Hello there readers and followers!
So this is the end of the 30 Day Book Challenge!
On Wednesday, 9th April 2014 I announced that I was going to do the 30DBC with my fellow blogger and friend, Rhey of Sunshine. Back when I announced it, I knew that this was going to need some careful planning, especially with my day job and my other time-consuming hobbies. Now that it has come to an end, the feeling is bittersweet. Sweet because, firstly, I’m partially thankful it is over and I can take a break, but bitter because I will no longer be in the routine of writing another challenge – because there are no more challenges.
I have to firstly say that I am absolutely proud of Rhey of Sunshine. I am proud that, in her even busier schedule than me, she has managed to come out with such wonderful posts on her blog. Some of her posts are so detailed and well-researched, I can only admire and aspire to write with such care as she does.
Secondly, now that it is all done, I would like to recap all my choices for each day, so you can get an overlook of how it went.
