    1. Now if only I could make some progress on the What's in a Name challenge.

  2. Congrats on completing these challenges Marg. And WOW you've gotten through a lot of historical fiction this year. I think I have gotten into this genre a bit more over the past 6 months- i really enjoy it.

    1. If I had to pick just one genre, then it would most likely be historical fiction!

  3. Congratulations on finishing the challenges Marg. I've been forgetting to put up my links for the HF challenge but I will get to it soon. It's my only challenge this year so far...

  4. Good job on finishing 2 challenges already! That's fantastic progress.

  5. Congratulations my friend! I am so happy to hear that you have finished 2 challenges! That is awesome!

  6. I have no idea where I am with challenges. I sort of have just been reading whatever lately! Congrats on finishing. :)

    1. It shouldn't surprise you to know that I keep track on the spreadsheet!

  7. Congrats on finishing two challenges. This has definitely been just the thing to get my ass in gear to complete mine. I'm so far behind on all of mine.

    Happy reading sweets and good job!

    1. Thanks Rowena. I have a couple of challenges that I am not doing so well on.

  8. Congratulations, Marg. Fantastic achievement. Are you planning to post a review of Lucy Sussex Thief of Lives?

  9. Congrats on completing the Aussie Author Challenge Marg - your ongoing support of the challenge, including thought provoking guest post this year is very much appreciated. :)
