At the beginning of the year I wrote a post talking about all of the reading challenges that I will be participating in in 2019. I thought it might be fun to update you every month to let you know how it is or is not going!
Last month I had read fourteen books, and this month I read eleven. I am pretty happy with that considering February is a short month and I have been in a bit of a reading slump these last few days. That means that I have read twenty-five of the fifty-two books that I planned to read this year. I am thinking of upping my goal!
I didn’t do nearly as well as I did last month! I only completely one of the prompts, but it was a game changer. I read my first manga!
Death Note by Tsugumi Ohba
It was fantastic and I will definitely be continuing on with the rest of the volumes. Since this was my first manga I have no recommendations for you. I would personally love recommendations though!
I also want to shout out Brain on fire by Susannah Cahalan. It is a book written by a journalist that I read this month. I already completed that prompt in January, but if you are looking for a book that fits I highly recommend it.
In January, I read twelve backlist titles; this month I read only six. I hadn’t realized until putting this post together that I read so many new releases this month. I will have to do better on this challenge in March! That said, the rest of the books I read were publishing in 2017 or earlier. No books from last year!
2017 or earlier: 6/11
Backlist Total: 18/25
