May Challenge Wrap Up

I went a bit nuts this year with challenges; I hope I can accomplish them all. The only one I'm not tracking is my goodreads reading challenge; all the rest I'll include in my monthly wrap up post. This month I did a personal challenge (I'm not tracking) to read mostly books that I won or was gifted but I did sneak in a few review books and other books.

Last month I participated in the month long Clean Sweep ARC Challenge co-hosted by The Caffeinated Reviewer and Angela's Anxious Life. Despite one DNF, I actually exceeded the goal I set for myself. :)

Grab a drink, get comfy, and get ready!

  5. I signed up for Clean Sweep Arc Challenge but I was really a non-participant. I was still in a bit of reading funk when the challenge started and I only read 3 review books last month. My goal had been 9. OOPs! Well you did amazing, though! Congrats Bea :)

    I can only really do one at a time or they get to be too much for me to keep track of.

  7. You did fantastic on the Clean Sweep Challenge, and I'm totally impressed with your series-finishing prowess. :-)

    Do you have a trick for keeping track of all the challenges? That's always a struggle for me.
