My Challenge

I’m not going to go all crazy and set an outrageous goal for myself in this challenge because I actually want to accomplish my reading goal…LOL If I finish those and still have time I’ll add them to the list. Most of my NetGalley ARCs have an expiration date on my e-reader so those are top priority. I’ll be updating my progress on here for now, not sure if I’ll do weekly updates just yet…depends on how good I’m doing! To those joining in on the challenge…Good Luck! <3 *Warning: The following list of titles is subject to change according to my mood but I’ll try my best to stick to it!

My Goal – 7/7 Completed

1. Alabaster Nights by Elle J. Rossi
2. House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter
3. The Scandalous Love of a Duke by Jane Lark
4. See You in Hell by Demelza Carlton
5. Sidekick by Auralee Wallace
6. Vampire’s Thirst by Cynthia Garner
7. Vampire Trouble by Sara Humphreys

  1. I’m in awe of your challenge stamina! You always seem to be doing one. But, at least I’m still ahead of you in the reading ARCs department because I’ve already tackled House of the Rising Sun. Hehe It was good, but I had problems connecting with the heroine. I think book 2 will be better. Good luck with your challenge, and happy Friday! πŸ™‚

  2. That’s a great list! I have a Nook HD so some of my Netgalley ARCs expired before I can read them. But then I learned to download the Kindle app, so now I read all my Netgalley ARCs from there and they don’t expire!! It’s less pressure, so maybe that can help you =) Good luck and happy reading!!
