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!)

The Purrfect Reading Challenge

The Purrfect
Reading Challenge

hosted at Socrates' Book Reviews

for more information and to sign up, click here

This one is all about cat mysteries! There are several levels and I'm going for purring, I hope to read 1-10 books. If I re-read all of The Cat Who books, I could go for catnip!


1. Any book read for this challenge has to be a mystery and have a cat that plays a major role in the book.

2. You may make a list of books at the beginning of the challenge or you can just list them as you find them.

3. Book titles may be swapped out at anytime for those who make a list in advance.

4. Crossovers with other challenges are permitted and encouraged.

5. You don't have to have a blog or write a review, but you can if you want to.
 If you don't have a blog, just post in the comment section that you'd like to join. You can post your books in there. I also have a Cat Mystery group on Goodreads and you can join over there. The link is
6. Books can be in any format of your choice (print, audio, ebooks)
7. To sign up, choose one of the levels from the above list and use the Mister Linky. There will be links for reviews and wrap posts later.
Enjoy and have fun!
