2024 Reading Challenges Update: June

Posted July 1, 2024 by Jen in Reading Challenge Tags: , ,

I am participating in four challenges this year. Here is my monthly (and year-long cumulative) update. Note: If you would like to see what books I’ve read for the challenges, please friend or follow me on Goodreads!

MID-YEAR UPDATE: I’ve not been reading as much as I have in previous years, and I don’t see things improving/increasing in the next few months. So I’m going to adjust my overall Goodreads goal from 110 to 90. I’m a little under halfway to that mark. I’m also going to adjust my audiobook goal from 65 to 55 books. I’ll need to get moving on those audiobooks to make that goal. That still keeps me in the Marathoner (Look Ma No Hands) 50+ goal for the challenge. I’ve been able to keep up with the TBR and Romance Reading Challenges, and I still plan to complete both.
