Challenge Updates: July Check-In

checkin

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 July rereads:

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. My July fantasy reads:

Title: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Author: J.K. Rowling
Date Read: July 5, 2015 – July 12, 2015
Type: Kindle Borrow

I had been planning to continue on with Harry Potter for a while and just never got around to it. I made a deal with a friend that I would read books 3 and 4 so I read 3 in June. Not my favorite of the 3 I have read so far but not awful either. I will finish this series if it kills me.

 

I was terrible in July. I am going to blame summer as I have been in the mood for romance and fun in the sun and mystery. August will probably be more of the same to an extent but I do want to reread Heir of Fire and I’m supposed to read Incarnate with a friend. We’ll see how it goes.

How did your challenges go for July?

  1. If you’re going to read one book, at least it was a good one! July was slow for me as well. I read 4 books, and two of thoses were under 300 pages. I thought I’d be so motivated and have so much time but summer makes me lazy and busy simultaneously haha. I’m sure August will be a better reading month for us both! 🙂
