Week in Review (15)

Random Thoughts

Another week with big reading plans and not enough time to hardly read anything. I had posted on Friday and said I was taking the evening to read, but I got interrupted so many times I gave up. Last night, though, I actually managed to finish A Discovery of Witches, so I am happy about that! I have been intrigued by that book since I heard about its release, but took a while to get to it. I am glad it lived up to my expectations and I am really looking forward to book 2.

In May, since April is just a slow reading month, I need to get back on track for my reading challenges. I will never finish the Reading Swap if I don't get around to some of the books. I should at least read the ones that would count for the Once Upon a Time Challenge. That's the only challenge I am doing well with. I have read 5 books and two graphic novels that count. Then, I have watched 6 movies and completed 2 short story collections. At least something is working out!

Challenge News

Like I said above, other than the Once Upon a Time Challenge, I am not making much progress on anything. This week essentially everything I read counts for that particular challenge.
