End of the Year Challenges Wrap-Up

I had a lot of fun participating in challenges during the 2010 year. It made me see what genres I like to read and helped me discover new ones. Here are the challenges in which I participated and how I did overall.

1. Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

I signed up in the Fascinated Level to read 6 historical fiction novels, but I superseded that level by actually reading 18 books in this genre! I didn't realize how much I liked reading historical fiction. I think I will sign up for this challenge again in the upcoming year. I just need to work on including my reviews in The Linky of the Challenge page of the host blogger.

2. Time Travel Reading Challenge

I was really excited about this one because I really LOVE time travel. I signed up to read 3 books in this challenge and again I read more. I ended up reading 4 books, however they were middle grade and YA. Next year, I want to focus more on adult time travel books.

3. 100+ Reading Challenge

I finished this challenge with a total of 103 books read! I wasn't sure if I was actually going to be able to finish it, but then I realized that I read a whole lot more than 100 books because there are so many books I read to my kids that I actually do not list or review. You can read any of my reviews here: Books Read in 2010

Will I join more challenges in the upcoming year? Yes! BUT, I made a promise to myself that I would read more books for pleasure rather than review. Here are three new challenges I'd like to join:

The Twenty Eleven Reading Challenge

YA Dystopian Reading Challenge

Steampunk Challenge

I will let you know more about these once my posts are up. What challenges are you joining? Let me know because I love new challenges!
