So I’m a day late in posting this… whoops! I realized last night as I was getting into bed that it was May 31. (you would think I would have a better memory for dates since I work with calendars all day long, but I guess not!)
Back to the Classics Challenge: 3/9 (33.3%)
The number hasn’t changed, but I AM working my way through The Count of Monte Cristo and hope to have it finished to add to next (this) month’s wrap up!
What’s in a Name? Challenge: 1/6 (16.7%)
Still only at 1/6. I’ve neglected this challenge, but my hope is to increase this by 1 for next month.
50 States Challenge: 5/50 (10%)
No change since last month.
Historical Fiction Challenge: 5/20 (25%)
Well, I added 2 more to this challenge! Hooray. One I still haven’t reviewed… I’ll get to it, I swear!
Mount TBR Challenge: 3/25 (12%)
Stayed the same, but The Count of Monte Cristo will satisfy this challenge as well, so I know at least one more will be added for next (this) month’s wrap-up.
Overall Reading Challenge: 20/75 (26.7%)
This has increased by three, but based on that progress (3/month) I definitely won’t reach my goal of 75!
I think for next year I may hold back on the challenges, or not take part in as many. Not that I don’t enjoy them, it’s fun to post reviews and get people’s feedback, especially when they are people you would never have reached otherwise. But I think I feel restricted in my books, especially because I selected some of them at the beginning of the year when I began the challenge. Since I’ve charged myself with the task of reading specific titles, I almost feel bound to them and that I HAVE to read them, rather than want to read them. So if I do choose to participate next year, I think I’ll definitely be more relaxed about it. But I will continue to keep 75 my yearly goal until I meet or surpass it; then I’ll bump it up.
