Technically, it’s still fall for a few more days, so I’m going to wrap up my personal fall reading challenge! Here are some mini reviews of what I read November and December:

Friday Fun and Fall Reading Challenge Update

When I started my personal fall reading challenge, the point was to read off my own shelves. I pick up a lot of books at conferences, events, and because you know, I like books.

Let’s just say that “like” of books is a little hard to wrangle.

I live in a big city, so […]

Happy October! The leaves are changing and it’s boot and cardigan weather. What, you don’t label seasons by fashion options? I’m a fall girl forever. My favorite season by far. 

Time to check in on my personal reading challenge.

Personal Fall Reading Challenge

Happy (almost) Fall! Hey, it’s September and school has started for pretty much everyone (if you’re that lucky–yes, lucky because I love school). Taking a look at my happily crowded bookshelves the other day, I realized I needed to take action. I’m cut off from the library (except audio books).

Road Trip Wednesday: How Many Books Do You Read in a Year?

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. 

This week’s topic:  About how many books do you read in a year? Do you want to read more? Or, less?

Reading Challenges: Make a dent in your To-Read pile!
