March 2015 Reading Challenge link party

The link up is at the bottom of this post.

Welcome to March’s reading challenge link up party.

As mentioned in a previous post, I have decided to only host this party monthly, due to commitments that I currently have.

Now, what have I read this past month?!. Well, one book wont get mentioned – a free 40 page book from itunes!. it wouldnt fit any catergory, lol!!.

oh dear, just looking at my records it seems it’s only one book again this time!. I blame house hunting and all that entails!.

This books fits in under the ‘love triangle’ category.


I haven’t read anything by this author before. One of the book shops I like to frequent had books by her on special, so I had brought 2 as they were half price. I have to admit, I wasn’t going to buy 2, but when reading the back on this it mentioned ‘love triangle’, I thought ah ha!, I need one of those!.

It took me a few chapters to get into it, but once I was there, I loved it. I wont give the game away, but I ended up really enjoying how the author wrote the love triangle angles, if that makes sense!. I really enjoyed the guts of the story, but found the end was a little flat. It kinda left me thinking it was an afterthought to the main idea for the story. still, it was a good read and I look forward to reading the other book I have of hers.

I’m off to Australia in 2 weeks and should have plenty of reading of time. I don’t plan to take any physical books. I will read what’s on my ipad, what my sister has and borrow her library card and raid the local library.

 Here’s my record so far –

I have modified the list to suit my tastes this year, choosing about 30 of the 50 categories. reading 30 books in a year will be a challenge in itself for me as some years I may only read up to 5 books!. subject to how the year goes, next year I may challenge myself to complete the full list!.

Welcome to the 2015 Reading Challenge Party based on the list devised by Popsugar.

Each month we’ll share what we’ve read during the past month based on the categories set on the challenge list. We can use this link up to find more books to add to our reading pile, ask for ideas or suggestions for categories we may not be familiar with and read reviews of the books by participants. We might also gain a few more readers or cyber buddies along the way.

RULES (cos there needs to be a few!)

  • Link directly to your reading challenge post please.
  • Try to include photos of book covers, but if you can’t, at least give both the name and the author of the books you’re reviewing. Also indicate which category the book falls under ( feel free to double up, if you’re not a huge reader)
  • Keep a tally of how many you’ve read vs how many to go e.g. 3/50
  • Take some time to check out the other blogs in the party and comment, you might gain a new cyber buddy!.
  • Remember to link back to this party in your post, and feel free to grab the button over there on the right hand side of the screen. ** I still need to change the wording on the button, now the party is only monthly!.
  • Links that do not follow the rules or appear to be spam will be deleted.

please join in! –
