TGIF: Reading Challenges
September 23, 2011
This week, Ginger at GReadsBooks has asked:
Reading Challenges: Did you sign up for any this year? How has your progression been?
I actually started this blog back in February and had ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE about the (freaking fantastic, supportive, amazing) YA book blogging community. So I started clicking around and reading blogs and I would see these reading challenges, but because it was already February I thought it was probably too late to join any of them. (I’m sort of a rule follower. So. That.)
But, I got on Goodreads and had set a reading goal of one hundred books for this year and I believe I’m “doing” the YA Historical Fiction Challenge hosted by YABliss—meaning, I have the button on my blog. 😉
As far as my progress, I’m doing ok with the Goodreads one. I’ve read seventy books thus far this year, which puts me a book or two behind, but that’s easily caught up on.
And then the YA Historical Fiction challenge is a little trickier simply because there really isn’t a ton of YA novels that are straight up historical fiction. But in that category I think I set a personal goal of ten historical fiction books, and I’ve probably read . . . four? And that’s only if you have a REALLY LOOSE DEFINITION of “historical fiction.” So, far the rest of this year, obviously I need to focus on the historical fiction side of things. . . . if you have any SUGGESTIONS of great books in that category, leave ’em in comments! *smiles sweetly*
