ARC August


I am going to give this a go. I have set myself a goal of reading/listening to 15 ARCs this month. It seems like a lot, but I have about 8 audiobooks that are ARCs so it might be easier than anticipated. Are you interested in this challenge? Visit Read, Sleep, Repeat for more details.

Suggestions Needed

Hello all my wonderful, fellow readers and friends.

If you follow my blog, you know that I have challenged myself this year to complete some challenges which require me to read outside my comfort zone. I am looking for recommendations/suggestions in various areas. If you are a writer, perhaps you have written something that would fit the bill. Here goes, looking for suggestions for: Continue reading “Suggestions Needed”

Pop Sugar Challenge

I have looked and looked at this challenge and never jumped on it because I was pretty sure I would never complete it. Well, maybe I need something to push me out of my comfort zone. I am going to give it a try and see how if I can complete it. My first task is to find out what RPG means. 😃

COYER 2018/2019 Tracking

This challenge is now finished. I read 76/80 that I had hoped to complete. Overall, I am happy with that result.

This is a challenge that I just want to get some of those books off my tablet. It began on December 1st and runs until March 1st. I would love to try and get 80 of those books (ARC, provided by publicity tour, freebies from Amazon) off my tablet, to make room for new ones. Let’s see what i have read:

Genre Book Bingo 2019

This challenge was listed in a Goodreads group that Darinda at  Nightcap Books. belongs to. The goal is to read books to make as many “bingos” as you want. I generated my bingo card here, using the directions provided in the group challenge. This challenge has 24 prompts (genres), and I hope to complete all of them. Below is the list of prompts. After each prompt I will add the book I read. I think this will be the hardest challenge for me as I tend to stick to the same genres. Hopefully this will help me to step out of my comfort zone.

Each challenge will have its own page, but will all be linked to this master page. I will update them at the end of every month. The ones I plan on participating in are: Continue reading “2019 Challenges”
