We are almost half way through 2018 and it feels like about time to give an update on my reading challenge. Unfortunately, I am a bit behind, but I am hoping that the warmer weather will prompt me to sit on my patio, with a cocktail and a good book, many evenings to come. Until then - here are the reads that I have completed thus far in 2018.
The Death of Expertise: The Campaign Against Established Knowledge and Why It Matters by Tom Nichols ***
We're Going to Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union ****
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur ****
Bad Feminist: Essays by Roxanne Gay ****
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell ****
As you can see - I have not read any 5 star books, but I also have not read anything less than 3 stars, so I think that is a good start. I am also doing pretty well at completing all the books I start and I am trying my best to read one book at a time (this I have not been so good at).
As for the Book Riot Challenge - the books above fulfill 3 of the categories
A book of social science: Nichols
A celebrity memoir: Union
An essay anthology: Gay
So far this year I am ahead of previous years, but I still feel like my pace is too slow. Hopefully the summer will inspire me to do more reading!
How are you fairing with your 2018 book challenges and tbr lists? Let me know in the comments!
