Thank you! And I apologize...

Gosh, I didn't know I was SOOO BEHIND with replying your comments!! Sorry :(

I LOVE reading your comments to my posts - I need to do a better job replying. I think I'm finally caught up! So *** THANK YOU *** for reading my posts and sharing your thoughts with me - I appreciate that!

I am also thinking of adding a few regular features to my blog since it's 98% book reviews now... need to give it some thought since it requires some commitments (I set up to do Booking Through Thursday regularly, but failed...)

Probably should also do a 6 months reviews on how I'm doing with the challenges at the end of June - some I have completed, some I haven't even started... some I am confident I will finish, some not so much. Since this is my first year blogging and doing challenges, I have much to learn. So far I found that I am picking books I want to read (which is not a bad thing), instead of picking books that'd fit a challenge... so for those I don't think I'd be able to complete (e.g. Bibliophilic, Global, and Take Another Chance), I may just keep on reading what I choose, and see how many of them will fall into those challenges.

I haven't started War Through the Generations (Vietnam) or Marple, Poirot and Holmes yet, but I really want to give these 2 challenges a try. I have 1 book for each challenge sitting my TBR pile (I have a TBR pile - books I own or have borrowed from the library already and TBR lists for Fiction, Non-fiction, and YA. Gosh they're growing so long already!)

Of course I am also joining the Crazy Book Tours for Adult Fiction and Non-Fiction! I am excited though since this is something new. I have to be careful not to sign up for too many! I think 3 books have or about to start so we'll see how that goes!


  1. I also told myself I will do BTT weekly but sometimes the question just doesn't touch me so I don't participate.

    This is only my 1st year blogging also and I was very good with challenges, only joined 3 just as a test.

  2. @Marce - you are wise to sign up for just 3! I think next year I have to be more selective, since I'm doing 11 this year! Though some aren't really a real challenge since I know I could easily meet targets (e.g. memoir, non-fiction) but sign up just to see what the others read. I think I stopped BTT too because I didn't have good answers to some questions, then I just slack off when not doing it regularly.

    @Serena - thanks!

  3. Yep, I have a hard time not signing up for too many books through the tours! I look forward to seeing what you think of Damaged!

  4. @ham1299 - it's so addicting to get free books isn't it (minus shipping :)
