Challenging myself

If you've read my last post you will know that I am taking a break from review requests and focusing on reading more of what I own (or see at my library). My main goal is to get back on track for my Mystery Challenge. I've been picking the shelves (at my library) and my own for the books I want to read. I discovered Linda Castillo's Amish Mystery Series while working at the library this week and picked it up right away.
She will be my "C" pick and review should come up next week!

I have also come across The White Devil by Justin Evans ( I think he is going to be my "E" pick) and Absent Friends by S.J Rozan (my potential "R" pick).

I'm glad I finally decided to refocus because I am really jazzed about these books.
Ahh, now just to keep focus going and NOT get distracted. :)

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

I tend to be happier when I make my own book choices too, but then oppertunities arrise and sound interesting so I say "yes" and am left wondering why I did it to myself again. Have fun with your reading challenge!

Okay, first of all, I have to apologize for being so MIA lately. I got back from vacation and proceeded to stay busy! I launched Castle Macabre, as you know, and I've been having a launch event and I'm planning my scary Fall read-a-thon, which I'm hosting this time over there. =O)

Secondly, I have to admit to you how badly I'm failing at your challenge. *sigh* I need to step it up! Maybe I'll browse my shelves and see what I can come up with. If I end up failing, please don't hate. ;O)
