I thought about attempting the next level, as I have at least two books on my TBR list that would fit the challenge, but this is the first time I finished the challenge, and I'm not sure I'll have enough time to get to the books. At least this way I know I've finished the challenge. I'm not sure I have a favourite book for this challenge, but I did enjoy participating in the challenge and exploring new authors.
