2015 Reading Challenge Link up Party #2


P1120383 - Copy 1

**Link up party is at the bottom of this post**


this party I only have one book to contribute. I’ve found it hard to read and I’m not sure if its because of the book itself, or because I’ve read more books last month than I normally do and I’ve had enough!

the book, once finished will go in under ‘non fiction’, and is the memoir of an Australian woman who moves to a farm. I thought it would be a fun read while I was farm sitting, but as I mentioned, I’ve struggled with it. I will finish it however!


I have modified the list to suit my tastes this year, choosing about 30 of the 50 categories. reading 30 books in a year will be a challenge in itself for me as some years I may only read up to 5 books!. subject to how the year goes, next year I may challenge myself to complete the full list!.

Now over to you :-

Welcome to the 2015 Reading Challenge Party based on the list devised by Popsugar.

Each fortnight we’ll share what we’ve read during the past two (or three!) weeks based on the categories set on the challenge list. We can use this link up to find more books to add to our reading pile, ask for ideas or suggestions for categories we may not be familiar with and read reviews of the books by participants. We might also gain a few more readers or cyber buddies along the way.

RULES (cos there needs to be a few!)

  • Link directly to your reading challenge post please.
  • Try to include photos of book covers, but if you can’t, at least give both the name and the author of the books you’re reviewing. Also indicate which category the book falls under ( feel free to double up, if you’re not a huge reader)
  • Keep a tally of how many you’ve read vs how many to go e.g. 3/50
  • Take some time to check out the other blogs in the party and comment, you might gain a new cyber buddy!.
  • Remember to link back to this party in your post, and feel free to grab the button over there on the right hand side of the screen.
  • Links that do not follow the rules or appear to be spam will be deleted.

  2. Your non-fic choice looks interesting. I have dozens to choose from for that category but have chosen one set in Venice. I’m struggling a bit with some of the categories but I’m getting there. Looking forward to seeing what you read next 🙂

  3. This sounds like a fun challenge! I haven’t read any of the books in your stack… I’ll be interested to hear what you think. I like reading books about people who live on the land or become self sufficient, hope the Farm Gate one improves for you!
