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!)

~Challenge Completed~

Hey, I did it! My goal was to read three books and I got in four!

The Napping House is a picture book and I read it while playing games on Facebook.

Unlikely Friendships is non-fiction. 47 short stories of unlikely animal pairings, a snake and a hamster???? Fabulous book if you like animals.

100 Cupboards is a children's book (fourth grade) and while there were a lot of pages, it was a fairly fast read. Book two in the series is out and while I may read it...I haven't ordered it.

Dragongirl is a Pern book. I love Pern and was able to spend most of Saturday reading and finished before going to bed. If you want to try reading the Pern series, don't start with this one! Not only is it layered with past book references, you won't understand most of what goes on. Plus, while I liked it alot, I didn't love it. I'd start with Dragonflight then Dragonsong & Dragonsinger. Those are also my favorites.

I'm glad I joined in the Read-a-Thon, even though this was a busy weekend for me, I don't know if I would have read Dragongirl this year without it. It was in my pile but more as a if-you-have-time kind of thing. Now I can move one of the other titles into that spot :D
