2010 Challenge Update:
I am happy to report that I did finish one challenge this month.  I was able to complete the Audio book challenge..completed post coming on that (I forgot to do it earlier).
Series Challenge Season 4 - 5/7 books, 1/3 series
What's in a Name?3 Challenge - 5/6 completed
Chic Lit Challenge 2010 - 4/8 completed
Year of the Historical - 9/12 completed
War Through the Generations - 4/5 completed
Stephanie Plum - 5/6 completed
Young Adult Challenge - 11/12 completed
TBR Challenge - 8/24 completed
Buy 1 book and read it - 10/12 completed


Overall this is my worst month so far.  I'm actually happy that I ended up with 6 books completed because I honestly didn't even think I would finish that many.  As you know I was getting upset about my lack of reading but thanks to your comments I actually got better about it.  It really isn't about the numbers, it's about the enjoyment of reading.  That being said, I still hope that in October I'm able to get out of my funk and read some more books.  I think I might need to focus on some paranormal reads..in honor of Halloween of course.  Although, I am close to finishing several challenges so I might try to work on those too.  Who knows what's going to happen! I never know what I'll read next until I finish a book and have to decide (except for the couple of buddy reads I have scheduled that is. haha).

Great mystery choices, I really want to read a Lisa Jackson but never pick one up.

The enjoyment of reading is definitely more important. Enjoy your Oct reads.

Marce - I would recommend a different Lisa Jackson book..this one and the one it follows weren't the best in my opinion. I have a couple of positive looking buddy reads this month..so fingers crossed I do enjoy them.

Lover of Books - Thanks!
