Challenge Roundup: October

This should actually be called RIP VI Roundup since that's all I read for challenges this month.

Let's have a look-see.


The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian 
4:50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie
The Man in the Picture by Susan Hill
The Castle of Wolfenbach by Eliza Parsons
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

All totaled I read 10 books (that I reviewed), and 3 short stories. I not only met the challenge that challenge got served!* I have 2 more RIP audiobooks to be reviewed so more like 12. That's the most I've read for RIP VI and I enjoyed every minute of it. There were so many great books to be read this year!

Anyway that was a lot of fun! Let's do it all again next year. (Links to the RIP books reviewed last month can be found in this post.)

Sadly, I have neglected The 5th Canadian Books Challenge but I plan on changing that soon.

If you or someone close to you has a reading challenge problem, seek help. Or don't: reading is good for you! Also eat your veggies and sit up straight.


  1. I missed my goal of four books by one. :( BUT I will most certainly finish the books I had on the docket: The Night Strangers and When She Woke. I do love me some RIP.

  2. I did really well reading for this challenge, but I sort of failed at reviewing... One day I will maybe catch-up!

  3. You did great! I'm not sure how many books I've read for this challenge. Will count and see. Good luck on the Canadian Books Challenge.
