How did I do this month in terms of my reading challenges? Well, I could hardly do worse than last month when I only managed to pick up a single book toward my goals. This month I made it a goal of mine to get to at least one book for each of the challenges I’m participating in. And I did! I finally feel like I’m off to a good start with these challenges and I’m hoping I’ll be able to carry the momentum into March.
2016 Debut Author Challenge:
2016 Goal: 12 books
Debut Books Read in February: 2
Overall Progress: 2
The 2016 Debut Author Challenge is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. I finally had an opportunity to pick up a couple of 2016 debut novels. I read Sarah Ahier’s Assassin’s Heart and Heidi Heilig’s The Girl from Everywhere. I wasn’t super impressed by the former, but I really enjoyed the latter. Covers below are linked to my reviews.
Debut Books Read This Month:
2016 Finishing the Series Challenge:
2016 Goal: 7 series
Series Read in February: 1
Overall Progress: 2
The 2016 Finishing the Series Challenge is hosted by Bea’s Book Nook. I have been holding on to Jenny Han’s P.S. I Still Love You for almost a year. I really loved To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and expected to love this one just as much, but it ended up being kind of a letdown. Cover is linked to my review.
Books Read/Series Finished:
2016 Read My Books Challenge:
2016 Goal: 30 books
Number of My Books Read in February: 5
Overall Progress: 6
The 2016 Read My Books Challenge is hosted by The Worn Bookmark. Thanks to the many books I ended up purchasing this year, I picked up quite a few of my own books this month. Here are the books I read this month from my own shelves: Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers, Silver Eve by Sandra Waugh, P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han, The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig, and A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab.
