Everyday Tidbits...

I am having vision issues which are terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.

Winter Reading Challenge Wrap-Up

Karlene hosted the Winter Reading Challenge and it was a blast. I read 33 books. My goal was simply to read as many books as I could manage and to review all of them. I did that.

What I really enjoyed was simply reading. I love to read and this challenge really got me back into the swing of reading just for fun. I've come to know my public library system well too!

I loved the Abrams Daughters series. I tolerated the Twilight series, and I really didn't like Escape or Bridget Jones's Diary. There were a lot of others in between that I really liked and some that I didn't.

Thanks for hosting this Karlene. I can't wait for other reading challenges.

The books I read are as follows (in reverse order) and all have been reviewed here on the book blog:

Escape, Carolyn Jessop
The Revelation, Beverly Lewis
The Prodigal, Beverly Lewis
New Year's Quilt, Jennifer Chiaverini
Christmas Quilt, Jennifer Chiaverini

  1. Holly,

    Thanks so much for participating in the Winter Reading Challenge. What a list! I'm amazed.

    Glad to see you'll be doing the Spring Challenge with Katrina. I'll be getting my list up tomorrow.

    I'll be doing a Summer Challenge starting June 20th. Hope you'll join me again for that one.
