As the end of the year nears, I am wrapping up my 2012 reading challenges. After three years of attempting challenges, I think this is the first where I have completed most of them (there are still some DNF's in there unfortunately). I am also excited to see all the reviews people have linked to the challenge that I am hosting - The Immigrant Stories Challenge. You can check them out here. I am going to host again in 2013 so look for the sign-up info soon!
Today I am going to wrap up two challenges for which all the reviews are posted (I have finished others but the reviews of some are still pending).
Ireland Reading Challenge - This challenge is hosted by Carrie at Books and Movies. My Mom is from Ireland and I have always enjoyed books set in Ireland so this is an easy one for me. This year I joined at the Kiss the Blarney Stone level (6 books) and I read:
Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy
Whitethorn Woods by Maeve Binchy (audio)
Solace by Belinda McKeon
When Summer Is In the Meadow by Niall Williams and Christine Breen
Lola's Secret by Monica McInerney
Recipes for a Perfect Marriage by Morag Prunty
South Asian Challenge is hosted by Swapna at S. Krishna's Books. I read a lot from this part of the world so I have joined this challenge for the past few years. This year I read five books:
The World We Found by Thrity Urmigar
Miss New India by Bharati Mukherjee
Little Princes by Conor Grennan
And Laughter Fell From The Sky by Jyotsna Sreenivasan
The Good Muslim by Tahmima Anam
Do you do reading challenges? How have you done on yours so far?
