Wrap Up for November’s TBR and Beyond Challenge “Bad Boys, Bad Boys”

 

Somehow, I was able to move books around that I read and finished two ropes for our challenge.  I honestly thought I would maybe fill one, so I’m pleasantly surprised.

The November Challenge was pretty easy.  We had prompts to follow a rope up to a “Bad Boy”.   I had to stretch a couple a bit, but I think they all fit ok.

October 2019 Update On My Yearly Challenges

 

I honestly cannot believe it’s November.  I probably say this every month, but time just flies.  I’m doing well on my challenges and should complete the last one this month.  I hope to join in more next year and maybe increase my goals.

September 2019 Yearly Challenge Updates

 

I’m still horrible with updating these on the pages they’re supposed to be on, but I am remembering to write them down each month.  So I guess that’s something.  I’ve already met most of my goals, but not all.

Wrap Up For TBR and Beyond’s September 2019 Challenge

 

Just a quick update on how I did with September’s challenge.  When this was first announced, I had a lot of arcs to read, so I was thinking I would only get 3 of the 5 done.  But somehow I was able to fit 5 of my books into the categories.
