Challenge Roundup for April

Pin It

Not a great month for challenges. Not a great reading month, period. April was just one of those months. I think I have my reading mojo back now though!

Let’s start with the good.

Once Upon a Time Challenge: Technically, since I picked the easiest level for this one, I’ve completed it. I read Garden Spells. I would like to read a couple of other books for it though. 1/1

Audiobook Challenge: Got another one done for this challenge: Anna and the French Kiss. I’m burning up this challenge! 8/12

Gender in SFF: Although I’ve finished The Left Hand of Darkness, I don’t have a review up for it yet. Since it hasn’t been easy finding books for this challenge, I found a Anne McCaffery that wasn’t listed, Dragonflight. I don’t know if that really counts but I’m going with it. This challenge has been completely out of my comfort zone. I don’t know if it will make me a sci-fi fan but it’s been interesting. 3/6

The 5th Canadian Books Challenge: Well, this is embarrassing. Not one book for this challenge in April. Oh well, I’ll work on it this month. 8/13

Genteel Ladies in Foreign Lands Project: I put Edith Wharton on a boat to Morocco. I’m in the middle of In Morocco right now. It has its ups and downs. It’s not the easiest book to read but it’s not the worst. What a ringing endorsement that is. Hopefully I’ll have finished it by next roundup.


Non-Reading Challenge

Trish’s Pin It and Do It Challenge starts today and already I have something done. Actually, I started this Apple Jacket back in March but never got around to finishing it until today. I have a few crochet projects I need to get to, but this is a start. 1/7

  1. An apple jacket!! Who would have thought!?

    You're kicking some butt on your other challenges, too. Way to go! Can't wait to see what else you whip up for the Pin It challenge.

  2. Mine was awful!!! I had a fairly good reading month despite hitting a reading block at the end. Awful on the challenges, though I did get two read for Once Upon a Time.

    I have to thank you for getting me hooked on Pinterest, you know. Now that I'm on, I spend some time every weekend pinning photos to my boards!!! lol Since I'm a visual person, this is something I can spend far too much time in! and I'm not crafty in the slightest, so I'm safe from Trish's challenge, though still tempted by it. I wonder if making a recipe would do?

    I have Dragonflight to read also. I hear it's very good!

    1. You don't have to be crafty! You can cook, or make any of your pins. There's lots a wiggle room.

      You're doing good on the Once Upon a Time Challenge!

  3. You can review The Left Hand of Darkness without me. I am really in a reading slump. I am reading good books and I just feel like everything is dragging...

    1. Okay. I had that happen to me lately too. It's frustrating but it will pass eventually.

  4. I've been afraid to even take stock of my challenges. I know I'm kicking butt at some and completely failing at others!

    1. If I didn't have a look at mine once in awhile, I'd be lost!

  5. Ummm...why does an apple need a jacket?

    1. In case it gets cold. ;) It's supposed to keep them from getting bruised.
