Goodreads Challenge, 2018, 2019 and beyond!

As some of you might recall, back in 2015, I posted plans to read 100 books as part of 2016’s Goodreads challenge. 😱 Because of the delay of the Château Enginerd project and the MBA, I was able to finish 60 entries. I set a more realistic goal of 55 for 2017, and got to […]

Goodreads Challenge, 2016, 2017 and beyond!

MrsEnginerd’s 2016 Year in Review

This year was riddled with so much bad luck that even the monthly reads for the blog ended on low viewership. The reader fatigue on the new house escapades alone made for the slump in hits, but the poems and reviews are still holding strong. We had over 5,000 hits total for over 300 posts. […]
