Hello bibliophiles! This post is dedicated to the challenge I accepted a few weeks back. My 6 weeks deadline came to an end last Tuesday and it is time to share to you the books and prompts I managed to cross from my TBR.
As a mood reader, the books I set myself at the beginning of the challenge isn’t fix or permanent. You know how a mood readers’ mind works, so expect to see different books from the New Year Resolution Challenge TBR.
First and foremost, I would like to stay that having this time crunch challenge at the very beginning of the year, was such a good idea. I wouldn’t be able to read more under pressure without really forcing myself to read. It has become a habit to read everyday without feeling pressured because of a challenge. It came out to be a good motivation to read.
Here are the prompts that I needed to cross off:
Here are the books I managed to read in the timeframe as well as the prompts that I accomplish with that book:
🍉 The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn – Learn a New Skill
I finished this right before I posted my TBR because that just makes sense because my challenge started last January 7th.
I personally loved this book better than the first book and I love that we get to see more of Anthony and see him be a better version of himself and viscount. I have a review of all my thoughts posted, so check it out, Bridgerton Book 1 and 2 review.
🍓 The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee – Save Money
I finally gave in and read this book because the first book was really huge cliffhanger so reading this was everything I could ask for. Finally reading a second hand book is everything I could ask for. But I have to say that this book has another cliffhanger that really shocked me! I wanna read the next book right away, but gotta save up to get the last and final book of the trilogy.
🍒 An Offer From a Gentleman by Julia Quinn – Travel More
This book is in replacement to A Heart So Fierce and Broken because I was not able to read and finish the book on time. And I was still hangover the Bridgerton books so I jumped into the this book right away and I loved this book. This book is set in a different or foreign country, England or United Kingdom specifically, so that is completely different from where I am. I am just in a roll with reading the Bridgerton books.
🥝 The Astonishing Colors of After by Emily X.R. Pan – Spend More Time with Family & Friends and Focus on Self-Care
I have so much emotions for this book. I felt how emotional this book has but I find it too long and I don’t see how expounded the book is. But it really opened my eyes to the possibility of losing a mother and how heartbreaking that is. I hated the feeling for so long and this book helped me somewhat over come it.
🍉 Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han – Reduce Stress and Screw Resolutions, I Quit
I was not able to read the entire because I was at a time crunch and I was not feeling rereading the entire series. So I just decided to read this book for two prompts that I think fits this book so much. This book was a huge stress relief because I love this book so much and I am anticipating the release of the third and final movie. Plus this is a reread, third reread to be exact and it fits the last and final prompt.
I am happy with my progress with this reading challenge and it really is a huge motivation to read more. If you wanna see my progress with my reading challenge, here is my Goodreads Reading Challenge.
