2015HWLogo2It’s time for our January Report Card – a chance to update your progress, let us know if you’re on track for that A+, and enter the monthly giveaway! If you’re not familiar with the Reading Assignment Challenge hosted by Fantasy is More Fun and Because Reading, get all the details and sign up here!

Guess who failed this challenge? This girl right here…I wanted to like the books I picked and by the time I got to the last two I just couldn’t do it anymore, I DNF way to many. I have a better plan for next year. Since I was the one who came up with this challenge, I realized that I do like to make thing rather hard 😉 I hope you will sign up for next year since we changed some things around which will make it more fun and it will be harder to fail at it. 🙂

My Reading Level 2: 12 books (1 book/month) ~ 1 Extra Credit, 1 Pass
you can find my list HERE with Book Covers and Synopsis
  • The Diamond Thief by Sharon Gosling ~ January Book four-stars
  • I Wish by Elizabeth Langston ~ February Book dnf
  • Between by Megan Whitmar ~ March Book four-stars
  • Storm Siren by Mary Weber ~ April Book dnf
  • Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke ~ May Book dnf
  • Behind the Scenes by Dahlia Adler ~ June Book four-stars
  • Deadwood by Kell Andrews ~ July Book three-stars

  • Extracted by Sherry D. Ficklin – September Book (Pass)
  • Whisper Falls by Elizabeth Langston
  • The Hit List by Nikki Urang
  • Follow Me Through Darkness by Danielle Ellison

The last 3 books I bailed on, I feel awful bailing but I just don’t want to read them if they will turn into a DNF. Maybe one day I will get to them but not this time.

    I agree with Angie F. above: You were just testing the rules for next year. 😛 It’s how all great challenges get started, right? Trial and Error. lol

    I always say, “Read what you like.” And I’m always telling my best friend not to dwell on a book she’s not getting into. It turns you off reading if you don’t already read a lot; or it holds up your reading progress when you’ve already got an extensive list. Unfortunately, I’m also one of those who don’t practice what I preach… I’ve stubbornly powered through at least four, maybe five books on my Reading Assignment list even though I couldn’t get into them… just because I don’t make sense.

    But I’ve got a better plan for next year and have already started choosing books I KNOW I’ll read, but just never had the chance to make time for… or at least I hope I’ll still want to read them when the time comes. 🙂

    Anyway, I also wanted to rehash some rules so that I’m not confused. I understand the part that Angie F. stated where you can add extra books to our list for December if you haven’t used any Extra Credits so that we have 4 extra books to read for the month of December. But what if I’ve partially used my Extra Credits?

    For instance, I used 2 Extra Credits already and so when December rolls around, I only have 2 more books from my original list left to read. Do I just add 2 more books to that so that I have 4 books for my must read number for December; and then use the last two Extra Credits for another 2 books, thus tallying 6 total? Or do I just read my last two books and then use the Extra Credits for 2 more books, tallying 4 books to read in December? Am I making sense? O.o Am I being too OCD about this? O.O

    Anyway… I’m also curious about the changes made for next year. And thank you so much for creating and hosting this challenge! I don’t comment very much, but I’ve honestly had a lot of fun and I’ve since expanded my author reading list because of this challenge.

    • I’m butting in because Michelle wasn’t sure how to answer – these extra credits are confusing (one of the things we’re changing next year). So here’s how it works:

      For each extra credit you haven’t used you can add 1 book for December… So for you that means you can add two more books. You need to have them added to your list by December 7th, 11:59 CST. The catch is this… If you add books you MUST read them to successfully complete the challenge. So don’t add more than you can handle. You’ve made it too far to fail out now!

      Let us know if that was unclear 🙂

        Okay. So that means that I would just read my last two books, and then I can use my last two Extra Credits to add two more books. That sounds good. Thanks for the clarification!

        I had originally already chosen four other books for the four Extra Credits (assuming I’d have them still by the end of the year), but since I already used two, that means I’ll have to choose two of those books… and I’ll probably just roll the other two books over to read for next year’s challenge. Sorry, thinking out loud–it helps me understand things better if I discuss them in public.

        Okay. Thanks again! I will go and update my lists. Again, looking forward to next year’s challenge and the new changes!

  2. You’re the host! You didn’t fail! You were just….testing the rules for next year. 😉

    And speaking of rules, I just want to make sure I’m reading them right. If we didn’t use our Extra Credits, we can now add extra books to our list for December and therefore can link up more books for the final month? I still have all 4 of mine, so if I want, I can add 4 more books to my challenge list?

    I can’t wait to see what changes you’ve made! I’ve already been thinking of books I want to put on my list for next year!
