It’s the end of the year! Which means that it’s time to look back on all the challenges and see how we’ve done.
I didn’t join in on any challenges this year since I knew that I won’t be able to keep up with them all. College has been HECTIC, and I was expecting it. But there are two challenges that I always participate in passively. It’s the Goodreads reading challenge, where I set my goal to 150 books this year. Another is the A-Z Reading Challenge.
How this challenge works is that we have to read books for every alphabet. For A, we should read a book whose name starts with A. The one rule is that “The”, “A” and “An” doesn’t count. For Q, X and Z, the letters can be anywhere in the title.
P.S. This is part of my blogmas! Follow my blog to not miss any of my posts since I’ll be posting everyday leading up to Christmas. You can also check out all the posts I’ve published so far.

I completed it! When I was planning this post and noted down the books for every letter, I was still missing Q and Y. It was only last week that I managed to complete those haha. And that’s by cleverly choosing a small book for Y. But I’m glad I did 24 letters without consciously trying!
Are you doing the A to Z Reading Challenge as well? Or are you doing any other challenge? Tell me in the comments!
