TGIF is a fun post created by Ginger at GReads. It’s to recap what you’ve posted about through the week and then Ginger asks a fun question.
Friday, Sept. 23rd - Reading Challenges: Did you sign up for any this year? How has your progression been?
I have signed up for the Post-Apocalyptic/ Dystopian Challenge reading challenge hosted by books ahoy. It's the first one that I've done and when I saw Melanie post it I HAD to join. Dystopian is my favorite type of book to read at the moment and I can't get enough. Sadly I've only read one since the challenge started (Amanda Hocking's Hollowland, The Hollows book one) because I had I read about five in the month or two before it began. I'm going to fix this problem in the next few months as The Hollows book two, Crossed (will read Matched before Crossed comes out), & Shatter Me are released in October and November. I'm anxious for the sequels to Across the Universe (A Million Suns), Divergent (Insurgent), Delirium (Pandemonium), Enclave (Outpost), Possession (Fugitive), Wither (Fever). I've also got The Uglies series and Blood Red Road in my possession to read as well.
I also set up my own 2011 Challenge on Goodreads of 50 books this year. Right now I have 42 out of 50 read and am 1/2 way through my 43 (I'm six books or 11% ahead of schedule). I did get behind a few months ago and was at the point where I had to read 5 or 6 books a month for the rest of the year, but now I'm on track. Next year I might end up lowering my goal. If all I had to do was read, that would be one thing. But working full time and having an almost four year old doesn't leave much reading time. Plus I split my "me" time with writing. But we'll see when the time comes.
