July's Reading Challenges and #BookishBingo

I've got several challenges on the go this year so, instead of cramming all the information into my Month In Books roundups, I thought I would make these monthly Bookish Bingo posts into Challenge roundups. Visit my Current Reading Challenges page to see the whole year's links.

Last month I added:

Alphabet Soup (2019): 2 in July / 19 overall

Books In French (2019): 1 in July / 3 overall

Classics Club (2018-23): 0 in July / 25 overall

COYER Summer Treasure Hunt: 85 points so far

Decade Challenge (2018-19): COMPLETE!

Mount TBR Challenge (2019): 1 in July / 21 overall

New Release Challenge (2019): 13 in July / 60 overall

Vegetarian / Vegan Character (ongoing): 1 in July / 11 overall

This challenge wrap-up post includes my new month of Bookish Bingo which is hosted each month at Chapter Break. I include books I actually read during June, but I might not have blogged all their reviews yet so if the cover image doesn't go anywhere when you click it, that's (probably) why!

This month I've got 18 squares completed

  1. How do you keep up with all of these challenges?? That's so many!! Good luck to you. Also, I'm going to keep tabs on your books with vegetarian/vegan characters. I'm vegan and it's not something you see too often in books.

    1. I started keeping track of the vegetarian/vegan characters when I did Veganuary this year. I'm happy to have stuck with vegan eating for myself, but would like to find more books characters doing the same!
      I'm using a vegan tag to identify the books I have found:

  2. The Bookish Bingo is going quite well. I didn't do any challenges.

    1. The COYER on top of the others has been a bit much, but it's only got August left to run so I'm sticking with it

    1. I'm still miles behind you on the Alphabet Soup :-(
