I can’t believe it’s the 1st November already! Time to see how I’m getting on with my goals.
Challenge 1 : Goodreads 2018
I feel as though this has been a really long month. There have been a few books that I’ve read that seem to have taken me ages to get through. Some because I’ve not enjoyed them, but others I just haven’t really had the concentration.
I’m now at 129% of my Goodreads goal. I’ve read 90 of the 70 I was aiming for – I’m hoping to get to 100 by the end of the year!
My book of the month this month goes to “Death on the River”, by Clare Chase.
Challenge 2 – Mount TBR
I’ve only knocked another one off the list this month – I got Black Beauty on Kindle last year – even though the edition I ended up reading was loaned from Mum. 21 read now, so another 3 to go!
Challenge 3 – The 2018 Reading Challenge
I’m back on track for this challenge now – this month I read another 2 books for the 12 book challenge. The first was “Banned Book”, for this I read “Black Beauty” by Anna Sewell – apparently it was banned during the Apartheid era in South Africa as it had the word “black” in the title. The second was “Book by an author of a different race, ethnicity or religion than your own” – I’ve just finished “A Rising Man” by Abir Mukherjee. I now have 2 challenges left – “Book that’s more than 500 pages”, which I’m dreading as I really don’t like big books, and “Recommended by a librarian or indie bookseller”.
Challenge 4 – Old School Kidlit
Another 2 books of the 6 done – so I’m kind of back on track. I read “The Railway Children” and “Black Beauty”.
I’m really happy with my progress this month – how have you got on?
