Oops! I was supposed to post this yesterday, but I ended up actually having a social life, and totally forgot. So, anyway, how did last month’s challenge go?
Well, I started off really strong, finishing The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife really quickly. Then I got sick, and got a bunch of Netgalley approvals, and all of a sudden I only had a couple days before I was supposed to be finished with The Amber Spyglass! But I prevailed, and just in the nick of time (literally the morning of the 17th) I finished my third choice for last month.
So, hooray! I’m allowed to buy books this month! But I might not, because I actually really, really enjoyed the His Dark Materials series, and it’s making me wonder which other gems I might have hiding on my bookshelves.
For this month, ending November 17, I’m focusing on books that fit in to my other challenge for the year. I’m planning to read:
- Don’t Look Back by Karin Fossum (a book you were supposed to read in school but didn’t)
- Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides (a Pulitzer prize winner)
- Skipped Parts by Tim Sandlin (a book you started but never finished)
I am actually really excited about this month, because I probably would have gone out and purchased a Pulitzer prize winner for this challenge, but I had one gathering dust on my bookshelf this whole time! I’ve saved myself a good $10-15 by just reading books I already own!
I’ll be posting again on November 17 to let you know how the challenge is going.
