March Goals Check In (including #MarchMysteryMadness

Happy Easter to those who celebrate it!

I’m aware this post is going up unusually late – but I’ve been out with family and I’ve ended up coming back, flopping on the sofa and unable to think straight for a couple of hours!

Anyway, here’s how I got on in March:

March Mystery Madness – an additional challenge

I’m delighted to say I completed all the challenges for this! Six books read for six different challenges.

Challenge 1 – 2018 Goodreads Goal

I managed to read 6 books and did not finish a 7th. The 6 books are:

The Wages of Sin, by Kaite Welsh (Historical Challenge)

Murder in the Garden, by Faith Martin (Already on my Shelf)

The Dry, by Jane Harper (Foreign)

Night Market, by Daniel Pembrey (Borrowed from Library)

Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death, by James Runcie (Opposite from what I normally read – a collection of short stories).

Holy Island, by LJ Ross (an author who is New to me)

Book of the month for me was the Sidney Chambers. Any reviews not on my blog are available on Goodreads.

I’ve now read a total of 22 books, which is still 5 ahead, but I’m now 31% towards my goal.

Challenge 2 – Mount TBR

2 books from Mount TBR this month – “The Wages of Sin” and “Sidney Chambers”. That’s now 7 towards 24, and I’m happy with that.

Challenge 3 – The 2018 Reading Challenge

I’ve decided to use “The Dry” towards the challenge of “A Book recommended by someone with Great Taste”. It was recommended by several Booktubers whose opinions are generally similar to mine. I’ve also picked “Murder in the Garden” towards the challenge of “A book by a favourite author”. I’ve now completed 3 of 12 challenges, so I’m on track.

Challenge 4 – Old School Kidlit Reading Challenge

Having been busy reading for March Mystery Madness, this one slipped again. I’m meant to be doing 6 and so far I’ve read none!

How was your month?

  1. I’m way behind on my challenge which is to read 100 this year. I’m curious what’s behind each theme and how you choose? I like to hear about different challenges to jazz my reading up.

  2. I’m impressed you’re tackling 6 reading challenges at once. I feel bogged down if I have more than lol
    Recently acquired Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death so I shall return to have a look at your review once I’ve read it.
