#RockMyTBR 2017 April Recap

rockmytbr17header

#RockMyTBR (link) is a reading challenge hosted by Sarah K., The YA Book Traveler. Basically, the challenge is to read books that you already own that were published before the beginning of the year. I love this challenge. Even though I didn’t complete it last year, it was still fun to participate in and see what others were reading. Here’s my intro post for this year.

So how did I do in the month of April?

Altogether I read four books in April, and NONE of them were for #RockMyTBR.

Really, I thought I read more than that :-\

And really, I need to get hoppin’!

Are you participating in this or any other reading challenges? How are you doing?

Review – Second Position by Katherine Locke

I won an ebook copy of Second Position in the beginning of 2016. I can’t believe it took me so long to get to it. But I’m glad I finally did.

Second Position is part of my 2017 #RockMyTBR challenge.

So how did I do in the month of January?

Well, I started out with a BANG! let me tell you…but none of the four books I read in January were for this challenge. I got caught up in trying to read books for YAKFest (and then I was too sick to read), so looks like I’ll just have to try harder!

#RockMyTBR 2016 Wrap-up

ROCK-1

This year I participated in the #RockMyTBR reading challenge. I also plan on participating in 2017. Here’s a wrap-up of my challenge.

Basically, I chose 12 books already on my kindle that I thought I’d enjoy reading. That’s only one a month…

My Introduction and Reading List

But then I only read 4 of the 12 on my challenge. Oops!

Books read (4/12)

The Long Way Home by Regina West

The Liberation of Alice Love by Abby McDonald

Stupid Girl by Cindy Miles

Relentless by Karen Lynch

I hope next year’s challenge will be better. I actually have 15 books on the 2017 challenge, but I made sure to find books that were really, REALLY on my list. Hopefully I’ll do better this time around.

Did you participate in any 2016 reading challenges? How did you do? Are you doing any in 2017?
