#COYER Summer Vacation, Can You Read a Series in a Month, and ARC August – Challenge Complete!

Posted September 5, 2016 by Lillian in Challenges / 4 Comments

August saw the end of three reading challenges: ARC August, Can You Read a Series in a Month, and #COYER Summer Vacation. Honestly I didn’t do so well with these challenges, especially the first two. I way underestimated my lack of time this summer with our move and little man starting school. Oh well, you win some, you lose some I guess 😀

#COYER 2016 Summer Vacation

COYER-Summer-Vacation-2016

For this challenge, you just had to read. Anything and everything counted! The rules are pretty much out the window during the summer COYER which I was thankful for. I challenged myself to read 20 books over the three months and I managed to read 26 total and reviewed on the blog 21 of those. This is the only challenge I can honestly say I completed this Summer ?

2016 ARC August

For this challenge, you were supposed to read only ARCs, any review copy and review it. I failed! I challenged myself to 10 books, thinking that surely I could do this as I usually average around 3-4 books a week. I did not account for little man starting school and the early wake up call causing me to fall asleep whenever I sat still. I only managed to read and review 7 out of 10 ARCs. Originally I had challenged myself to read 10 from my Netgalley pile. Unfortunately only 1 of my 7 came from Netgalley. Sad of me I know….

Can You Read a Series in a Month?

The answer to that question is apparently no I can not! I’ve never had this issue before and I really do blame my lack of planning on not being able to read a three book series. I had you guys vote and the winner was The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski, which has been amazing so far! However I only managed to read the first two books last month, and as you can see in my currently reading widget, I’m still reading the last book. I royally failed this challenge!

  1. I’ve been following this one with interest. I appreciate that you may have failed to fulfil the challenge you set yourself – but you still read 26 books and reviewed 21. And you moved. And you have a small person who needs a lot of your time… Actually, I think you’ve managed awesomely. Sometimes, we are not kind enough to ourselves. I’m betting if you saw those stats against a friend’s post, who had also undergone your life-changing circumstances, you would be admiring and enthusiastic about their achievement:).
