Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments ~ Winter Holidays Around the World ~
A Spell-It-Out Challenge
Duration: December 1st through 31st, 2013.

Rules: We are celebrating the holidays around the world. Since it is a very busy month, you only have to read five (5) books, not six. However, feel free to do six, or more, if you wish. If you pick a short word, two (2) books may be Readers Choice.

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments How I rate:

1 Star – I barely finished it, skimmed a lot. I'll probably never read this author again unless I've previously read and enjoyed other work by same author.

2 Stars – Meh, didn't care for the story nor the characters.

3 Stars – It was ok, with parts that were really good. Not bad but nothing to recommend it either. Good for rainy afternoons when nothing better is available. I might read another book by this author if the blurb sounds interesting and my friends can recommend it.

4 Stars – It was really good even and I enjoyed it. I recommend this book. I will read more of this author's work, or continue this series.

5 Stars – I felt giddy while reading and probably stayed up late to finish it. As soon as I finished I went back and reread my favorite parts. I want to go out and shove this book at everyone I know. Go. Read. This. Now.

We have a monthly newsletter also that we send out to keep you in the loop :-) And we’ve recently added a Map to navigate our group.
