Winter's Respite Readathon: The Picks

Readathon Picks


Here's my list of possible suspects for the next 2-weeks:


1st Up was War of the Heart (A Snow Globe Christmas) by Jenna Victoria. Finished it and reviewed in earlier post. Visit post here.

2nd Up is Grey by E.L. James. The subject and genre is a complete departure from the last book I read, War of the Heart, but it does have a Christian in it! I've been curious about this one for some time and decided it was time to see if the story could hold up to the success of the previous ones. So far, I'm not impressed…

3rd Up is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I know what you're thinking: What's taken you so long to get around to this one, Suzanne? Everyone has read this already, eons ago! And that is exactly why it's on my list, thank you very much.

4th Up is And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. This one's been sitting around my house gathering dust, watching other books come and go. While I thoroughly enjoyed both Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, for some reason, I pass over this one every time I'm looking for something to read. Well, no more excuses… unless I just can't get to it before the 2 weeks are up. We'll just have to see, won't we?

I'll be mighty impressed with myself if I get through all of these, 'cause this author (yeah, that's me) has her own writing to do. I'm editing my 2nd novel to send to my editor. Wish me luck!

What have I written? I'm glad you asked. Check out Saving Toby here.

#HS Readathon Wrap Up

Time to wrap up another Seasons of Reading readathon, and it's no surprise to me that I didn't manage to get even half way through my TBR. In fact, I deviated from it—a book I'd put on hold at the library came in.

Here's what I did read: Her Best Laid Plans by Cara McKenna and the defection, God-Shaped Hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo.

Her Best Laid Plans was a novella, a quick bit of satisfying romance with a heavy dollop of steam. I hadn't expected the story to be so sexual, though I should've, especially knowing McKenna's previous work—but the prior stuff I've read by this author were longer novels where sexual scenes felt more in balance with other themes in the story. In this case, because the story was so short, I wasn't mentally prepared for the depth of the steam that the story contained. Despite that, Cara McKenna knows her way around storytelling. Jamie is a cool, independent American young woman off on holiday and seeking adventure in Ireland whe…
