Kait | sixcrowsbooks (sixcrowsbooks) So, this is a lot like my reading challenge from this past year --- I will give the title of the book and who it's written by, when I finished reading it, and my star rating. And, of course, if anyone is curious on my thoughts of a particular book in this list, I will most likely have written a review about it.

Though, there is a minor difference --- now, instead of just putting the date I finished a book, I will also put the date I started it, as well.

Good luck to everyone participating next year!! And congratulations to everyone who participated this year, regardless if you met the goal you set for yourself or not!

Blagica  | 11903 comments You are doing great Kaitlyn! How did you like Helter Skelter I love true crime?

Thank you, Blagica! I liked it! It was really interesting; I never actually knew the specifics behind the Manson murders. The only big issue I had with the book itself, and not really the content, was that the author tended to repeat himself a lot, in regards to evidence or things people said. He also added things that I personally thought weren't needed, and I skipped over them, lol.

[Note: Yes, that question mark (?) is intentional. I just didn't know what to rate it.]


message 21: by Blagica , Cheerleader! (new)

Blagica  | 11903 comments 8 books are fantastic. is the question mark a good thing or bad? I hope March is as successful for you.

Thank you! It's neither, really. I had to read that book for a class I'm taking, and since I was looking for a particular thing throughout the book for the class, I didn't feel comfortable rating it. Maybe I'll read it another time, and rate it then.
