Challenge Update

The Cage by Megan Shepherd counts as my sci-fy book for the Read Harder Challenge from Book Riot this month.  In total I have 16 complete out of 24, but everything left is proving very challenging.

In Other News

I started checking out movies from the library as well as books and now highly recommend Pride.  I watched it a couple weeks ago and I loved the movie and am OBSESSED with the song “Bread & Roses”.  I’d never heard it before, but I’ve probably watched that clip from the movie 20+ times now.  The song starts around the 1:00 min mark. 

My brother and his wife returned from a trip to England so my travel bug is biting harder then ever, now I just need to make a plan and go somewhere.


  1. I've done 16/24 on the Read Harder Challenge, too. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit it, but I still have a category I thought would be very easy left (the male author category). The only books I've read this year by men have fulfilled other challenge tasks! The rest are ones that I just can't seem to make myself get to-- namely non-fiction or classics. I figure I still have six months... that's plenty of time to get through 8 more books I don't really feel like reading right this minute!

    1. I'm dreadfully low on books by men this year but my one didn't count on another category. The Rosie Project is a fun rom com written by a man:)

      I keep lucking out and having books I was reading anyway count - doesn't really fit in with the challenge aspect though.
