Celestine | 160 comments I'm in! Starting now. Unfortunately with a crappy book that is counting towards both challenges. I can't ever find a good MC romance. But at least there is a skull on the cover.

I just remembered this challenge! Going to start today!


message 5: by Elena C. (new)

Elena C. ARGH!!! I didn't realize we had time only till November 1st! I'm so late :/


message 6: by Celestine (new)

Celestine | 160 comments Ugh. My selections aren't going so well this year. Started and rejected several books and even the ones I have picked I feel like I am slogging through. Never a good sign when reading feels like a chore.

Do you guys want to extend the date of the challenge?


message 8: by Elena C. (new)

Elena C. Sorry to hear this year's batch isn't good, Celestine!

Nenia, I was so sure we'd have time till the end of November that I schedule a BR for Interview with the Vampire, my "romance with a vampire" pick with some friends on Nov. 6 - too late to change it now: I wouldn't mind if we could get some more time tbh :D


message 9: by Celestine (new)

Celestine | 160 comments I don’t really care. Either I will finish the challenge or I won’t. Depends on if I keep having trouble with my picks.


message 10: by Elena C. (new)

Elena C. Actually, I don't mind either - I'd better focus on the 2018 challenge: next year I'll be better prepared ;)

Hi all, I updated the challenge's deadline to November 11. Hopefully that will allow for a more comfortable deadline!


message 12: by Celestine (new)

Celestine | 160 comments Read a good one today. It was perfect for the graveyard category.

Ooh, what was it?


message 14: by Celestine (new)

Celestine | 160 comments Honor Among Thieves by Elizabeth Boyce.


message 15: by Celestine (new)

Celestine | 160 comments Well, I read 14 out of 15 books for the challenge. I've been very busy and my reading time was way down this month. Sadly, it was pretty unsatisfactory reading for the most part, too. Oh well.
