2016 TBR Update #1

So it's been a (long) while since I've done one of these updates, but I'm going to try and do them on Mondays on a regular basis. Not only so you can stay up to date on my reading challenges, but also my TBR progress for the months.

So my January TBR has 9 official books. Out of those, I have completed 0 this week.

I have 11 left to read:
  • A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
  • Byzantium by Stephen R. Lawhead
  • The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling
  • Winter by Marissa Meyer
  • Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty
  • Anne & Henry by Dawn Ius
  • Castle in the Air - Diana Wynne Jones
  • The Sea of Trolls by Nancy Farmer
  • The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
  • Girl on a Wire by Gwenda Bond
I have also read:
  • Red River Vol. 2 by Chie Shinohara (4/5 strawberries)
I am currently reading 4 books:
  • A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
  • Byzantium by Stephen R. Lawhead
  • The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
  • The Sea of Trolls by Nancy Farmer
I have caught up on 0 series, and I have started 0 new series/trilogies/duologies.

So I sort of failed in last year's all-year-round challenge, but this year I'm doing another one just because I can! And I'm doing the 2016 Monthly Keyword Reading Challenge. Click the link to see detailed rules, but essentially each month there are a set of keywords, and I have to choose a book that adheres to one of those keywords in the title. For me, I'm going to try and select more than one keyword, because I like a challenge..

This month's keywords are: 
Crowd, Girl, The, Bad, Soul, Soft
(Girl on a Wire; The Bad Beginning)

FEB: Veil, Kiss, Her, Break, Love, Stars

MAR: Game, Fire, Darkness, School, Like, Change

APR: Far, Life, Stay, One, War, Thorns

MAY: Cure, Trial, Family, Key, Thief, Bend

JUN: Moon, In, Only, Whisper, Sleep, Trap

JUL: Rose, Sun, Clock, Day, Angel, Unto

AUG: Prince, Boy, Glass, Heart, Lost, Now

SEP: Wind, Color, Touch, At, How, Sweet

OCT: Rock, Ghost, Fall, Away, Sky, Storm

NOV: Dream, Holiday, And, Of, Dawn, Beautiful

DEC: End, Promise, Everlasting, Ice, Snow, My

And because I feel like stressing myself out, I'm taking on a second reading challenge. The A-Z Reading Challenge. It's very simple: I have to read a book that begins with a letter from the alphabet, until I've gone through the entire alphabet! So this is my lineup!

A: Ann & Henry - Dawn Ius
B: Bad Beginning, The - Lemony Snicker
C: Castle in the Air - Diana Wynne Jones
G: Girl on a Wire - Gwenda Bond
H: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - J. K. Rowling
L: Lock & Mori - Heather W. Petty
S: Sword of Summer, The - Rick Riordan
W: Winter - Marissa Meyer
