Themed Reading Challenge 2011

Posted in 2011 Challenges  | 20 Comments

 February 15- August 15, 2011

The Themed Reading Challenge is a challenge that was thought up and hosted by Wendy at Caribousmom.  She was looking for someone to take over hosting it and I jumped at the chance.

This is a six month challenge designed to help readers clear books from their to-be-read stacks which center around a common theme or themes.  
  1. Readers may join at ANY TIME between now and August 15th.
  2. Books should be chosen from the reader’s TBR pile (this may be an actual physical pile or a virtual pile).
  3. The goal is to read AT LEAST 5 books linked by theme and review them.
  4. Overlaps with other challenges are allowed.
  5. Readers may change their list of books OR their theme(s) at any time.
Readers may choose from three different levels of participation:
  1. Read at least 5 books which share the same theme.
  2. Read at least 5 books which share TWO themes.
  3. Read at least 5 books which share MORE THAN TWO themes.

Themes can be geographic, genre, author, subject matter, or anything in between! Last year’s themes were wonderfully creative and varied…check out the sign up links from the 2010 challenge to get an idea of what others have chosen for themes.

To sign up, please create a post on your blog about this challenge and the themes you will use and then sign up in Mr. Linky below, linking back to your post about the challenge.  Please post all of the books you have reviewed for this challenge in Mr. Linky, below, as well. (If you don’t have a blog, you can still join this challenge.  Post your book review on any book review site such as Good Reads, Library Thing, or Amazon, etc. Then post in the comments.)

Giveaway: HOW SWEET IT IS By Sophi Gunn-Blog Tour

Posted by Teddyrose@1 on January 28, 2011
Posted in My Past Giveaways  | 11 Comments

Thanks to Anna Balasi of Hachette Book Group, I am giving away up to 3 copies of this book.

Book Description:

Single mom Lizzie Bea Carpenter learned long ago that no white knight was coming to save her. A hardworking waitress at the local diner, she’s raising her daughter to be like the independent women in her “Enemy Club”–high school rivals turned best friends, promising to always tell each other the whole truth and nothing but!

Yet part of Lizzie wishes she did have a man’s help, just for small stuff, like fixing up the house. Her fairy godmother must have been listening, because Dante “Tay” Giovanni soon appears. He’s sexy, kind, and offering assistance–no strings attached.

Slowly, steadily, Lizzie’s heart opens. But the grip of the past is fierce, and nothing in life is ever really free. Tay has his own tragedies to overcome, but if he can, he’ll fix more than Lizzie’s home. He’ll show her just how sweet it is to be loved by him.
