I'd slated to read Bully by Penelope Douglas and Endure by Carrie Jones this month. I only succeeded in reading Bully. That puts me at 50%, which in my book is an "F". :(
Since I set my goal at Level 3, I get a free pass...which sadly I'm using in the first month! I will have to use one of my extra credits to make it up. (I have 2 of those)
I'm going to attempt to read Endure tomorrow...I'll update here if I get it finished.

Just like in college...I finished my Reading Assigment. Endure was a fabulous ending to the Need Series. And I get to keep my Pass and Extra Credit for this challenge!! YAY!!!
I've shown my shelves some love - my digital shelves anyway. ;) I've read 13 books so far! You can click here to check out the books and their reviews on Goodreads.
As part of this challenge, I budgeted $10/month for books. I'll have a budget post in Feburary so y'all can see how I'm working my system. ;) But I've spent $3 of my $10 so far in January. But per my system, I may or may not pick up some books tomorrow.
Also, I created ways in which I could earn books. For every 3 books I read from my shelves, I earn a book. For every week that I exercise 5 days, I earn a book. And for every 5000 words I write on my book, I earn a book. So:
13 Books = 4 Books Earned
2 Weeks of 5 days of Exercise = 2 Books Earned
As for writing, I've barely written 3000 words the entire month! That's been a total fail! But I WILL do better in February!
So far, I've read 20 books for COYER. I haven't posted all my reviews yet, so I better get busy! I'm proud of the number of books I've cleaned off my ereaders, though. :)
I haven't read any of the books I'd slated for the LGBT Challenge. I'll work on this in February.
I've read Daimon and Half-Blood - which fulfill the requirements for this challenge. Half-Blood was the only one on my list, but since Daimon was a prequel, I *had* to read it too. :) So that's one of my list and an extra one to boot!
Not too bad, eh? Hopefully, I can do even better in February!
