In an effort to share more of myself with you guys I created Books for Life. I talk about my life outside of this sanctuary called the blogosphere. Hopefully you guys like getting to know the girl behind the blog a little bit more.
At the end of 2015, I set myself three reading challenges for 2016, and to keep myself and you guys (because you are, of course, riveted by my reading life) updated on my progress, I thought I’d do a check in at the end of each month! So, here is my update for April:
goodreads challenge – 150 books
I read fourteen books in April, which brings me to a total of forty seven books so far. Once again, as seems to be the norm with me, I was on track and now I am FIVE books behind. I don’t even know how because I think that fourteen books in one month is pretty great. Although, according to Goodreads, it is not. So far in May I’ve only read four books, so no doubt I’ll be even more behind come my next update. *grumbles*
When We Collided by Emery Lord
Broken Sky by L.A. Weatherly
The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry
The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler
lgbtqia+ challenge – 41-50 books
I read two LGBTQIA+ books this month (total for 2016 so far: fifteen). I am pretty disappointed that I only read two LGBTQIA+ books this month. I could say that it’s because I’ve been inundated with review copies recently, but I should still try to read some LGBTQIA+ books in between those. I’m likely behind on this challenge, but I know I’m going to read more in May!
None so far – reviews for both coming up soon!
indie lgbtqia+ challenge – 1 book per month
Unfortunately, I failed this challenge for the first time this year. I didn’t manage to read an indie LGBTQIA+ book in April, and I am really disappointed. I did read two in March, but the challenge is to read one every month. Hopefully I can read two in May to make up for it!
How are you going with your reading challenges for 2016?
