2017 Challenges : Mid Year Check-In

Reading Challenges: 2017 Discussion Challenge

It’s hard to believe it is June already and time for my mid-year challenge update. This is a good wakeup call since I’m not doing good on two of these challenges. I’m doing great on the Audiobook Challenge and New Release Challenge but I need to improve on the Blogger Shame Review Challenge by reading more ARCs. I plan to read old ARCs during the COYER Summer Reading List Challenge which starts on June 17th. I have also been doing bad on the Discussion Challenge because I haven’t had that much blogging time this last month, but life is now not as chaotic so I plan to write up more discussion posts. One thing that is working right is my tracking of the challenges. I love using the UBB Reading Challenge plugin and below are my stats.

      Thanks Katherine and I’m trying to do better with the ARCs. It is hard because I have so many or I am tempted to read a newer release.

      I really liked Marguerite Gaven and now I need to get caught up on the series. Thanks Melanie!
