I finished my 2010 Challenge! I am very excited about this. A month ago, I really didn’t think it would be possible, but I am so glad I did it. It was a huge challenge (for me at least) and I feel really accomplished. It also pushed me to read things I wouldn’t normally pick up on my own, like historical novels (like them, but don’t usually read them) and award winning books that I might have otherwise overlooked.
So now I am gearing up for next year’s challenge. My original plan was to tone it down a bit, but I like challenges, so I have joined a few. My 2011 Challenge will linked under the header all year. Between the British Books Challenge, the Debut Author Challenge, the PaperBackSwap YA Challenge, and my personal TBR challenge, I think I will have my hands full. But in a good way! :)
Oh, and two challenges I forgot to mention above: Nonfiction Challenge, because I really need to read the nonfiction I accumulate, and Pick an Author Challenge. I did that in 2010 with John Green and really enjoyed it, so this year I have picked Melina Marchetta. I have already read one of her books, Jellicoe Road, and loved it, so I’m excited to read everything else!
