30 Day Challenge | 30 Books in 30 Days in 2022 Results

It’s officially May, which means my 30 books in 30 days in 2022 challenge is over. And it’s time to share the results. This month was actually a strong reading month for me. Not only with the challenge, but because I genuinely wanted to read.

In total, in this challenge, I managed to read 14 books. More than I expected, but not quite 30. As much as the name of the challenge is 30 books in 30 days, really for me it’s more of an aim. So long as I read over 10 in a month and get as close to 30 as I can then I’m happy.

Here is a reminder of the books I wanted to read, and a note on whether or not I’ve started them.
