Hot Reads – Part 3 / What I am Reading

Hot Reads Part 3 / What I am Reading -

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 and their Reading Challenges. It’s easy to set up and you pick your challenge.

In 2015, I set my goal at 30 books; 2016 at 35 books; and 2017’s goal is 40 books.

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.

Books to Read

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!

Hot Reads Part 3 / What I am Reading -


  1. I love Goodreads! It’s the best since I can add books that I want to read to my list wherever I am. My goal for this year is 50 books and I have a good feeling about it. Some of the best books I’ve read lately are “Big Little Lies” by Laine Moriarty and “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” by John Boyne. Yesterday I finished “Secret Daughter”by Shilpi Somaya Gowda and liked it a lot as well. Thanks for sharing the books you’ve read! I’m adding a bunch to my Goodreads list now :)

  2. I love Michael Connelly! I also have The Perfume Collector on my wish list, but have not read it yet. I just finished The Handmaid’s Tale and it was really thought provoking! If you have not read it, check it out!
