My Reading Goal: The Forgotten Garden By Kate Morton

Satisfactory Essays

At the beginning of the school year, I set a reading goal for myself for the first quarter. This goal was definitely attainable for me, but I knew I would have to put some effort into it. My independent reading goal was to read over 480 pages and to read a book by an author I had never read. This goal did challenged me in a way where I knew I would have to make myself read even when I didn’t want to, but it was not a goal that challenged me a ton. I believe that this was a good first quarter goal, but I look to build on it over the course of the year. A novel that I read this quarter was “The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton. The author of this novel does an amazing job of painting a picture in your mind. While reading “The Forgotten Garden”, I was able to really understand what was happening because of the vivid details.

Throughout this novel, Kate Morton wrote from three different points of view. I enjoyed this because it was different than any other book I had ever read before. I may have enjoyed reading this style, but it was not easy for me to read. I really had to put effort in to keeping each part of the story straight and realizing what time period it is in. This quarter I read only one novel, but I also read many news articles online. These articles were different than reading a novel and gave me a variety of reading material. All of these articles were non-fiction, which is good for me to read so I do not get into the habit of reading only fiction
