I read a total of 18 books in all. Here is a link to my original post.
Katrina listed some specific questions she thought would be fun for us to answer about the challenge:
- Did you finish all the books you planned to read? Yes, I finished all 12 I had planned to read plus 6 more!!
- Did you think the challenge helped you read more? Yes, I read more than I thought I would, and I also read a few that were outside of my normal reading genres.
- What was your favorite book you read this spring? The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield.
- What was your least favorite? Someone to Love by Jude Deveraux.
- Did you discover any new authors or genres that you now love? Yes, I discovered Iris Johansen and the genre of murder mysteries. I absolutely loved The Face of Deception and can't wait to get into the rest of the series by her.
- What did you learn about your reading habits and interests? I learned through several of my reading groups that you don't have to finish a book that you don't like. And that it is okay to start more than one book at a time. I love this new freedom as now I can put a book down, start another one that interests me, and then go back to the other book when I want to. I was really regimented in my reading.
- Are you interested in "Fall Reading Challenge?" Definitely, YES!!!
