Have you started thinking about what your reading goals are going to be next year? I have, and one of the things I have been thinking about doing is joining in some of the challenges that are going on around blog land. I decided very early on this year to resist the urge to join in because it is enough of a challenge for me to manage my library list usually, but if the challenge can fit in with my other reading goals, then I might join in!
The first one I am joining in on is the Romance Reading Challenge that is being hosted by Naida.
Now, I read a fair proportion of romance as it is, so what I wanted to do is tie it in with some of my other reading resolutions. One of these will again be to try and read some of the books that I have gone and spent my hard earned cash on but haven't yet read! In order to complete the challenge you have to read (and review!)5 books next year, so below is a list of five books that I have bought, but still haven't read yet, despite the fact that I really, really want to! Believe me when I say that there are plenty of other books that I could have chosen from for this challenge too!
The Huntress by Susan Carroll - I was so excited about this book coming out in June 2007. Still haven't read it!
The Wild Hunt by Elizabeth Chadwick - I have loved the two books that I have read by Chadwick and so want to now start working my way through her backlist. I was so excited when I won this on Ebay because it is a book that is a bit hard to come by at this point in time, although from what I understand this book, and the two that follow it, are going to be reissued soon.
My review is now up here.
Warprize by Elizabeth Vaughan - I've actually got both this book and Warsworn here to read.
Review now up here
Lessons of Desire by Madeline Hunter - The first book in this series was the first book that I finished in 2007. Despite having preordered this, still havent read it!
My review is now up here
Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas - What exactly am I waiting for?
Review is now up here
I'll have one book in reserve as well...just in case!
Lover Unbound by JR Ward - Shhh! Don't tell anyone but I had this one preordered as well and haven't read it yet.
