Reading Challenge 2022

Let’s check in on how far I’ve come!

This year my goal was to finish reading 30 books. Last year I reached my goal but I also included books that I didn’t finish. This year I won’t be doing that.

So far this year, I have finished 5 books:

  1. When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn
  2. The Tatooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
  3. The Autistic Brain by Temple Grandin (she actually has a quiz at the back to do a VERY rudiemtary baseline check on if you have autistic tendencies or not. I scored 15/50 and you need 32 or higher to possibly be on the spectrum)
  4. It’s In His Kiss by Julia Quinn
  5. If The Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy

Books I did not finish which don’t count towards the total:

  1. Bring Back Our Girls
  2. The Brothers of Auschwitz (I started reading this book, kept a bookmark in it and went back to it again and read about anohter 150 pages but I just can’t read it anymore.)
  3. But You Don’t Look Autistic At All
  4. Spymistress

Money Saved: $209

A new thing I am doing this year is how calculating how much money I have saved by not actually buying the books since I get the books from the library. This total will be for the finished and unfinished books, because if I had bought all the books, I would have spent the money if I had finished them or not. So as soon as they enter my house, they will be included in the amount.

I have returned all my library books and will focus on some of the chapter books that I have in my collection of student appropriate books. Some of them I have purchased, but some of them were included in free gifts with purchases. Since I have been spending a lot of time with my boyfriend lately, I haven’t had the same resolve to be reading so I don’t want to do library books too much right now. I always have to renew them and sometimes I can’t, so expect to see a LOT of youth fiction titles in the next update.

  1. Nearly time for the TV show to drop the second season. Still haven’t read any of the books, although I notice you’ve made it through 2. I just have such limited reading time at the moment. But I’ll get there (and I am guessing you know exactly what I’m talking about… 😉 )
