Reading Challenge Update – #52Books52Weeks

I’ve been doing a much better job this month at actually getting some books checked off my list, so I thought I’d take a bit of a break in my review writing to do a little checkup on my 52 book challenge. Unfortunately, I’m still a couple of books behind, but I’ve made a lot of progress very quickly, so I’m still hopeful considering I have lots of this year left to go. The 52 Books challenge is hosted by Rachael over at The Booklist Queen.
