Happy Sunday y’all! This week was another busy but good one. My son went to VBS at a local church with a friend and had a blast. Then my husband’s uncle and family were in town visiting so we spent Friday afternoon with them. Yesterday we built a computer with Kano PC. Little man loves learning code so we splurged. So far it’s been a fun learning experience. We are doing computer science as an elective next school year so he’s getting a jump on the lessons. We also kicked off Summer of Love this week. It was a blast! Looking forward to a slower week this week. I can’t believe that summer break is nearly half over! I still have so much to do before we start school like paint two bedrooms….I guess we will see if that gets done.

2021 Reading Challenges – 2nd Quarter Update

I meant to post this in it’s own post yesterday, but time got away from me. I figured I’d post an abbreviated version here 😉 I’m only participating in four challenges this year, and so far it’s looking good that I will meet them. I’m at 60/100 for my Goodreads challenge as well so I may up that one. You can see the books I’ve read and keep up with my challenges here.

COYER 2021
Spring season finishes today. I challenged myself to read 20 books, and I managed to read 26. Summer starts tomorrow and I’m going to stick with 20 books as my goal. 

2021 Finishing the Series Reading Challenge
My goal for this one is to be an A-List series finisher with 9+ series completed or caught up on. So far I’ve read 6 books for the challenge, completing 3 series and catching up on 1. 

This is the one I’ve always struggled with in the past. My goal is to read 50 books from Netgalley. I’ve read 7 so far this year, I need to pick up the pace so I can reach my goal.

2021 New Release Challenge
Because I started this one late in the year, I set my goal to 40 new releases. I’ve never had an issue meeting my goals for this one, and I don’t think I will this year either. I’ve read 12 new releases so far this year, 13 if you include my current read 😉 

2021’s Summer of Love is Here!

I am teaming up with Celebrity Readers and Once Upon a Chapter to bring you a summer reading event. Summer of Love started June 21st and runs for 12 weeks. We will be reading and reviewing contemporary romance all summer long! A zombie or two may also be thrown in 😉 Want to join us? Sign up here anytime between now and September 1st.

Your Turn! What are you reading this week?

  1. We painted two of our bedrooms this weekend. Well, we hired someone to do the painting, but it was still exhausting clearing off furniture and moving things. I didn’t realize how much stuff my kids had collected! Good luck on your reading challenges! Looks like you’re making great progress.

    Here’s my SUNDAY POST this week. — Diana
