Eighteen weeks ago I shared what I had read, was reading, and what I was wanting to read. Since then, many books have come and gone. Going to update you on my Goodreads Reading Challenge.
If you are a lover of books, or just want to motivate yourself back into the reading habit, check out Goodreads.com and their Reading Challenges. It’s easy to set up and you pick your challenge.

Reading Challenge Update
Books Read (since April 22, 2017)
My favorites are those in bold typeface. The only two duds out of the bunch were Fly Me and Crimes Against a Book Club. While the latter lacked in-depth and was quite predictable, I didn’t despise or regret reading it. However, Fly Me was a different story. I don’t think I have ever been so disappointed in a book. Ugh. I wanted to work on a Book Review covering it, but it made me so unhappy, I trashed the draft of my review!
Nonetheless, the other 15 books were great. As you can see I have favorite authors, but lately I have done a better job of branching away from those to try new reads.

I’m now 30 books into my goal of 40. I feel really good about this, but I’m still hungry to read more. I find myself hoping for a rainy day or a little extra time in the evening to catch a few more pages. As always audio books are almost always on during my car rides.
Are you a reader? Have you tried audio books or an e-reader? Comment below with your favorite books! I’ll be reading them searching for more to add to my list!
As always looking forward to hearing from y’all!
