Flights of Fantasy: Check-in (2)

b36ba-flightsoffantasy-2016

Flights of Fantasy reading challenge is hosted by Alexa Loves Books and Hello, Chelly.

End of January, beginning of February! Is it just me, or does time pass much more quickly once you’re finished with school? At any rate, let’s check in….

In January, I read a total of 10 books, only 4 of which had mainly fantasy elements (I still get confused as to whether or not dystopians and sci-fis are technically fantasy, so I won’t count those).

  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  • Nightmares! by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller
  • Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling [re-read]

Considering I should average between 3 and 4 fantasies a month to meet my goal of 40 fantasies this year, I guess I’m on track so far! And a sidenote: I do tend to re-read the Harry Potters once or twice a year. I just happen to be in the middle of a re-read, since reading the illustrated edition at the end of 2015.

Officially joining the #RockMyTBR challenge!

I’ve already mentioned that I own so too many books that I haven’t yet read, so I’m joining in The YA Book Traveler‘s challenge to read at least 1 book a month that I already own. I’m actually going to up that number to 5. I want to read at least 5 books from my TBR stacks every month! More likely than not, this will also tie back into my Flights of Fantasy challenge.

So far in January, I have read 3 books from my TBR list: Six of CrowsNightmares!, and on Friday I finished Of Beast and Beauty. A nice trend I’ve started that I hope to keep up with (she says as she makes her way through a library book).

Flights of Fantasy reading challenge!

Hey all! In keeping with my desire to blog more and read more this year, I’ve decided to join in Hello Chelly‘s and Alexa Loves Books‘ Flights of Fantasy reading challenge, my first reading challenge ever. Since starting Harry Potter around first grade, I’ve loved fantasy books and have roughly 33 books on my TBR shelves that are fantasy (out of 74 total books on my TBR shelves). And that doesn’t even include some big names in fantasy, like Juliet Marillier or Robin McKinley, both of which I want to try as well this year.

Accounting for some of my TBR fantasies as well as some I’ll inevitably get from the library and buy this year, I hereby goal myself at a healthy 40 fantasy books to read this year. I don’t yet want to commit to joining the Flights of Fantasy book club as well, but I might try to work in some of those here and there.

Stick around, and I just might keep you posted on my progress!
