Reading Challenges

A Challenge To Read More… Annual A to Z Author Challenge 2015

Since joining Goodreads.com I have found many “new to me” authors and series.
As my regular followers will know, I took the site’s general “2014 Reading Challenge” and have signed up again this year. In addition to that I decided to sign up for a few reading challenges that the groups I belong to set.
The group “Who’s Your Author”discusses your favourite PNR (Paranormal Romance) and UF (Urban Fantasy) writers. Including but not limited to: Kelley Armstrong, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Jim Butcher, Laurell K. Hamilton, Patricia Briggs, Karen Chance, Lilith Saintcrow, Lynsay Sands, Keri Arthur, Jennifer Rardin, Kimberly Raye, Christine Feehan, Jacquelyn Frank, Ilona Andrews, Karen Marie Moning, Kim Harrison, J.R. Ward, and Charlaine Harris. It’s always fun to find out about new authors and give yourself more books to read!

This group also has a Book of the Month and an Author of the Month. While no one is required to participate in these activities, it exposes people to new authors and books and gives people the opportunity to try new things.

So, this post is all about the annual reading challenge that the “Who’s Your Author” group have set for the whole of this year…

About Author

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog - www.florasmusings.com
