For most book bloggers and avid readers, there’s one common and pressing question – how long will it take to get through all the books I have to read, so I can buy new books guilt free?
I have so many Netgalley and physical ARCS to get through, I think I’ll have to dedicate an entire month to clearing the shelf. So, I’m going to be super basic and spend April taking on the ARC Challenge. There are a couple of other book bloggers who often take this challenge in April or August, and I’m going to throw my hat in the ring this month.
The rules are pretty simple: all I can read this month are ARCs, either the ones on my Kindle or the physical copies on my shelf. For every one I finish, I’ll still put the Euro into my jar, so it’s still a boost for all my final year tallies. At the end of the month, I hope to have reached 10 ARCs finished and reviews ready to go (even if they have been out for a while. Oops.) If I do tick off 10, I will treat myself to a brand new book at the end of the month. So, here we go.
This post is part of Top 10 Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
There are a few things that will make me pick up a book the minute I hear about it. I am a woman of simple pleasures. There’s a couple of things to do with plot that draw me in straight away, but I do admit to being a little superficial, too.
Every three months, I like to check in on the progress of my reading challenge throughout the year. I sliced a little off my reading challenge this year, both in terms of the prompts I’ll be filling in and how many Goodreads books I want to tick off. So, now the first three months of 2019 are behind us, how did my reading fare? Does it look like I’m on course to boss this challenge again? Continue reading
March was a pretty successful reading month for me, and it’s a month I definitely want to start tracking my monthly reads on my blog. I’ve never done a monthly wrap up post before, so bear with me while I get used to the ropes.
I spent a lot of time travelling in March, whether that was the week I spent in eastern Europe or the commutes across the cities around where I live now. So there was lots of opportunities for me to get turning some pages. I embraced them with open arms, and I got a lot of reading done throughout the month.
