2018 Reading Challenges Final Update

Happy Friday, everyone! Today I'm sharing my 2018 reading challenges final update and looking back at what I've managed to accomplish this year. Last year was rough. I only signed up for three challenges and didn't manage to complete a single one! In 2018 I was feeling a bit better and more determined to meet my goals. I signed up for three challenges again and also participated in the Fraterfest Read-a-Thon. Here's how that went!


This is a challenge I've participated in every single year since I started blogging. This year I committed to a goal of 30+ audiobooks and managed to beat that by 10! Since I read so many that sharing all the links would be excessive, here are the best and worst audiobooks I was able to get to this year:



I love graphic novels, but this ended up being more challenging than I expected it to be! It came down to the wire and I had to scramble a bit to get a couple more in, but I managed to get them! Here are the best and the worst: 



I REALLY did not think I was going to complete this challenge! There were several times when I almost gave up, but I managed to pull it off. I didn't make it to the advanced categories, but I did check every other box and I am so proud of myself! You can see everything I read for this challenge on my 2018 Challenges page, here! I had to go way out of my comfort zone to get them all, so here are some books I read that I wouldn't have otherwise. 


Wooo I actually participated in a read-a-thon and read some books! I only made it through four, but it felt like a huge accomplishment!


This year I set my goal to 75 after failing miserably in 2017. I managed to beat it by quite a few books, although I'll admit a couple were DNFs. Here's hoping I can keep it going in 2019! 

So that's it! I completed my goals this year and I couldn't be happier! Keep an eye out in the next week or two for my 2019 challenge goal post!
