Fictionophile Blog Update – First Quarter of 2021

Yes folks, 2021 has reached the 1/4 mark. In an effort to keep organized and structure my reading, I’ve compiled this post to track my reading progress since January 1st.

I have read 35 books so far this year and reviewed them all:


I am doing well with my NetGalley Reading Challenge:

I am doing well with my Edelweiss Reading Challenge:

Here is where I stand with my Winter Book Bingo card:I have completed by Historical Fiction Reading Challenge pledge by reading FIVE titles:

I’m not making much progress with my “What’s In A Name” reading challenge:

Likewise, I’m progressing slowly with my Bookbloggers Reading Challenge:

I read and reviewed the SEVEN titles I pledged to read in March as part of the
Reading Ireland Month Challenge

My NetGalley Feedback Ratio continues to stand at 75%

My Edelweiss Feedback Ratio stands at 69%As of today, I have 234 review commitments outstanding. OUCH! In an effort to reduce this scary number, I am trying hard to refrain from requesting anything for the next few months.

At present, there are 132 titles on my NetGalley shelf  SO… I am reading ONLY NetGalley titles in April.Book Blogging… the struggle is real.

    I love your donkey and carrot graphic Lynne. Good luck with your Netgalley only reading this month. I not only have no shelf control, but I can’t stick to a TBR if my life depended on it. You are doing well with your challenges and you still have lots of time left this year.

  2. Good luck with your Netgalley April, you’re doing pretty well on your challenges. I’ve avoided any challenges other than trying to reduce my tbr (incorporating Kindle, bookshelves and NetGalley)

    ‘Shelf control’ – love it!


  6. So many challenges, Lynne! They’re great for giving your reading direction, but when I’ve done really prescriptive one’s, I find it becomes a chore. I’ve never considered having so many Netgalley books on my shelf, as I try to read and review all that I’m granted on there. Do you get through them all eventually, or do some just expire?
