Challenge Update, November

2 Dec

Okay, some progress. It’s minimal-ish. I’m right in the middle of the book that will finish the Historical Fiction challenge so I’m looking forward to being able to call that one DONE before the end of the year.  You can look at my progress at any time on my challenge page.

Books finished in October:

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (4/5)
The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar (4/5)
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri (5/5)
The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver (5/5)

Only two reviews behind! (For now.)

When Are You Reading? Challenge

This is my challenge to read a book from 13 different time periods. You can read about it here. My timeline tracks when my books take place and it’s pretty obvious I’ve been reading a lot of contemporary. And I promise I’ll fill in the last period within the week! I’m over halfway through a book that fits right in and I’m loving it so it’s flying! So pumped.

Where Are You Reading? Challenge

21/50 (+18)
Hosted by Sheila. In the challenge to read a book from every state, I’m not focusing enough on American settings. My map shows some clusters, but I’m trying to spread it out.

Yay for states! I’ve added three states with this months completions: Missouri (Gone Girl), Massachusetts (The Namesake) and Arizona (The Bean Trees). The Space Between Us didn’t add anything because I’d already read a book set in India.
