The End is Near- Status Update on 2019 Reading Challenges

So, I’m gonna be honest. I forgot about these reading challenges for awhile. I’m still interested in doing them, but I definitely let my interests sidetrack me on this. Honestly though, I’ve read a couple books for my reading challenge without knowing it and have some books on my TBR that work for some of these challenges as well. I’m not sure if I’ll fully complete either of these, but it was nice giving it a shot.

Year of The Asian Reading Challenge by CW from The Quiet Pond (thequietpond.com),Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams (sprinklesofdreams.wordpress.com), Shealea, and Vicky from Vicky Who Reads (vickywhoreads.wordpress.com). This is the challenge for you, if like me, one of your goals this year is to make sure you’re reading more diversely. The goal is to read as many books by asian authors as you can. Now, there are levels to the challenge so don’t stress out if you have a ton of other reading goals or anything like that. They also come with cute icon which you can see below. If you’d like to join please check here.

As you can see I may have been a bit too ambitious in this reading challenge. Not sure I’m going to make it, but I have hopes and plans to read more Asian authors.


Reading Women Challenge. This challenge was put together by ReadingWomen. It encourages people to read different books either about or by women. You can find it below. If you want more information check here.
