Ahh… Another month done and dusted. January was a
good great month of reading, reviewing & blogging for me. This is what I hope to be the first of many monthly reading wrap ups for 2018. 🙂

Reading Challenge Progress
Modern Mrs Darcy Reading Challenge– I need your help!
I’ve read 3 out of the 12 books and while I’m happy with my progress, I am worried that I won’t be able to find books to fit some of the more creative topics.
The three that I’ve completed are:
- Book by an author of a different race, ethnicity or religion of your own- When Dimple Met Rishi, Sandhya Menon.
- A book of poetry, a play or an essay collection- The Princess Saves Herself in This One, Amanda Lovelace.
- A book by a favourite author- Landline, Rainbow Rowell.
The topics I need help with are:
- A book in translation
- A book that’s more than 500 pages
- A book you can read in a day
If you have any good suggestions for these topics, or just books in general, I would love to hear from you! 🙂
I have only read 1 book out of the twelve that I said I would read for this challenge. That book was Kite by Melvin Burgess. I’m actually reading another Backlist book now that I hope to finish next week.
13/80. I’m pretty happy with my progress for this challenge- according to Goodreads I’m 6 books ahead of schedule which can only be a good thing… 🙂
I am currently reading one eArc, have one waiting to be read and recently finished another. I still have 3 pending requests.
