Along with my Goodreads Challenge (you can find my progress on the side bar) I also challenged myself to 3 other challenges for 2016. Every month I will check in with my challenge updates.
Love at First Page and Gone with the Words 2016 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge. You can find out all the details you need to know HERE. There are different levels to this challenge and I decided to go for the grand slam level.
Author: Jay Crownover
Dates Read: May 4 – May 9
I love a good Crownover book. Her characters are always so fun. I was on the blog tour for this one and although it wasn’t my favorite I did enjoy it. If you haven’t read her books I suggest starting with the Marked Men series and then moving on the this series. Built is my favorite of hers. (REVIEW)
Title: Summer Skin
Author: Kirsty Eager
Dates Read: May 25 – May 29
I’m still trying to work out how I feel about this book. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. There were parts I really enjoyed, like the sarcastic banter, but other things I just couldn’t get behind. And I had a hard time with one scene I thought was super icky. A review will be coming at some point I think.
I didn’t really read a lot this month since I was in Mexico and then dealing with work and catch-up after Mexico. Plus I read ACOMAF which was 624 pages. I read only 4 books in total so 2 for this challenge not bad at all. So far this year I have read 19 for this challenge.
Sarah at The YA Book Traveler is hosting Rock My TBR challenge. It is no secret that as book bloggers we have a lot of books that don’t get read. We get busy or getting something new and shiny (we are an easily distracted bunch) and things we were excited about reading don’t actually get read. This is my chance to change that and to read some of the books that have been collecting dust since before I was blogging. You can find more information HERE
I did not ROCK MY TBR this month. OOPS.
So far I have read 3.
Lauren from Bookmark Lit is hosting The Must Read in 2016 “Challenge”. This challenge isn’t really a challenge per say. More a way to push yourself to read some books you were excited about in 2015 that you just never got to. Find out more HERE. This challenge will over lap a lot with Rock My TBR. Because of that I am just going to post a picture of what I read in the month from my original post:
Same in May as it was in April. I swear I will read one in June.
How did you do in your May Challenges?
