2019 Reading Challenges: Update – February

Dear book-lovers,

The second month of 2019 has come and gone, in a whirlwind of snowflakes, laughter and tears, yup, I’m one of those readers, who cry while reading. However, this has been a great reading month, since I read 18 books (and a special Riden’s chapter from Daughter of the Pirate King), and surprisingly I’m doing very well with my 13 challenges. So let’s look at the books I read for each of my challenges in 2019 February’s reading challenges update*Note. ARC – advanced readers copy, RC – review copy, as the book was received after its publication date.

Goodreads Reading Challenge – 31/80 (12+19)
