One Month Update: 4th Quarter Challenge

Its been a month since I posted the Bookworm Bitches 4th Quarter Challenge. And a month since I posted anything. October is always busy for me. Lots of Halloween orders . My free month of Kindle Unlimited went to waste.  I think I read one or two books. Neither book was from this list. 😦

Here’s a quick update..

1. Read the 17th oldest book on your TBR List

~~~~ The Perfect Neighbors by Sarah Pekkanen ***

2. Read a book by an author you love or an author you read within 2018
~~~~The Prelude of Ella and Micha(I love Jessica Sorensen) done.

3. Read a book published in the same year you joined Goodreads

~~~~(2012) The Secret of Ella and Micha. (I still might read A Walk Across the Sun for this challenge)

4. Read a book by an author you’ve never read before

~~~~ Say You’re Sorry( Morgan Dane #1)  by Melinda Leigh *** ( Changed from the Drowned Girls) 

5. Read a book set around a holiday or has a holiday themed cover

~~~~ Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich

6. Read a book with a Orange cover

~~~~ Wicked Charms by Janet Evanovich

7. Read the next book in a series or start a new series

~~~~ You Suck by Christopher Moore. ***

8. Catch up on a Bookworm Bitches selection or read a book you have been meaning to read for a long time

~~~~ What Alice Forgot or Little Fire Everywhere.

Reviews coming soon: Once I’m done with the Ella and Micha series ( The Secret ) I may do a review. I’m done with the Lizzy & Diesel series by Janet Evanovich ( Wicked Appetite, Wicked Business, Wicked Charms) so a review of the books is in the works. There doesn’t seem to be a 4th book coming out. Which is odd because the series is based on the 7 deadly sins. 

Whats Next: Little Fires Everywhere . I started it on audio during the summer. Didn’t like it. I found myself not paying attention. So I will be picking it up at the library this week since its available. I plan to save the Stephanie Plum series (by Janet Evanovich) until December. Book 8.5 is my #5 .

****************************************************

All set and ready to go except for number 7. For the Hooked on Books Fall read a thon my theme is series. So I can start or continue any one of the books on my list. 🙂

As you can see Ive already completed #2 🙂 It was a great little intro to Ella and Micha. ❤

I’m going to start reading The Drowned girls this weekend. Its a thick book. 524 pages. I borrowed it from the library and its due on the 15th but I can renew it 2 more times.. I think thats an extra month . It wont take me that long to read. It is on kindle unlimited, along with the other two books. I can’t get The Lullaby Girls from the library since they don’t have it so my free kindle unlimited subscription this month will come in handy 🙂

I have until December 31 to complete this challenge .

If you’ve read any of these books please let me know.

Autumn Reading List

Confession: Goodreads is like porn to me …( I dont watch porn , I’m just saying..lol ) . Books have been my new love. I still love yarn, I would rather read more. I will post new projects soon.

I am in a group called Hooked On Books on Goodreads. Its mainly read a thon challenges, 24 hr, weekend, week long and seasonal. Summer has ended ( last week ) and I have already finished one book in to my Autumn reading list.

I finished the summer with 29 books 🙂 Gotta love the library.  I fell in love with so many books and so many characters. More on them later so I can gather my thoughts. I am still a wreck from reading Me before You! ( I never cried so much!!)

On with the list… A good chunk of my summer reads were suspense/thriller. So this season I want books that are  light, with some humor and romance that wont make me cry for 200 pages. (Yup, thats what Me before You did to me…lol)

My Writings

What is your favorite fairy tale and why?

The theme of the next few posts are Tales.

Today’s writing prompt is: What is your favorite fairy tale and why?

I don’t want to be corny and say the Little Mermaid, Snow White, or Cinderella. I had to look up a list of fairy tales to refresh my memory . A few I remember , The Princess and the Pea, Thumbelina, Hansel and Gretel , Rumpelstiltskin( not to be confused with the character on Once Upon a Time, a show I love. He also played Belle’s Beast, and Captain Hook’s Crocodile.)

Also A Christmas Carol was on the fairy tale list. A story I love. A movie I watch every year around Christmas. I love the characters in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland but not much of the story. While the Princess and the Pea and Thumbelina are cute, Hansel and Gretel is a bit dark, and Rumpelstiltskin makes me smirk at the end but the one I love most is Snow White and Rose Red . 

I remember reading it as a child.  I remember liking the story because no one got hurt , except the dwarf. ( but he deserved it)  And both girls were happy. They didn’t have to compete against each other.  As a little girl I wanted the little girls in my story books to be happy.

Crochet A Longs, Good Ideas, Sharing my life

25 in five : Yarn addition

I recently saw a reading challenge called #25infive on instagram. The participants read what they can for 25 hours in 5 days.

My yarn obsessed brain got to thinking about how I can use this with my yarn balls. I still have a ton. Here is what I was thinking , use 25 balls of yarn , any size, any weight, in 5 days. Make whatever I want.

Its Friday so I will take the weekend to look through my stash and pick my 25 and post again on monday, day 1.

This could be a fun monthly crochet/knit/loom a long 🙂

If you play along , leave your post link in the comments.
