My Challenges:

I’m doing pretty well on my book challenges.

Goodreads 2022 Reading Challenge: With only one book to go… I think I’ve got this one!


2022 Audiobook Challenge: I’m at 25 out of 30 books, but I’ve listened to 5 more that I haven’t posted yet, so it’s just a matter of writing the reviews and posting them before the end of the year.

2022 NonFiction Reader Challenge. I’m at 3 out of 6, but I’ve listened to 3 nonfiction audiobooks in the last week that will count toward this challenge and the Audiobook Challenge ⬆️. So, once again, it’s just a matter of writing reviews and posting them before the end of the year.

  1. It looks like you had a fantastic October! I’m so glad you read so many books and that most of them were books you loved! 😀 Good luck in November!

  2. What a great reading month! I think I managed 14 books which is slightly higher than normal for me. I’m reading It Starts With Us right now and am enjoying it so much. Glad to see it was one of your favorites!

  3. Wow! That is an amazing reading month! Nice job! I love that you even got a head start on the cozy Christmas books. I have a few on my list. Have fun with your travels, and congrats on crushing your Goodreads goal.

  4. Wow! 31 books for October? That’s awesome! You’re nailing your challenges as well. I only signed up for one besides my yearly Goodreads challenge and that was Kimberly’s audio book challenge. I’m at 79 and I need to get to 100. Hopefully I’ll make it! I’ve almost made my GRs challenge at 118/125. Although, I did lower that from 150 to 125 because with the move there was just no way. Good luck!

  5. Well done! I am always amazed at the number of books some people can read in a day, a week, or month. I’m doing well if I read four in one month and that’s pushing it. Lol. 🙂

  6. You certainly had a great month of reading. How nice that you had a space in there to get ahead in preparation for a busy November and December.

  7. You had an exceptional month of reading. I’m supposedly a few books ahead of schedule to complete my Goodreads yearly challenge but I don’t pay it much mind. Hope November is great!

  8. Wow, that’s awesome Wendy!!! 31 is amazing! I have no idea how many I read in October, I haven’t done this post yet. I do know I read some books for my challenges…we’ll see what it looks like 😉

    You had a wonderful month! I am looking forward to starting the audio for The Stand-up comedian.

  10. Okay but like… i love how you read so many Christmas books! I was in a huge Christmas reading mood toward the end of October so I’m happy I’m not the only one! hehe.

    Fantastic reading month! I’m jealous. I need to get back into reading 🙁
