March Wrap-Up and Challenges Update

march

I absolutely cannot believe that March is already over! Where on earth did it go? I didn’t read as much as I had hoped I would, but I didn’t do too badly- managed to read 9 books ūüôā I knocked another classic off of my Classics TBR list, added a few more books read in my series challenge, and also knocked a few more off of my Chunkster’s Challenge.


March Wrap-Up 

As I mentioned I managed to read 9 books this month. I had set out to read a lot more, but I was sick for 2 weeks and just couldn’t manage to read. I’m happy for at least reading 9 books, but I didn’t finish all the books I wanted to.

Everything Is Illuminated by Johnathan Safron Foer (Review)

My A to Z challenge is coming along nicely. To date I have managed to finish 4 books off of my list! That means I only have 22 left! YAY!

At the end of February I had managed to finish 2 out of the 5 chunksters I had set out to read by the end of the year. This month I managed to read 2 more chunksters (and start 2 more!)

Classics Club 

I have set out to read 1 classic a month for this year, and so far have been managing to do that. This month, the Classics Club had a Classic Spin where they had you make a list and they chose a number off of that list and that was the book you were to read (wow that I was a terrible explanation!). Anyways, I managed to finish that book!

Book I read: 

Everything Is Illuminated by Johnathan Safron Foer (Review)

Progress: 3/12


Series Challenge 

I didn’t manage to finish any series this month but I managed to start a fair number, so I’m happy about that. My original goal was to read 6 series, but I’m thinking I might increase that number.

Series I Started This Month: 

Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson (Review to Come)

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness (Review to Come)

The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard (Review)

Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
