I've finished the Random Reading Challenge. This Challenge took place over a year and I chose to read a book every month and spread it out over the whole year. I really enjoyed having a random number picked for me and then going to count out what my book was going to be. Each month I was so excited to read my book. It was a fun little thrill! These are the books I read and I'll be watching to see if the challenge will continue for another year because if it does, I'll be there!

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Catholic, with Asperger's, who reads and writes as her obsession. These are the ramblings of the books I read.
I sometimes go through stages of "genre love", I'm addicted to mystery thrillers, Catholic theology, memoirs, 20th century Chinese historical fiction & Victorian fiction and non-fiction, but you'll find I read an even wider variety of books than that, both fiction and non-fiction. I have a teensy fascination with macabre non-fiction books about death and anything about insane asylums.
I also tend to post a lot of reviews of juvenile/teen books, with a nod towards what parents can expect to find that might or might not be objectionable.
