Thanks for joining my A to Z challenge. That's awesome that you are going to do separate lists for each A to Z challenge. We don't mind duplicates though. :) That's a whole lot of books either way. Good luck on all your challenges!

I am so excited you are participating in my challenge, Kristi! I just put up the January Links post so if/when you get to a book this month, be sure to add it! Then we can each find each other's reviews.

You have some other great challenges going on, too, including a few I missed. I need to see if I can squeeze them in to my schedule!!!

Wow, you have quite a list of challenges there - awesome! I don't think I'll join any of them because I don't work well under pressure but I enjoy watching people do these.
