Wrapping June 2018


Good-ish reading month.

  • Books DNFed: 4 – Yeah, I know!
  • Short Stories Read: 25
    • Highlights: “Playing with Fire” by Arthur Conan Doyle (a non-Sherlock Holmes story concerning a séance before Doyle was into spiritualism) and “Bog Girl” by Karen Russell.
  • Challenge Updates:
    • 20 Books of Summer: I’m 4/15, which is a little behind, but I did DNF one of the books on my list.
    • 2018 Nonfiction Reading Challenge: No progress on my list and I’m slightly below the 25% nonfiction  mark (24%).
    • 2018 TBR Challenge: No progress here either. I’m reading Heaven’s Ditch, which is good, but a little slow.
    • Wild West Reading Challenge: I’ve read 3/6 for this challenge, so right on track for the middle of the year!
    • Shelf Maintenance: Added three books; one I’ve already read, one was a prize, one is an October deadline ARC.
