Can you believe 2017 is half over? I thought it might be a good idea to give a quick update and report on my progress.

You can find the original post with the challenge details here.

The challenge includes 24 categories (two books a month on average) with 3 substitute categories in case you get completely stuck.

So far, I’ve covered the first 11 categories (and 2 of 3 alternate categories) on the blog. I’ve had some issues come up recently that have caused me to fall slightly behind but I have a plan to catch up – look for posts every week in July!

  1. A book that teaches you something new
  2. A book with a purple cover
  3. A library book
  4. A book written the year you were born
  5. A book written by a woman or with a kickass woman protagonist
  6. A book by a new-to-you classic author
  7. A coffee table book
  8. A book with the name of flower or plant in title
  9. A book set somewhere you’ve never been
  10. A book based on a true story/historical event
  11. A collection of short stories
  12. A book with a one-word title
  13. A book that helps explore your family history/heritage
  14. A recommendation from a friend
  15. A book written by an author of another race or belief system
  16. A book set in a school
  17. A memoir or biography
  18. A banned book
  19. A book by a one-hit wonder author
  20. A thriller
  21. A book adapted into a movie or tv show
  22. A famous author you’re embarrassed to admit you’ve never read
  23. A book you’re embarrassed to be seen with in public
  24. A book that takes place during winter

Substitute Categories:

  1. A book written by a doctor
  2. A book with a punny title
  3. A book that’s been on your TBR for more than 3 years

Personally, I’ve completed 18 categories (and 1 substitute). Remaining categories:

  1. A book written the year I was born
  2. A book with the name of a flower or plant in the title
  3. A book that helps explore my family history and/or heritage
  4. A book written by an author of another race or belief system (I may have completed this one, not sure)
  5. A memoir/biography
  6. A book by a one-hit wonder author (I may have also completed this one)
  7. Substitute: A book written by a doctor
  8. Substitute: A book with a punny title

Not bad. I’m surprised I haven’t read a memoir or biography yet this year. I’d have to look up all of my authors to see if I’ve read anything by a one-hit wonder, a doctor, or someone of a different race/belief system.
