It’s that time again… Time for a new reading challenge from the ever-fabulous Nat of ReadingRomances.com! I have to agree with her sentiment that September went by so quickly, but I’m looking forward the the tricks and treats she has in store with October’s challenges:
THEMES: 3) Read a book categorized as romantic suspense (Romantic suspense involves an intrigue or mystery for the protagonists to solve).
SPECIAL EVENTS: 4) Halloween: Read a book that you consider “scary” or “spooky” , or one that features a typical “Halloween” character (witch, vampire, ghost, etc), or Read a book with a character, or subject matter, that is also a typical, old-fashioned Halloween costume (witch, ghost, vamp, princess, fairy, cowboy, firefighter etc, etc…).
5) Teacher’s Day: Read a book set in a school, college or university, or a character is in the education field (teacher, professor, lecturer, etc).
6) National Book Month Read a book set in the publishing business, or a book about writing, or one with a character that is a writer, publisher, editor, etc.
7) Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Read a book that is Chick-lit or Women’s Fiction, a book with a character dealing with cancer or a book with a strong female lead (“strong” can encompass physical, mental and/or emotional strength) *A virtual high-five for a book with a pink cover.
Well, I feel ahead of the game for once! I just downloaded the new romantic suspense, Survive the Night by Vicki Hinze. That will be at the top of this month’s reading challenge and count for challenge #3. And then the third book in Tanya Michaels Hill Country Heroes, Rescued by a Ranger, is out now so I’m taking on a second challenge for the #4 ‘classic costume’ category (cowboys!).
As always, you can choose as many options as you want! Leave me a comment here and let me know what you’ll be reading for the October challenge, or join all the fun at ReadingRomances.com!
Live the adventure!
