Challenge Updates: January Check-in

Posted January 30, 2015 by Andi in Flight of Fantasy, Re-Read Challenge, Reading Challenges / 6 Comments


Along with my Goodreads Challenge (you can find my progress on the side bar) I also challenged myself to 2 other challenges for 2015. Every month I will check in with my challenge updates.

Re-Read Challenge

Back in December I signed up for The Re-Read Challenge hosted by Belle of the Literati and So Obsessed With. Honestly I didn’t expect this to be a problem and so far it hasn’t. I’m on track to reach my goal of 12-14 books without a hitch. My January reads:

Title: Anna and the French Kiss
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Date Reread: January 1, 2015
Type: Hardcover

I read this book 10 times. You all know my thoughts on it. You all know how much I love it. You all know how I want to read it 10 more times. It is just the epic feel good book and I’m proud to call it my favorite.

Original review found HERE.



open2Title: Open Road Summer
Author: Emery Lord
Date Reread: January 5-7, 2015
Type: Audio

I loved Open Road Summer the first time I read it. It is one of those books you just want to hug when you are done. This time I decided to do the audio and it was just as good the second time around. In fact listening to it made me just want to read it again.

Original review found HERE.



I also committed the the Flights of Fantasy challenge run by Alexa Love Books and Hello, Chelly. As you may have heard, I am new to the fantasy genre (thank you Sarah J. Maas and Throne of Glass for this!) and I thought it would be good for me to challenge myself with this one. I have decided to do 12 so I only have to read 1 a month, but I’m off to a great start. The full reviews for this books will be coming soon.


Red Queen
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Date Read: January 5-8, 2015
Type: eARC

A little Hunger Games meets Divergent at the end, but enjoyable. Some holes in the story but I still became addicted and needed to know how it would end. And end it did. Now I need book 2.

Check back for the full review.





Grave Mercy
Author: Robin LaFevers
Date Read: January 23-26, 2015
Type: Paperback

I fought reading this one until I was basically book bullied into it by like 16 bloggers and 1 author and it was gifted to me. I will say, I’m glad you are all so persistent. I really enjoyed it and LOVE Ismae and Duval.

Check back for full review.

  1. Sounds like you’re doing great so far! I’m doing pretty good with my challenges too. Despite telling myself that I was going to take it slower this year, or maybe because there’s less pressure as a result of that, I’m actually excelling at my challenges.

    I have to ask though, because I loved Open Road Summer too, in the audiobook are the lyrics sung or just read?
