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:

  1. Did you finish all the books you planned to read? Yes, I finished all 12 I had planned to read plus 6 more!!
  2. 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.
  3. What was your favorite book you read this spring? The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield.
  4. What was your least favorite? Someone to Love by Jude Deveraux.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Are you interested in "Fall Reading Challenge?" Definitely, YES!!!

Thanks you so much Katrina for hosting this great challenge!!!

Great job on the reading! I love the "Eve" books by Iris too! I am going to have to add The Thirteenth Tale, so many people recommend it.
