  1. Wow! You're doing awesome with your challenges!

  2. You have quite the lineup for Mt. TBR. There are several on your list that I have on my own TBR. I haven't listed the books that I want to read for the challenge, but am participating in that one along with a few others. This is the first year that I am doing reading challenges aside from my yearly Goodreads goal.


I do a happy dance every time I get a comment. (You should be grateful that you’re not around to witness this dance. It’s truly horrifying.) Leave a link to your blog so I can visit you.
