Another Challenge Failure

I signed up for the All About Brontes Reading Challenge last year, and unfortunately, the deadline was June 30.

I only had 6 months to read or watch 3 to 5 Bronte books or movies.  I had planned on reading the following books and watching the following movies:

1.  Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (Book/Movie)
2.  Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (Book/Movie)
3.  The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte by Syrie James (Book)
4.  Emily’s Ghost: A Novel of the Bronte Sisters by Denise Giardina (Book)

I didn’t read any of these books or watch any of these movies.  I will try to read or watch some of these during the rest of the year.  Hooray for deadline extensions!

  • I’ve been failing more than I’ve been completing these days, Serena. Must be a sign I need to sign up for fewer challenges!

    • I’m going to have to agree with you on that one. I need to sign up for fewer challenges…that’s for sure.

  • I wouldn’t consider this one a failure at all. In fact, I think you did a great job!

  • Don’t feel too bad Serena. I don’t think I’m going to make the mark on any of my challenges this year. I’m doing horribly.

  • Oh well. Good thing they don’t charge a fine. I’m posting my mid-year update tomorrow and I’m dropping one. I got a little over-zealous at the beginning of the year…

    • Yeah, I think I was a bit overzealous as well. Ah well.

  • Better luck next time.

    • I really thought this one was a year long challenge when I signed up.

  • Well, you had the best of intentions. I’m glad you have a great attitude about it and plan to read the books anyway.

    • Lets see if I actually read any of these books first. I have so many goals, how will I ever keep track.

    The Brontes are my favorite authors and I do hope that you’ll get the chance to read their books in the future!

    Oops, I thought it was a year long challenge. I even read Wuthering Heights, I just haven’t gotten around to posting about it. I’m going to follow your suggestion and extend my deadline!

  • I think that’s very inspirational to extend the deadline. Since I’m so afraid of failing challenges that attitude just might be the cure for me! :–)
