Hey everyone, Slick Dungeon here, hoping January was a fantastic month for you and that February will be even better.
Last month I put out three challenges for this year, one for books, one for movies and one that combined books, movies and role playing games. I wanted to take today to see if anyone has done any of the challenges and update everyone on my own progress.
As a reminder, if you complete any of the three challenges and talk about it on your blog, I will review anything in that category that you want me to and post that review on my blog with a link to your blog.
Don’t worry if you haven’t started, each of my challenges is only 12 items long and there is still plenty of the year to go.
In case you want to participate and still need the challenges, just take a look at this post and download yourself a neat little PDF or three.
Now, the moment you have all been waiting for, how did I, Slick Dungeon do on my own challenges in January? Let’s find out.
Challenge 1: Book Challenge
This one took me the longest to complete but it was well worth the time. The first box on this one was the book at the very bottom of your TBR list. For me that was a book called The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How it Changed America by David Hajdu. You can read my review of it here.
Challenge 2: Movie Challenge
This challenge item led me down a long strange trip to watch a movie called Butter on the Latch which involved absolutely no butter or latches anywhere. It was an experimental film and while I didn’t exactly understand the experiment, I think it’s always good to branch out of your own boundaries now and again and I absolutely support independent film. You can see my review of it here.
Challenge 3: Read-Watch-Play Challenge
I’ll be honest, I got lucky here. The challenge item was to read a book with a dungeon in it. It just so happened that a book I was enjoying and going to review anyway happened to have a dungeon in it. The book is called Overworld, the Dragon Mage Saga, book 1. It was a pretty cool read that was reminiscent of Ready Player One and you can read my review of it here.
Well, that’s three out of three for January. I have no idea how February will go but here is what I will be attempting.
- A book recommended by a friend
- Three movies by the same director
- Watch a movie with a dragon in it
Good luck to the rest of you out there and if you have decided to participate, feel free to let me know how it is going in the comments.
