The Challenge Report

April 25, 2015

Dewey's 24-hour Readathon logo

Here’s where I’ll be posting the challenges I’ll be participating in during the Readathon. In fact, let’s get started right now!

Hour 0 Challenge: What the Readathon Means to ME

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

I’m in Los Angeles, California, so we have a start at the ungodly hour of 5:00 a.m. Ugh. Good thing I haven’t gone to bed yet. LOL. Soon, though.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

Probably the Cherise Sinclair book. I’ve been a fan of hers for a long time, and it’ll be good to get back to this series. It’s been a while.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

At the moment I want the biggest, orangest bag of Doritos that ever Doritoed. Unfortunately for me, I have none in the house and have no intention of LEAVING the house, so I’m kinda screwed there.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

I love to read romance in a bunch of different genres. I knit a lot and take too many pictures of my cat. Lucky for you I don’t always share them online.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

I’d sleep more, but that’s only because last time I was in the midst of a 2-month bout of Insomnia so it had literally been months since I slept more than 2-3 hours at a time. It was great for my Readathon reading last time! But I was ready to start playing in traffic.

Treasure Hunt MiniChallenge

The quest was to find three book covers. One with a tree, one with snow, and one with a weapon. Since I love Christmas novellas and romantic suspense, this should be easy. LOL

Okay, so first up is Jill Shalvis’ Merry Christmas, Baby. This is a 2-for-1 as it has both trees AND snow! I loved this little holiday novella, btw. My review for it is HERE.

Next up is HelenKay Dimon’s Playing Dirty. I love this cover. And this book. This series, really. Romances featuring kick-ass women and men who like to go around and blow stuff up. What’s not to love?

Picture It Challenge

The challenge was to find a picture that represents something within the book I’m currently reading. Since I’m still on Cherise Sinclair’s Master of Freedom and it’s set near Yosemite, this was a no brainer. I LOVE Yosemite. I’ve been there many, many times. In the book Virginia (“Gin”) has a picture of a climber on El Capitan up on her office wall. Here’s my version which I took on my last trip there with my mom in 2009.

(For this I’ll upload the pic here later. In the meantime, TO THE INSTAGRAM!)
