2015 Reading Challenge {Week One}

It’s 2015!  The two things I have been most excited for are beginning my half marathon training and starting the Popsugar 2015 Reading Challenge.  I’ve been obsessing over that Popsugar list for weeks, trying to decide what books fit into which category… and what would be my first book of the challenge?!

I woke up New Year’s morning at 7:00 am and child free, so of course I had to grab my first book of the new year.
I decided to start the 2015 Reading Challenge off by attacking Robin LaFevers’ final book in the His Fair Assassin trilogy, Mortal Heart. {#13. A book set in a different country.} I love, love, love, LOVE this trilogy. Two words for you: Assassin Nuns. There is romance, political intrigue, awesome history.  LaFevers really writes a stellar young adult novel.  If you’re looking for something fast paced and awesome this year, start with Grave Mercy.  I promise, you will not be disappointed.

After tearing through Mortal Heart in four days, I picked up my second book for the year, James Rollins’ Sandstorm.  {#42. A book you own, but have never read.}

My husband is not really a reader, but he does love this series (it’s his book) so I thought it was time to (finally!) give it a try. I’m currently 75 pages into it, and I’m hoping the story will start to move a little faster soon, because it hasn’t 100% grabbed my attention yet.  I’m feeling positive though. I should be done by next week’s check in to share my final thoughts.

I would love to know what you are reading in 2015.  Anything awesome?  Also, is anyone else doing this Popsugar challenge?  Make sure to tell me which categories you have checked off of your list.  Interested in seeing the complete list with my selections? Check them out here!

  1. Hiya! If you’re looking for a suggestion, I’m reading China Dolls by Lisa See and she would cover your book written by a female author plus a book suggested by a friend, . The book grabs you from the first page and it is like I’m watching a movie. 🙂
