Despite being busy working full-time, mom to two young boys, running a side business, and just living life, I also make time whenever possible to read. I set a goal at the beginning of the year to read 30 books this year. That equates to 2 1/2 books every month. So far I am slightly ahead of schedule. I found this fun Book Challenge by Erin 6.0 early in April this year and even though I missed the first three months of time to intentionally partake (Jan 1-April 30, 2017), I jumped in anyway. I used only books that have been read in 2017, but was able to make several of them count for the different categories 😉 I got 140 points of a possible 200

5 points: Freebie – Read a book that is at least 200 pages. Thirteen Reasons Why. Very good! Different than the series in many ways.
· 10 points: Read a book that starts with the letter “W”.
· 10 points: Read a book with six words in the title.
So many numbers of words in titles but none of them had 6. Bummer!
· 15 points: Read a book that has a (mostly) green cover.
· 20 points: Read a book with a homonym in the title
Didn’t get this one
· 20 points: Read a book by your favorite author. I absolutely loved The Nightengale and have read several others by Kristin Hannah. Chose this one for the challenge.
· 25 points:
Read a book set in the city/town/state/territory/county/province where you live. I found a list that has books grouped by the State they are set within. The Shoemaker’s Wife
was on the list for Minnesota and was also on my TBR list, so I gave it go. Loved it!! Historical fiction. It also took place in Italy and then later the Iron Range of MN.
· 30 points: Read a “Rory Gilmore” book. The character of Rory from the Gilmore Girls was shown reading over 300 different books throughout the series.
I’ve read 59 of the books on this list but didn’t read any since Jan 1st.
· 30 points: Read a book from a genre that you’ve never read (or rarely read.) This is a ROMANCE novel, which I did not realize until I started reading it. I have no problem with romance novels, but it’s been YEARS since I’ve read one. I prefer books with depth and substance. This wasn’t the type of romance that had me quivering with passion or anything, it was actually quite boring but I had time to kill and limited ebooks to read when I got sick with the Flu back in March.
· 35 points: Read a book with time travel. This was one of the most interesting books I read so far this year!! The characters use a machine to travel to parallel universes, with a feel very much like time-travel. I loved it! And I am not at all a sci-fi girl.
