Thank you to Katrina over at Callapidder Days for hosting this challenge!!! I got a lot of books read that have been sitting on my bookshelves, in addition to all the review books I had to read. This definitely helped me get books read for the other challenges I am participating in. I'm not sure if I will complete all of them this year, but I definitely made good headway in them through this challenge.

I read a lot of great books this time around and it's hard to pick one favorite, but some of the top books were: Bella Fortuna and the Adriana Trigiani books.

What about you? Did you participate in the challenge and if so, how did you do?


  1. Congrats on finishing your challenge! I see a lot of great authors on your list. I haven't read Adriana Trigiani but I'm always meaning to check out her books, I've heard such good things. Happy holidays!
