Twenty Ten Reading Challenge Completed!

Yay! I completed the Twenty Ten Reading Challenge this month! I think my favorite book out of the twenty read for this challenge was The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I discovered some really cool authors this year through this challenge too: Zetta Elliott's A Wish After Midnight and A.S. Peterson's The Fiddler's Gun were both wonderful surprises. My least favorite book out of this group was Faithful Heart by Al Lacy. I really enjoyed this challenge! It was more complicated than I expected to fit books into each category. Thanks for hosting Bart!
