Reading Challenges



Ok, I said I wasn't going to do this.  Last year I said I was only going to join one reading challenge and I did -- the 2014 Goodreads Reading Challenge.  I am only two short of my goal and I think I will make it -- maybe.

However, I am really into mysteries these days and I happened upon two challenges that I find interesting.  One I learned of from JLSHall's blog.  It is the Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge hosted by Amy at a-bookish-girl.com.







This should work right into my reading preferences these days.  The other is Cruising Thru The Cozies --http://socratesbookreviews.blogspot.com.






 I think I will make more of an effort this year to read some of the modern Welsh literature for the Welsh Literature group.  I joined this group ages ago and have never really participated so I think I will have to take a closer look at this one in 2015.





 I will, of course, continue with the 2015 Goodreads Reading Challenge because that is what keeps me reading.

I have been looking for a good "series" challenge but so far I haven't found one so I will just list those books on the Goodreads list.

It is hard to believe that we are gearing up for another year -- time flies when you are reading good books!

Editing because I found another challenge for series books -- it is Finishing the Series also hosted by socratesbookreviews.blospot.com.





Ok, done now.

Every year I say "no more challenges" -- but of course, I always back down. I do think they make me read more, though, so I guess that's OK. Yeah, I've been considering the Cozies challenge, too. I love cozy mysteries, but haven't read many of them lately, so maybe I'll think a little more about that one.

Welcome to the cozy and series challenges! I hope you have fun!

(Like you, I'm always saying no more challenges but then I go ahead and join more.)

Amy -- thank you, I am looking forward to it.

Yvonne -- thank you -- I am really into cozy mysteries and I seem to love series books so this should work well for me.

Joanie - yeah, I know but they are sort of fun. The cozy mysteries are fun -- the Agatha Raisin ones are really good as are the Aunt Dimity. I have also listened to some Hammish MacBeth on audio. All good.
