Challenges Completed (1)

  • YA — Another 12 books off my list!  This will definitely be making an appearance for next year, but I’m also thinking of adding a Children’s fiction challenge.


I had scheduled a wonderful readathon with Bout of Books and I had hoped to get through a huge stack of books.  Life had other plans.  My medical issues took all of the strength and motivation from me.  I just didn’t get as much read as I wanted, but I think my numbers are still respectable.  Plus, I knocked out some Shakespeare right at the end of the month.

Next Month’s TBR — So many books as the year is winding down.  My top priorities…

  • Harry Potter 7
  • A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn
  • This Book is Overdue
  • Teachers Matter
  • The Haunts of San Jose
  • The Maiden’s Hand by Susan Wiggs
  • At the Queen’s Summons by Susan Wiggs
  • The Princess and the Bear by Mette Ivie Harrison
  • Shakespeare (lots of him)
