My mom and dad just got in last night, and they are here until December 30th so I feel like I won't be posting at all for the rest of 2012! So, I'm going to wrap up the three challenges I participated in this year today. Only one of which I actually finished... (shame shame on me!) But, this was the first year I tried to do any, and I think I'm going to sign up for even more this year, because as much as I strayed from them, I do sort of like having the organization and the goals to work towards, even if I may not complete them.
The first, and only challenge I finished, is the one from Goodreads! I signed up to read 50 books this year, and I am currently at 58! So, obviously I'm going to up the anti for 2013 and try and hit 75!
2012 GOODREADS READING CHALLENGE
The second challenge I signed up for, and I hope someone does this one again for 2013 is the '2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge' I had wrote an initial challenge list when I signed up (it's below) with 40 books on it. Throughout the challenge, I deviated from this list A LOT and ended up having blogged about 43 books that fell into this challenge, which is great! But, from this list I only managed to read 17/40.. which is pretty terrible. It's extra terrible because a lot of these books I REALLY Want to read! Some I ended up skipping with good reason - such as number 3, I didn't know this was sort of a second series to Vampire Academy, so I did read the first 2 VA books instead, and am not going to start Bloodlines until I'm done those. If this challenge gets done again, you will definitely see some of these turn up on my list for next year!
2012 A-Z Character Challenge
Duration: January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012
Read 26 different books having the main character begin with a letter of the alphabet. (if the story goes around more than one character you can pick only one of them for the challenge)
You can sign up anytime, and you can backdate books if you know when you finished them, as long as it was done in the year 2012.

I hope that everyone has a fantastic holiday season, and I will get back to you in the New Year!!
