April '19 challenge wrap-up

Sooooooooo… my eleven challenges… (sign up posts part 1 and part 2) This is my March recap on how I’m going against them.  If you’re after my monthly reading wrap-up click HERE, and if you’re after my haul, click HERE. *PHEW!* All of the updates below will be my progress as at midnight 28 February 2019.

(So close to halfway!!)

Beat the Backlist

Read 33 of 50 books.

April Beat the Backlist challenge progress
Slow, but steady progress… in case you haven’t figured it out, I am attempting to hit every square on this, not just a row or column. There are so many books on here that could just fill 2-3 lines, but I’m going for books that hit random prompts first to try and get the harder ones out of the way early!

Year of the Asian

Read 9 of 10 books.
I am totally going to win more than the tarsier!!

NOTE: If I read a higher star book then I will probably replace the previous book against the letter because I’m starting to read doubles and I only want top quality books on here! These will not be blue as the letter was already accounted for. I will also not be using Discworld books for this challenge.
