    WOW. You not only have a LOT of challenges for yourself this year, but you’ve already made so much progress. I love seeing those series crossed of the list! I’m working on my Seriously Series challenge, too, but not making as much progress as I should (there are just too many books I want to read, lol). Congrats on your progress so far. 🙂

    • Claire (BWB) says:

      Thanks! I enjoy challenges, they force me to branch out more. I also really love challenges and I’d definitely do the Seriously Series challenge again next year!

      I have the same problem as you though, I’ve loaded myself up with so many challenges that there is no way that I can read books that are outside of the challenges, so I did well at first but now I’m slowing down a bit because I’m distracted by the goodies I want to read 😦
