R.I.P Challenge VI - The End

It is hard to believe that the R.I.P. Challenge is over for another year. I am hoping to get some time later in the week to work on large-scale reviewing because there are lots of R.I.P. reads that I still haven't spent time writing up thoughts for and really want to. I had a lot of fun with this challenge between reading books, joining in for group reads, and even slipping in a few movies. I look forward to next years!

  1. Looks like you knocked this challenge out of the park!

  2. Wow! Well done, Kelly!

  3. Whew! And I thought I read a lot for RIP! Good job!

  4. You read a lot of great books! I see more than a few of my favorite classics onvyour list.

  5. Congrats on finishing. You did *really* well!

  6. You did a great job on this challenge!

  7. Um. Wow! I'd say you enjoyed this challenge to the fullest!

  8. Holy Smokes, Kailana! You read the pants off me (so to speak :). I loved The Woman in White, but the other book in your list which I really wanted to read and haven't yet is The Night Circus. The library has it, and I have it on hold, but I feel like I'll be waiting until the RIP VII.

  9. What an impressive list! I crown you Queen of R.I.P Reads.

  10. Congratulations! That is an impressive list and they aren't all short books either - I've just spotted Jonathan Strange on your list - it took me about 4 months to read that one!

  11. You didn't really finish all those books... did you? So impressive! I'm looking forward to seeing some of your missing reviews, you have some great books on your list!

    **farmlanebooks: I didn't love Jonathan Strange and for that I feel like a terrible person...
