  1. Nice! I'm interested in these challenges! :) Goodluck from a fellow mythology junkie!

  2. Ughhhh. I really, really love the sound of these challenges and totally want to sign up - but I'm already doing 10(!) and don't want to bite off more than I can chew. What to do, what to do...

  3. Girl! stop tempting me with challenges about re-tellings!!!

    :) You know it's one of my favoriest things eva!!

  4. Thanks for signing up! I hope you have fun reading retellings with me!

  5. Precious, Thanks! Good luck to you too if you decide to join in :)

    Belle, I'm the wrong person to offer advice, because I clearly have no self-control when it comes to signing up for challenges :P Are there books that fit these challenges that also apply for your other challenges?

    Alex, *whispers*join join join join*whispers* :D

    Debz, Thanks for hosting! :)

  6. I could do the mythology challenge on books I have planned to read in the upcoming year.

  7. haha yes, you would totally dominate the mythology challenge!

  8. You found some awesome challenges for next year! I think I'm going to try both of these!


It's all about friendly conversation here at Small Review :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Be sure to check back again because I do make every effort to reply to your comments here.

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!
