Time for another monthly check in on my reading challenge progress.
My blog’s been slow over this month, so I was really glad to get my computer back this morning so I could at least make a start on new content, starting with this update.
Luckily, although my blog doesn’t reflect it at the moment, my reading hasn’t been that slow, and I have news… (each challenge title is linked to my challenge sign up post, in case anything catches your eye and you fancy joining in)…
I had previously read 4 books towards my total goal. This month I added another 4 books (March has been my month of Fantasy, it would seem!), making a new total of 8. The books I read were:
My previous total was 6 books; this month I read another 4 library books, taking my new total to 10.
I’m a big fan of libraries, but I don’t think until I started keeping this record I realised just how much I rely on them to feed my brilliant book addiction. I read:
Possibly related to my love for library books is the fact that at present this challenge is the one that’s suffering. My previous total was 2 books, and I’ve only added one more this month, making a total of 3. When I clear my library book pile a little I really will make a decent effort with my own TBR pile.

Previous total was 5 books, and this month I’ve added 1 more, making 6 altogether. This is probably one of the hardest challenges I’ve undertaken so far, but it’s great fun, reading through the key words and trying to find titles that fit, or enjoying a wonderful book then scanning through the list and just hoping that there will be something you can match up to. I must admit I’m clutching at straws a little with this months addition, but surely if you’re Half a King then you’re a Prince, right?!
Half a King by Joe Abercrombie – (April: Prince)
I’ve currently completed 10 books out of the 40 that I aim to read this year.
So, that’s my monthly Reading Challenge progress. You can find the (very) condensed version of all this information by checking out the Reading Challenges menu at the top of my blog, where each challenge and any progress updates are listed. I also hope to be back to a more regular blogging routine next month, so here’s to another month of good books and (hopefully) regular updates!!
