Hey, Beth!

I just signed up for your challenge but silly me signed up on the "wrap up" page.. I know.. I know.. So I apologise and have now signed up in the right spot (and obviously have not read enough books this year yet to finish your challenge. Just thought I would let you know ;)

Still one of my very favorite challenges. I'm already looking forward to next year!!!

Ellie said...

I finished the challenge on vacation. It was really fun to do the challenge. I wouldn't have gotten to read all these cool books without doing the challenge. I beat my sister to the end -- but that doesn't count because she waited for me. I'll do it again next year.

Ellie: I'm so glad you enjoyed the challenge and I hope your sister catches up soon. I'm already planning the categories for next year, so I hope you remember to join again in January!

Ellie said...

I left comments for all these books: Dark Days in the Deep Sea (Body of Water), Clementine (Food), Junie B. Jones One Man Band (Music), Buffalo Before Breakfast (Place Name), Ivy and Bean (Plant), and Goddess Girls: Athena the Brain (Title). Thanks for letting me do this challenge!

I finished!!! And I enjoyed it immensely.

Thank you for hosting it, Beth, and I am ever so ready to participate again next year.

I finally finished the challenge -- but not before my daughter, Ellie, as she is so proud to point out. I have left review links for the following books: The Motion of the Ocean (Body of Water); Curry: A Tale of Cooks and Conquerors (Food); Goat Song (Music); Kabul Beauty School (Place Name); Garlic and Sapphires (Plant); and The Professor and the Madman (Title).

Thanks for hosting this challenge, Beth. I'm already looking forward to next year's categories!

Christine said...

I just finished the challenge a few days ago and had so much fun with this one! I'll definitely join again next year. How dorky am I that I'm already excited for the unveiling of new categories? LOL!

Thanks for the challenge, Beth! ^_^

joanna said...

I finished too and also had loads of fun. Thanks Beth for running this, it's brilliant!

I've finished just in time, and I did it with all Australian books again! (It was harder to do that this year LOL).
BTW if an Aussie wins the prize, the Book Depository delivers free to Australia so that would be better value than Amazon.
Thanks for hosting, and have a great festive season - cheers, Lisa Hill, ANZ LitLovers

Shonna said...

Loved trying to find books that I was already going to read that fit into this challenge.
It was great fun.
Looking forward to next year.

I think I'm not going to be able to finish the challenge, I''m 2 books short.

Beth F said...

Oh please do link up your wrap-up post. Hope you had fun trying to finish the challenge. I failed several challenges this year, too.

Thanks for hosting this challenge. It was really fun selecting the books and I loved all of them besides one. Not too bad!

I love this challenge - the most fun is picking the titles! I have just started my last book to finish 2010's.

I just finished this challenge with barely any wiggle room left! Then again, I did start it pretty late. It was definitely a ton of fun. I can't wait for the next one!
