I’m Doing My Happy Dance!

SQUEEEE!!!!

I’m on my very last book in my TBR Challenge that me and Ames started at the beginning of this year. We were supposed to read 50 books in our TBR pile and I just had to flat out read 50 books period. We both made lists of the books we wanted to read and though mine has changed with the wind, I am finally finishing it up with Travis Jame’s book, Crazy Sweet by Tara Janzen.

Ames, the brilliant reader that she is already done finished her challenge last week so I was a bit behind her but finally, I’m just about done and though I’m not going to finish up the book tonight, tomorrow or the day after I should officially be done, but goodness, it’s been a good long while since we started the challenge and I can’t believe it’s done.

Ames has already started a new challenge but I think I’m going to just change up my challenge and read a book by an author/genre that I’ve never tried before. My friend Nicole here at work has asked me to read one of her books and so I told her that if she reads one of my romance novels, I’ll read one of hers. I don’t know what kind of books she reads but I’m going to try my bestest to give it a go.

Wish me luck!
