How have I done? Well, we are now in the 9th month of the year and I have read 2 out of 5 (if I am honest 2 out of 7, as ones's a trilogy) books for Kinna's challenge and 2 books for Helen's. I have done even worse on my personal challenge 3 out of 12. I keep a record of my reading challenges here.
I realise I have just confessed that I might actually be terrible at reading challenges (and I'm not sure how that makes me feel. Actually, I do! It makes me feel a little sad), so I am not going to give myself another challenge to finish my challenges, but I'm also determined to finish these challenges. There's more than enough time - 3 months to try and read about 16 novels (5 for Kinna's challenge, maybe 2 for Helen's challenge, and 9 for my personal challenge). Shouldn't be too difficult, especially as for Kinna's Challenge I chose books I wanted to read, and as for Helen's and my personal challenge I decided instead to not make a list but to choose books I felt like reading that were either North African or iconic.
Am I the only one who is terrible at reading challenges? Has anyone started and finished one? If you have what's the secret to your success? How do you finish reading challenges, because I would really love to know. Also with a few months before the year ends, how are your reading challenges going? I really hope better than mine.
Here's to the next 3 months, my reading challenges and I. Wish me luck!
