October Challenge Wrap Up

Wrap Up

I went a bit nuts this year with challenges; I hope I can accomplish them all. The only one I'm not tracking is my goodreads reading challenge; all the rest I'll include in my monthly wrap up post.
Grab a drink, get comfy, and get ready!

For this month, November, there are 3 challenges that I'm taking part in: the 30 Day Blog Ahead challenge, the Month of Giving Thanks, and NetGalley November. For NetGalley November, I'm aiming for the medium level of 5-10 books. I have more than 10 but I won't get to them all.

A decent month for my challenges. Last month at least half the books I read didn't fit into any of the challenges. Next year, I'm going to cut back on the year-long challenges and focus on the limited time ones such as Clean Out Your Ereader and Ho Ho Ho Read-A-Thon. 

Thanks for visiting :)


  1. I have completed all but my Witch challenge by Melissa. I need two more and should tackle that by year end. You my friend are doing awesome! You know what I forget to do..visit the hosts and link up what I have done..oh well. I do it for the challenge.

    1. I tend to forget to link up also but that's okay. Like you, I do it for the challenge. :)

  2. Woots for finishing the erotic romance challenge! That's awesome! Whoa you've got a lot going on in November. Can't wait to see it all :D
