Reading Challenge Check-In April 2021


Time to check in for a monthly accountability on the Reading Challenges I’m participating in

April has come and gone, and I’ve been quite the slacker when it comes to reading.

Here’s my April 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 April  that I did not complete.

Alphabet Soup Challenge - Author Edition - This was completed in February, but still working on a second round.

Craving For Cozies - 5 Cozy Mysteries read this month. I have another 4 books to read to complete 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 April:

None (yup, I’m a slacker!)

Cloak & Dagger Challenge -  5 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 didn’t read any from my TBR list this month.  I’ve spent my month reading 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 April were the keywords “Last, Watch, Save, Girl, Sun, Tell, Garden, Tomorrow” I did not complete this challenge for April. 

A Personal Challenge of mine is to track the number of pages read. So far this year, I have read 20.095 pages.

Overall, I read a total of 8 books in March, with a year to date total of 110. 

While April 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?
