Reading Challenge Checkin 2022 📚 #TackleYourTBR, #DevourYourTBR & 12 Books Challenge

2022 Checkin

Hello fellow bookworms 📚 The first half of the year is already over and I cannot quite believe it! Once again, I wanted to reflect on my progress with the Reading Challenges I joined this year, as I always enjoy seeing if I’m on track with my goals and how much I have achieved already. In case you’re interested you can see my original TBR in my Signup Post at the beginning of the year 📚 I’m also going to do a separate mid-year check-in for my own Out of Comfort Zone Reading Challenge later, just like I did last year, so I’m looking forward to writing that post too 💕

Me trying to keep up with my reading challenges


Goodreads Reading Challenge 📖


Read 65 Books ✅ I read 114 books this year son far

I’ve already completed my Goodreads Reading Challenge! 🎉 I always set myself the goal of reading 65 books as an attainable goal, even though I usually read more. This year I read a lot of books already, probably because I did the 28 in 28 challenge with graphic novels back in February. I’ve also been listening to lots of audiobooks on higher speed this year 🎧


12 Books Reading Challenge 💌

  • 12 Challenge {12 Months to read 12 Books Recommended by 12 Friends}
  • The Template was created by Shadowbooker over on Instagram.
  • I love the idea of reading books recommended by other bloggers/bookish friends so I knew that I had to join in 🥰 Thank you to everyone who sent in a recommendation! 💗

I have read 50% of the books already 🥳 None of them have been under 3 stars, so I enjoyed every book so far. My favorite book that I read is Between You, Me and the Honeybees 💕 I’m not sure what book to read this July but I’m planning on keeping up with this challenge!


#TackleMyTBR2022 📚


  • #TackleMyTBR2022 is hosted by Kim @ kimberlyfayereads and runs from January 1 – December 31, 2022
  • The goal is to read at least ONE book from your TBR every month. It can be an ARC, ebook, audiobook or print – your choice. Any reading is good reading!

Monthly Themes  📚

2022 TackleMyTBR

My #TackleMyTBR Goals 📚

  • Read 2 Owned Books per month (24 in total) ✅
  • Read 1 Book per Monthly Theme ✅
  • Only haul physical books that I’ll read in the next 3 months ✅ (only You’d Be Home Now left)
  • NEW! Read the majority of the books I hauled in 2022 ✅ (75% read)

Progress 📚 43 Books Read 

📚 Physical Books  (21 Books) || 📱 Kindle Books (22 Books)


This challenge is going SO well!! I originally planned to read 2 books per month so I could reach 24 books for the entire year, but I surpassed that already. I read 43 books so far (compared to 9 books by that time in 2021)!! Almost twice as much my target for the entire year 🥳 I’m very proud that I’m finally tackling my Physical and Kindle TBR and not only reading library books. I still haven’t read some of the oldest books on my TBR but I’m slowly getting there 😄

Progress 📚








I missed having a monthly reading theme (I did those back in 2019 or 2018 I think) so this was much fun! 🥰 Having a theme helps me pick out my TBR and though I also got distracted by Readathons, I always read some books for the monthly theme. I never had a set number of books I wanted to read per month, so I just picked up what I was most in the mood for that month! I’m very excited for the themes for the rest of the year, they sound fantastic 💕

  1. Oh wow you’re doing wonderful sweetie!! Love that !!

    Mine are going well too! I have a balance of Fr/Eng read, i’m 8 books ahead of schedule (only 6more to my goal!!) and I’ve been reading new genres I don’t usually pick up every month 😄 the only one that’s a bit slower is my audiobook challenge.. but considering I only need one more to go beyond what I had last year.. that’s fine ahah

  2. yay yay yay for all the progress made on your owned books!!! recently, i bought a few and i am already anxious about making my way through them.

    the only challenge i am a part of this year is the out of comfort zone one and i’m proud to say i’ve already read 9/10. i am even thinking about perhaps going for 15 instead of 10 books! so far, they have been really interesting books that i wouldn’t have tried otherwise.

    hope you’re having a great july, caro! all the luck with your challenges for the rest of the year!
