So, I stumbled across a few reading challenges that I just had to participate in–even if a quarter of the year is almost over. 🙂
The first is the Classics Challenge over at Stiletto Storytime’s blog. You have to read anywhere from 5-40 classics from Jan.1-Dec. 31. I chose the easier “Bachelor’s Degree” level–10 classics between now and the end of the year. Classics have been harder for me to read just because of how many of them are written (despite the fact I was an English major…heh). I may end up going to the “Master’s” level if I finish before the end of the year, but for now I’ll stick with 10 that I’ve chosen…and that may change as the year goes on (check my tab at the top if you’re curious).
And there’s one other challenge I simply had to sign up for: Historical Fiction Reading Challenge! How could I miss that?! Most of the books I read are historical in some way (fantasy, YA or traditional) and I’ve already read two this year (though not counting them on my list). I signed up for the highest level on that one: Severe Bookaholism, 20 books. I’m pretty sure I can hit that before the end, or at least make a good effort!
Are you participating in any reading challenges this year? It’s not too late to sign up!

I’m always so random on what I read so I don’t dare to do a challenge, but I like the books you picked out! For a historical, I am now read “A Curse as Dark as Gold” by Elizabeth Bunce. It has a fantasy element to it, but it is so subtle. Happy reading!
Thanks for joining the Classics Challenge. I can’t wait to see which books everyone decides are “classics” for them. Good Luck and Happy Reading!
