Wrap Up ~ Spring Reading Thing 2009

The Spring Reading Thing challenge ended on 6/20/09. This challenge ran from March 20 to June 20 and it was to read as many books as you could. Thank-you Katrina at Callapidder Days for hosting this challenge.

Did you stick to your original goals or did you change your list as you went along?

My list changed as the challenge went along, depending what I was in the mood to read.

What was your favorite book that you read this spring? Least favorite? Why?

Favorite book was the Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost. There are three books in the series so far and I read them all for this challenge.
Halfway to the Grave, One Foot in the Grave and At Graves End. Least Favorite was Montana Creeds: Tyler by Linda Lael Miller. I just didn't like it as much as the first 2 books in the series.

Did you discover a new author or genre this spring? Did you love them? Not love them?
I discovered Jeaniene Frost and Charlaine Harris. I loved their books!!

What was your favorite thing about the challenge?

The freedom of the challenge, being able to read what I want and changing my picks if I wanted to.
