Reading Challenge Update

This will be the third (and final) time that I talk about March, and then I’m going to forget about it. Unsurprisingly, because I only read about a third of what I usually do, my reading challenge update for March is not that great.

Monthly Motif is a reading challenge hosted by girlxoxo.

March’s theme was royalty, kingdoms, empires, governments and I read one book for this prompt:

April’s theme is crack the case and I’m thinking I’ll either read a Tana French book or one of my Book of the Month mysteries. Let me know what you think I should choose!

I read a total of 6 books in March. I’m still 14 books ahead in my reading challenge, mostly because I did so well in February.

Popsugar hosts a reading challenge every year. You can find out more information on their website.

Two of the books I read in March counted toward the Popsugar Reading Challenge. The prompts I checked off in March include:

Romanceopoly is a reading challenge hosted by Under the Covers and Peace Love Books.

I’m really not doing very well with romanceopoly, though it was the reading challenge that I checked off the most prompts for in March.

The prompts I checked off were:

Modern Mrs. Darcy hosts a reading challenge every year. You can find more information on the website.

I checked off exactly zero prompts for this reading challenge in March! On the bright side, I’m only four prompts away from finishing, so I’m not too concerned.

Please feel free to recommend me a book in translation and a book published before 1990!

As usual, I waited until 9:30pm on the last day of the month to finish three books that I’ve owned for more than three months, but hey, I did it. They were:


How are you doing on your reading challenges? Do you have any recommendations for me? Let’s talk in the comments!

    I take part in a couple challenge for a book club on GoodReads, but I bypassed PopSugar and the Around the Year challenge this year. They are really good at getting me to branch out, but it was just too stressful along with all the buddy reads and group reads!

    For books in translation, you could always go with a classic. The Iliad, The Odyssey, The Aeneid, or as I recently read, Beowulf! If you like Science Fiction, the first book in Cixin Liu’s The Three Body Problem was fairly enjoyable.

    I thought I was doing well at 6 books ahead, just as long as I managed to read more than the 80 books I’ve pledged on goodreads I’ll be happy.
