Monthly Challenge Update – May 2019

So this month was a crazy reading month, I worked away for nearly 2 weeks which gave me masses of time to read, then I took a mental health week where I sat around reading and doing art. So this month I read 30 books, I think I need to slow down and find another passion.

may update 2019

17 of those books were written by Australian women bringing my total for the AWW Challenge to 75, I may or may not have reached my goal in this, I’ll have to go back and take a look at what number I set myself.

The Goodreads challenge is 125/200 making me comfortablly ahead of my goal.

My Aussie Author challenge was finished last month, I still have to go on the website and link my books. I’ve been a bit slack.

I read some really fantastic books this month, I have 4 standouts of which you can click on to read my reviews incase you missed them. A Lifetime of Impossible Days by Tabitha Bird , The Lost Boy by Rachael Wright, these two affected me emotionally quite deeply. The Cinema at Starlight Creek by Alli Sinclair and Under a Midnight Sky by Anna Romer were both wonderful reads also.

Until next month, happy reading.

    1. I don’t know about that. I have noticed over the last 6 months, my eyes get way more tired and I find it harder to focus them at times, it won’t stop me though.

  2. I’m in awe of your reading capabilities Claire! I managed 9 books for May, 8 of those being female Aussie authors. We really have some amazing talent in this country. I too enjoyed Under The Midnight Sky by Anna Romer and I’m very much looking forward to reading Tabitha Bird’s debut novel. Always good to take time for ourselves! Happy reading!! 💟📚


    1. Thank you Geraldine, I think this month will be much slower, that was an anomaly, I stayed up late reading many of those books. Yes, we have some wonderful talent and I definitely read a majority of Australian authors, mainly women. We are extremely lucky. I hope you enjoy Tabitha’s book. Happy reading x
