Reading Challenge Check-In January 2021
Time to check in for a monthly accountability on the Reading Challenges I’m participating in
I can’t believe how quickly this month has flown by. As you may or may not recall, I was a little unsure about taking on these challenges as it took me practically a full year to get through one book last year. As it turns out, the problem wasn’t me. It was that book! After completing that book, I managed to quickly read 12 more short books to meet my GoodReads goal, plus one.
By the time January 1 rolled around, I was amped up and ready to do some serious reading.
Here’s my January progress:
Alphabet Soup Challenge - I’ve managed to read something that represents all of the letters, with the exception of the letter R. This will be completed in February. There was also a Bonus keyword challenge attached for the month of January that I completed.
Alphabet Soup Challenge - Author Edition - As with the Title Challenge, I’ve managed to read something that represents all of the letters, but this time with the exception of the letters N & Y. Yep, these will also be completed in February.
Craving For Cozies - 29 Cozy Mysteries read. This puts me into the ‘Famished’ category.
Literary Escapes - I read a lot of books that didn’t have a definitive location, but I have ‘visited’ these locations so far:
Isle of Man
Cloak & Dagger Challenge - 30 Mysteries. This puts me into the ‘Inspector’ category
Mount TBR - I’ve managed to knock out 27 books from my TBR list that continues to grow faster than I can keep up! I still have well over 15,000 titles on my TBR list. While I’m currently now in the ‘Mount Vancouver’ category, I have a feeling I’m going to be climbing A VERY LONG TIME…
Keyword Challenge - This is different from the Bonus Monthly keyword challenge attached to the Alphabet Soup Challenge. The Challenge for January were the keywords “End, Princess, Dance, Midnight, Court, Why, Winter, Story” I chose Midnight and completed the challenge with the book “Chasing Lady Midnight” by CL Ragsdale
A Personal Challenge of mine is to track the number of pages read. So far this year, I have read 6,948 pages.
Overall, I read a total of 45 books in January. You can see the books that I have read this year HERE.
I’d say that January was a HUGE success! How are you doing with your reading challenges?
