Challenge: Clear Your TBR Pile Challenge Update

To learn more about the challenge and/or to sign up, please check out THIS post. :)

So, halfway through this challenge, I'm reminded of the exact reason I've never done such a challenge before (I don't consider the "Real" Book Challenge to be like this challenge, since that one I just work through as I read). I'm a quick reader but not nearly as quick as other bloggers. And I have SO much going on that I can't just spend a bunch of time reading, even for the sake of a reading challenge. But I'm having a good time and still reading, so I guess that's a good thing regardless!

Anyway, my goal was to read 5 books: Ten, Grave Mercy, Keeping the Moon, Looking for Alaska, and Thin Space. 

Of those books, I've only finished Looking for Alaska, and I've started Ten. Umm...yeah. I also finished Friends with Boys, a graphic novel. See, I have a habit of starting a book, then starting another book, then maybe another...And then it takes me a loooong time before I go back to finishing the first one (not a good idea, since my memory isn't too great).

So I'm currently reading Ten, Between, Feuds, A Visit from the Goon Squad (summer reading), and Life in Motion. But I'm not really that far into my TBR challenge, nor am I sticking to my list (which is fine because the other books are on my TBR list too, but).

For those of you participating in the challenge (which I hope you are, but it's okay if you're not), I hope you're doing better than I am! Hopefully I'll do some catching up between now and the end of the challenge.
(If you'd still like to participate, you're welcome to sign up at any time.)

  1. I'm not really doing too well at the moment (still on my first book). However the book is a long one and I've almost finished it (plus I started out a little late). Hoping to go a little faster for the rest of the challenge.

    Here's my post:

    1. Awesome! It's not bad at all; at least it's something, right? Best of luck!


Thanks for visiting and reading! I appreciate all comments, and I always comment back if I can. :)
