How did I do on my hilarious summer reading list?

At the beginning of the summer I published a list of books I wanted to read this summer. 

How did I do? I did read over 30 books, just not all the books on this list. I read 34 books, four were rereads so I figure that I just made my actual goal of 30! Ha!  

In addition, I blogged about every single book I read... a first for me. I learned something about myself from doing this.  If I sit down to review a book within two days of finishing a book, I can do it.  The longer I wait to write it, the harder it is. Click on the hyperlinks to see my reviews.

  1. I used to read the Narnia books the first week of every summer (from around 5th grade to my final year of college).
