Well this has been a very interesting month! I have been very busy reading for challenges, leisure, and some ARC’s. For most of July over at Goodreads Wobble Challenge we were taking part in the book olympics. If you are interested in the exact details of that challenge click HERE.
For a brief summary there were five events, Title Relay, Page Jumping, Book into the Distance, Fight Club, and Create a Chariot as well as bonus rounds. It required bunches of reading and lots of teamwork. We rocked it! It also beefed up my reading for the month to a grand total of 7o! How did I do it? Lots and lots of caffeine and late nights! Also, when we switched to our current challenge, Wheel-A-Thon, which lasts 4 weeks and page count is not a factor so I switched it up to knock out some novellas.
Do you want to know why I am just in love with these challenges that I am in? I am forced to read books I would have never before considered and it has been the best thing ever!! I have so many new authors to follow and admire! It has been such a great experience and I would challenge any one of you to consider doing something similar because it truly does test your genre mettle.
So what book was my top favorite?? That is seriously hard to choose BUT I have to go with Moon Called by Patricia Briggs:
I read this book because we were doing a title relay and I was looking for a book that started with “moon,” little did I know that Patricia Briggs was one of the most hilarious and creative writers! I was living under a rock apparently. Anyhow, I enjoyed this book so much that I read the rest of the series, except #7 I think. I managed to throw the books into the challenge any way I could. The one’s that did not fit the challenge I read anyhow. I LOVED all of them! I am so excited about the newest Mercy Thompson novel, Silence Fallen, coming out March 07, 2017. I also started reading more of Patricia Briggs works as well. Love her writing! Love it!
