July ’17 Reading Challenges Recap

Once again I am posting an update of my reading challenges apart from my wrap-up post. This past month I made a lot of headway in a couple of the challenges I am taking part in and am feeling extra confident when it comes to completing them.

1. The 2017 Debut Author Challenge is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. I added two more debut books (Ashley Poston’s Geekerella & Sarah Tolcser’s Song of the Current) to my current count regarding this challenge. Let’s be real, this challenge’s goal is basically in the bag.

  • Challenge Goal: 12 books; Current Count: 11 books

2. Flights of Fantasy Reading Challenge 2017 is hosted by Alexa Loves Books and Hello, Cherry. Hey now, I actually read a few books this past month toward this challenge which makes me feel loads better about reaching my goal. In July I read the following fantasy novels: Zen Cho’s Sorcerer to the Crown, Kendare Blake’s Three Dark Crowns, and Sarah Tolcser’s Song of the Current.

  • Challenge Goal: 20 books; Current Count: 12 books

3. Summer 2017 Bookish Bingo is hosted by Pretty Deadly Reviews and runs June through August. The goal of this challenge is to get as many BINGOs as you can using the Bingo card below. I did better than expected with regard to reading books for this challenge. My Bingo card is looking so much better compared to last month and hey, I got a couple of bingos this month! I’m aiming for three more bingos by the end of August.
