#ReadHarder2017

I was I had this book last year for the #readharder2017 challenge. Read a book set within 100 miles of your location. It‘s set in Louisville, KY during a snow storm we had a few years ago. Evi is a widow whose officer husband died 16 days before the birth of their child. Now she is developing feelings for his adopted brother. Romantic heartwarming stories aren‘t generally my thing but I‘m liking it so far. #blitsy #blittens

Turns out I DID finish #LitsyAtoZ! (Mixed author and title of course) I had forgotten about some changes I made. It's the #readharder2017 and #litsyreadingchallene2017 #lrc I'm missing 2 from each. Oh well! I just didn't feel like reading those last books, when it came down to it. #bujo

Andrew65 Well done 🙌 2y
MinDea Nice! I didn't complete it. I love all the bullet journaling you do. I always create the pages but then never go back and fill it out! 2y

Not a bad way to finish the year at all!

This was my travel memoir for #ReadHarder2017 and I probably wouldn‘t have read it otherwise. I‘m not a huge fan of memoirs or nonfiction in general. That said, I was very entertained by this book. Bryson is very funny and I enjoyed traveling around Great Britain through him.

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

I did complete my #ReadHarder2017 challenge! This is one of my favorite challenges because it makes me look for books I might not otherwise read, and I often wind up loving them. 💕

WarpedSweetness Awesome! I'm doing the challenge for 2018 for the first time. I'm really looking forward to it. 2y
AmandaL @WarpedSweetness It's a great challenge! It makes me read books that are out of my wheelhouse. I may not love every book I read for it, but I love what I learn, and the perspective I gain. I can't wait to see what some of your choices are! 2y

Ended this year with Agatha and 5 books above my goal! I enjoyed participating in my first reading challenges this year #litsyatoz #litsyreadingchallenge #readharder2017. So many great books were read, and even more were added to my TBR pile. I happily blame this community for that. 😉 Here‘s to 2018! Happy New Year, Littens!!! 🎉

Listening to the last book on my list for the #ReadHarder2017 challenge. I‘m passing this one off as a travel memoir 🤷🏽‍♀️

State of Siege | Mahmoud Darwish

I read this slim work of #poetry as one of the last categories for the #ReadHarder2017 challenge. The task is to read a translated poetry book that is NOT about love. So I went ahead and chose a work about war. Mahmoud Darwish was a celebrated Lebanese poet and this is one of his few works translated into English. Some lines of poem really resonated with me while others fell almost comically flat, which I‘m blaming on the translation. 3/5 stars.

parttimedomestic If you ever feel like trying another of his, I really enjoyed 2y
cocomass @parttimedomestic added to my TBR. I‘d love to read something else of his. 2y

And it‘s only fair to share the fails along with the successes. Sorry Book Riot, my reading just took me in different directions than you this year.

Nebklvr A reader goes where she must.... 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Nebklvr Isn‘t that the truth, my reading led me to more escapism reading/rereading like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter and my non-fiction tending to lean toward current US issues, race, immigration, health care, US history, and Russia. I can‘t imagine why....🙄 2y
Nebklvr @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Hard telling 🤐. I coincidentally did the same 2y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Nebklvr Yea, I think it was the year for that. Sadly... 2y
diovival Me too. I'm going to need these hashtags. 😂 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @diovival Go for it! It‘s been fun to look back at the year and see what worked for me, what didn‘t, and why. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @diovival I should try to write up my pop-sugar fail too yet this week. 2y
