2019 Reading Challenge Update - Jan
So, we've survived January! Yeay!
That is a cause for celebration for January has absolutely sucked.
It's been reading slump central for me so far this year and it makes reading challenges a little bit difficult.
I have read some books and I have actually made some progress with some of my challenges! How exciting is that?
I may actually complete these this year! I know it's a bit early to declare that but I hopeful!
This year, I signed up for 4 reading challenges (not including the Goodreads Challenge) and 1 blogging challenge.
Details of them can be found in my 2019 Reading Challenge sign up post.
This month I have made progress as follows...
The Goal was to 10-12 books this year featuring royalty.
In January, I read this one!
The love interest is a prince.
My blog challenge... Each month a prompt is given and the goal is to write a blog post that fits it.
I failed to write one for January.
Guess, I'll need to write two in Feb!
My aim for this one was to read 10-15 books featuring bad boys...
I read no books featuring bad boys in January.
I'm not worried though. I love bad boys so I'll make this one up in no time!
This reading challenge is aimed at reading books published before 2019 and getting them off your backlist/TBR/wishlist...
I'm going to struggle to quantify my progress with this one as my wishlist/TBR is constantly shifting and so many books will qualify. I mean, if I read 50 books off the backlist but then added 60 back-listed books, I haven't really progressed at all on beating it, have I?
However, that's a problem to mull over later.
This month, I read 6 books from the backlist.
4 of these were on the TBR before this year but the other two were new additions added this year but published in previous years...
I'm aiming for 5 audiobooks this year.
In January, I listened to one!
I only listened while commuting so if I continue like this, I may need to revise up!
So, hows your challenges going this year?
