Yes, I plan my reading around challenges - that is the best part of doing them!!

MountainKat | 20348 comments I'm currently listening to Still the One and enjoying it. About to start An Old-Fashioned Love Song too.


message 15: by Anita Reads (new)

Anita Reads | 170 comments I finished:
Die for Me (Revenants, #1) by Amy Plum Dark Side of the Mirror by Elaine Meece The Look of Love (The Sullivans, #1) by Bella Andre

So happy I finally read Die for Me. I really ended up enjoying it, but I had kept postponing it for months, because I was slightly scared by the Zombie tag. So far that's a genre way out of my comfort zone, but this wasn't that zombie-ish

I also just discovered Bella Andre - The Look of Love was picked for me at the M&G and it was a great start of the series.

Dark side of the mirror was pretty disappointing. I liked it in the beginning but the hero really annoyed me so I ended up giving it 3 stars.

Next up:
The Liar by Nora Roberts Summer Knight (The Dresden Files, #4) by Jim Butcher Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook

Raymond Mathiesen (raymondmathiesen) | 3 comments Book Review of Backward Compatible: A Geek Love Story by Sara Daltry and Pete Clark
Reviewed by Raymond Mathiesen
4 out of 5 stars

Is there someone for everyone? Even me?

Time is passing and the Y Generation have now become young adults. During this social period computers and the Internet have become household items, at least in the Upper and Middle classes. Online gaming has now become a subculture complete with language, social activities and dress. The word 'geek' has become more a description of an alternate subculture than a derogatory term. Daltry and Clarke take us on a wacky trip into the world of computer geeks, as they follow the hectic lives of Katie Garretty and George Lindell. Will this young woman and man come together in a sweet romance, or will they be doomed to remain single forever? Does being a computer geek mean you can never have self-respect, or can these young people grow in self-confidence? Will the pair ever battle their way to the end of Fatal Destiny, the game which dominates their young lives? Backward Compatible is a romantic comedy that will entertain those who enjoy reading New Adult or Young Adult fiction.
