Side Challenge Saturday: Tackling My Currently Reading Shelf

This is not going to become a regular feature – I hope – but I wanted to do a public post about this because I need the accountability to get me to actually follow through with this.

I, yesterday, looked at my ‘currently reading’ shelf on Goodreads and my jaw dropped. I know that I have a habit of reading a lot of books at once, but I was actually shocked at the number of books I’ve picked up, read a bit of, and then stopped reading for whatever reason.

So, here’s my side challenge for the month. I want to finish reading all of the books that are already in my ‘currently reading’ shelf. I will obviously still be attempting to complete most of my February TBR as well – and the fact that we’re now almost 2/3 of the way through the month doesn’t bode well for getting all of these finished – but we’ll see how it goes.

Here’s the books that are currently in my Currently Reading shelf:

  1. Just One Damned Thing After Another – Jodi Taylor (pg.49)
  2. I Let You Go – Clare Mackintosh (pg.124)
  3. Rosie Goes To War – Alison Knight (pg.89)
  4. Orion’s Curse – Amy Bartelloni (25%)
  5. The Bones of the Earth – Scott Bury (3%)
  6. Suckers – Z. Rider (9%)
  7. Sacrificed – Emily Wibberley (28%)
  8. Half Lost – Sally Green (pg.18)
  9. Diary – Chuck Palahniuk (pg.30)
  10. Magruder’s Curiosity Cabinet – H.P. Wood (14%)
  11. A Robot In The Garden – Deborah Install (8%)
  12. Death Masks – Jim Butcher (pg.38)
  13. Alice In Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass – Lewis Carroll (pg.190)
  14. A Darkness At The End – Ruth Frances Long (pg.36)
  15. Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell (pg.
  16. Unbecoming – Jenny Downham (pg.218)
  17. Elantris – Brandon Sanderson (Not Started)
  18. One Piece: Skypeia 28-29-30, Vol.10 – Eiichiro Oda (Not Started)
  19. Corpus – Rory Clements (pg.57)
  20. The Eye Of The World – Robert Jordan (pg.64)
  21. Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone Illustrated Edition – J.K. Rowling & Jim Kay (pg. 14)
  22. As I Descended – Robin Talley (8%)
  23. Foul Is Fair – Jeffrey Cook (8%)
  24. In Another Life – Carys Jones (33%)
  25. Buzz Books 2017 Young Adult Spring/Summer Collection – Publishers Lunch (49%)
  26. Code Name Verity – Elizabeth Wein (pg.57)
  27. The Code of Magic – David D. Hammons (6%)
  28. A Thousand Cuts – Thomas Mogford (pg.9)
  29. The Witchfinder’s Sister – Beth Underdown (pg.183)
  30. The Sun Is Also A Star – Nicola Yoon (pg.304)

Okay… that was actually way more than I was expecting and there’s no way I’ll be able to read all of these books by the end of this month so maybe this will be an on-going Saturday post for a while.

I’ll obviously be adding to my Currently Reading shelf as I pick up more books but for the time being, these books will be given priority. Let’s see how long it takes me to actually get this list down to 0 (and then keep it under 5!).

Do you have the same problem as me? How many books are in your Currently Reading Shelf?
