*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.
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…
