Challenge Update, May

2 Jun

Summer is finally here and May is over! I just spent some time at the pool and it was wonderful. I can’t wait for more pool-side reading! So let me update you on those pesky challenges which I’m not too great at fulfilling. You can check out my reading challenges any time on my challenge page.

Books read in May:

Cabin Pressure by Josh Wolk
The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa
I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
The Geography of Memory by Jeanne Murray Walker

When Are You Reading? Challenge

6/13
This is my challenge to read a book from 13 different time periods. You can read about it here. My timeline tracks when my books take place and you can see that it’s a bit contemporary heavy. This is kind of unlike me so I’m surprised. I love historical fiction, but I haven’t been reading a lot of it. The book I hope to tackle next will be set in the 1920s so I have the potential for one more but the books I’m reading now won’t help much. No progress this month.

Where Are You Reading? Challenge

10/50 (+7)
Hosted by Sheila. In the challenge to read a book from every state, I took a little hop from 8 (+5). My map shows that I strangely read books set in New York and California disproportionately. I am happy to report that I added two new states and two new countries this month and I’m having a lot more success than I thought I would with this challenge. So I’ll check off Texas and Maine as well as Afghanistan and Japan. Woo!

Goodreads Challenge

24/35
I’m 10 ahead of schedule! I thought I’d start on some long audiobooks, but they’re all checked out from the library when I want to start them and I don’t plan well enough to place holds. I’ve got a few more short books lined up next so this may continue to be well ahead of pace. Is it about time to push out my goal? I’m thinking it might be!

How are your challenges going? I hope you’re not too far off pace just yet! If you want any more information about the challenges I’m doing or you’d like to join me, leave a comment and check out the links. There’s also information in my Challenges tab.

Until next time, write on.
