2017 Color Coded Reading Challenge wrap-up

clipboard012017 Color Coded Reading Challenge

This was my fifth year for this challenge and thanks to Bev at My Reader’s Block for hosting. In an effort to read my own books as much as possible, I made a list at sign-up to keep me on task. That list is included in parentheses and the actual book read is included in bold. Result: 3 out 9 as planned, although 4 of the other 6 were my books, so I still mostly read my own books!

Rules: Read nine books in the following categories during 2017.

The Colors, my TBR hopefuls, and my actual reads:

1. A book with “Blue” or any shade of Blue in the title/on the cover. (A Beautiful Blue Death by Charles Finch) Indigo Dying (China Bayles, #11), by Susan Wittig Albert
