Finished up the 2015 Reading Challenge!
This past year (that sounds funny already!) I participated in the 2015 Reading Challenge, sponsored by Anne at the blog Modern Mrs. Darcy!
There were 10 categories that you were to read a book from, and I finished up the last by the squeak of a day on December 30th! But I finished!!!
Here are the categories and the books I read for them:
Book I've Been Meaning To Read:
Mockingbird by Charles Shield (a biography of Harper Lee)
A Book Published This Year:
Some Luck by Jane Smiley (all the books I read were published this year, lol!)
A Book In A Genre I Usually Don't Read:
The Last Book Ever Written by Jonah Kravant (Science Fiction)
A Book From My Childhood:
The Pokey Puppy by Janette Sebring Lowrey (read to my grandson, Oliver!)
A Book Your Mom Loves:
Last One Home by Debbie Macomber (got it on audiobooks for mom!)
A Book Originally Written In Another Language:
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo (Japanese)
A Book Everyone Has Read But Me:

A Book I Chose Because of the Cover:
A Peach of A Pair by Kim Boykin (gorgeous cover!!)
A Book By A Favorite Author:
