Chick Lit:

  1. All Eyes on Her by Poonam Sharma
  • What was the best book you read this spring? Daring Chloe was really really good. Blood Sisters was an eyeopener.
  • What book could you have done without? All goodies this time around, although The Wedding Machine did take me a while to get into.
  • Did you try out a new author this spring? If so, which one, and will you be reading that author again? Yep, finally gave in and started The A-List series and found it's not too bad.
  • If there were books you didn't finish, tell us why. Did you run out of time? Realize those books weren't worth it? I finished all my books this time around.
  • Did you come across a book or two on other participants' lists that you're planning to add to your own to-be-read pile? Which ones? Enjoyed seeing all the other Christian fiction books on other TBR lists. Makes me want to go back and reread them again.
  • What did you learn -- about anything -- through this challenge? Maybe you learned something about yourself or your reading style, maybe you learned not to pick so many nonfiction books for a challenge, maybe you learned something from a book you read. Whatever it is, share! I had a short original list to begin with. My goal was to read at least one more than the 53 from the fall challenge. I had no idea I had read so many this go round!
  • What was the best part of the Spring Reading Challenge? I read all my library books that I had kept putting off. So I got them all done with no fines to pay!
  • Would you be interested in participating in another reading challenge this all? Definitely. Although with school and wedding plans, I'll prally have a really small list next time!
  • Any other thoughts, impressions, or comments. Thanks for hosting this Katrina!!!! Can't wait til fall!


  1. Oh my goodness...62 books?!? I can't even hope to compete with you. :) I thought that getting through 15 was good. Glad you enjoyed all your books!

  2. Wow! 62 is an impressive number of books! I wish I had the time, I'd be right there with you. As it is I'm already giving up much-needed sleep just because I HAVE to read--it's vital to life:) I'll definitely have to bookmark you for great book tips!

  3. Good job finishing all the books on your list! You are a reading machine! I can't believe (well I can but you get what I mean) that you read 62 books in 3 months! That is crazy!

  4. 62!! Oh wow, I think it is safe to say you are a true reader!!! :) I enjoyed the fact that the challenge spurred me on to get around to actually finishing the numerous books I had started.

  5. Great job on the challenge. A couple of books on your list I have been interested in and will add them to my TBR list.

  6. Girl, you're awesome! Way to go!
