Since it‘s almost the last quarter of the year, I figured I should update my challenges on here:
#mmdchallenge - 12/12 ✅
#Booked2019 17/24 (I‘ve been sticking to the schedule so all but one I won‘t start til October).
I was wondering if we think Next Year In Havana counts for Historical Romance by AOC for #readharder, because if so, That one is done too!
I calculated how many books I need to read to complete all my challenges. I didn‘t plan out the #ReadingUSA2019 correctly and I still have 23!
Plus all the books for #readingwomenchallenge, #booked2019, #readharderchallenge and #probooknerdschallenge
If I tried to finish all challenges, I‘d have to read 10 books a month only challenge books. Which would put a damper on the rest of my year! So now I decide which challenge to bail on.
I finished my first Manga book today. It was a little confusing at first because I wasn‘t sure what the correct order was to read the panels. I‘m sure I mixed it up but the story still made sense. 😂
This was a pretty interesting premise. Emma is an orphan who lives in an orphanage with a lot of kids. They learn and have fun. Emma learns a crazy secret and has to figure out what‘s going on!
#ReadHarderChallenge - Manga
Unpopular opinion ahead! This book really didn‘t work for me. This is likely coming from my own privilege but I don‘t want my 10 year old reading a book where a tween gets a gun and plots to kill someone who attacked them. The main story was okay, if a bit unbelievable, but there were so many peripheral stories and characters, I couldn‘t keep track of it all. #booked2019 and #readharderchallenge diverse middle grade/diversity award winner.
I was listening to this and could not make myself finish. Im not sure if its the multiple characters with same name, the incest or what but i absolutely hate it.
Book 5 of 14 for #bookfitnesschallenger2 @wanderinglynn #fitwizards @Clwojick @Lova @Peddler410 @Mynameisacolour @RainyDayReading @thereadingunicorn @jen_the_scribe
Task 7 for #readharderchallenge an #ownvoices book set in mexico or central america
This was not what I was expecting from a biography. There wasn't a lot of bragging or hiding the bad. Just telling his and his brothers' story.
Book 4 of 14 for #bookfitnesschallenger2 @wanderinglynn #fitwizards @Clwojick @lova @Peddler410 @Mynameisacolour @RainyDayReading @thereadingunicorn @jen_the_scribe
Task 9 of #readharderchallenge book published prior to January 1,2019 with fewer than 100 reviews on goodreads.
I‘m giving this book a pick, because I think for the right audience, it is probably incredible. For me, who struggles with fantasy, I was mostly confused for the whole book, but it did sort of come together in the end. And it works for #readharderchallenge #ownvoicesoceania which is a really tough prompt.. so 🎉
This book was very intense, violent, and eye opening. I didn‘t really know anything Australian/Aboriginal history.
There is a lot of fighting, abuse and killing. But I feel like this is a must read.
The book lagged a bit in the middle. But it picked back up and I didn‘t want to put it down.
