Book Awards Challenge Completed

In anticipation of some new challenges coming up (in particular, Carl V’s Once Upon a Time Challenge III which will start soon), I’ve completed another challenge. My goal for the Book Awards Reading Challenge was to read 10 books from 5 different challenges. Here’s a list of what I read for this challenge. Thanks to Michelle (1 More Chapter) for hosting it.

    Yikes! I still have about six to go before I finish this challenge, but I have until June, right? That will give me some breathing room, I hope. Congratulations on your finished books!

    Thanks, Bellezza. Yes, you’ve got some breathing room. I’m just trying to finish up a few of my challenges before I take on some new ones. I went crazy and signed up for an insane number of different challenges … but I’m enjoying them all!

    Well done. I’m just finished this one too but have been too lazy to write up a post. I loved The Bridge of San Luis Rey.
