HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I only participated in 3 year long challenges Beat the Backlist, Witches and Witchcraft, and the A to Z Reading challenge. Here’s a small look at how those went for me. (I would love to include list of all of the books I read but that would be close to 200 books and that’s so much for you to get through. So if you have an specific questions please let me know.)
Beat the Backlist is hosted by Austine at Novel Night you can find the 2019 post here. All you have to do is read books published before the current year. That’s it. For 2018 I set a goal of 200 backlist books. I didn’t hit 200 but I read 164 so I’ll call that a win still. I’m looking forward to next years challenge.
The main focus of this challenge is to read books that feature Witches and/or Witchcraft. This is hosted by Melissa’s Eclectic Bookshelf . You can find her post here. I went into this so excited because I love Witches and Witchcraft. I thought I would get to 20+ Witchy books but sadly I only read 7. If I would have stuck with my bookclub books I would have totally crushed this but alas I am behind in my bookclub readings. Maybe I’ll try again next year.
The A to Z Reading Challenge is hosted by Ginger Mom Reads. You can find her original post here. I wish I could say that I finished this but I can’t. I am missing one letter. I read a book for every letter except for the letter Q. I’ve already signed up for next years challenge and I think I’m going to get Q done as quickly as possible.
Did you participate in any of these? How did you do?
