#ArmedWithABingois a year-long reading challenge hosted by Kriti Khare & Ariel Joy and this is my end of September update.
The books I read for the challenge in this third quarter of the year are highlighted in gold, but aside from the challenge, I’ve read a dozen or so more. I’ve always read a wide range of genres but the #armedwithabingo challenge has encouraged me to read even more widely. So far this year, I’ve enjoyed every single book I’ve read. What a happy place to be!
If you’re curious to know what I thought of any of the books I’ve read, pop over to Goodreads where you’ll find my reviews.

#ArmedWithABingois a year-long reading challenge hosted by Kriti Khare & Ariel Joy and this is my end of June update.
The books I read for the challenge in this second quarter of the year are outlined in yellow, and straight away I’ll tell you that my stand out book was Trevor Noah’s ‘Born a Crime’. If you’re curious to know what I thought of this or any of the books I’ve read, pop over to Goodreads where you’ll find my reviews. I do think it’s important to support authors with reviews – I know how much it means to us.
You can also find out more about my reading habits and my response to the #ArmedWithABingo challenge in aninterviewI did with Kriti Khare at the beginning of this month.
And now, with only four more books to go to complete the challenge, maybe I’ll try do a second bingo board for the second half of the year. Meanwhile, if anyone has a suggestion for a book with a food in the title, please let me know.
How much the world has changed since I did my first ‘check in’for the challenge. Here in South Africa we were about to go into lockdown. We thought it would be for just 21 days, but it continued for 100 days. Like most of the rest of the world, the country is only just beginning to open up.
My reading has continued and so has my writing. Most of all though, I’m so grateful to all of you, my online friends, for being there and being you!
#ARMEDWITABINGOis a light-hearted reading challenge from Kriti Khare & Ariel Joy which I signed up for at the start of this year. Reading is good for writers and I read a lot anyway, so why not? I also set myself a target to read 36 books this year for the2020 Goodreads Reading Challenge.
I’ve enjoyed them all for different reasons, although I have to say that Moby Dick was pretty hard going! If you’re interested you can read all of my short and snappy reviews here onGoodreads.
And now… back to the writing! I’m busy with my fourth novel and with the South African lockdown starting at midnight tomorrow for 21 days, I really have no excuse. Of course, I’ll still be keeping up with my little stories and occasional poems on here.
Take care and stay safe wherever you are in the world. At least we can still meet here.
