3 Month Check-in: My 2018 Reading Challenges

At the beginning of the year, I committed to three 2018 reading challenges, plus one challenge I kind created myself, along with the annual Goodreads one. So five all up.

This post is to check in at the three month point to see how well I am progressing through the challenges! So far, I’m happy with my progress.

I’m steadily making my way through this challenge! So far, I’ve read 5 of the 18 books in this challenge! That includes:

  • A book published in 2018: Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi ★★★★.5
    (My choice for this category has changed because the previous one was Down by Contact by Santino Hassell and since his scandal, I don’t want to support him anymore.)
  • A book published the year you were born: The Complete Collected Poems of Maya Angelou by Maya Angelou ★★★★
  • A funny book: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows ★★★★
  • An award-winning book: Radio Silence by Alice Oseman ★★★★★
  • A book that will make you smarter: The Secret History by Donna Tartt ★★★★★

I’ve earned a badge for this reading challenge by finishing 3 series! YAY!! That’s:

I’m still waiting for quite a few of the books on my TBR to be released, so I haven’t had the chance to finish as many series as I’d like.

So this is the one challenge where I’m really kicking ass in because for all of January and February, all I read was ARCs. I’ve read:

THAT’S 19 BOOKS 💪🏼 So that means I’m on the BRONZE LEVEL (10 BOOKS) and am only 6 books away from the Silver Level (25 books)! I should definitely be able to reach the next level by the next check-in, around July.

MY OWN SORT-OF CHALLENGE: #LoveOzYA

I’ve only read TWO #LoveOzYA book in the past three months but nothing that was on my actual #LoveOzYA TBR 😰. I chalk this up to the fact that I’ve read so many ARCs and haven’t had the chance to read any other books, except for during March where I had to create a damn challenge to stop myself from reading ARCs.

The books I read were:

Hopefully by the time the next check-in happens in July, I’ll have read more!

At the start of the year, I set myself a goal of reading 100 books this year. So far, I’ve read:

That’s an insane amount of books, especially considering that last year it took me till August to read 50 books and this year it only took me till March 😂.
