New Year’s Reading Resolution Challenge — Wrap Up

By Joyweesemoll @joyweesemoll

Graphic for New Year's Resolution Reading ChallengeThe New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge, inspired me! I hope you found it energizing, too.

I wrote about the first few book reviews that showed up for this challenge earlier: .

Here’s what’s come in since then.

From Create with Joy:

  • Unglued Devotional by Lysa TerKeurst. A 60-day devotional for when “you are in a place where raw emotions regularly blindside you.”
  • The Art Of Getting Well by David Spero. A book “written to provide those who are chronically ill and the people who care for them with an empowering wellness tool.”

From Avid Series Reader:

  • The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. “Read her book for a fresh start to a new year.”
  • Unclutter Your Life in One Week by Erin Rooney Doland. “Since the title starts with ‘Unclutter’, I expected an in-depth book on the nature of clutter, useful tips not only on getting rid of clutter, but on staying free of clutter. I was disappointed.”

From Joy’s Book Blog:

  •  Book Review: Smart Chefs Stay Slim by Allison Adato. “This will appeal to anyone who doesn’t want to give up good eating in pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.”
  • Book Review: Thin for Life by Anne Fletcher. “Anne Fletcher decided that a better approach would be to examine people who successfully lost weight and kept it off.”
  • Book Review: Crafting a Life by Donald M. Murray. “The early chapters helped me establish my new writing habit — 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. I’m not perfect, but much better than I’ve ever been before.”

Snowball of Come, Sit by the Hearth… talked about all three of her New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge books in one post: BOOK REVIEWS. Sort Of. In it, we get to see her exciting progress at the beginning of the year with getting her poetry out there using these three books:

  • Create Your Incredible Year - Leonie Dawson
  • The Poet’s Market - Robert Lee Brewer, Ed.
  • How to Publish Your Poetry - Helene Ciaravino

I’ll leave the link-up open, New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge — Review Links, for late-breaking reviews, but the challenge is officially over. Thanks everyone for reading, visiting, chatting, discussing, and hopping. It was a fun event.

I’d love to do this again next year so please let me know your suggestions — including the possibility that ending it on January 31 is too soon.
