My main goal this year was the Popsugar Reading Challenge, for which I only had three prompts left.
∞ A book with a cat on the cover ∞
A book with a family-term in the title ∞
∞ A book that takes place over a character’s life span ∞
DNF’d the The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August so I need to pick another book for this prompt…
Another goal I set myself was trying to get my “Currently reading” on Goodreads to 1.
I honestly have to admit that I’ve simply put Dracula and Interview with the Vampire back on my owned-TBR. I simply couldn’t find the motivation and it’s hardly the point of forcing myself to read…
As for The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, I finally decided to go with a DNF. I started this months ago and remember having a hard time already because of the scientific discussions on time travelling, the long sentences and… I just wasn’t interested in it all that much. Which means I need to find a new book to cross off my last Popsugar Reading Challenge book as well, haha.
So my currently reading-shelf looks like this right now:
I wanted to decrease my physical TBR-pile down to 100 books, but.. Nope.
Currently I’m at 125 and they just keep on coming..
As for my eARC’s… I’ve tried!
For some reason I also requested more *eARC’s. NetGalley really is temptation for every book blogger out there, isn’t it?
Christmas at the Candied Apple Café – Katherine Garbera
Busted – Gina Ciocca
Shoot the Moon – Kate Watson
This Heart of Mine – C.C. Hunter
*The Cruel Prince – Holly Black
A Winter’s Wish Come True – Lynsey James*Paris Adrift – E.J. Swift
Songlines – Carolyn Denman
Sweet Dreams Baby – C.J. Carmichael
A Match Made By Chloe – T.B. Pearl
If Only For a Time – January Fields
Swan Song – Charlotte Wilson
Poets, Artists, Lovers: A Novel – Mira Tudor
Almost Invincible – Kristen Brand
The Fragile Thread of Hope – Pankaj Giri
James: Witch-Hunter – Kelly Marsden
It appears I went from 13 eARC’s / author requests to… 8!
I’d say that’s decent and… half an accomplishment?
MISSION: HALF AN ACCOMPLISHMENT
What do you think?
Would you have focused on eARC’s more than I did?
And for the people who joined: how did you do?!
