My Reading and Writing Challenge by Mandy Rosko

Whew! The end of the month s here, and as usual, I feel like I didn’t get enough done, reading or writing wise.

This always happens to me, so even though I’m still technically ahead of my Goodreads reading challenge when you take away the short stories and mangas, I feel like I really need to catch up.

So naturally, April is going to be the month when I do that 🙂

So, what are my plans for April? Well, aside from it being my birthday month (And I don’t want to get another year older! No more! -_-) I want to finish at least one of the short stories I’ve got planned for the upcoming box set I’m going to be in at the end of the year. That, along with the books I’m contracted to do, should fit nicely with my schedule without giving me too many late nights  😉

Also, I want to READ MORE! I can’t stress this enough about how I feel like I’ve been doing little to no reading lately. I know it’s been a decent amount for my work load, but there needs to be more! I think I’m just greedy…

So, books I want to get read are as follows:

1) Onyx by Jennifer L Armentrout.

I’m about half done this one I think, so I want to finish it. Ready the first book in the series not too long ago, and really enjoyed it. I also have the other two, so the plans are to get to those, however, my next on the list will be…

2) C791 by Eve Langlais


3) Polar Bared by Eve Langlais

These two are because the RTC conference is coming up, and I want to hurry up and get as much read by her as I can that’s on my backlist. Also, I want her to sign my books 😉 The goal is to hopefully have those read and finished before the conference.

4) Halfway Home by Hugh Howey

I bought this one right before I finished reading Wool, with the intention of starting it up immediately after I finished Wool. I finished Wool, but for some reason picked up something else instead, even though Halfway Home looks amazing.

Anyway, it’s not a big list, but three and a half books should be more than doable within one month with my writing schedule :3 I just have to keep on with the not playing video games (Even though I really want to get back to Dragon Age Inquisition ;_;) and I’ll get my goals for the month while knocking off a few books from my Goodreads yearly goal 🙂

I’ve got so many books on my bookshelf that need reading, it’s kind of a sin that I keep finding excuses to buy more books -_- half of this challenge is really just to get me through them all before I buy more.

Does anyone else do this? Or am I just crazy? Do you all buy more books than you read? And how long do they stay on your TBR pile? I need to know!

Cheers until next week 😉
