I finished out the Goodreads Reading Challenge in 2012 with bumping the number up slightly a twice! Yes Twice! AND I still surpassed the number. I read more than I had thought I would. Now do keep in mind that this number includes novella's too.
I read 99 of 95 books!Amazing feat for me. I even read more than that as there were a few beta reads, I think 4, that are not on the list yet that I did read. :D Amazing year for me!
I was hoping to get to many more YA reads in 2012, but this isn't tooooo bad... It was more than I read in 2011.
With only 14 YA reads I fall in the YA Fledgling category. lol.

Now, the A to Z Challenge was a challenge for me. I can't believe how many book titles actually start with the same letters! Good think they aren't shelved that way on the book shelves. ;) And I struggled with a few basic letters I thought would be easy. This was an interesting view for me.
I fell in Alphabet Soup category with getting through 18 letters. ;)

I also joined in Book Chick City's Horror and UF Reading Challenge for 2012. Not bad at all.
I also have Debut Authors challenge for 2012. I was to do 1 a month...I kinda failed at this one. But LOVED the new authors I did find.
So that's the challenges...I didn't do terrible, but didn't hit the numbers I was hoping for. Now to start off with a clean slate for 2013. I'm not joining any reading challenges as I've got other things in mind to do this year.
