Congratulations to all the winners of the 2019 Book Quest: The Challenge!

- Pamela is our Grand Prize winner
- Arlice is our staff winner
- Lonna is our Take It or Leave It champion! She completed 82 of the mini challenges.

Congratulations, everyone!

What is everyone reading this week? Are you loving it? Hating it? Just liking it? I finished Kingdom of Ruins at the end of last week and absolutely loved it. If I could live in that book, I would. She created a world where everything is alive and has agency and it just pulls at me. I'd love to live in a world where I could communicate with the ocean. Now, instead of working on my tbr, I’m rereading one of my old favorites, Crown Duel. After that, I promise I'll get back on my reading goal.

Tell us what you are reading this week!

Kingdom of Ruins by D.C. Marino Crown Duel (Crown & Court #1-2) by Sherwood Smith

Elizabeth Thorlton | 24 comments I'm reading A Map of Days. I like it, but it's been too long since I read the previous books so I'm a little lost and am having a hard time getting into it.

I've come to the conclusion that any sequel books need a recap in the front to help those of us who waited too long between reads (or if it's been a year or more since the last book came out).

I've come to the con..."


Absolutely! I know they weave pertinent details into the narrative, but I need the spark notes recap of key characters and moments.
