2020 Reading Challenge Check-In (5 out of 6)

I’ve managed to shake off my reading slump at last and to finish two of my reading challenges! I’m not as far ahead as I was this time last year (I’m about 15 books behind) but I’m happy with how far I’ve progressed now. I only have a few books left to go on all but one and I’m going to try and focus on the first one I want to mention in particular…

A Dance With Books’ Turtle Recall

5/25 books

No progress again but, hey, at least my way is clear to binge on Discworld for the last two months of the year.

A Dance With Books’ Go Big or Go Home

8/9 books

No progress to report on this one. I started Words of Radiance recently but stalled reading it around the 15% mark in favour of finishing…

2019 Golden Trio Reading Challenge

52/52 books

Finished at last! I can finally put this behind me and stop feeling guilty for doing a Harry Potter themed challenge. Not that I regret doing the challenge itself. It was a lot of fun and it got me reading some great stuff.

GirlXOXO Monthly Motifs

  • September – When Text Just Isn’t Enough – The Ocean At The End Of The Lane by Neil Gaiman
  • October – Thrills and Chills – The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Two Neil Gaiman books in a row for this one! Definitely a good way to go.

Foxes and Fairy Tales’ Classic Women Reading Challenge

  • September – George Eliot: The Mill on the Floss
  • October – Emily, Anne or Charlotte Bronte: Agnes Grey (by Anne Bronte)

I was going to read Villette for the October challenge but I had to DNF at 50%. So, I went for Agnes Grey instead. I can safely say that, after that, Jane Eyre still maintains its top spot as my favourite Bronte novel.

Summer Reading Challenge 2020

9/9 books

Since I finished the last book on the 21st September, I finished right on time! Thanks again to Sabrina @ Notes From A Paper Plane Nomad for tagging me!

Goodreads 2020 Reading Challenge

123/150 books

According to Goodreads, I’m one book behind. At least, I have nothing but good ones ahead of me so I shouldn’t struggle too much to reach my goal.

Conclusion

Two down, four to go! With the biggest one out of the way, the next two months of the year looks like it’s going to be a total Discworld fest.

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.

  1. Oh wow you’ve done so well on so many challenges!! I need to look back and see how I did on the Summer Reading Challenge, I probably veered wildly off track 😂 You’re welcome for the tag! I get what you mean about the guilty feelings attached to Harry Potter-related stuff (I still feel weird about whether to read the illustrated editions I own), but I’m glad you enjoyed the challenge though and found some great books!!

    1. Thanks! In the end, I decided not to get rid of any of the HP-related stuff I already own. I’m just not going to buy more anytime soon.

      So, since you already own the illustrated editions, I think it’s okay to read them.
