Don’t you always feel like the year goes way too quickly these days? It’s like you blink in January and suddenly it’s October, the schools are back, and shops are going to start playing Christmas music any day soon. Don’t fret, we’ve got a season of Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas to get us through to Hallowe’en first.
Now is the ideal time to check in on my reading challenge from this year. As I showed last time, I pretty much knocked my Goodreads challenge out of the park, so it wasn’t really a big concern for me as the year drew to a close. But there are still two other big challenges to keep an eye on.
There’s always a sense of accomplishment when I post a challenge update, but today I’ve really got something to be proud of.
In my previous challenge update I had bitten off quite a large chunk of each of my categories. Time to see where I lie with them now.
The year is a quarter of the way through (I know, what!) so it’s time for a little check in on how my reading challenges are faring. Since I set them in January I’ve had quite a lot of downtime to get my read on, so has that made any impression on my actual reading?
I’ve just closed down last year’s reading challenge, and already it’s time to plan ahead for the new year. With a lot of ideas in store for Pretty Purple Polka Dots, what better way to start than laying out a brand new reading challenge.
With last year’s challenge being such a success, I decided to come back again for more. I’d had thoughts to set my own challenge up, but I couldn’t think of enough prompts to get me through the year. So, once again, I’ve asked for help from some of my favourite book haunts.
