My original goals

So far I’ve completed 14 challenges. I originally set myself a goal to complete at least 75% of the challenges I’d signed up for.  I signed up for 21 challenges, but the Book Blogger Recommendation challenge sort of disappeared so I’m discounting that one.

I need to complete at least 15 challenges to reach my goal of 75%, one more than I’ve completed so far.  Of the challenges I have left, the Why Buy the Cow is most likely to get completed I think, especially with pulseit’s 31 days of reading.  There are some titles on there I’d really love to read, so it’ll just come down to whether I can squeeze them in!

The A-Z is unlikely to get completed, just because I’ve not found it really enjoyed tracking it, and I haven’t even attempted to search for those awkward letters!  Mount TBR is pretty much doomed because I have so many great library books at the minute, and I think the Chunkster won’t get completed because I seem to have so many YA titles lined up next!  Literary Exploration and the Seriously Series (re-reads) could go either way, so I’ll have to just see how my reading plays out over the next month.

Goals for December
– Read 4 free books to complete the Why Buy The Cow Challenge
– Read one thriller & one graphic novel to complete the Literary Exploration Challenge
– Possibly re-read a book to complete the Seriously Series (re-reads) challenge
