Summer 2017 Reading Goals!

So, I know this post is a few weeks late but -- hey -- better late than never!  I've only just settled down enough this summer to really buckle down and dive into the pile of books that has been growing all year long.  This year has been such a fantastic reading year for me -- I've already read 42 books so far!  This might not seem like a lot to much, but to me, it's great!  Last year I only read 52 books in all, so I'm way ahead of schedule this time around. 

At the beginning of 2017, I set my Goodreads (if you want to find me on Goodreads, go here!) Reading Goal at 60 -- I figured this would be a realistic but slightly more challenging goal.  I had no idea I'd be doing as much reading as I am this year!  Being only 18 books away from my goal has me feeling pretty ambitious though.  So, my goal for this summer is to read 18 books and finish my goal of reading 60 books in 2017!

I'm a bit intimidated by the task but I'm excited to read more, too!  I have so many books that I've been looking forward to finally picking up so I'm hoping this goal will push me to read more of them this summer than usual.  

Along with reading at least 18 books this summer, I'd also like to consistently post on here every weekday this summer.  This is something I've struggled with doing since getting into college because of the hectic schedule.  Now, I'm just out of practice and really need to flex my creative blogging muscle to get this done.  Plus, I'll definitely need to share all my thoughts on the books I read!

Here are a couple of the books I'm most excited to read this summer!



 And there's so many more I'm eager to read! 

What are your summer reading goals?  How many more books do you have until you reach your Goodreads Reading Goal?  Have you read any of the books I listed?  Let me know in the comments below!


  1. Omg all those 6 books are on my TBR! Great choice. You're totally gonna complete your Reading Challenge! Have a nice weekend.

    1. They all sound (and look) so good! I've really been loving all the books that have released this year -- YA publishing is definitely doing pretty well. And I certainly hope so! I'm really excited for it!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Ayyyyyyy, 42 books is awesome! Nice job, lady! OMG I hope you love Bad Romance - that book broke my heart but also made me so happy (in the end). I loved Wolf by Wolf, and its sequel! Make sure you read the sequel. ;) Dimple was great too - hollaaaaaaa, Indian rep. :D :D :D I hope you read and enjoy those books, Ashtyn!

    Have a wonderful week. =)

    1. Thank you! And I hope I love it, too! It's on the top of my to-read list (though I'll admit, I'm a little nervous to read it just because of the tough subject matter). So many awesome books to read! Ahhhh!!

      Thanks for stopping by, Alyssa!

  3. I love When Dimple Met Rishi and Wolf by Wolf - I hope you do too. I also want to read The Upside...and Gentlemen's Guide (should have a copy of this on its way to me!!).Oh, and Eliz and Her Monsters. So many great books out now!
