Reading Challenges Check-In – October 2022

It’s time for another Reading Challenges Check-In! While I was pretty steady in my reading over the last few months I wasn’t overly focused on ticking off my challenges when choosing books. So, it will be interesting to see how I am going across all the categories! Without further ado, here’s some of the books I have read since my last reading challenge check-in!

Reading Challenges Check-In – March 2022

Today I thought I’d share some of my favourite reads so far for 2022 and also reflect on which reading challenges I’m yet to meet. I’d love to hear some recommendations for those categories too!
