Reading Goals - 6 Month Update

6months

This post is an update on how I've gone so far in my 2016 Reading Goals. You can see my original post on these goals here and my first three month update here.

In April, May and June I read 22 books, which means I have read 45 this year. This is a little behind for my Goodreads challenge but not too bad.

I still haven't done any read-a-thons yet. I've signed up for the 24in48 read-a-thon at the end of July. I am also planning on doing the BookTube-a-thon, also in July.

For the Feminist Orchestra Bookclub (I'm really behind).
I read:
A Room of One's Own
I Call Myself a Feminist

Out of the 45 books I've read this year 37 were written by women, which is great for my read 50% women goal. I have also managed to buy majority Australian authors.

Read Harder for Book Riot and Panels goes:

Book under 100 pages - A Room of One's Own
A collection of essays - Small Acts of Disappearance
A non-fiction book about feminism - I Call Myself a Feminist
Comic with teenage protagonist - Ms Marvel
Gender swapped superhero comic - A-Force (Thor)
Comic based on a book, and the book - Pride and Prejudice (Marvel Classics), and Pride and Prejudice
A collected webcomic - Hark! A Vagrant
