Reading Challenge Update – May 2019

Hey, all! I’m back with the roundup of my reading challenge updates for May. Admittedly, this month was much less of a success than previous months have been. I blame my birthday, a work conference, and the fact that this month felt so short to me—it’s no wonder I lost track of time.

So what did I read (or attempt to) this month?

The Great

Challenges met:

Once I actually got time to sit down and read my ARC, Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim flew by so fast; it was so easy and enjoyable to read, minus a few hangups. Maia strives to be the greatest tailor in the land, despite the fact that she’s a girl, and though this talent she has is less a hobby than a sense of being and livelihood, I think it still fits the category because of how focused the story is on clothes-making.

2019 Reading Goals – #KillYourTBR + Reading Challenges

Hey, there, folks! How’s it going? I’m not really one for New Year’s Resolutions, but I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do with my blog this year. After starting the ABC Book Challenge, I realized how out of control my TBR list is. It’s a sad fact I’ve “known” for a while—I joke about it with friends all the time—but I didn’t truly face how bad it’s really gotten.

So I want to make it a point this year to establish my 2019 reading goals, namely to focus much more on my TBR list, especially books I’ve owned, mmmm… for over five years now without reading, rather than jumping to the lasted releases. I’ll still read current stuff, but I hope my reading will be more balanced moving forward. I also want to back off on doing in-depth reviews and focusing more on what I’ve accomplished each month.

Here’s how I’m going to do it:
