Challenges June Update

I have three challenges going on, only one since last year which is pretty low maintenance (GoodReads), and the other two are new to me.

I will be posting a general update for the month of June tomorrow, but in the meantime here’s how I have done in the three challenges until the end of the month of June:

GoodReads   |   20 Books of Summer   |   2015 Netgalley & Edelweiss

– GoodReads –

Monthly progress: 15/100

Total progress: 66/100

I set my yearly goal to 100 because it seemed like a number I could easily reach, since I planned to read fairly short books.
I am well ahead at the moment, so don’t feel the pressure to meet the goal. I know I will be reading much less in July, but hopefully I will get back on track in August, so all’s well!

 


– 20 Books of Summer –

Monthly progress: 14/20

Total progress: 14/20

As expected, not only did I not read several books in the order I had listed them, but I also read a few titles which were not featured in the original list of this challenge.
I am quite happy with the amount of books I managed to read and, who knows, maybe I will be able to read most if not all the titles in the original list.

Update on the original list (links to the reviews will be provided in tomorrow’s topic):

  • When a Child Is Born: A Chronicles of St. Mary’s Short Story – Needed a quick story to listen to while working out.
