2015 Reading Challenge Series

I should have posted this yesterday, but I have an excuse. I only saw the linkup as exciting this morning – my bad. So far I’m 9 down (but I’ve read a lot, lot more):


A book with more than 500 pages

A classic romance

unbroken*A book that became a movie – Laura Hillenbrand Unbroken (5*, he was amazing & the research impeccable, the words painted a picture)





A book published this year

A book with a number in the title

*A book by a female author – Karen Kingsbury’s Angels Walking (3 ½*, it wasn’t quite as good as the Frank Peretti/Ashton novels)

*A book with a one word title – Monica Ferris’ Cutwork (3 ½*, part of her needlework mystery series)

the will

*A book set in a different country – Kristen Ashley The Will (4*, but I must admit it’s not hard to find a book not set in New Zealand) I also chose this for the cover, but something else will come along to fit that category.




nora roberts land

*A popular author’s first book – Ava Miles’ Nora Roberts Land (4*)




*A nonfiction book – The Countess of Carnavon’s Lady Almina & the Real Downton Abbey (3 ½*)

A book by an author you love but not read yet

A Pulitzer prize winning book

A book based on a true story

A book at the bottom of your to read pile

A book more than 100 yrs old

A book based entirely on its cover

*A memoir – Cary Elwes’ As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride (4*, as I just HAD to watch the movie again)

A book you can finish in a day

A book set somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit

A book that came out the year you were born

A trilogy

A book with a love triangle

A book with a colour in the title

A book by an author you’ve never read before

A book you own but never read  !!!!!!!

A book that takes place in your hometown

A book that was originally written in another language

A book set at Christmas

A book written by an author with your initials

*A book based on or turned into a tv series – Kathy Reichs’ Deja Dead (3 ½*, they turned this into Bones but I’d made the mistake of liking the TV series far too much to like this Tempe)

*A book you started but never finished – Katie Ashley The Proposal ( it sucked as bad as the fan fic that lead to 50 shades of shite)

Linking up to Rachel for the challenge party.

  1. Thanks for joining in paulainauckland. There are actually 50 books on the list. On my post, I’ve linked back to the original list – there’s no way I could read 50 books in a year, so shortened it to give me a fighting chance of completing the challenge!. You’re right about finding a book from another country – piece of cake!. It’s a book set in Christchurch I’m going to struggle with and make the local librarian earn her pay helping me find one!
