2018 Reading Challenges: 1st Quarter Update

2018 Reading Challenges: 1st Quarter Update

March 30, 2018 Challenges 1

I cannot believe that the first quarter of 2018 is already coming to a close!! It just doesn’t seem possible. I can’t say, however, that I’m sad to see it go. The 1st quarter has been rough for us! Flu, strep throat, medical emergencies….to put it in perspective my husband has met his deductible for the year AND his out of pocket max is also almost met. Despite all the sickness, this 1st quarter was a good reading quarter. I’ve read 34 books (maybe 35 by Sunday, we will see) so far this year and am on track to meet… Read more »

2018 Reading Challenges Accepted

2018 Reading Challenges Accepted

January 5, 2018 Challenges 4

In 2015 I discovered my love of reading challenges through a little challenge called #COYER. I fell in love and became a bit addicted. In 2016, I participated in my first year long challenges. I didn’t do so well, completing only half of those I signed up for. Last year, I had this grand plan. I said “go big or go home.” 😂 Yeah that didn’t work out so well. In June, I dropped out of 3 of the 8 I’d signed up for, and by the end of the year I had only completed 3 challenges 🤦🏼‍♀️ which brings… Read more »

2017 Reading Challenges Final Update

January 4, 2018 Challenges 2

I still can’t believe that 2017 is already over!!! Wow did the year go fast or what?! I’ve already established that 2017 wasn’t the best reading year for me and that’s ok. I guess…I’m hoping for a better year in 2018. As far as the reading challenges are concerned, I only managed to complete three of the eight I originally signed up for. See below for each individual challenge and check back tomorrow for my 2018 challenge sign-up 😀 The Audiobook Challenge 2017 is hosted by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Hot Listens. For this challenge, you simply listen to audiobooks. You can sign up anytime between now and… Read more »

2017 Reading Challenges: 2nd Quarter Update

2017 Reading Challenges: 2nd Quarter Update

July 1, 2017 Challenges 4

How is half the year gone already?! Welcome to the 2nd quarter update for my 2017 reading challenges. Honestly the 2nd quarter of 2017 sucked big time for me. Towards the end of February, there was some serious drama. I don’t want to rehash it here so if you want info click here. All you really need to know is that it knocked me off my reading horse. I’ve always loved to read but the drama took that away from me. June was a better reading month and I did find my love of reading again. But to put this… Read more »

2017 Reading Challenges: 1st Quarter Update

March 31, 2017 Challenges 6

How is the first quarter of 2017 already gone?! I know I say this every month, but TIME NEEDS TO SLOW DOWN! I didn’t do great during this quarter on my challenges. If you missed yesterday’s post, I suggest you read it to find out why. I won’t rehash the details here 😉 I’ll just say I’ve been super busy with our move. Oh and my son had his first baseball game last night 😀 March was pretty much a wash for reading, my juju was gone, but it’s coming back so I’m hoping for a more productive reading quarter… Read more »

2017 Reading Challenges Accepted…Part 2

December 30, 2016 Challenges 3

I’m back ? If you missed part 1, you can click here to see what challenges I’ve already signed up for. Because I’m a crazy girl and determined to focus on my reading this year, I found 8 challenges to participate in during 2017. In 2015, I discovered my love of reading challenges. In 2016, I tackled my first year-long challenges. I didn’t fare so well. I completed only 2 of 4 for the year. So in 2017, it’s go big or go home for me ? Thanks to Tanya @ GirlXOXO for creating this master list of reading challenges. All of the challenges start January 1st and… Read more »
