I figured today was a good day to give you an update of my reading challenges! My current goal is 200 books, and I think I can make it. As I’m getting down to the end of a few of the challenges, it’s getting much tougher since I put off some of the harder categories.
Book #132 – To Make Monsters Out of Girls – this fulfilled a book by a female author in the Reading Bingo challenge.
Book #133 – Note to Self: Inspiring Figures Write to the Young People they Once Were – this fulfilled a book of short stories in the Reading Bingo challenge.
Book #134 – An Audience of One: Reclaiming Creativity for Its Own Sake – this fulfilled a book involving a sport in the Popsugar challenge. He talks a lot about surfing, so I eeked this one in. 😀
Book #135 – The Sun Is Also a Star – this fulfilled a young-adults best seller in the Mommy Mannegren 52 books challenge.
Book #136 – A Spark of Light – this fulfilled none of my challenges.
Book #137 – Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity – this fulfilled none of my challenges.
Book #138 – Way of the Warrior Kid: The New Recruit – this fulfilled a book mentioned in another book in the Popsugar challenge. His first book, was mentioned in Tools of the Titans (I think. Haha, eeked this one too).

Book #143 – Influencer: Building Your Personal Brand in the Age of Social Media (affiliate link) – this fulfilled a book with a one-word title in the Reading Bingo challenge. Haha, this was another eeker cus it technically has a subtitle. What can I say, it’s getting close to the end of the year. But all joking aside, this book was AMAZING for anyone thinking of being an influencer online. Very meat and potatoes and I love those kinds of books. I highly recommend it! As I mentioned, it is an affiliate link, which just means I get a small percentage if you order, at no additional cost to you. It’s a way of saying thanks for my recommendation!
