Challenge update - Shelf Love Challenge and Mount TBR Reading Challenge

'Shelf Love Challenge' is hosted by Second Run Reviews: Choose the amount of books you want to deduct from your TBR shelves. Since all my challenges are aimed at lowering the number of books, I have opted for 51+ books.

So far I have read 25 books, so it is looking good for the 51+ I have opted for.

The next challenge goes hand in hand with the above. The aim is to lower the number of books on your TBR shelves.

'Mount TBR Reading Challenge' is hosted by My Reader's Block in order to reduce your TBR shelves. Always a great challenge for me. I opt for 100 books!

So far I have read 25 books, so it does not look that great! I have also opted for 100 books at Goodreads so definitely have to speed up my reading.

Here are the books read so far:

1. The life-changing magic of tidying by Marie Kondo
2. Our Man in Havanna by Graham Greene

4. The German Woman by Paul Griner

Well, summer is coming, or is already here. Although it will be a very busy time for me, I hope to be able to read some really nice books from my shelves.

How are you doing with your challenges? How does your summer reading, or winter reading for those in other parts of the world, proceed? The most important thing is that we enjoy the reading, discover new authors and books. My ’to read’ list is always filling up with your recommendations.
