Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

New Adult Reading Challenge

New Adult
Reading Challenge

hosted at Ashleyz Wonderland
for more information or to sign up, click here

per Goodreads:
New Adult fiction bridges the gap between Young Adult and Adult genres. It typically features protagonists between the ages of 18 and 30.

The genre tends to focus on issues prevalent in the young adult genre as well as focusing on issues experienced by individuals between the area of childhood and adulthood, such as leaving home for university and getting a job.

New adult is typically considered a subcategory of adult literature rather than young adult literature.

I'm not the target audience for new adult but considering I still read picture books, I figured I'd go for it. There are several levels but I'm going for . . . level 1 . . . and hope to read 1-10 books that fit.

Any format, length is not listed, reviews aren't necessary. Any sub-genre of new adult is acceptable. You can make a list but you don't need to stick to it. You can move up a level but not down. (well, I can't get more down ;-) but maybe I'll move up)

Thanks so much for joining in my challenge. I hope you get a chance to read the Beautiful series by Jamie McGuire. I love that series and she's who started me on NA.
