  • BEST FICTION: I read a lot of really good fiction in May, but I think the winner is In an Absent Dream.

  • BEST ADULT: I didn’t expect to enjoy this as much as I did, but A Very Stable Genius was great.
  • BEST YA: I couldn’t possibly choose between volumes two and three of Heartstopper, so my choice is both.

April’s theme wasΒ currents or classics, and I decided to go with “currents,” or books published between April 2019 and now. I ended up reading a ton of books that fit this prompt!

I finished a total of 23 books in April, for a total of 67 so far in 2020!

What’s in a Name is hosted by Andrea @ Carolina Book Nook.

In April, I crossed off the remaining two prompts, so I’m officially done with this challenge!

I set a goal of listening to 50 audiobooks in 2020, and I listened to 13 in April. I’m now at 45 total for the year!

  • BEST ADULT: Definitely Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow. I’d give it six stars if I could.
  • BEST YA: Definitely Heartstopper. I need the second volume immediately.

Monthly Motif is a reading challenge hosted by girlxoxo.

February’s theme was seeing red, or, more specifically, “a book with the word ‘red’ in the title or a book with a red-ish cover.” I didn’t expect to struggle with this one, but nothing I really wanted to read in February had a red cover! Eventually, I found How Music Got Free, which worked.

I finished a total of 14 books in February, for a total of 30 so far in 2020!

What’s in a Name is hosted by Andrea @ Carolina Book Nook.

I didn’t cross off any new prompts in February, but I did get another book for “a given/first name.”

The Audiobook Challenge is hosted by Hot Listens & Caffeinated Reviewer.

I set a goal of listening to 50 audiobooks in 2020, and I listened to 11 in February. At 25 total so far this year, I’m already halfway to my goal!
