I have finally completed the BuzzyMoms 2019 reading challenge!
I’ve got to admit, some of these challenges were actually difficult for me to complet. Some actually turned out better than expected.. I enjoyed many of the books I thought I wouldn’t.
Here are the books I read for the challenge:
- Rapunzel and the Griffen Prince by Vivienne Savage (popular fairytale) ☆☆☆☆
- Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown (based on a true story) ☆☆☆☆☆
- The Living and the Dead by Sara Furlong Burr (set in your home state) ☆☆☆
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelly (made into a movie) ☆☆☆
- Bless Your Heart by Kimbra Swain (free book) ☆☆
- Caraval by Stephanie Garber (recommended by a friend) ☆☆☆☆
- Sorry I’m Late, I didn’t want to come by Jessica Pan (published in 2009) ☆☆☆☆
- Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng (audio book) ☆☆☆
- The Cruel Prince by Holly Black (read in a day) ☆☆☆
- Guide to Living Your Best Life by John Goblikon (Humorous) ☆☆☆☆
- Magic Hunter by C.N. Crawford (author that uses initials) ☆☆☆☆
- Strange Times: The Ghost in the Girl by Tom DeLonge (by a musician) ☆☆
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (multiple POV) ☆☆☆
- Unenchanted by Chanda Hahn (a favorite) ☆☆☆☆
- Origin by Jessing Khoury (plant in title/on cover) ☆☆☆
- Cinder & Ella by Kelly Oram (should be a movie) ☆☆☆☆☆
- Dracula by Bram Stoker (classic not read before) ☆☆☆
- Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli (2018 Goodreads winner) ☆☆
- A Year of Positive Thinking by Cyndie Spiegel (genre not usually read) ☆☆☆
- Five Feet Apart by Mikki Daughtry (made you cry) ☆☆☆☆
- Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake (more than 400 pages) ☆☆☆☆
- Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes (banned) ☆☆☆☆☆
- Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell (own but never read) ☆☆
- The Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd (first in a series) ☆☆
A few of these books were so hard for me to get through, Cloud Atlas and The Grim Lovelies for starters. They weren’t… terrible. Just not my cup of tea I suppose? Leah on the Off Beat didn’t do it for me either, I was pretty disappointed. I absolutely enjoyer Frankenstein, Flowers for Algernon, and Two Dark Reigns.
I’m very proud of myself for sticking it through and reading some of these books. Some really surprised me!
I cannot wait to see what else I can read for the remainder of the year, there is after all quite a bit left! And of course to start planning next years challenge. 🙂
