↣↣Reading Challenge – GoodReads✌↢↢ Updated 09/13/14

I thought that I would try to keep up with my reading challenge here and on GoodReads.  The books won’t be in order as indicated and I’m going to try to update as I’m done reading.  I’ll include the completion date and a link to a review if I decide to post one.

If you’re on GoodReads and are interested in such challenges below is the link.  You may have to join the group to see the content of the challenge.  The group is Kindle Smut

9. (Much ado About Nothing) features a masquerade ball

Immortal Love (Crimson Romance) – [kindle edition] $3.82 / available on Kindle Unlimited
DNF’d the book. I do not like the writing style at all. I didn’t even really give it a chance since I only made it through about 9% of the book, but I was just getting very irritated, so I had to move on.  I may try and go back to it another time.  It’s shame because I thought that it had a promising story line.

So here I am, trying again and this time I’ll be trying the following 

Masquerade (Lovers Unmasked) – [kindle edition] $3.82 / Available on Kindle Unlimited – Currently reading – Completed 09/06/14.  May or may not review. 

10. (Much ado About Nothing) has MC couple who are ‘frenemies’ or hide true feelings by bickering

 

June = Hectic #summer #June

This will shape up to be a busy month for many reasons;

The World Cup starts Wednesday June, 12th.  Yes I’m excited.   Come on England!!!
I happen to have this day off, so while I pack, this will be playing in the back ground.  Pack you ask?

I have a vacation coming; Southern style.  Road Trip!
I’m traveling to Alabama, I’ve never been before and I am looking forward to it a great deal.  I don’t know how much reading I will be able to get done, but I will squeeze in as much as I can.  If anything it will be sane moments in what I expect will be a non stop series of events.

Book challenge, what the fuck am I thinking?
These are the “categories”.  I’m doing the challenge through the Kindle Smut group on Goodreads.  I thought that this would be a good way to expand my reading repertoire.  I’ve only got one book listed here, although I do have some books chosen, I will update some other time.
