Reading Challenge Update: Jan&Feb

Finally, here is an update for you guys about my reading challenges! As you know I took on quite a few this year so lets see how Im doing so far… (click on the challenge title to se what books I read for each one)

  • Goodreads Challenge of 55 Books24% OR 13/55
    Currently I’m at 13 books, so 5 ahead of schedule!
  • #RockmyTBR – Books I owned as of Jan 1 2016: 3% OR 1/35
    I thought I was doing really well on this one but when I looked back I have only one read 1 book towards this challenge! How? The other 13 books I read were all library books and a few new releases I ordered last year. I am really going to have to step it up in March!
  • Backlist Books – Books published in 2014 or earlier: 45% OR 7/16
    So far I have read 8 books towards my goal! I’m half way guys! However, part of the challenge is to review them… and so far I have only reviewed two with another on the way.
  • Finishing The Series Goal of finishing 6 series: 0% OR 0/7
    Why did I even sign up for this? I am so bad at finishing series! I am very sad to say I haven’t finished a single one. I read a sequel though! LOL Hopefully this changes in the months to come.
  • Flights of Fantasy Goal to read 16 Fantasy books: 31% OR 5/16
    As unlikely as I am to not finish 7 series I am likely to achieve this goal and greatly surpass it! I might have to up my goal number.
  • Around The World In 52 Books: 15% OR 8/52
    So far I have read 8 Books for this challenge so I am right on track! The topics I completed are..
    12. A childhood classic Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery
    29. A book by an author who writes under more than one name The Seventh Bride by Ursula Vernon / T Kingfisher
    35. An award winning book Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas
    36. An identity book – a book about a different culture, religion or sexual orientation The Abyss Surround Us by Emily Skrutskie
    37. A book that you’ve seen the movie of but haven’t read Matilda by Roald Dahl
    39. A previous suggestion that did not make it into the list – A graphic novel that everyone is talking about Rat Queens by Kurtis J Wiebe
    45. A book related to a hobby or passion you have Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
    52. A book published in 2016 Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

So I’m not doing to bad over all, I just need to work on reading more books I own and finishing some series. I have four buddy reads planned for March and I own all of them so that will quickly change things.
How are you doing on your reading challenges this year? Whats the best book you’ve read so far in 2016?

  1. Oh wow, that’s a lot of challenges! I said I’d sign up for more readalongs this year, but the ones I did so far didn’t go as well as planned.

    Goodreads is my number one challenge and so far I’ve read 14% of my goal (36/250). Decent, but I really need to catch up if I’m going to make it to the end.
