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 - Seven! Completed

I just finished The Art of the Novella and when I went to tell you, realized that I had missed six others! So, here's a little housekeeping ;)



The Art of the Novella Reading Challenge
August


My original post about the challenge

Quick recap:
read one or more novellas from a specific list


Final List:
The Awakening by Kate Chopin


This was stressful in that I have a bunch of other stuff going on and it is out of my comfort zone. I'm glad I did the challenge, it did whet my appetite for more.

Will I repeat the challenge next year? Not sure it will be repeated but I will keep the list handy.

Romance Reading Challenge
2011


My original post about the challenge

Quick recap:
read and review five romance novels then link them

Final List:
The Christmas Clock
Voice for the Silent
The First Love Cookie Club
The Misfit of Supernatural High
One Weekend


I have no problem reading the required novels. In fact, I LOVE to read romance and have quite a list so far this year. My problem is reviewing the things.

Will I repeat the challenge next year? most likely not.

What's in a Name 4

My original post about the challenge

Quick recap:
read six books that meet specific requirements

Final List:
The First Love Cookie Club
Emeralds and Espionage
Go Small or Go Home
Hawk's Landing
Killer Crab Cakes
Being a Green Mother

I've enjoy this challenge in the past and enjoyed it again this year. One title was a favorite re-read and one was a forgotten re-read. One never would have been purchased (or enjoyed) if not for this challenge

Will I repeat the challenge next year? absolutely

Quick recap:
Eleven more of something during 2011 than 2010. I choose to do 11 more reviews so I had 13 to do during the year.

enjoyed? not so much. I was relieved when I made my decision of what 11 more I was going to do and glad of the kick start to get them completed, but....

Will I repeat the challenge next year? no

These are linked in my mind and as a challenge post

I always join these, or something like them, but this is the first year I've actually completed them.

Reading Challenge Addict
2011

My original post about the challenge

Quick recap:
Join and Complete reading challenges during the year. I was silly and said I'd complete 16 even though I'd never completed that many before. I did it!

Final List:
see original post

I thought I had set myself up to fail this one. I have no problem joining challenge, my problem is completing them! I usually end the year with several that only needed one or two titles.

Will I repeat the challenge next year? Yes but with a smaller number
