Reading Challenges: Progress halfway through the year

June is over, we are half-way through the year now- I thought I'd check up on my progress through my reading challenges.  Links take you to my reviews.
I signed up for 5 reading challenges this year:

The Vampire Challenge hosted by Parajunkee
Read 20 books with a vampire as a main character.

4 / 20 books. 20% done!

I'm not doing very well at this so far, but I still really want to read the Morganville Vampires series, so maybe I will catch up!

Out For Blood by Alyxandra Harvey
Afterlife by Claudia Gray
Defiance by Lili St.Crow
Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel

The Shifter Challenge hosted by Parajunkee
Read 20 books with a werewolf or shifter as the main character.

6 / 20 books. 30% done!

Hmm... I'm not doing very well at this one either, but at some point I want to read the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, and the Shifter series by Rachel Vincent. I really need to get cracking on these if I want to complete the challenge!

Raised By Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
The Lost Saint by Bree Despain
Defiance by Lili St.Crow
The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong
Trial By Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

The Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren.

Ok- at least I'm nearly there with at least one of them! There have been some absolutely stunning debut novels this year. This is what I've read for this challenge so far-

9 / 12 books. 75% done!

I get most of the books I read through the library, however, I challenged myself to read at least one book a month on the kindle. I'm actually ahead on this challenge, and there are more books to come!

A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn
Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

I've still got a way to go, but it could still be achievable! However, at the end of the day, I read for fun and I only read what what I want and when I want. If I don't manage to complete any of these challenges it won't be the end of the world!
