It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Reading Challenge - The Art of the Novella

The Art of the Novella Reading Challenge
Hosted at Melville House Publishing

This is nuts. I don't need another challenge. But, novellas are short so just maybe I'll be able to finish a couple. Melville House Publishing has a collection of 42 titles of novellas and Frances at Nonsuch Book blog will be reading, and reviewing, all of them during August. That's right, 42 titles in 31 days!

Thankfully, there is a smaller level for I do not believe I could do this.

Curious – Read 1 novella
Fascinated — Read 3 novellas
Captivated – Read 6 novellas
Passionate — Read 9 novellas
Mesmerized – Read 15 novellas
Obsessed – Read 21 novellas
Fanatical – Read 27 novellas
Unstoppable — Read 33 novellas
Bibliomaniac — Read all 42 novellas

Because I'm trying to have a life beyond books, I'm going to choose.....
and hope it will wet my appetite for more.

Head over to Moby Lives and join us.

list of titles

I'm thinking of The Man Would Be King or The Hound of the Baskervilles. Both would be new reads {blush}

The Awakening by Kate Chopin
