I promised myself I’d give you guys an update of how all my challenges were going each month, instead of having a page dedicated to it like I did last year. So, here’s how I’m doing in the five reading challenges I’m attempting this year!
I won’t be explaining them in this post, so check out my post here if you’re unsure about what they are, or the pages I link to
My first challenge is the one I’m by far doing the best in; the e book challenge. I went on holiday for a week over the summer, and instead of bogging down my bag with physical books, I just brought my Kindle and a charger. In that week, I managed to finish A Healing Heart, Where You’ll Find Me (ARC), Vampire Witch (ARC), and Barefoot in White. On top of that, I’ve read Vicious! My aim was one a month, so I guess I’m allowed a break from e-books for a while! That’s 5/12 complete
I’m not doing too badly in the Flights of Fantasy challenge, but this month I’ll be much more focused on it. I’ve read Cinder, Vampire Witch, the Lost Hero, Illuminae, and Vicious. Actually, checking this made me realise I’m doing way better than I thought, so yay!! I have three on my TBR for this month though, which I usually don’t plan. That’s 5/10 complete (maybe I should up my goal?)
Rock My TBR is going SO WELL, sort of for the same reasons as the e book challenge. As well as all of my e books (which I owned), I’ve read Step by Step. So that’s 6/12 complete
Finishing the Series is another one I’ve been doing kind of terribly with… I have read five that technically fit the challenge, but they’re all the first in the series. Cinder, the Lost Hero, Illuminae, Vicious (which fits A LOT of challenges!), and a Healing Heart. So no actual progress on that challenge, dammit!
This year I (stupidly?) decided I wanted to try and complete the Popsugar 2016 challenge. It’s basically a list of specific books we try to read.
I’ve completed these categories:
Based on a fairytale: Cinder
Romance set in the future: Illuminae
Set in Europe: Step by Step
Sci fi: Vicious
Published in 2016: Where You’ll Find Me
Protagonist with your job (high school student, since I’m jobless): A Healing Heart
During summer: The Lost Hero
Murder mystery: Dark Places
That’s 8/50 complete
All in all, I think I’m doing pretty well so far! My reading will slow down now that school has started, but not too much I hope. A pretty good start to the year!
In other news, one of my other resolutions was to get my learners license, AND I HAVE!!! I got that at the end of January, so yay! This year looks like it’s going to be great 😀
How have you all been getting on with your challenges? Are you regretting agreeing to do any yet? Or are you doing way better than you expected, like me?
