Reading Challenge Update: March

Can you believe that we've already gone through three months in 2016? I can't believe that we're into April right now. The year is flying by so quickly!

Many of you know that I'm participating in a few different reading challenges this year. To keep myself on track (and to let you know what I've been reading), I came up with these Reading Challenge Update posts. Yes, I know they aren't very original, but because of them, I've been keeping track of the books I've been reading for the many reading challenges I signed up for at the end of 2015.

Alright... so let's see how I faired for all of my challenges in March!

Note: Some of these challenges allow readers to cross-read, which means you can read the same books for multiple challenges, and they count for all of them. Throughout these monthly updates, including today's update, you may notice this trend.

As far as reading goes, I don't think I did a great job this month. I only read seven books! But one was almost 500 pages, and I worked pretty much every day this month, including spring break so I think seven books is a decent amount. Oh, and I hit 50% on my Goodreads Reading Challenge! That's something to be excited about!

Debut Author Challenge

The Debut Author Challenge is hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. The goal of the challenge is to read as many Middle Grade, Young Adult, and New Adult debuts that you can during the calendar year.

Flights of Fantasy

Flights of Fantasy is hosted by Alexa of Alexa Loves Books and Rachel of Hello, Chelly. The goal of Flights of Fantasy is to read as many fantasy novels that you can, and it's a no-pressure challenge!

Books Read


I'm kind of surprised that my most read genre was fantasy this month. Now I realize that a few of these (well most of them) are retellings or revisitings, but I consider all of them fantasy.

Personal Reread Challenge

Books Read

I've been trying to reread some books, and although most of them are turning out to be children's books when I'm babysitting, it's been fun to rediscover some oldies.

I also decided that it was time for me to reread Dorothy Must Die, especially because I wanted to read The Wicked Will Rise, and Yellow Brick War. I found out that I forgot a lot of details, so it was worth rereading the massive book.

Non-Challenge Books

Because I read a lot, there are also some books that I read that don't count for any of the challenges I've signed up for.
