My Official 2015 Reading Assignment Challenge Summary Post



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


I wasn't going to create another individual progress report, but I've got more stuff to ramble about, so bear with me.


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

A Summary

November turned out all sorts of weird, between me thinking I wouldn't be able to finish my chosen November Reading Assignment books, to me reorganizing the last stretch of Reading Assignment books, and then finally getting some clarification on how the Extra Credits can be used.


Bear with my logic here...  I realized that December would be a busy month for me, as it usually is, what with holidays and friends being in town and lots of other things going on.  While I had thought to simply save my four Extra Credits for December and add four books to the Assignment Challenge, I started having misgivings since my reading progress had been impeded these past few months with busy family schedules and whatnot.


December, I realized, might be worse.  So, when I had a few extra days, I decided to try and use an Extra Credit here and there to shorten my list up a little bit and get ahead of schedule.


It worked out fine in October.  And this time in November, I wasn't sure I'd be able to read an extra book, but I got frustrated with Allegiant halfway into it and just threw in the towel (for a while) and started reading The Luckiest Lady in London, which took me all of one day to complete.


And then I finished reading Allegiant and ended up using another Extra Credit like I had wanted to do all along.


A Forecast

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


1.  Vitro by Jessica Khoury

2.  Taste Test by Kelly Fiore


Extra Credit Book #1:  The Sweetest Thing by Jill Shalvis

Extra Credit Book #2:  Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis


With only two books left on my Reading Assignment Challenge list and two Extra Credits left to use, it looks like I'm set for the rest of this year for this reading challenge.


It's been a good year, overall and I'm looking forward to the next year's Reading Assignment Challenge, of which our lovely hosts have promised some changed rules and more fun! 


I've already whittled a large list down to approximately 50 books with a few that I'm still debating.  I will have my list finalized soon, hopefully.  I've put more thought into next year's Reading Assignment reading list and hope to have just as much fun and feel just as much accomplishment with its completion as I have this year.
