05/27/15 - 2015 Reading Challenge Update


Hello!
Just checking in and updating my "2015 Reading Challenge" log.
Here's a reminder of what the challenge looks like:

 
 Here's a reminder of list of  what I've already blogged about reading: 
  • A book with more than 500 pages:  "Allegiant"
  • A book that became a movie:  "The Silver Linings Playbook"
  • A book with a number in the title:  "Three Wishes"
  • A funny Book:  "Seriously...I'm Kidding" 
  • A book by a female Author:  "Girls in Trouble"
  • A popular author's first book: "Still Alice" 
  • A memoir:  "Yes, Please"
  • A book that is set in high school: "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"
  • A book by an Author you never read before: "The Fault In Our Stars"





  • And here is my updated info:

    • A book based on a true story: "Wild" (currently struggling to read)
    • A book published this year: "Before I Go"
    • A book of short stories: "Four" - I read this earlier in the year but I didn't even realize that it qualified for this category! Thanks to a fellow blogger/friend who is also doing this challenge and used the same book for this category, I now know and can check another off my list!
    • "Unbearable Lightness - A Story of Loss and Gain"  - This technically fits in the "true story" category but since I have already read it before, I think using it for any of the categories of the challenge would be cheating.  BUT...I did read it (again) so I want it to count in my total number of books read in 2015 therefore I am making up a category ---- "a book you've already read but liked enough to read again"  I could actually do this with a lot of books but I can only use each category, even my made up category, once.
    So instead of having read 50 books by the time this challenge is completed, IF I complete it, I will have read 51 books.

    Total books for 2015 (as of today) = 13

    BTW - In case you can't tell, the names of the books are actually links to the books information on Amazon. I did this in the event that you may want to learn more about the book.
