Reading Challenges 2010 - Wrap-Up

Well...I failed at all of my reading challenge goals for 2010. -hangs head in shame-

But at the same time I guess it's really not that big of a deal. I definitely read over 100 library books in story time, and I even read a couple more teen books than I officially "counted". My problem was that I couldn't bring myself to count them towards a reading challenge if I didn't review them (there's that perfectionist in me again...), since that was my whole reason for trying out the reading challenges - to find great (or not so great) books to review on my blog.

My life was pretty crazy for most of 2010. It had its ups and downs (thankfully more ups than downs) and I was a full time student and employee the whole year through. With any luck I'll pass the five classes I'm taking now and have at least the summer off to do whatever I want - like read.

All that being said, I'm not letting last years failures stop me from at least signing up for more reading challenges this year! I've managed to narrow my choices down to two challenges (plus the first one I am hosting myself), so look for that post soon-ish. I'm even going to try hosting my own reading challenge as long as the awesome graphic designer that is the love of my life can make me a button for it tomorrow.

In the meantime, here's what I did manage to officially accomplish last year (if you're interested in reading past reviews, I have a handy link to my archives in my navbar) :

Completed 4/12 Challenges 

Read & Reviewed 21/100 Books

Read & Reviewed 4/12 Books


  1. Sounds like you had a busy 2010!
    Sometimes life gets in the way of reading and reviewing books!
    Books For Company

  2. It does. I think I was still able to read a decent amount (as far as children's books go), but the reviewing was DEFINITELY cut back.

  3. BlueHost is one of the best hosting company with plans for any hosting requirements.
