Current Read

Warrior (Blades of the Rose #1) by Zoe Archer — If the story keeps up, I found a new favorite series!

Challenges Completed (2)

I finished the Fantasy Challenge from Darlyn’s Fantasy Reading Challenge.  You can read my wrap-up post here. I also finished the Support Your Local Library Challenge.  I read 100 books from the library.  Unfortunately, the Omaha library can’t hold a candle to Allen County’s.  Oh well!  Now I really have to get moving on some of the other challenges (*cough* Amazon and SciFi *cough*).

Books I Gave Up On (3 books)

The Perfect Bride by Eileen Putman — Just couldn’t get over the arrogance of the male lead.  He pissed me off within the first 30 pages and I just couldn’t get over it.

When in Rome by Gemma Townley — I felt like I was reading Bridget Jones’ Diary… and not in a good way.  Gave it 50 pages, but just couldn’t seem to enjoy it.

Love’s First Bloom by Delia Parr — Wasn’t feeling the Christian historical fiction


Twenty-right books read and reviewed.  Two readalongs sorta done.  (I finished the Sense and Sensibility, but lost steam for the Harry Potter one.)  Two challenges completed.  Another challenge started (Fables Series).   A Stampin’ Up club joined.  A whole month of meals planned, cooked, and documented.

Wow!  It’s been a huge month.  I’ve done so much.  Now I need to get moving on next month.
