Hi everyone! Today I want to talk about how am I doing with my 2020 goals and with the Reading Challenges I’m participating in. This update only includes the books I read from April to June, if you want to see my progress update from January to March, here’s the post I wrote about it.
Without further ado, here are my updates:
Con Sabor Reading Challenge is hosted by Dani @ metamorphoreader, Astrid @ Book Love Book Reviews, Natalia @ Books.Build.Life, and Nox @ Nox the Reader. My goal for this challenge is to read 35 books by Latinx authors in 2020. I was supposed to be following the prompts for each month, but I didn’t end up doing that.
For this challenge, I read 6 books during the second trimester of the year. For a total of 16 books by Latinx authors read this year.
#StartOnYourShelfathon is hosted by CW at The Quiet Pond, it started on December 2019 and my goal for this challenge is to read 50 of the unread books on my shelf and I want to read 15 specific books that I included on my tbr.
I have read 12 books for this challenge in the second trimester of 2020. For a total of 27 books read in 2020 that were on my shelf before the start of the year. I only read two books that were on my tbr: The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende and China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kuang. For a total of 4 out of 15 books from my tbr. I really need to start reading more books that are on my tbr!
To Be Taught, If Fortunate | An Unexpected Guest | A Question of Holmes | Everything I Never Told You | Hate to Want You | Kingdom of Needles and Bone | China Rich Gilfriend | The Bone Witch| The House of the Spirits | The Poppy War | We Hunt the Flame | Want
In 2020, my goal was to read 20 fantasy books and I already completed that goal. I read 15 fantasy books in the second trimester of 2020. For a total of 24 fantasy books in 2020.
The Poppy War | Jade City | Incendiary | Tunnel of Bones | Ghost Squad | Blood of Elves | The Deep | The Bone Witch | Rolling in the Deep | We Hunt the Flame | Storm Front | Locke & Key #1 | Fool Moon | The Black God’s Drums | Grave Peril
KEEP READING DIVERSELY
Another one of my goals is to keep reading diversely, obviously the 35 Latinx books count towards that goal but beyond that, I wanted to read 15 books by Black authors and 15 books by Asian authors and I already accomplished those goals!
In the second trimester of 2020 I read 13 books by Black authors, for a total of 24 books by Black authors read in 2020.
Say Her Name | Untouchable| Don’t Call Us Dead | The Deep | The Black God’s Drums | The Boyfriend Project | Guarding Temptation | Meet Cute Club | Wanna Bet | Xeni | Clap When You Land | White Rage | White Whisky Bargain
And in terms of Asian authors, in the second trimester of 2020, I read 14 books by Asian authors for a total of 15 in 2020.
Gotham High | The Bone Witch | Girl Gone Viral | A Gentleman in the Street | China Rich Girlfriend | Everything I Never Told You | Hate to Want You | The Trouble with Hating You| Want | Yes, No, Maybe So | Jade City | The Poppy War | The Marriage Game | We Hunt the Flame
Overall, I’m on track to accomplish my 2020 goals and to complete the reading challenges. I only need to read more of the books I put on my tbr for #StartOnYourShelfathon, that’s the only goal I’m behind on.
