this year I set myself two reading challenge; the Goodreads yearly reading challenge and my own monthly reading challenges.
I planned to read 50 books this year and I ended up reading 71! I am really proud of this because I didn’t think I was going to read 50 books in November, so I’m really glad that I just read a lot after exams finished. If you’d like to see all the books I read this year you can check out my year in books on Goodreads!
I decided to create my own monthly reading challenges, inspired by Emma from emmmabooks (on YouTube) tbr challenge jar, in order to read a wider range of books.
I thought it’d be nice to have a post where you all can see all twelve reading challenges and what books I read to complete them.
I do not know what month all of these reading challenges belong to as I sort of lost track of them by the end of the year
- read a book that’s been sitting on your shelf for a while – Iron Trials by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
- read a book from a genre you usually ignore – Minor by Meghan McDonnell
- read a book from an author you’ve never read from before – I’m the King of the Castle by Susan Hill
