Because Reading and Fantasy is More Fun


My Official 2015 Reading Assignment Challenge Summary Post



The link above will take you to my full list and official summary post.


Again, just because I can, I'm doing a progress summary of October by itself... and also because I've got some ramblings.


First off, here are the books I read for October, which are also listed in my summary post:

A Summary

October was supposed to be a better month in my bookish life, and to be honest, things were going quite well.  I had even specifically taken a few extra days off so that I could catch up on some Real Life errands and tasks and then spend a full day for myself to make up for that 24 Hour Readathon I didn't quite get to participate in for family reasons.


I had already finished a good portion of my Reading Assignment books for October and ended up dragging out the fourth Reading Assignment book because I wasn't in a hurry to finish it and because it wasn't all that exciting.


And then, as you can see above, on a whim I decided to utilize one of my 4 Extra Credits that I'd been saving up.  It's nearing the end of the year, so, why not, right?  So, because my reading mood dictated it, I picked up Richard Castle's Raging Heat and started reading it with hopes that I could finish it before the month was over.


I almost didn't make it, but my anal retentiveness wouldn't allow me to separate the book into two separate months and so I trudged along.  Of course, Raging Heat was NOT a difficult book to read and so it's not like there was a lot of forcing going on.


Nonetheless, I am now one extra book ahead of schedule, with 3 Extra Credits left to use, of which I may or may not use again for November.  In which case I will only have two books left to read in December, and 2 Extra Credits to utilize, plus two more books to add to my December Reading Assignment list.



A Forecast

These are the books I plan to be reading for the month of November:

1.  Skylark by Meagan Spooner

2.  Shadowlark by Meagan Spooner

3.  Lark Ascending by Meagan Spooner




I haven't quite chosen a fourth book for November yet.  I'm wavering between Allegiant by Veronica Roth, or Taste Test by Kelly Fiore.  With only four other official Reading Assignment pre-chosen books left to choose from, I'm becoming a bit flustered.


I had originally chosen Allegiant for my October read, but ended up changing my mind.  In fact, Allegiant had been previously chosen for other months prior, but as I did in October, I changed my mind and went with a different Reading Assignment book.


Apparently, I'm quite reluctant to read Allegiant...


Anyway, when December rolls around, I won't have a choice, so the darn book will get read, one way or another.



  • Here are the rest of the books left to be read for my 2015 Reading Assignment Challenge:

Taste Test by Kelly Fiore

Vitro by Jessica Khoury

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

The Luckiest Lady in London by Sherry Thomas


  • Here are the "Extra Credit" books I have already chosen to be read in December, (whether as Extra Credit reads or part of the four books I need to read in December):

Where Angels Rest by Kate Brady

Where Evil Waits by Kate Brady

The Sweetest Thing by Jill Shalvis

Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis





I've already decided to try my hand at the Reading Assignment Challenge for 2016, if it is being hosted again.  Already, I've made a nice big list of books to choose from and will be finalizing my list soon.
