Reading Goals for April Through June

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an awesome weekend! Today we’re going to be going over what my goals are for the second quarter of the year, even though April is almost over and I for sure have NOT done much of anything. But it’s fineeee.

So, let’s get right into this and don’t forget to let me know your goals!

Yearly Reading Challenges

So, I got a bit behind on reading challenges so I definitely want to catch up on those. Since I plan to take a look back at this post after the second quarter of the year is up, I’m going to just kind of list the goals and how many I would like to complete.

  • Read 50 Books – 25/50
  • A to Z Challenge – 13/26
  • 22 for 2022 – 11/22
  • Finish Series – 5
  • 12 Challenge – 6/12
  • PopSugar Challenge – 25/50
  • Linz the Bookworm Challenge – 30/60
  • 52 Book Club – 26/52
  • Beat the Backlist – 26/52

And then of course, I would like to keep trying to complete the monthly Buzzwordathon and Monthly Keyword Reading Challenge prompts. I missed one month and will likely miss April for both challenges, but that’s okay. I’ll be working on hitting the rest of the months.

6 Books I Want to Read

I figure if I choose 6 books then that will be 2-3 a month (since I haven’t really read anything in April) and that’s doable, even though my goals are technically calling for me reading WAY more than that.

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

This one is kind of cheating since I’m almost done with it already. But I’m still counting it so I can at least have one definitely read.

Somewhere Only We Know by Maurene Goo

I’m really thinking that contemporary romances are going to be the way to go over these next few months.

Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey

Like I said, contemporary romance. Plus this one REALLY captured my attention recently so I’m excited to get to it. Plus, it fits one of the monthly prompts.

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

I’ve been wanting to reread this book this year, but after hearing about the short story collection coming in November, I HAVE to. I can’t wait for that!

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune

If one more person says to read this book, I’m going to scream. In a good way, though. I cannot wait to read it and having so many people recommending it makes me want to read it more!

Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber

The fact I haven’t read this book makes me UPSET. I love Stephanie Garber and I LOVE this world. So I MUST get to this.

And that’s going to be it! I’m not setting too many goals this quarter because life is still wild. But I’m hoping to hit even just a couple of these.

If I don’t hit any, I’m definitely not going to be upset, though. I just like goal setting. I’m not pressuring myself or forcing myself. I’m just excited to be WANTING to read again.

Let me know some goals you have or books you want to read! Thanks for joining me and I’ll see you all soon!

My name is Amanda! I'm 25 years old with one son, Alex. He's my world and my everything. I have my Bachelor's degree in English and Creative Writing. I run the Instagram @acourtofbooksandlove, the A Court of Books and Love blog and YouTube. I hope to one day help indie authors/lesser known authors work to spread their name and get their book to where they want it to be and ready for the public's eyes. If you're an indie author, feel free to email me to see if I'm interested in your novel (whether it's already published or not). I mainly read romance, YA fantasy, and YA contemporary. When emailing, please provide a copy of the novel or a link to where I can find it. For business inquires, email me at:
