Challenge Update: July 2016

So I’m now about 7 months into my challenges and I realized it’s been 5 months since I posted an update. With my slack on reading I  figured now would be a good time to update everything and see if the progress can inspire me to pick up a good book. If anyone has any recs to read when suffering a book hangover tell me please!

Classics Club

This isn’t a yearly challenge exactly, I just need to read 50 books on my list in 5 years…So I have until December 2020. However, I want to try and read 10 this year so I don’t keep putting it off then all of a sudden I’m only reading classics for 6 months straight

Here’s what I’ve read so far

I’m a little behind but nothing this summer/fall can’t take care of…hopefully

41 of 40…I didn’t really envision myself having a hard time achieving this goal, that’s why I picked a lower number for me. But I also didn’t want to get wrapped up in the numbers and be afraid to pick up longer reads so here I am done with my goal in July and I am 100% okay with that.


Rory Gilmore Challenge

There’s no actual end date on this goal other than finishing the list so I haven’t been keeping track of it lately and by lately I mean it’s been about 6 months. That is on my to-do list and I’ll post an update when there actually is something to update

      Oh Same! and then I’ll read a book that fits a lot of categories but I want to mark it as the hardest category and always guess that wrong 🙂
