And another challenge has appeared!! Last week’s challenge was to read a book by an Irish Author and I decided to read Driving Home for Christmas by Emma Hannigan after a recommendation. And I really enjoyed this book – which also means I have completed the challenge! YAAAY Me, especially after last week.
This week’s challenge will be a little bit out of my comfort zone, which will be interesting.
This one will tie in easy with my Netgalley challenge I set myself and I will read The Whispers (Whispers #1) by Lisa Unger and as it is a short story, I will see if I can read The Burning Girl (Whispers #2) by Lisa as well.
Eloise Montgomery discovers her amazing gift in the wake of tragedy in this first of three captivating e-shorts from award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Lisa Unger.
It’s a day like any other for Eloise Montgomery—until tragedy strikes. While she is recovering from a horrible accident that takes the lives of her husband and oldest daughter, and as she works to help her younger daughter move forward, Eloise experiences her first psychic vision. Though she struggles to understand her newfound gifts, Eloise finds a way use them to save lost women and girls—for whom her help may be the only way out…
From an author whose “gripping narrative and evocative, muscular prose” (Associated Press) have won her critical acclaim comes The Whispers: a story that delves deep into the human psyche and the mind of one unforgettable heroine.
Well as you might remember from my previous post last week I do a weekly #Sundaychallenge on Twitter organised by @thischickreads.
Unfortunately I failed to finish it this week! I was supposed to read a book by Christine Feehan, but sometimes books don’t fit in my mood – and let me tell you, this week my mood sucked a bit. I had lost my reading mojo – Couldn’t get into books and there is one Christmas book I am now reading for over a week! So yesterday I took drastic measures and I started to read Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell – as I have read something of Rainbow Rowell before I thought I could finish this in time. But me and the hubs had a day away yesterday and had to do needing shopping today, so I only managed to get almost halfway through the book – but this week I will make up for it!
Taddaaaa here is the new challenge!
So this week I am going to read Driving home for Christmas by Emma Hannigan
Wish me luck! What will you be reading this week? Are you going to participate in the #Sundaychallenge? Let me know in the comments below!
I thought I would make a lovely blog post about my participation in the #Sundaychallenge that is being hosted by @ThisChickReads on Twitter, check out her blog too, This Chick Reads!
I will try to make this a weekly post to promote this challenge and to let you know what I will be reading.
I have started a couple of weeks ago and every week there is a different challenge in reading a book, so far I have participated in a Comedy book, Christmas Book and a Book part of a Series. I have enjoyed every single one of them and I really wanted to share this with you.
Participating is easy, on Saturday or Sunday @ThisChickReads will let you know what the challenge is and then all you have to do is tweet her back and say you’re in! You can also already tell her what book you’ll be reading – the challenge starts on Sunday 1pm. The only time frame is that you finish it before the next challenge begins.
It will be a good way to either get you back into reading or, like I do, try to combine this challenge with my open Netgalley books. But it also might get you to pick up that certain book you’ve been wanting to read for ages!
Oh and there is a little price at the end of the challenge as well, if you’ve participated and finished the challenge you are in a draw to win prices! So that might be another little motivation to start and enjoy this #Sundaychallenge.
This week’s challenge will be Read a book by an author you’ve read before (any length, any format) Oh and check out the prize: Two participants will win ‘The New Mrs D’ by Heather Hill.
I will be reading Rocky Mountain Miracle by Christine Feehan. Christine is an author I’ve read before, I LOVE her Dark Carpathian series, and I can’t wait to read this one. It will also ties in with my own challenge; reading more Netgalley books I’ve got on my shelf.
Let me know in the comments if you will be participating in the #Sundaychallenge or are you already participating? And what will you be reading?
