Picture Book | 2K18 CHALLENGES

So last year, I fell in love with picture books! Like crazy in love with them! I don’t know why or what exactly started this obsession but I’m loving it!

This is something new that I stumbled on and since I’m currently obsessing over picture books. Then why not feed the obsession more?Screen Shot 2017-10-12 at 8.44.49 AM

Anyway, this is hosted by BlBooks.  According to her:

Goal: To have adults read more picture books.
# of books: minimum of 6

Option 1: Read six picture books of your choice.
Option 2: Choose one author to focus on. Perhaps read through an entire author’s work.
Option 3: Read as few as six, or as many as you like, from the checklist below

I think I’l go with Option 3. Since I’m a rebel and will do whatever I want!


I will replace the _ with an X or a ✔ when I finish reading a book. If you list the books you read, that may help other people decide what to read.

I’m not really sure how much I’m going for. But I think I’ll try to get each of the alphabet first, followed by author, followed by the bonus material at the end.


Picture Book Challenge

-The End-

I really loved this challenge. Honestly, sometimes you just need a break from all the young adult angst and adult seriousness. Reading picture books is simply perfect. Definitely a challenge I’m keeping!

Safe to say that I exceeded my expectations!
