Challenge Complete: Book Challenge by Erin 12.0

I thoroughly enjoy Erin's book challenge. It's always nice to do a challenge or two that will get me out of my mystery book zone. I've finished this round's basic challenge and am opting out of the bonus round--primarily because we now have to choose all books in the bonus from books chosen by others. I struggled with this when only half had to come from previously chosen books--because I try very hard to read books from the TBR mountains all over my house. So, I'm calling it a day and I wish good luck to all those heading into (or finishing!) the bonus round.

Here are this round's categories and my list of books read:
*5 points: Freebie – Read a book that is at least 200 pages
