Reading Challenges | June Update


This year I have taken on three different challenges, which I laid out in a post in December. To keep myself on track, I’m going to do a monthly update on where I’m at with each of my goals.

My goals:

  1. Read 75 100 books (Goodreads challenge)
  2. Read at least 25% non-fiction books
  3. Complete the 2018 AtoZ Reading Challenge

Goal #1: Read 75 100 books (Goodreads challenge)

Earlier this year I upped my Goodreads Challenge goal from 75 books to 100 books. I’m 17 books ahead of schedule currently, but I have several lengthy books in my queue, so that that will slow me down a bit.

Goal #2: Read at least 25% non-fiction books

I keep falling further behind on this goal, but honestly, I’ve read so many great books this year that it’s hard to be upset about it. I’ll have to see what I can do the second half of the year to ramp up this goal a bit! Right now I’m sitting at 11% non-fiction books for the year.

Goal #3: Complete the 2018 AtoZ Reading Challenge

As a reminder, the goal of this fun challenge is read one book from every letter of the alphabet. Check out my original post on this challenge here.

I didn’t get any new letters on my list this month, but that’s okay! I think I have the rest of the letters pretty well mapped out for the rest of the year.

  1. You look well on your way to meet your goals. If you want to know some good non-fiction The Witches by Stacey Schiff, The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel, and Irena’s Children by Tilar J. Mazzeo.
