 4 Feb: 6 Mar: 6 Apr: 4
  • Track freebie evaluation. Jan: 1
  • Just keep dreaming those physical TBRs will get read. Jan: 1 Mar: 1

I'm going to track my reading, but don't have a goal for number or page count. Last year unexpectedly set a substantial new high, and I will be quite content to read less this year.

Spoiler:
Jan: 13 read. 5 novels, 4 magazines, 1 NF, 2 shorts, 1 graphic novel. 2600 pages.
Feb: 14 read. 4 novels (1 re-read), 6 magazines, 1 biography, 1 addl NF, 1 short, 1 NF short. 3000 pages.
Mar: 21 read. 13 novels (1 re-read), 6 magazines, 1 nf, 3 shorts. 4700 pages.
Apr: 17 read. 8 novels, 4 magazines, 3 non-fiction, 2 shorts. 4700 pages.


2018 Popsugar and Book Riot Read Harder challenges, with no "reloads" - slot a book and leave it there, but just for interest in what gets covered along the way.

Spoiler:
Jan: 4/2
Feb: 3/1 (7/3)
Mar: 6/1 (13/4)
Apr: 3/0 (16/4)


Series reads: In Death and A Free Man of Color

Spoiler:
Jan: Barbara Hamilton, The Ninth Daughter. Mar: Barbara Hamilton, A Marked Man, Sup with the Devil.
Apr: De facto abandoned this idea for now.


Continue tracking spending/acquisitions/use of subscription services.

Spoiler:
Scribd
Jan: 2 DNF $13.
Feb: 2 $13
Mar: 2 $10 + 1 finished in print.
Apr: 3 $12.

KOLL & Prime
Jan: 1 KOLL $3.
(Feb: 1 cked out.)
Mar: 1 KOLL $3, 1 Prime reference
Apr: 2 KOLL $8, catching up prev months. 1 Prime reference

NG
Jan: 3
Apr: 1

Acquisitions
switched to spreadsheet


Continue to tracking magazine and anthology reading.

Spoiler:
Apex, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Clarkesworld, Fantasy and Science Fiction, Lightspeed, Uncanny
Jan: B2/C/U
Feb: A/B2/C/L/U
Mar: A2/B3/C
Apr: A/C/Asimov's/U


Evaluate (read or DNF) freebies and boost any worthwhile finds.

Spoiler:

Jan: 1, which I realized I'd DNFed 4 years ago and failed to note.


Read those physical TBRs, already.

Spoiler:
Jan: 1! Mar: 1

Mix & Match of long time in TBR, specific authors, and themed groups of 18 in 2018

I have a mix of reading goals for 2017, including:
  1. Catch up on one author I've fallen woefully behind reading
  2. Catch up on three authors I am slightly behind on
  3. Complete a series by a new-to-me author
  4. Pick 10 “Must Read” books for the year from my huge TBR (not including any new releases)

January 2018
Read 7 books (very slow start to the year for me )

February 2018
Read 6 books (eek!)

March 2018
Read 14 books (better, but this is my slowest start to a reading year in over a decade )

April 2018
Read 25 books.
Finished The 21st Century Challenge.

May 2018
Read 23 books.

June 2018

July 2018

Goal: 45 books in 2018

My overall goal for 2018 is to read 80 books. Although that'll be a bit of stretch since this year (2017) I read only 31. I manage 38 in 2016 which is my highest since I've tracked these things.

I want to participate in the New Leaf Book club so the first book I read each month should be that book.

My second will be something off my TBR, specifically from my pile of "Started not reading" tagged books.

If there's a third or fourth then I'll either read from my TBR generally, perhaps catch up on a series, or just something new that catches my eye.

Books
January - 3 books
Spoiler:

1. Whose Body? D.L. Sayers - 7/10 - not bad. Not normally a genre I read.
2. How to Stop Time, Matt Haig - 8/10 - a re-read for a book club. Enjoyable.
3. Hawksmoor, Peter Ackroyd - 6/10 - challenging read. Half set in 80's London, half in 1700s.

February - 6 books
Spoiler:

4. The Dream-Quest of Vellit Boe, Kij Johnson - 7/10 - OK. Would've helped if I'd known it was a response to a HP Lovecraft story.
5. Passing, Nella Larsen - 6/10 - Novella about mixed race women 'passing' for white in early 20thC New York. Felt like I was missing stuff.
6. Broken Homes, Ben Aaronovitch - 9/10 - Enjoyable addition to the series.
7. Annihilation, Jeff VanderMeer - 6/10 - Probably a good book for those that like it, not my kind of thing.
8. Foxglove Summer, Ben Aaronovitch - 8/10 - another good PC Grant book.
9. Frankenstein (1818 version), Mary Shelley - 7/10 - interesting to read the original book.

