Here it is already August and I need to do an update on my progress for my challenges. Most of these will be as of the end of June, some the end of July. I am full of good intentions, but I would always rather read then keep track of challenges.

2022 Beat the Backlist Reading Challenge – My goal is 100 backlist books for this year. To qualify for this challenge it had to be published before October 2021. I have read 72/100 as of July 31

2022 FINISHING THE SERIES READING – My goal is B-LIST SERIES FINISHER β‡’ COMPLETE 5-8 SERIES. For my challenge I am including only series with 2 or more books to finish. As of July 31st, I have finished 6 series that I had started prior to 2022, and have started on several others. Technically I have completed this challenge, but I am going to continue.

Bookblogger’s Fiction Reading Challenge 2022, This challenge is hosted by Lynne at Fictionophile. I have only read 5/6 as of July 31st, so I am almost finished this one.

Buzzwordathon 2022 Reading Challenge Each month there is a prompt and I select a book to fit it. I am on track with the first 7 prompts complete.

What’s in a Name? Challenge 2022 – This challenge is hosted by Andrea @ Carolina Book Nook. There are 6 prompts to complete and as of June 30th, I have fulfilled all 6 prompts.

2022 Audiobook Challenge Caffeinated Reviewer and That’s What I’m Talking About are the co-hosts for the 10th year of this challenge. My goal is The 100 Club (Audiobook Elite) 100+ As of June 30th, I have listened to 149 audiobooks. I was in shock as I updated my list, but it makes sense as I listen to about a book a day. I have basically completed this challenge, but I will continue to log my audiobooks.

2022 Nonfiction Reader Challenge – This challenge is hosted by Bookdout. There are a variety of levels as well as categories so you can personalize this challenge to what works for you. My goal is to increase my reading of Nonfiction, so I set my goal at 24 books, 2 per month. As of July 31st, I have read 8 adult nonfiction books and 16 children’s nonfiction. I am behind on this challenge, but I knew it would be difficult for me as I don’t read a lot of non-fiction.


Christmas In July: I set my goal to read 10 Christmas books in July. I read ten, but have two others I am going to read in August that I had already downloaded.

20 Books of Summer: This challenge is hosted by Cathy at 746 Books. My goal was to read 20 books with the word “Summer” in the title. Most are from my backlist. At present I have read 15/20 so I am a bit behind. I will have to read 5 in the next 3.5 weeks.

There you have it. I am pretty much on track for most of my challenges with a couple already complete.

Are you participating in any of these challenges? How are you doing?
