Progress on challenges

Daughters of the Moon, Sisters of the Sun: Young Women and Mentors on the Transition to Womanhood by K. Wind Hughes was my February Random Read. However, I flipped through it and suddenly questioned why I bought it. So it went into the donation pile instead.

I discovered Safe Haven by going out of my comfort zone this month.

I completed the following letters for the A-Z Book Challenge: W (apparently I got all the easy ones last month!)

I read 1 book for the Mount TBR Reading Challenge.

I read 0 books for the Anne Rice Challenge. You can still sign up!

I read 0 books for the Debut Author Challenge.

I completed the following squares for the Book Bingo Challenge: read 4 books that are part of a series

I read 1 book for the Nerdy Non-Fiction Challenge.

I read 1 book for the Dystopia Challenge.

I read 1 book written by women.

I read 1 book for the Seriously Series Challenge.

Progress on my TBR pile: I added 22 books to my to read list and removed 4, so my pile increased by 18 this month!
