Book Tempter's TBR Challenge Wrap Up

You may remember about 12 weeks ago I decided to tackle this challenge. Here we are today to let you know how I did!

  1. The Chunky Boi - Read a book over 500 pages.

This beast has 503 pages. And I just barely got it finished in time! That's what I get for procrastinating.

2. The Newbie – Read the newest book on your TBR.

When I started this challenge, this was the book that had come in the most recently.

3. The Old Timer - Read the book that has been on your TBR the longest

This had been hanging out at the top of my list since 2014. Time to get it done, so I did! It was fascinating and strange.

4. The Collector - Read an Anthology

This is a collection of short stories. I think an anthology actually means a collection of works by several authors, but this is what I had, so I went with it.

5. Do Not Transcend Your Genre - Read a book in your favorite Genre

This is actually paranormal fantasy instead of straight fantasy, but it's still fantasy so I'm counting it. There are demons, vampires, werewolves, and all manner of critters and magic in this book.

6. 7. & 8. Three's Company - Read a trilogy

I was really impressed by these books that are now considered "older YA" since they came out at least 10 years ago. There are very few tropes in these books that would make them cliche.

9. Face Reality - Read a non-fiction book.

I enjoyed this book about the guy in charge of the ravens at the Tower of London. I read lots more non-fiction, but this is the one I counted for this challenge.

10. Broaden Your Horizons - Read a book by an author not from the U.S. or U.K.

The author of this lovely book is from South Korea. I didn't even cheat and choose an author from Australia!

11. Randommm!!! - Read the book from the second shelf, third from the left.

Now you know why this random book showed up in my June wrap up. It was the one in the assigned spot on the shelf!

12. Treat Yourself - Choose a book you want to read.

I actually read a ton of books just because I wanted to, but this is the first one I thought of.

So that's it! I will admit that the last weekend of the readathon, I finished 3 books by just plowing through them to the detriment of everything I needed to be doing. But I finished the readathon! I almost never finish all the challenges! Yay me!
