This was my first full year as a book blogger and I really enjoyed it. I have renewed my love of reading, expanded my never-ending TBR pile, and have a way of keeping track of all the books I read and my feelings on them. I signed up for many challenges in 2011, here's how I did:
GoodReads/Book Chick City's 100 Books in a Year Challenge
I was only able to read 61 books this year.
Book Chick City's Mystery and Suspense Challenge
Close but no cigar, I read 10 out of 12 books.
The Book Vixen's YA of the '80s and '90s Challenge
There was no specific number of books to read for this one, but I read 5, which is good enough for me.
The Unread Reader's Show Me the Free Reading Challenge
This one was a fail. I wanted to read 24 free e-books on Strawberry, but was only able to read 8.
Midnight Book Girl's Read Me Baby, One More Time Challenge
I signed up to re-read 6 books, I read 5 so not so bad.
Romance Book Maven's Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge
Read 8 out of 10 books.
The Ladybug Read's E-Reader Challenge.
I thought I would be reading a ton of books on Strawberry, which is why I signed up to read at least 20 e-books. Due to the fact that I put myself on a book buying ban and got most of my books from the library, I was only able to read 11.
Jamie's Young Adult Reading Challenge
Read 15 out of 20 books
Book Chick City's Summer Romance Challenge
This is the only challenge I completed this year. I read 8 books.
I didn't sign up for as many challenges this year, so hopefully I will be able to complete more of them this year.
