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!)

2022 The Purrfect Reading Challenge

The Purrfect 

Reading Challenge


hosted by Yvonne at Socrates' Book Reviews

To sign up: click here


This challenge is all about reading mysteries that have cats as the main characters. I'm hoping to unpack my Cat Who series and re-read it this year. Of course this isn't the only series of cat mysteries I have and if I can put my laptop down long enough I could be covered in catnip!

There are other rules and samples of books/series on the sign up page.

I'm going for Purring and hope to read 1 - 10 cat mystery books this year.

Dipping my toes back in the water ....

because fanfiction still has me wrapped up tight.

All my reasons/excuses for delaying any type of decision is gone. My husband is working from home. My son has moved out. My parents are dead... yeah, still hurts to say that one.

There is a door on the room my husband works in, also on our bedroom door. There really is no reason not to put in an exercise video. Our gym is open again! Although the hours are different so I have to factor that in.

The donation centers are opening back up but I don't know if they're taking books yet as the stopped for a while.

The new year can be a time of expectations and reflections so here goes.

The year is too long, let's start with January.

January goals - 4 non-challenge posts. 4 books. Do 8 exercise videos. Figure out planner. Work on declutter goals. And the fun part, find/start reading challenges! I should have done this starting in October or November but December was sneaky. It comes from not having to know the date every day.

Good health to you and yours,

Gina, a book dragon ... someone let me know if you get a new email every time I edit!

Challenges posted to check out. Go through later and pick some/all!

Self Explainatory ;-)


Happy New Year to you and yours. I'm slowly coming back, I've got to relearn how to post! I have plans but fanfiction is still an addiction.
