So I decided to start doing a monthly wrap-up to help myself get more organized and see how much I have left to do it my challenges. I’ve seen this done on a few blogs and like to see the progress listed in one place. So here goes my first attempt.
Back to the Classics Challenge: 3/9 (33.3%)
I really need to pick up the pace with this one. This was the first challenge I signed up for. When I first started it, I had a whole idea of how I wanted to complete it (in conjunction with my other challenges) but that whole thing turned on its head. Now I’m just reading what I want, when I want and if it fits in a category, then yay! But, I may have to throw Moby Dick to the side and find another book for the first category. I haven’t picked it up since putting it down back in January and I don’t think I can bring myself to try again… But I won’t give up yet!
What’s in a Name? Challenge: 1/6 (16.7%)
I’ve definitely neglected this one. I think it’s because most of the books I selected for this were on my TBR list on Goodreads, but I don’t actually have them yet…so I should take a look on Amazon and see if I can get some cheap for the Kindle, or if I can borrow digital copies from my library. (it’s way easier for me to borrow digital copies than actually get to the library!).
50 States Challenge: 5/50 (10%)
I still haven’t even selected all 50 books for this. It’s much more difficult than I thought! I do have 11 listed (not including the ones I’ve read) for some of the states, but that still leaves quite a number of states without a book. When I read my books I keep in mind where the setting is so I can try to add it to this challenge. Though, most often, I’ve already read a book that takes place in that state, or the story takes place in a different country… any suggestions???
Historical Fiction Challenge: 3/20 (15%)
Since there are no categories, I have a bit more freedom in this. Even though I’m not very far in the challenge, I’m not concerned because I know I’ll fill this list by the end of the year.
Mount TBR Challenge: 3/25 (12%)
I have MANY books on my Kindle and my physical book shelf to fill this category…I just need to read them! Again, not really concerned with this, plus I only signed up for it in March. I’ll get it done by the end of the year!
Overall Reading Challenge: 17/75 (22.7%)
I only have 16 listed because I still haven’t written the review on my most recently finished book. I’ll get it up there sometime this week.
