January feels like it flew by this year. We’re almost done with the first month of the 2024 Read Harder Challenge! Theoretically, you should be just about done with your second task in order to stay on track to finish all 24 tasks by the end of the year. Of course, there’s no requirement you have to keep the same pace all year.

Regardless of whether they’re related to the challenge, though, I want to get your reading updates! What are you reading right now? What was the last book you finished? And what’s next up on your TBR? Let’s chat in the comments!

If you want to signal your bookishness to other readers in the wild, check out the Read Harder and Book Riot merch at the Book Riot Bonfire shop, including hoodies, shirts, mugs, tote bags, and more!

Here’s what I’ve been reading lately, my progress through the Read Harder Challenge, and a picture of the mascot of this year’s Read Harder Challenge, my dog Scrappy.
