  1. The Full House challenge looks like all kinds of fun. I'm with you on Fire & Hemlock. Diana Wynne Jones is an all time fave. & Holly Blackkk is dark & imaginative & brilliant. She never disappoints! Hope you enjoy :) Happy New Year!

  2. You are so organized! I feel like I should go backwards and see how many challenges I happened to complete. I read a ton on Netgalley and Edelweiss and also a lot of debuts.

  3. You have quite a lot of challenges there, but it looks like you have the line up of books for each one! I hope you enjoy doing them as well. I didn't sign up for any this year but I will be trying out buddy reading for the first time instead ^^

  4. The full house challenge looks so fun! I might have to start participating in challenges just to get through my TBR faster! And I definitely need to participate in the netgalley and edelweiss one.
