Wow I am doing even better than I expected with this challenge so far, almost two thirds of the books I read so far this year have been new releases. I have read a total of 34 books and 21 new releases.

How am I doing so far?

Goal: 31-60 books per year – New Release Pro
Total so far: 21
Total this quarter: 21

  1. Way to go on the challenge! You’ve got a fair few finished there.

    I’m doing this one, too. I’m well ahead of my estimated goal so I’ll probably climb to another level.

    With all my challenges, I’m doing well though eventually I have to get in the mood again for steampunk if I’m going to finish that category for the Romance Roundabout. What I’m most pleased about is taking care of the older review books on my shelf while also getting to the new releases as well.

    • I think it really worked out for me to only join this challenge as it felt in line with what I wanted to read this year 🙂

      Glad to hear you’re doing well with this one too and probably will climb to another level as well.

      I mostly have been focused on those new releases and my plan is to actually get new releases reviewed close around the release day if possible as I rarely manage that.

    • I am pretty sure I’ll reach those 31 at least, but I am really hoping to reach the upper border of the goal of 60 books. If I continue on like this that should be doable 🙂

  2. Congratulations, Lola – that is a really impressive list. I’m also hoping to have reviewed at least 50 new releases this year and I think I’m on target for those, to date. Here’s hoping the next quarter is as successful:).

    • Thanks! Seems our goals for the amount of new releases is pretty similar. I think I might even read more than my goal if I continue like this.

  3. You are kicking butt on this one so far! Nice. I’m doing pretty good with mine but I need to keep the pedal to the medal lol. Love some of those covers- I’m using Daydreamer Detective tomorrow for my cover spotlight. I think I saw it here originally…

    • I am pleased to see how well I am doing with this challenge so far :).

      The Daydreamer Detective covers are great! I was happy to see it as your cover spotlight as well.

    • Thanks :). I liked listing all the covers like that. I was considering only listing the titles, but showing the covers as well looks better I think.

    • That series by Jill Shalvis is a great! I just got the next Shalvis book for review, Lost and Found Sisters, I am looking forward to reading it.
