This post is going to be an update on how I've gone so far in my 2016 Reading Goals. You can see my original post on these goals here.
I've not read much since semester started, but in the last 3 months I've managed to read 20 books. Which is on a reasonable track for my Goodreads challenge.
I haven't done any read-a-thons yet, I am planning on doing the BookTube-a-thon in the middle of the year. I joined the Feminist Orchestra Bookclub - but didn't manage to read the March book because my library hold didn't arrive in time. I've already got the next one so I should get back on track.
Out of the 20 books I've read 18 were written by women which is great for my read 50% women goal but thus far I have dismally failed at the people of colour aspect, I will work on that in the next months.
I have also managed to buy majority Australian authors as far as physical books go, which was really what I was aiming for.
As far as Read Harder for Book Riot and Panels goes I've been acquiring books but not gotten around to reading them yet. I have read the Brothers Sinister series by Courtney Milan for the historical fiction set before 1900. And I have decided on about half the books I am planning to read.

Hollow city - Ransom Riggs
Summer Skin - Kristy Eagar (aus)
My Sister Rosa - Justine Larbalestier (aus)
