        2. Congrats on completing your challenge!! It looks like you really like the Agatha Raisin series. I'm a mystery lover, but have yet to read any novels from this series, so will have to give it a try. :-)

          1. Agatha Raisin is my go-to comfort read. I think I enjoy them so much because the audiobook narrator, Penelope Keith, is so wonderful!

        3. Wow! You did so awesome on all your challenges! Sorry I don't have a wrap-up post for the Series Starter/It's New to Me challenge, I'll try to get one up tomorrow. I probably won't host any challenges next year, other than maybe trying the sequels challenge again, at least for myself. Thanks so much for participating in my challenges this year!
