Jan. 2020 Challenges Update ~ Part 1

I decided to break down my challenge updates each month in the same manner that I signed up for them. Tomorrow Part 2 of my challenge updates will be posted. We’re only just starting the new year, but I still wanted to go ahead and get in the habit of posting these updates in the middle of each month. Let’s see if I’ve made any progress yet.

2020 Retellings Reading Challenge

I love reading retellings and always wish I’d read more throughout the year, so this is motivation! And I love that the prompts are making me dig for books!! My goal is of course, Fairest of them All with 21-25+ retellings! I ain’t scared!!! Here’s the awesome bingo card to go with ~

2020 Release – A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer

2020 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge

Popsugar has 40 different prompts to read and an Advanced challenge with an extra 10 prompts. Of course I’m going for the whole enchilada! Click HERE if you’d like to check out all the prompts.
A book that’s published in 2020 – A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer
A bildungsroman – Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen
A book with an upside-down image on the cover – Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw
A book by an author with flora or fauna in their name – The Air He Breathes by Brittainy C. Cherry
A book published the month of your birthday – Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
A book with at least a four-star rating on Goodreads – The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

That’s the progress I’ve made on each of these challenges so far. Not bad for half a month’s time.

How are you doing with your challenges/goals for the year? Or, did you choose to stay away from challenges this year?

Happy Reading,

Ali

  3. I think you are doing great already. I always write reviews for the books I add to my challenges. This year I think I will include books read but not reviewed for some of them.

    • 2019 was my first year to pull it off after all my years of blogging, but I am now writing reviews for every book I read. I definitely think it’s cool to include the books you don’t review, though!!
