So I finished my first reading challenge for the year. The Numbers Challenge was to read any five books that contain a number in the title, in any form, between the first of the year and June 1st. Three of the books could be used in other challenges, but I think I only had one that followed that rule – One Foot in the Grave. Anyway, here are the 5 books I read:
- Date Me Baby One More Time by Stephanie Rowe
- One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
- One Little Sin by Liz Carlyle
- Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich
- The Dark One by Ronda Thompson
Three of these authors were new for me – Rowe, Carlyle, and Thompson – and I have to say that I enjoyed their novels. In my quest for new authors, these three were a good find. It was sad to hear of Ms. Thompson’s death earlier this year and that we’ll probably never get another novel from her (unless there’s a manuscript laying around somewhere), but I’m definitely going to check out the ones that are on the shelves.
