2015 Reading Challenge {Week Eighteen}

Welcome to the my weekly 2015 reading challenge wrap up.  Last night I finished book 18 {during the 18th week} of the 52 books I plan to read this year. I’m not going to lie. I wish I was further along, but I’m doing the best I can… which is why I’m doing this challenge. Between work and family life, it’s hard to find time to read. And I really LOVE to read. {Hello! Librarian!} This challenge makes sure I stay motivated to pick my book up for a little bit every day.

So yeah. I finished reading the newest book from JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series, The Shadows. I’m shattered. Utterly and totally shattered. Like, Allegiant shattered. Why would you do that to me JR?!?  WHY??????  After finishing the book, I had to quickly walk away from the couch so my husband wouldn’t see the tears flowing, lock myself in the bathroom, and give myself a pep talk. {“It’s just a work of fiction, Christen.  It is NOT real.”}  But, despite the tears, I loved The Shadows. LOVED! I enjoy the characters and the world and cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

Speaking of Black Dagger Brotherhood *and* series… did you see that there is a spin off series starting in December?  YAYAYAYAYAY!!! 


Blood Kiss will be the first book in the Black Dagger Legacy series.  It will revolve around the BDB’s newly reopened training center.  New recruits = new love stories! Plus, JR is bringing back all of the original Brothers! Each brother will get a new side story in this series.  I.can.not.wait. December is so far away.

Now that I’m done #16 {a book from an author you love that you haven’t read}, I’ll be moving on to my next book from the TBR pile, #37 {a book with a color in the title}. See you next week…
