2016 Reading Goals: January Check In

Quick check in on my reading status for January. I’m officially tracking my reading goals with three different challenges, and you can see my current progress on my Reading Progress page. (Hint: I’m tracking ahead on all fronts! Yay me!)

A friend of mine has a book blog called Chapter Break, and they are doing a fun Bookish Bingo challenge. I decided to see how I compared to their bingo card for this month, and was surprised at how many squares I completed – 15 total squares marked off!

I was able to complete these squares while reading the following books:

(I’m still in the middle of Cinder, but counted it any way. :) )

I’ve really been enjoying the books I’ve read and listened to this month! I consider myself officially over my book slump and looking forward to a great year of reading!

What books did you read this month that you really enjoyed?

2016 Reading Goals

One of my goals for 2016 is to read more. Last year, I read/listened to 44 books. Not too shabby, but I fell short of my goal of 52 books. This year, I’m using three reading challenges to guide me:

2015 Audiobook Challenge: Year End Wrap Up

There are still a couple days left in the year, but I’m not going to finish my current audiobook before then; so it’s time to report on my audiobook challenge.

This year, I set a goal to read 52 books, and as part of that I’ve separately signed up for an Audiobook Challenge, which is being hosted by The Book Nympho and Hot Listens. I set a goal for 15-20 of my books this year to be audiobooks, which they call the “Socially Awkward (Don’t Talk to Me)” Level.

Well…I ended up listening to 22 audioboks!! You can see everything I listened to this year on my Goodreads shelf. You’ll see that a majority of those was the Sookie Stackhouse series, narrated by Johanna Parker. Boy, did I love listening to her bring sassy Sookie to life!

I love that I’ve finally found a way to love audiobooks. Doing this challenge really helped me to seek out narrators I would like and actually listen to. I look forward to continuing my audiobook challenge in 2016 (see my reading challenge post here)!
