Why, hello book nerds!
I hope you are keeping safe AND making time to focus on your mental health.
This year, I decided to sign up for some reading challenges. While I adore reading, with my overwhelming tbr list, sometimes its nice to have challenges to point you towards a book. So here is a monthly roundup.
GOODREADS READING CHALLENGE
I challenged myself to read 150 books this year. I am currently at 65 books.
THE BACKLIST READER CHALLENGE
hosted by The Bookwyrms Hoard
This challenges rules are simple. If the book has been in your tbr list for a year or more, and wasn't published in 2020/2021, it counts. This months books that count toward this challenge is:
CHUNKSTER READING CHALLENGE
hosted by Impressions in Ink
Very simple challenge. Any book you read that is over 450 pages in their hardcover form, counts.
My Chunkster books for May, 2021 are: none! Boo! Its been a weird month for me
READ THE ALPHABET CHALLENGE
hosted by Do You Dog-Ear? and Shooting Stars Mag
Also a very simple challenge. Each month is assigned some letters. Read a book that starts with that letter. This month, the challenge was two books that started with I and J. I made a boo boo and mixed up my letters for this month and next month. So I only got ONE letter this month, with this novella Inking Him. My J was supposed to be Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating. :(
THE HISTORICAL READING CHALLENGE
hosted by The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader
I'm not a HUGE historical fiction reader, but I do enjoy it from time to time. I have challenged myself to read 15 books this year. Current count: 10
And once again it's a goose egg for me. Ugh. Such a weird reading month.
THE NETGALLEY AND EDELWEISS READING CHALLENGE
hosted by Socrates' Book Reviews
I'm not doing good on this one. haha. I challenged myself to get to level Silver, which is 25 books, but as of right now, I only have 4.
So that is it for this month! Are you signed up for any challenges? Host one? Let me know in the comments!
