Challenge Update, December

1 Jan

I’ll post a year-in-review soon, but it will be different from this one. With this, I want to focus on my challenges only. And hey, I did alright. I finished another challenge (win) and made progress on the one I didn’t expect to finish. Good overall.  You can look at my progress at any time on my challenge page.

Books finished in December:

These Is My Words by Nancy E. Turner (4/5)
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett (5/5)
Paper Towns by John Green (3/5)
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood (4/5)
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (5/5)
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce (2/5)
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (5/5)

I owe you a few reviews in the new year.

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 you can see that it’s filled in. I’m done! I’m excited to have finished this challenge. I don’t think I’ll write a reflection about doing it, but I enjoyed this challenge. I love historical fiction. I’m hosting it again next year so if you want to do a great historical fiction challenge, go ahead and read all about it.

Where Are You Reading? Challenge

23/50 (+18)
Hosted by Sheila. In the challenge to read a book from every state, I didn’t even make it half way. My map is up to date and I’d never realized how many books take place in New England, California, and the UK. This has made me appreciate unique settings and I get excited when books are set in my home state of Michigan.

I added two states this month but no countries. I got Florida (Paper Towns) and Oklahoma (Ready Player One).