March - 12 books
Spoiler:

10. The Hanging Tree, Ben Aaronovitch - 8/10 - still enjoying the series though this book has a lot going on.
11. The Old Man and the Sea, Ernest Hemmingway - 8/10 - Never read it before. Book club pick.
12. I Capture the Castle, Dodie Smith - 10/10 - Wow. Was surprised how much I enjoyed this.
13. The Furthest Station, Ben Aaronovitch - 7/10 - standalone PC Grant novella.
14. Three Men in a Boat, Jerome K. Jerome - 7/10 - funny but not as much as I thought it would be.
15. Love May Fail, Matthew Quick - 7/10 - not bad. By the author of Silver Linings Playbook. Hits some of the same themes.
16. The Outsider, Albert Camus (tr. Sandra Smith) - 7/10 - Feeling like I didn't quite get it. Simple language, simple story. Odd main character.
17. The Old Man and the Sea, Ernest Hemmingway - 8/10 - re-read it to be fresh in my mind as it's short.
18. All Our Wrong Todays, Elan Mastai - 7/10 - alternate history/time-travel story with a romantic sub-plot and a rather dark section.
19. Versions of Us, Laura Barnett - 6/10 - the structure worked against enjoyment for me, though the writing was good.
20. Rule Zero, Laurence Timms - 7/10 - thriller about a magickal/psychic spy and the attempted invasion of London by a superhuman. Reminds me of H2G2 in tone.
21. The Bridge of Birds, Barry Hughart - 8/10 - a sort of Chinese myth version of the Princess Bride.

April - 12 books
Spoiler:

22. Soot, Andrew Martin - 9/10 - a 18th century murder mystery set in York and London.
23. The Story of the Stone, Barry Hughart - 8/10 - second book in the Master Li Chronicles (Bridge of Birds was the first)
24. 13 Dates, Matt Dunn - 5/10 - simplistic and implausible.
25. Eight Skilled Gentlemen, Barry Hughart - 7/10 - final in the Master Li Chronicles.
26. Last Night in Montreal, Emily St. John Mandel - 9/10 - haunting novel about leaving.
27. Making History, Stephen Fry - 7/10 - alternate reality/time-travel story.
28. Turtles All the Way Down - 8/10 - YA novel about mental health.
29. All The Good Things, Clare Fisher - 8/10 - novel about social exclusion and its effect on a young woman.
30. Holy Island, LJ Ross - 5/10 - crime thriller set on Lindisfarne. Can't decide if it's a brutal serial-killer tale or a bodice-ripper!
31. The Children Act, Ian McEwan - 8/10 - story of a marriage, of a court case, of life and death.
32. A Monster Calls, Patrick Ness - 9/10 - fantasy dealing with dealing with grief.
33. City of Stairs, Robert Jackson Bennett - 7/10 - fantasy crime/thriller. Great world-building and characters, found it a bit of a slog for some reason.

May - 7 books
Spoiler:

34. All Grown Up, Jami Attenberg - 7/10 - a novel about being single and not having any of the usual markers of adulthood (marriage, kids, career).
35. City of Blades, Robert Jackson Bennett - 7/10 - second in the Divine Cities trilogy. Enjoyed it slightly less than book 1, could have been trimmed I think.
36. On the Beach, Nevil Shute - 7/10 - kind of odd. Dated and with a flawed premise, I think. But still readable.
37. The Radium Girls, Kate Moore - 6/10 - important story about a public health issue. Bit of a slog, would rather have watched a documentary.
38. After You Left, Carol Mason - 6/10 - strange cross between a literary novel, family drama and romance. Noble but unsuccessful effort (for me)
39. The Rest of Us Just Live Here, Patrick Ness - 9/10 - what if you're not the chosen one when the apocalypse happens? What if you're just trying to figure out life, love and friendship?
40. The Crane Wife, Patrick Ness - 7/10 - based on a Japanese folk tale and a song inspired by the same. OK, not as good as the other two Ness's on this list.

June - 2 books
Spoiler:

41. Sourdough, Robin Sloan - 7/10 - weird, quirky, satirical (I think) book about tech startups and foodie hipsters in San Francisco.
42. The Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas - 6/10 - overly long, confused tone. Some swashbuckling fun in there though.
