You read a lot of books for this challenge. I am impressed with how many books you read of many different types. Looks like you are doing well on your challenges. Even re-reading a lot of books.

That's an impressive list!
I liked Frozen a lot but I found Pirate Fairy a bit too watery.

You really did read a lot of books! Five Children and It was fun, wasn't it? I first saw a television production of it while living in London, then had to find the book.
