Since reading is my life right now, well during my free time anyway, I am back to update you on my progress.
As always I will share the list that is "The Reading Challenge":
And now for my updates:
I want to say a little bit about this last book... it was written by Stephenie Meyer the author who wrote the "Twilight"series... I LOVED the "Twilight" Series (Hey! Don't judge! LOL). I bought "The Host" when it first came out, in 2008, and could not get into it! To be honest, I just didn't understand it! It has a sci-fi vibe and I am not into sci-fi. So I shoved it under my bed never to see the light of day again (or so I thought). Then I watched the movie in 2013 and although the movie wasn't all that great, it gave me more of an understanding of what was going on. So when this challenge category came up, I decided to give the book another chance. I'm glad I did! Although I wouldn't place on my list of "Best Books I've Ever Read" I did enjoy reading it. The only problem I had is it was LONG (60 chapters, 619 pages)! I felt like, despite that I enjoyed reading it, I'd never be finished w/ it!
BTW I was 'chatting' w/ a fellow blogger who is also taking on this challenge and we both agreed that some of these categories are boring so we probably wont get to them all.
Maybe if I had started sooner I would have made myself do it, but seeing as I started the challenge late in the year, and am therefore already behind, I plan on working on the categories that interest me first and IF I have time go back to the others.
After all this is suppose to be a fun challenge, right?
RIGHT! And it definitely is!
