not a review

2019’s First Quarter Update

I would love to be the kind of person that is organized enough to do a monthly update but between my WWW posts and my backlog of reviews I was thinking maybe four times a year would be more my pace. With the first three months of 2019 behind us it is time to look back at how I did during the first quarter of the year!


Challenge Updates


Harry Potter Canon: I have read exactly ONE. Which is really a shame because I loved every single page.


Serious Series Love: I finished Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians trilogy and it was delightful. You can see my full review here.

I started a new series which has been on my shelf for quite some time and I love it! One Fine Myth by Robert Asprin. I need to continue reading these as they are delightful.


Beat the Backlist: It is embarrassing to think I have only managed to read six measly books off of my backlist. I need to really get serious about these beautiful books! I also bought way more books than I should have when I was sad. I’ve got to get a grip!


Audiobook Challenge: Meanwhile, I am feeling quite proud of my audiobook list! I have already enjoyed NINE audiobooks this year!


Learn Something New: It took me a bit to think of what I wanted to focus on but I finally selected Sherlock Holmes / Arthur Conan Doyle after reading Conan Doyle for the Defense. There are a LOT of books about Sherlock and Arthur and I hope to get a chance to read at least five before the end of 2019.


Library Love Challenge: My library love knows no bounds! By my estimation (and believe me, this is an estimate – this doesn’t include DVDs, magazine or books I checked out and didn’t finish) I have saved $334.96 since January 1st!


Goodreads Challenge: I am also ahead here even though I had an abysmal March and have read 35 books so far this year.


Tell me, please!

How is your 2019 Reading so far?
