First, I read for my year-long Century of Books project. Originally this was a 2 year challenge but I'm just reading along with it now until I'm done, however long it takes.
I've read & reviewed titles representing 69 years, only 31 to go.
I joined in on the RIP Challenge once again, and really enjoyed a month of mysteries & spooky reads. I read:
The Couple Next Door / Shari Lapena
Running on Fumes / Christian Guay-Poliquin
The Spawning Grounds / Gail Anderson-Dargatz
Uncanny Stories / May Sinclair
The Motion of Puppets / Keith Donohue
The Hunter & the Wild Girl / Pauline Holdstock
An Air That Kills / Margaret Millar
I also happened upon the #WomenInTranslation challenge month in August, and jumped right in -- that was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed combining #WIT with my ongoing Canadian Book Challenge. I reviewed 10 books first published in Canadian French, 2 translated from Inuktitut, 1 from Catalan, 1 from Norwegian, and 3 from France French.
And on that note, I'm halfway through this year's Canadian Book Challenge (wherein the challenge is to read and review 13 Canadian books from July 1 - July 1) and have been meeting my own monthly goal of 13 reviews a month, so far at least!
And for 2017, my reading challenges will be much the same:
Reading as many titles for the Century of Books as possible (hopefully 31!)
Reading more Women in Translation all year long, but especially in August.
Joining the RIP Challenge again, as usual.
And, reading and reviewing LOTS more Canadian books for the rest of the 10th Canadian Book Challenge and more for the 11th Canadian Book Challenge!
