Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Right, new year, new challenge !

Actually I'm doing three. First one is the bog standard Goodreads one. I reached my 40 books half way across 2012, however, it sounds like 2013 is going to be a busy year for me, so I won't be increasing the number. Just to set up a limit that will hopefully still be in range.

Second one is a challenge for another forum, all about dangerous heroes and series and romance.

Third one is a continuation of what I started last year. Trying to read books written by writers I've come across both on here and on FB. I've already made a list, which is temporary and might be updated as new releases appear for writers who I started reading last year. I seriously need to catch up on some I was hoping to read last year though. So here is the list:

The Nightcrawler by Mick Ridgewell The Shadowbearer (Aegis of The Gods, #.5) by Terry C. Simpson Sam by Iain Rob Wright Double Bind by Seb Kirby Hosts by Dylan J. Morgan The Eyes of the Dead by G.R. Yeates Born of Blood by S.B. Knight The Man From U.N.D.E.A.D. - Do Dragons Dream Of Burning Sheep? (Man From U.N.D.E.A.D., #3) by Darren Humphries The Caretakers by Adrian Chamberlin Beneath the Tor by Kat Yares The Arimathean (Book two in the Slow Boat to Purgatory Series) by Vernon Baker Hell (The Revelation Chronicles) by John Prescott Doors by Jaime Johnesee Thursday Thistle A Fairy Tale by August V. Fahren The Last Queen of England by Steve Robinson Zombies in New York and Other Bloody Jottings by Sam Stone Feeding the Urge by Jeffrey Kosh Cellar Door by P.A. Fenton Endless Summer by Christopher David Petersen Mighty and Strong by Michael Wallace Treespeaker by Katie W. Stewart Something to Live for (Moonlight Dating Series #1) by Natalie G. Owens The Ice Marathon by Rosen Trevithick Fifth Season by David Wailing Magenta Shaman by Lily Childs Master of the Moors by Kealan Patrick Burke Guaranteed Justice by M A Comley Dead Hunger IV: Evolution by Eric Shelman and Zinnman by Robert Craven.

message 14: by Mark (new)

Mark Faulkner (markrfaulkner) | 464 comments I should have one for you before we reach halfway through the year. I'm just putting the finishing touches on it now.


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Thanks Mark ! I'll tag it onto the list... Is Bert making a comeback?


message 16: by Mark (new)

Mark Faulkner (markrfaulkner) | 464 comments I'm afraid not. It's something completely different this time.


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments :)

I'm intrigued...


message 18: by Mark (new)

Mark Faulkner (markrfaulkner) | 464 comments Venturing into the realms of fantasy. Although it's still horror. There are no elves, dwarves, dragons, kings or anything like that though.


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Sounds good to me, Mark :)


message 20: by Mark (new)

Mark Faulkner (markrfaulkner) | 464 comments Just noticed you have Cellar Door on your list. I liked that one.


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments There are a few that I've been trying to read since last year, and then I got distracted ! So I'm trying to catch up. I liked Punchline very much. Hopefully I'll like this one too :)


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Wheyhey ! I've just attacked my first read ! Feeding the Urge by Jeffrey Kosh


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Oh... Attacking a book is a literal translation from French... maybe you don't attack book in English... Maybe I'm just too violent... Mind you, I think this book will be proper satisfying !


message 24: by Elle (new)

Elle (louiselesley) | 7913 comments http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0...


I would use the term attacking too, Lorraine. Maybe it does seem violent but you attack a task so why not a book?


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Thanks for the link Elle :) Attack a book it is then :)


message 26: by Jeffrey (new)

Jeffrey Kosh (jeffreykosh) Glad you liked my story. And I feel honored it was your first book of 2013. Thanks.
My Best

Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments :) it was also the 100th book I rated on goodreads too :) got to update the thread with my reviews, but haven't had the chance to copy it on here yet. I go on here, look at the discussions, then I forget ! *smack on the hands*


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Finally ! I've finished a book ! I've read Inescapable (Eternelles, #1) by Natalie G. Owens (which will replace Something to Live For (Moonlight Dating, #1) by Natalie G. Owens for now).

Thanks for reading it! :D


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Doing slow Nat, not much chance I'll succeed this year. But nevermind, as long as I still enjoy reading (and I'm certainly enjoying your book) it's all fine :)

message 48: by Jud (new)

Jud (judibud) | 18543 comments I can't find an author thread or one for your book so I came here (I'm on my phone so can't search).

YOUR BOOK IS AWESOME!! I just finished it


message 49: by Elle (new)

Elle (louiselesley) | 7913 comments Haha Jud. I was literally just going through the challenge threads to poke everyone ;)


Lorraine! I havent seen you on the group for a long time. I hope that just means you haven't time for us and not that you dont have time to read!


Lorraine Versini (lorraineversini) | 8999 comments Blimey didn't know this thread was still up ! Thanks Jud for your comment and Elle for thinking of me. No need to say I failed that challenge and didn't do one this year, but i'm doing a better job at sticking around here than I have lately :)
