It’s the last day in January and about mid-month, I decided to start a reading challenge for this year. I am inviting all my readers to join in this challenge through the year. I love to read and I love to find new books to read, which is why the 2014 Reading Challenge came to be. Reading is a way for me to take a moment for me, in my busy life, I don’t do a lot for myself, but taking a few moments to lose myself in a book is sometimes all I need.
As each month comes to a close, I want to hear all about what you have read (to inspire new books for me) and share what I have read. I am also planning a giveaway at the end of each month, that has something to do with reading. It may be one of the books I have read, reading accessory, or who knows what else. Today I am giving away my favorite reading device. Before we get to that, I want to share the books I read since I started the challenge.
A Woman and Her God. This was my morning devotion and it was so inspiring. Many of today’s most extraordinary Christian women communicators join together to impart the wisdom God has given them–and to help women realize all God intended for them.
OutPost is the second in a trilogy (so be sure to check out Enclave first). After reading the first, I snatched up Outpost because I had to know what happened when Deuce and Fade went topside. Aligning with unlikely allies, this book shows how Duece has to adjust to a world she has never known. Once considered an adult, she is now considered a “brat” (child). The freaks have grown smarter and Deuce wants to help make sure Salvation is safe.
In Horde, the monsters are at the gates and they are staying. Deuce and her partners from the previous books have to set out with the odds against them. That’s something Deuce is used to. She faces the challenge with her companions to save the people she loves. As they help not only their own settlement, but surrounding settlements, they realize this is going to be a war.
The Fault In Our Stars is a book that will make you laugh and cry. I fully admit to sobbing during the book. Hazel has always been terminal when it came to her tumor. She is resigned to that and lives a life of complacency…until Augustus Waters. Her life takes a turn, she never expected and we get to follow along the beautify and heart breaking journey.
I can’t begin to say enough about the books I read. I highly suggest picking them up or adding them to your kindle library! Don’t have a Kindle? I can help with that. As we end the first month, I want to give the gift of reading of a Kindle Paperwhite to one of my readers.
One reader will win a Kindle Paperwhite to make it easy to take the reading challenge on the road! Enter using the giveaway tools form below (it may take a minute to load)
**Giveaway is provided by A Daily Dose of Toni. Must be 18 and in the US to enter. Giveaway will end and winner will be announced at the next month’s “share your reads” post, the last day of February!**
