2015 Reading Challenge

This year, I've challenged myself to read at least 20 books in 2015. You can read more about it here.

I'm also doing Modern Mrs. Darcy's reading challenge, which she writes all about here.

Here is a running list of what I've been reading this year! If a book checks off a category on MMD's challenge, it's in parentheses below the book.  Books that are on my original reading challenge list are linked to in the original post; I've included a link to new books to the list here.


Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
     (a book from your childhood) (review)

The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker
     (a book recommended by someone with great taste - MMD) (but sadly, was not my cup of tea!)


Stardust: Being a Romance within the Realms of Faerie by Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess
     (a book in a genre you don't typically read - graphic novel)


Ummmm... this month just flew by. I'm going to chalk it up to Lent.


Veronica Mars: Mr. Kiss and Tell by Rob Thomas
     (a book published this year)

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
     (a book that's currently on the bestseller list)


Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
     (this doesn't meet any of my challenge categories that are left - but it was SO. GOOD.)

The Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan
     (a book you chose because of the cover and from MMD's Summer Reading Guide)

First Impressions: A Novel of Old Books, Unexpected Love, and Jane Austen by Charlie Lovett
     (a book you've been meaning to read [from the moment MMD first posted about it... yes, not that long, but it took me too long to read this great book!] and from MMD's Summer Reading Guide)

Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

Case Histories by Kate Atkinson
     (a book by a favorite author)


What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

  1. Yay! Books to add to my reading list! I'm a total bibliophile; I just completed the whole "read 20 hours this summer" program at my library in about a week and a half. I am currently adding a bunch of these to my library list :) Have you read the "Jane Austen Takes the South" series by Mary Jane Hathaway? I just discovered it (unfortunately, there are only three books), read the first book, and really enjoyed it!


I l.o.v.e. reading your comments!

I would love even more to be able to respond to them, so pretty please link your e-mail address to your name!
