2019 Challenge Updates

December 30, 2018

Here is where you can find LIVE updates to my current reading challenge progress!

It only took until March 15th for me to realize I had bitten off far more than I could chew by trying to keep up with all of these assorted goals at the same time. ? So, I’ll still be keeping up with some of them, but others, I’ll just update on rare occasions and at the end of the year.

      Thank you!! Ooooh, let me know if you want to buddy read Second Chance Summer after we finish the Mara Dyer books because I seriously need to hurry up and read it lol. And did you still want to read the 2nd Mara book in January?

      • Reply bookishinbed January 19, 2019 at 10:48 am

        I am so sorry it took me so long to respond to this. I have been slacking hardcore with comments. I am down for Second Chance Summer if you haven’t read it. I also would like to read the second Mara with you whenever you have time to.

        • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries January 19, 2019 at 11:59 pm

          No worries!! I just caught up on literally 150 missed comments in the last 48 hours so I feel you lol. It was crazy. But I still haven’t read Second Chance Summer so I’d be down for that and also Mara! I would love to fit one or both of them into February if you’re available!

          • bookishinbed February 1, 2019 at 12:31 pm

            Oh wow that’s wild. Yeah I am still down for doing one or even doing both. I think that would be a lot of fun. I will text you later about it.

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries February 2, 2019 at 6:40 am

            Awesome! I’m sorry I didn’t reply to your text last night, me and the kiddo both got super sick yesterday and I basically just crashed early last night and by the time I woke up it was so late I didn’t want to risk waking you haha. But I’ll text you in a bit when I grab my phone 🙂

    1) This page is a really good idea. I have a post on a Goodreads forum where I track my challenges, but no place on my blog so far…
    2) that read 5 buy 1 thing is SO GOOD.
    3) I love your personal bingo!! 😀
