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!
I mentioned last month that I was considering upping my Goodreads challenge, and I finally did. I have decided to change it from 52 books to 90. I might adjust it in the future if I need to. I never take this challenge too seriously, and just think it is a bit of fun!
The Subversive Copy Editor by Carol Fisher Saller
I read this book for my Publishing program, and I would not recommend it unless you have an interest in copy editing. If it is something you are interested in pursuing, I definitely think this book is a great place to start.
Bad Blood by John Carreyrou
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE (Haven’t read this yet but on my TBR)
A Book By or About Someone that Identifies as Neurodiverse
The Bride Test by Helen Hoang
This book is both by and about someone won the austism spectrum. It is a wonderful romance, and the best neurodiverse rep that I have ever read. I have raved about this book so much this month, but it is just that good.
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
I had a lot of ARCs to catch up on this month, so I am actually pleased that I managed to read as many backlist titles as I did this month. Six of the twelve books I read this month were backlist titles. I think 50% isn’t too bad! I have also changed by backlist goal from 25 books for the year to 45. I figured if my plan was to read 90 books in 2019, I would like at least half to be backlist titles.
2017 or earlier: 2/12
Backlist Total: 24/45
