Monthly Challenge Update – November 2018

Yass! I was a review writing machine this month! Actually what really happened was that I tried extra hard to write about books that I have read immediately after I read them, so that I wouldn’t forget. The only bad thing about that is not giving myself enough time to think about how I really felt, which results in my changing my mind a little later about how I see it. OH WELL! I also went hard on the graphic novels this month. I needed a pick me up and graphic novels are so fulfilling. I honestly don’t know why I don’t read more of them.

Challenge Check-In

Beat the Back List

 

POPSUGAR

 

Book Riot Read Harder

 

Here’s the thing guys, I beat my Goodreads challenge this year! And seeing as it is just about the only challenge I cared about by the end of 2018, I am going to count that as a win. As of right now, I have read 59 of 50 books!

Unfortunately, I have a lot of required reading to do before mid-January, so I do not expect to read anything for myself between now and that time. For the next two months my “On My Radar” and “Must Read” features are suspended. I am sorry if this makes you sad :[ You can keep up with my required reading though! I am sure to post a bit about those in upcoming blog posts.

  1. I’ve read The Prince and the Dressmaker and Hocus Pocus! I absolutely adored The Prince and the Dressmaker! I don’t usually read graphic novels, and this one made me want to pick up more. I liked Hocus Pocus for the nostalgia factor. Congrats on completing and exceeding your Goodreads challenge!

  2. Wow, congrats on doing so well this past month! I do think writing reviews soon after reading the books is extremely helpful, though I rarely do it… There are so many I have to catch up on! Still, great job and it’s nice that you read so many graphic novels as well 🙂 I agree that they can be great to keep reading slumps away and to change things up a bit.
    My November was quite busy. Besides life in general, I had a readathon going on, one I somewhat fulfilled but didn’t quite finish, though I was still proud of how much I was able to read.
    I hope you have a lovely December as well!

    1. Thank you so much! Graphic Novels really are so wonderful, I need to work harder at keeping them a regular fixture in my reading. As far as writing reviews as soon as I finish books- what I have found that has helped me a whole lot is my reading “journal” or log book. I write all the details in it when I start a book, and then when I finish, I put my star rating, and any little comments I have down.
      I got my log book here for now too much: https://www.amazon.com/Book-Lovers-Journal-Reading-Organizer/dp/1441304827/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1543868680&sr=8-3&keywords=reading+log
