Challenge Updates


5 / 25 books. 20% done!


I have quite a few "Witchy" books in my TBR pile, but I haven't gotten to any of them yet. Can't wait to see this bar start going up!




22 / 24 books. 92% done!

This one has been the easiest one so far. I haven't had any trouble picking up new authors. So many good ones out there!





7 / 15 books. 47% done!

Thankfully I'm a huge Historical fiction fan. YA historical fiction is a bit more popular now than it was back in my teen years. I'm glad about this. Very glad.




4 / 25 books. 16% done!

I've read plenty of mysterious and suspenseful books, but none that I could justify as an actual MYSTERY or SUSPENSE book. So I haven't been counting them.




5/ 10 books. 50% done!

Next week is going to be a bit of a crazy week, dears! It's the week before my wedding so there's a lot of stuff going on. I will be actively posting as much as possible so don't expect me to just disappear!

SUMMER WRAP UP READ-A-THON






Today is the first day for the SUMMER WRAP-UP READ-A-THON hosted by Some Like it Paranormal and In Between Writing and Reading.

There are going to be lots of fun challenges and posts, so keep up!

Today I'm going to post my goals for the read-a-thon. At the end of each post this week I will post my progress and any participation in the mini-challenges.

Let's have fun!

Read-A-Thon Goals


E-Books




That's a lot, I know. I'm giving myself kind of a heavy goal so that I'll push myself to read as much as possible, because next week I won't be reading much at all! I promised Mr. J I'd keep my nose out of a book for the majority of the time!

Until Next Blog,

Read On!

~A.
