I also participated in 2 challenges at Paperbackswap on the Historical Fiction forum. I finished the 2013 Historical Fiction Challenge there with 24/24 books completed and fell one short on the Historical Mystery Challenge with 7/8.
Overall, not terrible but hopefully I will do better in 2013 because I am participating in a few MORE challenges than I did in 2013. What can I say? I love challenges, and Read-A-Thons, and blog hops.....
So here are the ones for 2013:
HERE. If you're thinking about trying this one mosey on over to Roof Beam Reader and check it out. There's still time!
That is why the Historical Fiction Challenge hosted by Historical Tapestry is perfect for me! This will by far be the easiest challenge I do all year because 95% of what I read is Historical Fiction. I think part of the reason I haven't done this one before is because I was focusing on the challenge aspect but this one is purely to share the good books I'll be reading this year-and because I'm nosy and want to know what good historical fiction everyone else is reading. Seriously, if I fail at this one I am turning in my book nerd card to be hung up on the horrible readers wall of shame.
Bev @ My Reader's Block. This is the first time I am trying this one and I think may have bit off more than I can chew with this one but I'm still going to try!
I'll also be doing a couple reading challenges with the groups I participate in on Goodreads and Paperbackswap so it should be a pretty full year for challenges.
I am really looking forward to all of these. What challenges have you signed up for this year?
