Hello bookworms!

Back in January I mentioned that I would be doing the Goodreads Reading Challenge, the 2021 PopSugar Reading Challenge, and the 50 States Book Challenge.

I thought it would be fun to give an update on my progress, since we are halfway through the year…

Goodreads Reading Challenge

Goal: 50 books

Books Read: 39

PopSugar Reading Challenge

Prompts Completed: 8

  • A book that’s published in 2021: Flight (Texas Murder Files #2) by Laura Griffin
  • A book by an author who shares your zodiac sign: Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
  • A book with something broke on the cover: Far Gone by Laura Griffin
  • A magical realsim book: Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani
  • A book that has fewer than 1,000 reviews on Amazon or Goodreads: Glimmer as You Can by Danielle Martin
  • Your favorite prompt from a past PopSugar Reading Challenge (I chose A book by two female authors): Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
  • A DNF book from your TBR list: Searching for Sylvie Lee by Jean Kwok

50 States Book Challenge

States Completed: 12

  • California: Virgin River series (ongoing) by Robyn Carr
  • Illinois: Rent a Boyfriend by Gloria Chao (partially takes place in Chicago)
  • Maryland: Well Met by Jen DeLuca
  • Massachusetts: Paris is Always a Good Idea by Jenn McKinlay (partially takes place in Boston)
  • New Jersey: The Stranger by Harlan Coben
  • New York: Nikki Heat series (ongoing) by Richard Castle
  • North Carolina: The Night Swim by Megan Goldin
  • Oklahoma: Frontier Follies: Adventures in Marriage & Motherhod in the Middle of Nowhere by Ree Drummond
  • Oregon: Close Case (Samantha Kincaid #3) by Alafair Burke
  • Rhode Island: The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter by Hazel Gaynor (partially takes place in Rhode Island)
  • Texas: Stone Cold Heart (Tracers #13) by Laura Griffin
  • Washington: J.P. Beaumont series (ongoing) by J.A. Jance

While I’m not reading just to meet the challenge goals, it has been interesting to see which books align with some of the prompts. Having looked ahead at my To-Read list, I am pleased to see that quite a few of the books I plan to read later this year will meet even more of the prompts than in the first half of the year.

Are you participating in any reading challenges this year? Tell me about them in the comments!
