    It's hard, when you're on a reading roll, to put down the books and work on your own stuff.

    40 books! Good grief, you are almost halfway there, and it wasn't even the end of March when you last updated your list!
    Congratulations to you, Sage, and keep up the good work!

    I managed another 14 in March (taking me to 45 for the year to date), thanks in part to the tail end of a much-needed vacation.

    1. Tease by Amanda Maciel.
    2. The Eye Of Minds by James Dashner.
    3. The Plague Charmer by Karen Maitland.
    4. Beneath The Surface by Jo Spain.
    5. Seven For A Secret by Lyndsay Faye.
    6. They Can’t Kill Us All: The Story Of Black Lives Matter by Wesley Lowery.
    7. Truevine by Beth Macy.
    8. The Last Act Of Hattie Hoffman by Mindy Mejia.
    9. Cast Iron by Peter May.
    10. Is Science Racist? by Jonathan Marks.
    11. A Handful Of Ashes by Rob McCarthy.
    12. The Fix by Liam Vaughan and Gavin Finch.
    13. Cream Buns And Crime by Robin Stevens.
    14. Why Wall Street Matters by William D. Cohan.

    I'm still on a thriller kick, having started a YA thriller project but I've been trying to read more non-fiction too in order to expand my knowledge more. I still need to read more WOC and I have a few queued up on my pile but broadly I'm pretty happy with how my challenge is going this year.

    I purposefully decided to read EoS after building up a good lead on my 100-book challenge, seeing as it took me over a year to read her last one. Only 2 months for this one.

    Well, the last five have taken me much longer than I would have expected! The first two books both clocked in at around 600 pages and were pretty dense reads (the first one especially so). The last three slipped down a bit more easily, but work and a few other things have been a little more hectic than usual over the last couple of weeks, with the result that it has taken me almost a month to read the following five. Still, I'm almost halfway and it is not even June yet - I might make it after all!

    I could artificially pad my numbers by reading a few short books, but I think that would become a bit self-defeating. The purpose of the exercise is to read lots of wonderful books, and if that happens to be 70 or 80 rather than 100, well, you would still have read 70 excellent books.

    36. The Good Apprentice - Iris Murdoch
    37. Nuns and Soldiers - Iris Murdoch
    38. The Man of Property - John Galsworthy
    39. In Chancery - John Galsworthy
    40. To Let - John Galsworthy

    I had a slower June and only managed 10 but some of those were pretty long. Still on my crime/thriller kick and didn't manage any YA (although I've got a few on my July list) but it has helped my pull together the plot for my YA thriller so it's all good.
