Time to Take a Look at Some Challenges Mid-Year

We are already nearing the midway point of 2020, and what a year it has been so far. Since I do have a fair amount of challenges and goals going I decided to do a midway point update for most of them. It will be good to see where I am on track and where I am not on track.

I last checked for this blog post on June 13th so I could plan it in.

Goal Level: 3 (11-15 books)
Current Level: Level 1 (1-5) books
Books Read: Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Imaginarium | Equal Rites |  The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents | Guards! Guards! | Going Postal

I quite need to work on this one. I mean with a book every month I could still hit 11 books and so level 3 but I was more gunning for 15 haha. I kind of got stuck on the Witches arc Equal Rites was a reread but I had a hard time picking up the rest of the books in that arc so far.

go big or go home 2020

Goal: 12 Books
Current Status: 4 Books
Read: Bone Silence | The Rise and the Fall of D.O.D.O. | The Electric Heir | Shorefall

I have been avoiding the bigger books again despite this being my own reading challenges. I am quite bad.

    1. I still haven’t progressed further into Wyrd Sisters. Lesigh. But the first full week of July Merijn is at my parents and I think I’m going to sit down with the Witches arc then for a bit.
