It’s halfway through the year already (*insert cliched statement about how time flies and where did the year go here*) and therefore it is time to review where I’m at with my various reading challenges. Let’s have at it!
Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2017 – COMPLETE!
Hurrah! I signed on at Pike’s Peak level – or twelve books – for this challenge this year and I am happy to say that I have now scaled to those dizzying heights! You can check out the books I read here.
since some of the books on the list are a little thin and I haven’t yet got through all the books I wanted to finish for this challenge when I signed on, I’m going to extend my goal and try for Mount Blanc level – 24 books by the end of the year. This *should* be manageable, but I’ll have to really focus on getting those books read.
Epistolary Challenge – Progress Made!
I feel like I’ve made some progress on this one in the last few months. I’ve also acquired some epistolary novels in print copy or as review copies on Netgalley so I think this challenge is looking up. There’s no end goal or number of books to have read for this challenge, so I’m just seeing how I go at the moment.
Colour Coded Challenge – One Category to Go!
This was never going to be a challenge that I failed, but I’m well ahead of schedule here. I’ve only got the final category to go – a book with a pattern or rainbow on the cover – to complete the challenge, but I might extend myself and try to find more to fit the “any other colour” category.
Popsugar Challenge – Charging Ahead!
I’ve managed eighteen out of the 52 categories for this one and I’ve tried to really focus on this challenge in the last three months. There are a few categories that I could really fit most of my books into (eg: a book published in 2017) and some that I can’t imagine I’m going to get done (eg: a book that’s more than 800 pages). The trickiest part about this challenge is remembering to refer back to the categories each time I read a book. Perhaps I should print out the categories now I have printer ink…..
Wild Goose Chase Reading Challenge – stalled
I’ve read one book to contribute to this challenge since the last update. That means I’ve got three categories to go. Doable. Again, I just have to keep the categories in mind as I’m reading.
Have you signed up for any reading challenges this year? How are you going?
Until next time,
