Spring Break Read-A-Thon Wrap-up

If you missed my last week's post, I announced a seven day read-a-thon over my spring break this past week from Saturday to Friday. My main goal was to read seven books, and my secondary hope was to read 7 books I already owned. I almost succeeded in one of those. I ended up not … Continue reading Spring Break Read-A-Thon Wrap-up

Book Challenges Wrap-Up 2019

This year I tried to do something new with my reading, and do a few year-long book challenges. I also attempted to set some of my own personal reading goals, some of which I succeeded and others I sadly failed.

I blame Thanksgiving and sickness.  I started Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky first, probably because I thought it would be the most challenging. And I'm currently only 170 pages out of 521. That's pretty … Continue reading 5 Weeks, 5 Tomes: Week 1 Update

Harry Potter 30 Question Challenge (Part 1)

I discovered this 30 Day challenge on Pinterest a while ago, and since it's Halloween and the Harry Potter world is definitely a great series for this time of year, I thought it would be fun to do for Spooktober. Originally, I was thinking of doing daily posts to it like I did last month … Continue reading Harry Potter 30 Question Challenge (Part 1)
