My First Incomplete Challenge




I was afraid this might happen. As the year was starting to draw to a close it was time for me to evaluate how many books I needed to read to complete the challenges I hadn't yet finished. For the most part the ones that I have running, I am either really close to finishing or just racking up books beyond my goal...but then there is this one. Books and Movies Ireland Reading Challenge sounded so fabulous. I love books set in Ireland and it ran from February to November and I set a goal of reading four books. I haven't read a single one. With the amount of review copies and other commitments I have going on, I figured it was better to focus on finishing the challenges I have a fighting chance of completing. If it starts up next year, I'll give it a try again. 

How are you all doing with the rest of your challenges as the year is drawing to a close?

  1. You're doing great if this is your first unfinished challenge. They're just for fun anyway.

  3. I haven't joined a single challenge, so you are way ahead of me. I didn't even know about them when I first started my blog in March. Next year though - I will join some for sure.

  4. I failed at this one, too. In fact, I finally gave up on all challenges.

  6. I joined only a couple of challenges this year and I am hoping I complete them.

    I'm happy I didn't see the Ireland challenge before, I wouldn't have been able to resist it.

  7. I think you're doing great. As a new blogger, I got kind of carried away with the challenges. So far, I've completed two and missed completing one by one book. What I like about the challenges is that they help me focus on specific genres. If I fall short, I fall short. I have one ending this month; and it could go either way.
