2018 Reading Challenges and What I'm reading this month

This year I decided to do at least one reading challenge to help me hit my reading goal and maybe push me into reading books that I normally wouldn’t. So, I decided to do the Pop Sugar 2018 Challenge and the 2018 Read Harder Challenge by Book Riot.

So, here’s what I’m reading for the month of April:

A Book made into a movie you’ve already seen: Best Exotic Marigold Hotel by Deborah Moggach

A book involving a heist: The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

A book that involves a bookstore or library: Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

A Novel based on a real person: The Woman on the Orient Express by Lindsay Jayne Ashford

A Book published posthumously: Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott

The book made into a movie one was a little difficult, I usually purposely read the book before I see the movie if I know there is a book. Although I could have also used Breakfast at Tiffany’s for this, that book has been on my TBR list for years.

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore is the April group read for the Pop Sugar Challenge; it was the first book I read for April. I enjoyed it! It had been on my radar for awhile also, and I’m glad I finally read it. It was my first book by Sloan, and I am interested in reading more by him.


So far I have read 11/50 for the Pop Sugar Challenge and 7/24 for the Read Harder Challenge. I have read 21/80 books so far this year for my Goodreads Challenge.
