It’s time for another update on the three reading challenges I’m participating in this year (I first wrote about them here if you’re interested). All of the books basically fall under the #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks challenge, but for the sake of tracking eBooks and physical books, I’m keeping them
This month was fairly mediocre for the challenges. Aside from getting another three eBooks read, I crashed and burned (again) in the Read My Own Damn Books challenge, and only crossed off one task in the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge. And in other news, because I like to continually feel like a failure in my reading challenges, I’m going to be doing Book Bingo again (hosted by Books on the Nightstand). I failed at it last year, but I’m determined to fail less badly this year (haha). My bingo square is at the bottom of this post.
This challenge is officially over and my total for it was 10 eBooks read, but I’m going to continue to keep track of my eBooks read separate from the physical ones. This month I got rid of another three ARCs from my iPad:
- GodPretty in the Tobacco Field by Kim Michele Richardson
- Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel
- The Butchers of Berlin by Chris Petit
I don’t even know why I’m bothering with this anymore. I didn’t read ANY of my own books (purchased before December 31st, 2015) and purchased a whole bunch of new ones. This challenge has just been disastrous.
So far I’ve read 5 of my own damn books.
Just the one task crossed off this month:
- Read a horror book: Dark Matter by Michelle Paver
Number of tasks completed so far: 12/24
