Wrap up of my 2019 challenges - let's see how I went!

It's that time of year when we look back over our challenge pledges and see how we went.

You can read my 2019 sign up post here 

My first one was the Book Lover Book Review Aussie Author Challenge. 

I signed up for Kangaroo level:
4 x female authors, 4 x Male authors, 4 x New to me authors, 3 x genres.
My completed challenge was:
38 x Female authors, 5 x Male authors, 26 x New to me authors, 8 x Genres. With a total of 43 books read.

I was happy with the results here but I definitely need to increase my male Aussie authors in 2020.

Next up was the Australian Women Writers Challenge. 

I nominated to read and review 30 books for this challenge.
My completed challenge was 38 books read and reviewed.

A new challenge for me this year was the Ginger Mum and Company A - Z challenge.

Read a book for every letter of the alphabet. I managed to read 23 of the 26 letters.
Check here to see which books I read and what letters I missed. 

Another new to me challenge was the Book Bingo challenge hosted by Theresa Smith Writes , Mrs B’s Book Reviews and The Book Muse.
I was a slightly worried about this one but I did manage to finish the whole bingo card of 30 books. You can read my wrap up post here
My final challenge was the Aussie Readers Group (on Goodreads) annual colour challenge. Read 2 books each with covers of 6 different colours. 
You can see the books and covers I chose here 

Well that's a wrap for 2019. Some challenges I will be sticking with in 2020 and some I will be dropping but I am sure I will pick up a couple more.
Look out for my 2020 challenge sign up post coming soon.
