Reading Challenge Update!

It’s been a little while since I’ve updated my progress on the #vtReadingChallenge, so here’s a quick one.

Here’s what I’ve read so far this year…

  • A biography – Killing Jesus by Bill O’Reilly
  • A book with at least 400 pages – A Killer Among Us by Charles Bosworth Jr. (clocking in at 460 pages)
  • A book for children or teens – Time’s Divide by Rysa Walker
  • A memoir or autobiography – Upstairs at the White House: My Life with the First Ladies by J.B. West
  • A book written by an author with initials in their name – The Amber Project by J. N. Chaney
  • A book for children or teens – Transient Echoes by J. N. Chaney
  • A book of your choice – Hope Everlasting by J. N. Chaney

I’ve read some interesting stuff so far! The last three books are (obviously) part of a series. The fourth (and final) installment in that series comes out in March, so it will probably be my book published in 2017.

And here’s what I’m currently reading…

  • A book target at your gender – No Little Women by Aimee Byrd (just a few pages in and loving it already!!)
  • A book about preaching or public speaking – Christ-Centered Preaching by Bryan Chapell (recategorized from the seminary textbook category)
  • A book used as a seminary textbook – An Introduction to the New Testament by D. A. Carson & Douglas J. Moo (yes, this is one of my textbooks for this semester. #twobirds, recategorized from the book about the Bible category)

I’m still a tad behind but that’s what happens when you’re in your last semester of grad school and trying to plan a wedding. 😉 I’m not concerned about my pace, I know it will pick up in a couple weeks once my online class is over (which will also mean that Carson and Moo book will be finally finished!) and even more after graduation.

I did some recategorizing because I discovered a couple of books I am reading fit into their new categories better and left me open to read different books in their original categories.

Don’t forget: you can also follow my progress on Goodreads and catch my soundbite reviews. 😉

How is the reading challenge going for everyone else? Any recommendations? I’m always open to suggestions! 🙂 (and donations to my book fund 😉 )
