Review Copy Cleanup 4.0: Week One Update

February 9, 2014 reading challenges 8

Review Copy Cleanup*See my starting line post here!*

So… the first week of February has come and gone, ALREADY and I am actually quite happy with my progress. I managed to finish two review copies and am about 40% through another.

Uninvited  Witchstruck  Forever

First up this week was Uninvited. I was about a third of the way through when the challenge started and to be honest, wasn’t entirely thrilled by it. BUT I plugged through and ended up liking it well enough. Unfortunatly, I think this was a case of high expectations and it fell short of what I was hoping. I did still enjoy it and will be reading the second book but I had a few issues with it. I posted my review last Monday so you can see that here if you are interested.

Immediately after finishing Uninvited I started Witchstruck. I just recently got approved on Edelweiss for this one, but since it was released a few months ago and the second books release is coming up shortly, I pushed it up on the reading list. I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I started this one but seeing how I’ve been loving historical fiction, particularly with paranormal elements I was hoping I would love it. AND IT DID! Although I had to Google a lot when I started because I really knew next to nothing about the Tudor era, I thought it was a great read and am eagerly awaiting the second. My review will be up this week for it.

I also started Forever which is the final book in the Temptation trilogy. I’m hosting a tour spot this coming Friday (VALENTINES DAY!!) and I will be posting my review then. I’m only about 40% of the way through, but I will be finishing it today. I’m not saying anything about this one so far except read this series if you love contemporary romance! It’s very, very different from a lot of the contemporary YA out there in that it features an Amish community and a young ‘English’ girl who falls in love with an Amish boy. It’s a wonderful story of forbidden romance and I’ve been head of heels for this couple since I read the first two last Summer!

So there are my accomplishments for the week. I have to say, I’m really pleased with my progress. If I can manage to keep this pace up then I will finish RCC a happy person! Now if only the Black Dagger Brotherhood can stop distracting me…

      GOSH! So hard Pamela! Except now for me strangely enough it’s older books on the TBR *coughs* Black Dagger Brotherhood. Oh well, as long as I get through the new ones I will be a happy camper!

    I only finished 2 books from my tbr pile for the Review Copy Cleanup haha. I hope Uninvited doesn’t disappoint me! The cover looks really cool. I know nothing about it though haha. I got approved for Witchstruck too but a long time ago…unfortunately the galley expired before I could read it. I’m glad you liked it! I’ll def. buy it and read it sometime.
