Books I Gave Up On (1)
Jemima J by Jane Green — I gave it 48 pages and just couldn’t connect with any of the characters. The book was published in 1999 and makes the internet sound like this new wonderful thing. Maybe if I read it in 1999, I would have liked it. In 2012, it just felt dated…
- Graphic Novel Challenge — I loved this one! I signed up for 20 volumes, but I’m sure that I’ll be reading more throughout the rest of the year.
- Support Your Local Library — Easy peasy. I just can’t resist the lure of all the books on the shelves. I really do need to put myself on a library ban and get to my own books (note my abysmal progress on the Mount TBR challenge).
- Vampire Challenge — I originally was going to read Jeanine Frosts books, but found myself rounding out the challenge with the Vampire Academy series. This will definitely be on my list for next year’s challenges.
Loving my progress this month. I knocked out three reading challenges and over 5000 pages. I still need to focus on a few specific challenges, but I’m happy. I also finished three series! I really need to keep up my motivation.
