Agnieszka (agnieszka7) | 11 comments Daily Challenges:

#1: Random Page Challenge
The challenge is to grab a book, flip to a random page, and share a sentence from that page.
I decided on Dark Justice by Brandilyn Collins and used the randimiser for the page #.
#268: He clamped a hand over her mouth. In no time she disappeared into the van. Emily ran toward her. “Nno—!”

#2: Favorite Author Challenge
Today you need to pick a favorite author to share with everyone.
I have a huge # of favorite authors as well, so it's a tricky one though the first name that came into my mind after reading this question was Lynette Eason

#3: Duo Color Challenge
For this challenge, pick two colors of books (covers or without their covers) and using at least four books (two of each color) either take a picture of them to share or list them
That's a difficult one again. My favorite colors are blue (any shade), white, lilac/light violet (in German and Polish there's no difference in name for these two color groups), pink (the cool lighter tones) & cool mint
blue: Hope Under Mistletoe (Seasons of Hope #1) by Jessica R. Patch Quilt of Faith Stories of Comfort from the Patchwork Life by Mary Tatem The Judge Who Stole Christmas by Randy Singer Web of Deceit (Agents Under Fire #1) by Susan Sleeman
pink: Model Spy (The Specialists, #1) by Shannon Greenland A Lady of Esteem (Hawthorne House, #0.5) by Kristi Ann Hunter Don't Be A Stranger (Valerie Inkerman, #1) by A.R. Winters Macaron Murder (Patisserie Mystery #1) by Harper Lin

#4: First Line Challenge
This is another super easy challenge (we need our free time to read, right?). The challenge is to grab whatever you're reading (or just a random book) and share the very first line.
Georgiana Darcy's Diary: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice Continued by Anna Elliott:
Of all the wonderful secondary characters in Pride and Prejudice, Georgiana Darcy has always been my favorite. (Author's Note - loc. 27)
At least I was not in love with Mr. Edgeware. (First diary entry - there are not chapters in this book but dates of a diary entry - page 1/loc. 43)

#5: Favorite Genre Challenge
For this challenge just share a favorite genre. It doesn't have to be the favorite if you have more than one. You can take a picture of a book or multiple books showcasing the genre or just share the genre, so this one leaves room for some creativity or to just be quick and simple.
Another tricky one since I have two favorite Genres: romantic suspense (RS) & fun cozy mysteries though if I had to pick one it would be at most times RS.

And here some of my favorite Christian RS (5* & 6* only) - most of them are contemporary but the two historical (the last two) are real gems:
Sturm im Paradies by Elisabeth Büchle * Cabin by the Lake by Desiree Douglas Riptide by Eric E. Wright Song of the Meadowlark (Intertwined #1) by Sherri Wilson Johnson No Safe Haven by Kimberley Woodhouse When a Heart Stops (Deadly Reunions, #2) by Lynette Eason Sidetracked by Brandilyn Collins Web of Deceit (Agents Under Fire) by Susan Sleeman The Negotiator (O'Malley, #1) by Dee Henderson Im Sand der Erinnerung by Lynn Austin = Wings of Refuge by Lynn Austin The Vigilante's Bride by Yvonne Harris Im Herzen die Freiheit by Elisabeth Büchle **
Literal translations for German titles:
* Storm in Paradise
** Freedom in the Heart

There's so many I love, but based on the fact that I've read the most from this author - it's Denise Hunter.
