Reading Challenge Check-In

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

I feel as though I did a little better this past month. Nothing like January, but definitely better than the previous 2 months.

Here’s my May progress:

Alphabet Soup Challenge - Completed. There was also a bonus challenge for May that I completed.

Alphabet Soup Challenge - Author Edition - Completed

Craving For Cozies - 6 Cozy Mysteries read this month. I am out of the ‘Yearning’ category and into the ‘Starving’ 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 May:


My goal is to start searching out books to complete at least the 50 states. I have 22 states left to visit to accomplish this goal.

Cloak & Dagger Challenge -  5 Mysteries that fit their rules (100 + pages or the book doesn’t count). I’m well into the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ category.

Mount TBR - I managed to read 10 books from my TBR.  I’ve also read quite a few ARCs this month. I’ve completed my climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, and am now climbing El Toro. 

Keyword Challenge - This is different from the Bonus Monthly keyword challenge attached to the Alphabet Soup Challenge.  The Challenge for May were the keywords “Away, Wait, Book, Raven, Lake, Angel, Nine, Island”  I completed this challenge with the keyword “Away”

A Personal Challenge of mine is to track the number of pages read. So far this year, I have read 24,199 pages.

Overall, I read a total of 15 books in May, with a year to date total of 125. 

How are you doing with your reading challenges?
