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 upped by Goodreads challenge to 90 books for the year. I managed to read 11 books in April which brings my total to 49. Goodreads is telling me that I am 20 books ahead of schedule so I guess I could raise my challenge even more but I like to have that cushion just in case I get in to a reading slump or something comes up in the future.
An Epistolary Novel
Lady Susan by Jane Austen
I do not think this book would have worked if it was told in any other format. The letters added to the drama and you truly felt like you were in on the gossip!
84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chobsky
A Comic by an LGBTQIA Creator
Lumberjanes, Vol 1. by Noelle Stevenson
Lumberjanes is just as sweet and as charming as everyone says that it is. I can not believe that I waited this long to read it. I am looking forward to continuing on with the series and seeing what the characters get up to next!
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
I did better this month than I was expecting! Out of the eleven books that I read, five were backlist. That is almost half, which has been my pattern lately. I think I will be happy if at the end of the year about half of the books that I read were publishing in 2018 or earlier.
2017 or earlier: 3/11
Backlist Total: 3/11
