2017 Reading Challenges

As it’s nearing the end of the year, I thought now would be a good time to check on the progress of my reading challenges and see what books I still need to read. I took part in 3 reading challenges this year but I think I’ll reduce it to maybe 1 for 2018 as I don’t like feeling that I have to read a particular book – it ends up becoming a chore.

I still have two books to read to complete this challenge but I have them chosen – Betty Boo by Claudia Pineiro and Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly.

Again, I have two books to read to finish this challenge. For ‘starts with a Z’, I’m going with The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman or Zorro by Isabel Allende. I’ll probably end up reading a short recipe book for the non-fiction: food/drink prompt!

I have 3 books left to read but I’ve chosen them and have them sitting on my TBR pile. For I, U and X, I’ve chosen Eowyn Ivey’s To the Bright Edge of the World, Jane Urquhart’s Sanctuary Line, and Xinran’s Sky Burial

So I have 7 books to read to complete all 3 challenges. I’m definitely refraining from challenges next year as I want to read what appeals to me at the time. Are there any challenges you take part in and would you recommend them?
