House Cup Reading Challenge UPDATE
If you missed it, I decided to take part in a truly epic reading challenge that is running from October 15 – November 12. You can read more about it, and see my TBR for the challenge HERE.
So instead of my usual Monday reading update, I thought I would post an update on how I am doing with the challenge instead! I knew when I took this on that I wouldn’t be able to complete all 20 reads in the allocated time. Unfortunately I just don’t get enough reading time for that many books in one month, however with just a week left to go I think I have done pretty damn well!
Over the space of the challenge so far I have read a total of 10 books. 10 books in three weeks! For someone that usually reads 3-5 a month (5 being an amazing month), I am pretty impressed with myself. And with one week left I think I will be able to tick a few more off the list!
Books read so far…
First Year: The View from Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg
Second Year: Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between by Jennifer E. Smith
Third Year: Drowned by Nichola Rielly
Fourth Year: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
Fifth Year: Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Sixth Year: Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater
Seventh Year: Teardrop by Lauren Kate
Hufflepuff: Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines
Occlumency: Waterfall by Lauren Kate
Death Eater: Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz
So 10 books in and 10 to go. As I said, I don’t think I’m going to be able to polish off the last 10 in just 1 week, but I will definitely be able to finish a few. Doing this challenge has really pushed me into making sure to find more time to read. Not only have I read more books than usual, it helped me complete my Goodreads goal for the year (more on that later!).
I am about to pick up Four by Veronica Roth, as it has literally sat on my TBR shelf for years so I figured this was a good time to finally read it and cross it off the never ending list! Hopefully I’ll be able to knock a few more off that list very soon too.
