As you can see I didn't finish my own challenge. For shame. Let me hang my head..... Ok I'm back. I think that since I only read 50 books this year, I actually did quite well. The only ones I didn't do were N, Q, V, X, and Z. Not sure how I didn't manage to find and N or a V, but Q, X, and Z are excusable. :) Better luck next year. PS. Sign ups are up for the 2012 A to Z Challenge.

Picture Book Challenge - Level 3 : 24 books (Finished June 6th!)

Current Tally - 27

Mr Brown Can Moo, 1 Moose 20 Mice, Dear Zoo, Star Wars ABC, One Two Buckle My Shoe, Old Hat New Hat, Jamberry, Hop on Pop, Alice in Wonderland, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Romeo and Juliet, The Sea of Bath, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, Are You my Mother?, Eyes & Nose Fingers & Toes, I am a Bunny, Barney's Book of Opposites, Sesame Street Who am I?, Moo Baa LaLaLa, RS' Cars and Trucks From A to Z, Almost Bedtime, On the Track...There and Back, How Many Kisses Do You Want Tonight?, Sharing is Caring, Night Night Blessings, 10 Minutes Til Bedtime

I managed to finish this one back in June. It wasn't surprising since CJ and I read at least two books a night. He's turning into quite a bookworm and it makes me so proud. :)

Eclectic Reader Challenge

  1. Literary Fiction - The Enchantress of Florence
  2. Crime/Mystery Fiction - Aurelia by Anne Osterlund (there was a mystery in it, so it counts!)
  3. Romantic Fiction : The Garden Intrigue by Lauren Willig
  4. Historical Fiction : Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn
  5. Young Adult : If I Have a Wicked Stepmother, Where is My Prince?
  6. Fantasy : The Jinx
  7. Science Fiction - A Kingdom's Possession by Nicole Persun
  8. Non Fiction : Death By Petticoat
  9. Horror : The Darkening Dream
  10. Thriller /Suspense - Rebel Angels 
  11. Classic : The Magician's Nephew
  12. Your favourite genre - Historical Fiction : The Last Boleyn 
This one was a toughie, I'll admit. I didn't think I was going to be able to finish it, but I did. I just don't like crime/mystery fiction all that much, so it was hard for me to find one. But I snuck one in there at the last second. So woohoo. 

I also just barely finished 50 books this year. That is crazy for me. I'm more like a 75 books per year kind of gal. I don't even have excuses like I read Game of Thrones or big books like that again. I did re-read the Gemma Doyle Trilogy, but those aren't too crazy long. 

2012 Reading Challenge

2012 Reading Challenge
Lindsey has completed her goal of reading 50 books in 2012!

I actually signed up for about 5 more challenges, but as the year went on, it became quite obvious I wasn't going to finish them, so I just deleted them from my challenge page. Oh well. I do have my 2013 challenges ready to go. That page will be up soon.
