Did you finish reading all the books on your spring reading list? If not, why not?

I listed 24 books. I read 13. Of course, I read more than that--much more than that--but I stuck with my list.

Did you stick to your original goals or did you change your list as you went along?

I did not change my list. If I listed it, then it counted for the challenge. If I didn't list it, I didn't count it towards this challenge.

What was your favorite book that you read this spring? Least favorite? Why?

I really enjoyed Maryrose Wood's The Mysterious Howling and Maureen Johnson's Suite Scarlett.

My least favorite was probably The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott.

Did you discover a new author or genre this spring?

A few of these were written by new-to-me authors. Maryrose Wood, Dia Reeves, Kelly O'Connor McNees.

What was your favorite thing about the challenge? The reading!
