2019 was the first year I participated in the Popsugar Challenge. I had planned to complete 25/50 prompts. I completed 33, so was quite pleased with my results. My goal this year is to complete 40/50. I am going to try to complete some of the more difficult ones first so that I will have a better chance at completing them. 7/40 Continue reading “2020 Popsugar Challenge”

20 Books for Christmas Reading Challenge 2019 Final Post

I love reading Christmas stories, so this challenge is right up my alley. The challenge begins Tuesday  October 1, 2019 running through until December 31, 2019.

I chose 20 Christmas stories, some that were new and some that I have had on my TBR for years. I read way more than 20 Christmas stories, but really wanted to read the 20 on this list. Well, I didn’t make it. I was able to read and review 16/20 so, I guess that was not too bad.

2019 Reading Round Up

I am not a person who keeps a lot of stats about my reading. I am also not someone who can remember what books I loved the most to recommend my top ten.

Here is the lowdown on the challenges I participated in with links to the final updates on each. I know there are still 4 days left in 2019, but I don’t think anything will change that much. Here goes: Continue reading “2019 Reading Round Up”

I found this challenge over at The Secret Library Book Blog.  It is hosted byAMY @ PASSAGES TO THE PAST . Click on her site for all the details.

I am hoping to acheive the Ancient History Level which is to read 25 Historical Fiction Books. That is a lot for me, so I shall see how it goes.  I switched to the Prehistoric Level partway through the year and surpassed that goal as well. I am quite happy with how I did. I definitely upped my game in this genre.
