Happy Holidays

Well, it has been two months since I posted my Goodbye For Now post.  Honestly, I didn't think I would last a week without the urge to come back and post again.  Time has just flown by and I can't believe it has really been two months.

I have been reading - I finished The Witches of East End series by Melissa de la Cruz, am starting the second book in the Under the Never Sky series, Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi and am reading the Secrets of Droon series by Tony Abbott with my son as well as The Vengekeep Prophecies by Brian Farrey. I still have a bathroom book - it is currently Agent of Influence by David Aaron.  I also got in a Christmas read this year  - The Christmas List by Richard Paul Evans.  This one put me at my goal of 100 books for the year.

While I haven't missed the pace that I had set for myself in reviewing ARCs, I have missed posting and being part of the book blogging community.  So where does that leave me?  CHALLENGES!   Now don't laugh.  I know, I know - every year I sign up for challenges - start out going fairly well, then fall off the map.  The difference this year is that I am not reviewing ARCs.  I am reading books that only I choose for me.  So this should let me do pretty good.  So, I think that I have highlighted 30 challenges that I am interested in signing up for.  So now I just need to decide how I am going to categorize them and post about them.

Happy New Year and Happy Reading!

Good to hear from you again.

I'm not good at challenges, though it's because I take them too seriously and feel that I must complete them. That's too much pressure to be putting on myself. I've been doing more choosing of my own reading and find that more enjoyable. Will be looking forward to more posts from you.

Glad you're back!!

I'm not good at challenges either, but I've joined a lot for 2014 and plan on focusing on them instead of review/tour books. I have a few of each scheduled, but mostly plan on reading my own books or ones I get from the library or for my ipod.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Challenges might be just what the doctor ordered for you - good luck with them!
