At the beginning of the year I told y’all about all of the challenges I was planning on participating in this year so I thought I would let y’all know how I have been doing since we are at the halfway point of the year. Each month I add a Challenge Stats at the end of my wrap up posts if you want to know what each months progress is.
First up is my Goodreads reading challenge. At the beginning of the year I set my goal at 50 but I upped it because I knew I was going to hit that goal pretty early on. As of right now my goal is at 60 books but I think I might end up raising it again because I have already read 46/60 books. That puts me 16 books ahead of schedule. I am planning on doing a post probably sometime next week of all the books I have read this year so keep an eye out for that.
Next up is the Alphabet Reading Challenge. This is the first time I have participated in this challenge and I’m having so much fun with it. So far I have read 17/26 books that count for this challenge. If you are interested in knowing what books I have read for what letter and what letters I still have left to read you can go to 2017 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge to look at the list. I update that post every month so you can check there each month for my progress.
So I think I might have been a little over ambitious for this challenge. There was 8 levels ranging from 12,000 to 84,001+ pages. I decided to go with the second level of 24,000. That would have been 2,000 pages per month which I figured was doable but somehow I’ve managed to get behind by almost 2,000 pages. I have only read 10,447 pages so far this year. If I want to reach my goal of 24,000 pages read in 2017 I need to read 2,258 pages each month for the rest of the year. I am going to try to reach this goal but I’m a little skeptical about being able to reach it.
I am pretty much failing this challenge. Well maybe not failing but I’m not doing as good as I was hoping. My goal for this was to read 48 books and so far I have only read 13/48 so yeah not that great. I’m going to keep working on reading books that I have had on my TBR for a while but I highly doubt I will get 48 books read.
The last challenge I am doing this year is the ReReadIt Challenge. You’re supposed to reread 1 book each month. When I started this challenge I was doing so good but the past couple of months I have managed to get behind. So far this year I have reread 4/12 books. I know I want get 12 books reread but I am hoping to get back on track with this challenge.
That’s all the challenges I am doing this year and how I am doing with each one. As you can see I am pretty much half and half with how good/bad I am doing. How are you doing with your challenges for the year? Are we participating in any of the same challenges? I would love to hear from you in the comments below.
