Mid Year (sort of) Reading Update

Hi guys, we just passed the half way point of the year and I thought I should update you guys on my reading progress/challenges.

Right now I just finished: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Currently Reading: My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows and Brodi Ashton. I’m also just about done with the Throne of Glass audiobook so that review will be up soon.

Reading Next: Rebel of the Sands

Anyway, I set my goodreads reading goal to 50 at the beginning of the year thinking I would at least read one book per week. I was pretty shocked to find out I only have one more book to read and I’ll have completed this goal! Thats fifty books done in less than 7 months, I’m pretty impressed with my self.


On my popsugar reading challenge these are the ones I’m yet to cross off:

A book you haven’t read since high school
A romance set in the future
A book set in Europe.
A self improvement book
A book written by a celebrity
A book at least a 100 years older than you
A science fiction novel
A book recommended by a family member
A book with a protagonist who has your occupation
A murder mystery
A book of poetry
A book about a road trip
A book about a culture you’re unfamiliar with
A book that takes place on an island

For my Around the Year in 52 books challenge, well I’m terribly behind on that one.

Aside from reading challenges and goals, I thought I would share my top 5 favorite books of the year (so far)

  1. Red Rising by Pierce Brown
  2. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
  3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  4. A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab
  5. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

I guess that’s it! I’m still settling down from the big move my family and I recently made so it’s still a little hard to blog regularly. I’ll be back soon though.

    1. Blood of Olympus was great but it’s a little sad that the series is over, I know we have Trials of Apollo but it just won’t be the same…. My Lady Jane is hilarious! I wasn’t expecting it to be so funny, the shape shifting just brought it home, the book would have been so boring without it!

      1. I totally agree with you on MLJ! It was the first time in a while that I had to actually put down the book because I was laughing so hard! The whole conversation when Jane kept using the horse puns was hilarious – easily one of my favorite scenes in that book.
