2020 reading challenges update :)

Hello, friends! Today I’m going to be taking stock of my progress for the 2020 reading challenges I signed up for. I am currently signed up for 3, excluding the Goodreads challenge: the Out of Your Comfort Zone Challenge, Here & Queerathon, and ARC Apocalypse.

Here’s my progress so far for each:

here & queerathon

My initial goal was to read 12 books, which I guess is a bit laughably low considering how much I love to read queer books, but in 2019 I really slacked in that area, so at the time it felt like a decent number. I have surpassed that and read 15, which is about half of what I’ve read so far this year in total, and I’m sure I’m going to keep reading a lot more.

P. S. this is my own readathon that I’m hosting all year, and you can find all the necessary forms and info about signing up in the tab on the menu.

  1. Red, White, & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston
  2. We Set the Dark on Fire – Tehlor Kay Mejia
  3. The Devouring Gray – Christine Lynn Herman
  4. When We Were Magic – Sarah Gailey
  5. Felix Ever After – Kacen Callender
  6. I’ll Be the One – Lyla Lee
  7. Aphrodite Made Me Do It – Trista Mateer
  8. Be Dazzled – Ryan La Sala
  9. The Fell of Dark – Caleb Roehrig
  10. Check, Please! – Ngozi Ukazu
  11. Cinderella is Dead – Kalynn Bayronn
  12. Heartstopper – Alice Oseman
  13. Heartstopper Vol. 2 – Alice Oseman
  14. Heartstopper Vol. 3 – Alice Oseman
  15. Check, Please! Vol. 2: Sticks & Scones – Ngozi Ukazu

out of your comfort zone reading challenge

I also signed up for Caro’s Out of Your Comfort Zone Reading Challenge, which you can find more info about here. For the past couple years I have been trying to branch out more and read different things other than just YA, and have had pretty good luck doing that. I’ve discovered a lot of books and authors who I like and will definitely read more books from, so I’d count this challenge a success. My goal was to read 5 books and I’ve read 9 so far.

  1. Red, White & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston (adult romance)
  2. Lock Every Door – Riley Sager (adult thriller)
  3. Ana Maria Reyes Does Not Live in a Castle – Hilda Eunice Burgos (MG)
  4. Very Nice – Marcy Dermansky (adult literary fic)
  5. You Deserve Each Other – Sarah Hogle (adult romance)
  6. This Was Our Pact – Ryan Andrews (graphic novel)
  7. A Dash of Trouble – Anna Meriano (MG)
  8. Whichwood – Tahereh Mafi (MG)
  9. Home Before Dark – Riley Sager (adult thriller/horror)

arc apocalypse

My goal for this challenge was to read 30 ARCs and eARCs. I have read 15/30 so far, which is not as many as I thought I’d read by this point. To be fair, I also recently deleted a lot of eARCs that were 2+ years old, because I didn’t see any point in keeping them when I could check them out through the library and clearly wasn’t interested in some of them anymore.

  1. Red, White & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston
  2. All the Stars and Teeth – Adalyn Grace
  3. You Deserve Each Other – Sarah Hogle
  4. Ana Maria Reyes Does Not Live in a Castle – Hilda Eunice Burgos
  5. We Set the Dark on Fire – Tehlor Kay Mejia
  6. The Devouring Gray – Christine Lynn Herman
  7. When We Were Magic – Sarah Gailey
  8. Whichwood – Tahereh Mafi
  9. Three Dark Crowns – Kendare Blake
  10. Felix Ever After – Kacen Callender
  11. I’ll Be the One – Lyla Lee
  12. A Song Below Water – Bethany C. Morrow
  13. Be Dazzled – Ryan La Sala
  14. The Fell of Dark – Caleb Roehrig
  15. Cinderella is Dead – Kalynn Bayronn

      yay! it was actually the third time I’d tried to read that book, lol. I guess I was finally in the mood for it.

    You’re absolutely crushing it! And I’m glad to see you’re getting through those ARCs too!
