Last month, I decided to give #BookADayMay a try. I’ll admit, it didn’t go exactly as planned. I hold to my “all progress is good progress” mentality, but 15/31 books doesn’t really warrant a celebratory wrap-up blog post. Instead, I’ve decided to simply share about the books I did manage to read this May.Continue reading
Books are a big part of my life all year ’round, but kicking off summer with a reading challenge has always been my favorite tradition. There’s something about that first day with the A/C on that makes me wild for a trip to the library…
That being said, it’s a lot easier for me to stay focused when there’s some sort of incentive attached, which is why I decided to participate in Middle Grade Carousel‘s first official #BookADayMay challenge!
Between #MGCarousel’s book bingo and binging on #IndieApril reads, I packed in a lot of pages during April. An accomplishment, considering I also managed to write 30,000 words for Camp NaNoWriMo (yay!). Oh, and I’ve been plugging away at #36daysoftype on Instagram. It’s been a wild month.
Don’t ask how I managed, but that’s a TRIPLE Bingo! I’m pretty excited about having read so much in one month. Honestly, most of them were pretty stellar, too. That’s a win-win in my book!
It’s been a great summer of reading. In total, I’ve plowed through about 30 books in the last 3 months! I owe a lot of my success to the various reading challenges that went up this summer, mainly from #MGBookVillage and #MGCarousel.
I may have bit off more than I could chew in July, but I certainly had fun mowing down on these books!

June is over, and I managed to squeak in a BINGO! With a total of nine categories filled out on the board, I’m feeling pretty good about the dent in my summer reading pile.
Up to six books read this month, but no Bingo… it seems that a little strategy might be called for in the second half of the month.

To keep things interesting, I’m using book bingo to help me get through my summer reading pile.
