Happy New Year


Let’s see how I did on my 2017 Reading Challenges! I tag them at the bottom of books that I review and then mark them as completed with my challenges. Currently, I participate in Modern Mrs. Darcy’s challenge, Popsugar’s Reading Challenge and the BookRiot Read Harder Challenge.

Let’s talk about Modern Mrs. Darcy first. I did great with hers. I completed all of the challenges in the Reading for Growth portion. Which is great. Love growth. In the Reading for Fun portion I did not complete

  • a book you don’t want to admit you’re dying to read – because I will admit I love reading all things, so nothing really seemed to fit that one
  • a book in the backlist of a new favorite author – I tend not to backtrack much but that would have been a good one to complete

I also did really good with Popsugar. They have many more challenges and I completed all but 7 (out of 40!).

  • a book recommended by a librarian – I’m certain I completed this because I work with librarians all day long but for some reason I left it blank
  • an espionage thriller
  • a book with career advice – I put You are a Badass and How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge on hold and then never read them so that’s my fault
  • a book you loved as a child – I meant to read The Westing Game or Johnny Tremain but didn’t
  • a book with a month or day of the week in the title
  • a book that’s becoming a movie in 2017 – all the books I read that are becoming movies are doing so in 2018 *shakes fist*
  • a book you bought on a trip – I don’t go on trips

Last, BookRiot. I completely failed BookRiot. Instead of telling you the ones I didn’t complete (13 of 24) I’m going to tell you the ones I did because I guess that’s easier. Let me tell you why I failed though. I do these challenges wrong. I admit it. I read books I would’ve already read and then fill them in to the challenges. I don’t look at the challenges and then find a matching book. And that’s what you have to do with BookRiot.

And there you have it. If you want to try these challenges with me in 2018 the links are below.
