I was trying not so hard to stay away from signing up for challenges. Guess what? I signed up. I guess you can say it’s Novel Challenge fault for listing them all. Yeah, that works. I really did try to keep it under control and doable this year.
Here are my 2012 Challenges…… Click on any of the badges to go to the challenge site and sign up.
This baby was created just for me! Actually not but it should have been. There is nothing I love more than a good serial killer be it fiction or non fiction. Hmmmm, makes me sound like a bit of an off person doesn’t it? Wanna join us?
I am choosing Level 3 =Read 6 mammoths!
Mystery and Suspense Challenge
This challenge is a great one and I did pretty good last year. Then life jumped up and bit my badorkus and I fell off the edge of the world. (That sounds better than screwed up doesn’t it?) I am jumping in again this year.
That’s all, that’s enough and I do believe it’s all doable! Good luck to me. I will update my progress in the CHALLENGES 2012 pages at the top of my blog.
What challenges roped you in for 2012?
Welcome to my first post in my new home! Due to Blogger hating me and not letting me into my blog or posting my scheduled reviews I have left them in the dust. I have heard nothing but good things about WP so I moved over here. It is a little confusing for me so please bear with me while I go through the learning curve and feel free to point out anything that I am not doing that I should be doing, etc.
I sent a newsletter to all of my followers from Blogger inviting them to join me here and I hope they do. I am also joining in the Follow Friday Blog Hop. This is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Run on over to their blogs and check out the easy rules and join us. One of the things this meme does is ask a weekly question. This weeks question is:
Q: When you’ve read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it..?)
Well I didn’t do too horrible this time around but I didn’t finish as much as I hoped to. Did I tell you that I have a new grandbaby? Oh yes, pictures will be coming, thank you for asking.
The Magdalena Curse by F.G. Cottman
This is a Suspense Magazine review book and I really liked it. I will be having a giveaway for my copy soon.
Seed by Ania Ahlborn
This was an Amazon $.99 book that caught my eye and had good ratings. It was very good. A bit predictable at times but still a creepy read. Review to come.
I won two books:
I had tons of fun visiting blogs and trying to participate in the mini-challenges. I have to say, book bloggers are good, fun people! Thanks to everyone who took part of the read-a-thon, hosted giveaways and mini-challenges!
How was your read-a-thon?
