A New Reading Challenge and Book updates!

Woo hoo! I just got my copy of Jess Granger's Beyond the Shadows in the mail and I'm soo eager to start it. I'm currently enjoying Teresa D'Amario's Dark Succession (is there a Ryland wandering out there anywhere? hehe) and I'm pretty shocked that I like him even more Kieren from SheWolf (who was yummy all his own).

As if I didn't have enough reading challenges, I'm not adding on a new one which I'm hosting right here at AWD. The 2010 SFR Reading Challenge! I'm hoping this will help spread awareness of the genre a little bit and also to get some great reads spread around the blogsophere. New readers, new voices and new authors. Sounds like win win all around!

To join, hop on over to the sign up page here. Don't forget to check out the rules and grab a button before getting started! There's some explanation about the genre and a few links to some great titles to get your started reading. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone is reading out there!

As for me, I'm not in the habit of picking out my reads beforehand (which is strictly optional for the challenge, fyi ;-)) but I want to add a few TBR books I want to tackle (or at least try to) specifically for the challenge:

Beyond the Shadows by Jess Granger
Appleseed Vol. 3: The Scales of Prometheus
R. Garland Grey's Darkscape: The Rebel Lord
Speculative Sky by Clare Dargin (I LOVED her Cold Warriors book, which I may give a re-read for the challange)
Starjacked by Karin Shah
Games of Command by Linnea Sinclair
In Enemy Hands by K.S. Augustin
Royal Cargo by Ava James
Blood Sin by Toni V. Sweeney
Born of Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Guardian (Time Hunters #2) by Angela Knight

I'm starting a bit smallish with the "Moon Challenge". How about you?

Happy reading!

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
