I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Reading Challenge - Color Coded

The Color Coded Reading Challenge
January 1 thru December 31
Hosted by Bev at My Reader's Block

Bev noticed an early trend her reading, decided to run with it and came up with a challenge for the rest of us. She wants us to join her in reading nine different books this year with a color in the title. Seven specific colors plus one other and a word that implies color, such as rainbow or plaid.

I have no idea how I'm going to do on this one, there aren't many color related books on my TBR list, but here goes. ummm, still need a "brown"...

1. Blue: Forever Blue by Suzanne Brockmann
2. Red: Red in the Flower Bed by Andrea Nepa
3. Yellow: Yellow Moon by Jewell Parker Rhodes
4. Green: Being a Green Mother by Piers Anthony
5. Brown: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
by Bill Martin Jr & Eric Carle

6. Black: Black Swan by Willa Okati
7. White: White Sleeper by David R. Fett & Stephen Langford
8. any other color: The Man with the Golden Gun by Ian Fleming
9. implies color: Repairing Rainbows by Lynda Fishman

Not bad, two down, seven to go and only one more to find. Four or five books are for review and two are re-reads (years ago).
6-21: Four read (one was a review book!). Three planned (two are review books!) and one still to find (How Now Brown Cow?)
6-28: I've found all nine titles, with alternates on some. Brown's planned title was The Fall of Maggie Brown but I was cleaning out the closet and found a box of children's books :D The three colors left are all review books and one MUST be reviewed on 8-25.

9-8: WooHoo! Only one more title to read. Of the 8 books read so far, 4 of them have been, or in the process of being, reviewed!
