2020 Reading Challenge Check In (1 out of 6)

2020 has been great for reading so far. I’ve been able to keep to my New Years’ Resolutions regarding getting my books from my local independent and my library and my Reading Challenges aren’t going too badly either.

A Dance With Books’ Turtle Recall

2/25 books

This one has been unintentionally neglected. I’ll have to focus more on this in the future. On a positive note, my library is well stocked with Discworld books so it’s certainly helped me stick to my New Year’s Resolution!

A Dance With Books’ Go Big or Go Home

2/9 books

I have definitely learned my lesson from last year and am not leaving the biggest books until the last minute again! I would have achieved 3 out of 9 but I DNFed Rob Roy and I don’t think that counts so I’m going to pick something else for the Classics.

2019 Golden Trio Reading Challenge

13/52 books

I’m doing pretty good so far. If this pace continues, I should be able to finish this reading challenge by May. If my experience from last year taught me anything, however, it’s that reading challenges get harder as you progress and you have to actively look for books to fulfil them. I’ve just been reading whatever I fancied and was able to find a slot for it in my reading challenges. Easy enough in the early months but not so easy later down the line.

GirlXOXO Monthly Motifs

I’ve had to adjust my plans for March slightly. I had no idea The Dracula Tape was so hard or expensive to get hold of. It’s definitely out of my price range so I’ve changed it to Varney the Vampire instead. It’s lucky that my reading plans don’t lack for vampire stories!

Foxes and Fairy Tales’ Classic Women Reading Challenge

This is another one where I had to change my plans slightly due to the previously chosen book being inaccessible. Castle Rackrent was a lot cheaper and easier to get hold of than Ormund and it was fun to read too!

Goodreads 2020 Reading Challenge

26/150 books

I’m three books ahead of schedule according to Goodreads. Looking good!

Conclusion

All but Turtle Recall is going great but I can’t get complacent. I need to have a good think about how I’m going to be as positive about my challenges this time next check-in. Still, this is a good start to 2020 and I’m very pleased with myself.

Have you taken on any reading challenges? How are they going for you so far? Let me know in the comments below.

I hope to see you again very soon.
