Classics Club – December Check-In

16 Dec

classics club check inI don’t normally do these posts (and I’ll readily admit that I’ve been really bad about working on this challenge), but when the update post showed up in my inbox this morning, I figured what the heck. Mostly because this month has actually been semi-successful on the reading/listening front when it comes to this challenge.

In the last two months, I’ve finished up the Lord of the Rings trilogy that I had listed in my classic scifi/fantasy category. however, I have to admit, I can’t say that I was a huge fan. I enjoyed the Hobbit, as well as the first book in the trilogy – but The Two Towers and Return of the King were just too much for me. I’ll be the horrible person who admits that they liked the movies better – in general, they flowed better. I’m almost halfway through listening to Brave New World (in my dystopia category). I should have it finished in the next couple of days. And to finish out the year, I have Slaughterhouse Five lined up for my next listen.

Overall Challenge Update: Overall I’ve read 14 of the 50 books in my original challenge (16 out of 52 if you consider the Lord of the Rings Trilogy as 3 books, not 1). Although, I am WAYYY behind on writing reviews, so that is going to be my goal for 2016 – getting caught up on those, as well as continuing to read my books. I do need to get my ass into gear because September 2017 is rapidly approaching and that is my end goal date.

Cheers to a solid 2015 reading year and looking forward to 2016!
