Reading Challenge Check-In
Time to check in for a monthly accountability on the Reading Challenges I’m participating in
March came and went quickly for me. I feel as though I’ve dropped the ball on a lot of things.
Here’s my March progress:
Alphabet Soup Challenge - I was aiming to complete a second round. I’m still chasing that elusive title for X. There was also a Bonus keyword challenge attached for the month of March that I completed.
Alphabet Soup Challenge - Author Edition - This was completed in February, but still working on a second round.
Craving For Cozies - 14 Cozy Mysteries read this month. I’m about halfway through the ‘Yearning’ category.
Literary Escapes - I read a lot of books that didn’t have a definitive location, and a few that were repeat locations, but I have ‘visited’ these new locations during the month of March:
Cloak & Dagger Challenge - 14 Mysteries that fit their rules (100 + pages or the book doesn’t count). I’m scratching the surface in the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ category.
Mount TBR - I only managed to read 5 books from my TBR. I’m reading quite a few more ARC’s, and that’s slowing me down on this big climb. I’m nearing the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Keyword Challenge - This is different from the Bonus Monthly keyword challenge attached to the Alphabet Soup Challenge. The Challenge for March were the keywords “Dear, Ink, Mercy, Fly, Lost, Never, Match, True” I chose Mercy as my keyword and completed the challenge with the book “Mercy & Mayhem” by Ava Mallory.
A Personal Challenge of mine is to track the number of pages read. So far this year, I have read 18,525 pages.
Overall, I read a total of 19 books in March, with a year to date total of 102.
While March seemed to be a bit of a slow reading month for me, I’m doing far better than what I was reading this time last year.
How are you doing with your reading challenges?
