2020 Challenge Update

So, I have one month left to finish up all my challenges. I already met some of them, so that pressure is off, but I am pretty sure I will not accomplish all I set out to do this year. Here goes: Continue reading “2020 Challenge Update”

Christmas Readathon Update: November

I began my Christmas reading in earnest, starting September 1st. My goal for each month is to read or listen to 12 to 15 Christmas books that are on my TBR. In September, I read/listened to  17 of these books. In October, I read/listened to another 19 and in November I only added 13 more to my total. This brings me to 49 Christmas books. Clicking on the cover will take you to my review if I have posted it. If you are looking for some good Christmas reads, check some of these out. If you enjoy audiobooks, most of these were available at my library, on hoopla, KU or audible. Continue reading “Christmas Readathon Update: November”

20 Books for Christmas Reading Challenge #20BooksForChristmas

I love reading Christmas stories, so this challenge is right up my alley. The challenge begins Tuesday  October 1, 2020 running through until December 31, 2020. Head over to Tea & Cake for the Soul to learn how to join in and the rules (which are pretty basic). Just choose 20, or 15 or 10 books that you’d like to read (and hopefully review). They do not have to be Christmas themed, but mine will be. Continue reading “20 Books for Christmas Reading Challenge #20BooksForChristmas”

Christmas Readathon Update – September

I began my Christmas reading in earnest, starting September 1st. My goal for September was to read or listen to 12 to 15 Christmas books that were on my TBR. Well, I surpassed that goal thanks to all the audiobooks I found through my library on Libby, CloudLibrary or Hoopla. Here is the rundown of what I read or listened to this month. I did add one New Year’s story to this list as well. Clicking on the cover will take you to my review. If you are looking for some good Christmas reads, check them out.

A Summer Book-Bingo – Just for Fun! FINAL UPDATE

New Horizons Bingo! - New Horizons Designs

One of my favourite bloggers, Lynne at Fictionophile, created a SUMMER BOOK BINGO. I jumped in and did pretty well. My goal was originally a full card, but I didn’t make that. I did, however, finish over half the card and get 6 lines. Continue reading “A Summer Book-Bingo – Just for Fun! FINAL UPDATE”

New To Me Author (Summer Bingo) Final Post #nasbingo #nas

Book Bingo | Avalon Free Public Library

New-to-Me Author Summer Bingo is hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl and Jessica at Reading with Jessica . The event ran from June 1st through August 31st. I was actually surprised to see how many new to me authors I read on a relatively regular basis.

Jessica and Jana hosted this challenge and posted sprints on their Twitter pages (@ArtsyReaderGirl and @ReadingwJessica). I didn’t do any of them, but I had fun with the challenge anyway. Here is my final post. I thought I might get a full card, but missed out on three squares. Continue reading “New To Me Author (Summer Bingo) Final Post #nasbingo #nas”

20 Books of Summer 2020 Final Update #20BooksOfSummer20

This year, I changed my reading list part way through the challenge. I realized that trying to read nine books from the DI Kim Stone series was not going to happen. I switched it up so that I only had four of them on my list and added some easy summer reads to the list instead. Even g\doing this, I didn’t quite make it. I still have one more to read from the list, so read 19/20. Having said that, I did read over 100 books during the three months of this challenge.
