Reading Challenge Update - May

June! How the heck did we end up in June already?
After my crappy reading slump of April, I'm pleased to say that May was much better with a total of 11 books read!
Fingers crossed my reading mojo continues to flow.


This year, I signed up for  4 reading challenges (not including the Goodreads Challenge) and 1 blogging challenge.

Details of them can be found in my 2019 Reading Challenge sign up post.

This month I have made progress as follows...

The Goal was to 10-12 books this year featuring royalty.

I read 0 'Royal' themed books last month, so my total stays at 2.

My blog challenge... Each month a prompt is given and the goal is to write a blog post that fits it. 
I haven't written a single prompt.
Fail, fail, faily fail. Fail. 

My aim for this one was to read 10-15 books featuring bad boys... 
In May, I read 0 keeping the total at 1.

This reading challenge is aimed at reading books published before 2019 and getting them off your backlist/TBR/wishlist...

For May I read 7 books from the backlist.

May's 7 brings my total this year to 24 backlist books.

I was originally aiming for 5 audiobooks this year. Because I was beastin' it, I raised the total to 'Weekend Warrior' which is 5-10 books.

My total from May is now at 5.
I think this lovely audio challenge is in the bag... Ooooh, I wonder if I can raise my target again?

May's Audiobook was The House of Hades by Rick Riordan.


How are your challenges going this year?



  1. Sounds like you're doing great on the later challenges, even if you're not quite making those earlier ones. :-)

    1. I'll catch up... I'll keep saying it until it happens or the year runs out! lol

  2. I'm wondering why this year is going so fast too! I'm getting worried about a few of my challenges as I'm behind on a few of them! Good luck!

    1. Thank you! I keep telling myself there's plenty of time to catch up but at this rate I think I'll be running out of time!
