2010 Challenge Wrap Up...

I know, 2010s already been over for twelve days, but it's time for my end of year look back on all the challenges that I participated in.
Which means I get to share my accomplishments and failures with all my lovely blog readers. So without further mumblings on my behalf.
I'm also working on a post summoning up what my favorite reads of the last year were and plenty of reviews to keep my blog relatively active in the new year.

100+ Reading Challenge 2010
I knew I could definitely finish this challenge because for me a hundred books in a year is quite easy, but I never dreamed that I would end up reading over 200.
I still haven't made up my mind if I'm going to participate in this challenge this year; it was fun, but tedious to keep updated.

Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge 2010
Okay I was definitely worried about the library challenge. Because I was thinking what on earth am I going to read since it felt like I had read just about everything my library had to offer. Luckily, they had more books that I wanted to read or re-read than I had originally thought they did. Thus I ended up more then exceeding what I was shooting for in this challenge (which was 75 library books) and ended up reading 121 library books this past year.

2010 Debut Author Challenge
Alas, I failed most horrible on this challenge and only read 5 debut author books. *hangs head in shame*
While I might not have done to well in this challenge, the ones I did read were simply amazing and I absolutely cannot wait to read the next books in each of the different series.
I honestly don't think I'm going to participate in this challenge again, at least not this year. It was fun, but too stressful.

The Marple Poirot Holmes Challenge
I am ashamed to admit that I failed this challenge. Why? Because I ended up forgetting that I had signed up for it. I finished the Holmes part of the challenge, but could never decide what Poirot and Miss Marple books I wanted to read, then I read other books and just forgot.
If this one's going on again this year I'm definitely going to try again.

I do believe that I have covered every single challenge I joined last year. I managed to finish two out of the four challenges that I signed up for. I'm looking forward to all the challenges that are being hosted in the new year.
