2017 Reading Challenge Updates (Q2) – June

 

Well it’s June and time for my second quarterly reading challenge update for 2017.
Where has the year gone?

 

 

My Goodreads challenge I set my reading goal to 100 and I’m currently at 92 books read. Looks like this year I’m going to exceed my goal. Last year I was struggling to meet what I set, so I decreased my goal. Look’s like next year I’ll have to bump it back up.

You can swing on by my goal page to see what I’ve read.

  2. You are doing so well on all your challenges, Angela! Way to go! I’m finally caught up on my GR challenge so far, I was 15 books behind, and now I’m five ahead… I’m quite happy with that. I’ve also read three blogger shame books this past week, so that’s good too, I guess.
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading 🙂

    • Thank’s Lexxie. I’m proud of what I’ve done so far on my challenges. Goodreads I just haven’t found the perfect number yet. A few years I made it too high and struggled to complete and other years too low. I’ll kick it up a little for next year, but I’m glad it’s almost done for this year. ^_^

  3. You’re blowing this challenges out of the water! Congratulations!
