2015 Reading challenge

January is a time to set goals.

For 2014 I read a total of 30 books.

Which was 20 books shy of my goal.

For my 2015 reading challenge I decided to keep my goal at 50. Below is a reading challenge list that I think will help me achieve my goal. Plus it will also give me a variety of different kind of books to read.

 I can check off two from my reading list already for 2015:

  • A book set in a different country – Mr. Darcy Forever, by Victoria Connelly. As you can imagine this book took place in England

Mr. Darcy Forever by Victoria Connelly

I loved the details of the Jane Austen festival. I also liked the similarities to the Sense and Sensibility story-line. Mr. Willoughby vs. Colonel Brandon would be a better title instead of Mr. Darcy Forever but that’s just me. I gave it a 3 star rating because the story gets a little carried away in the end and it didn’t feel natural to me, like it was added to increase the drama. I did like Victoria Connelly’s writing and I’m interested in picking up the rest of her books, especially the obsessed Jane Austen fans trilogy.

  • A book set in the future – Savage Run by E.J. Squires is the first book in a Young Adult Dystopia series
Savage Run by E.J. Squires

The Savage Run is a brutal competition where contestants try to survive in hopes to win their freedom. Heidi is a girl pretending to be a boy so she can participate in the Savage Run and escape her cruel life. This is an intense read. I’ve never held my breath so much. I cringed at the physical pain endured and cried through the emotional turmoil. Action is not my usual read but there is a satisfying romance in the midst of all the death defying events.

I’m a big fan of E.J. Squires and love her fantasy series “Wraithsong” and “A Viking Blood Saga.” I’m impressed that she wrote a Young Adult Dystopia which is completely different from her other stories but just as compelling. I gave this one a 5 star rating.

What are your reading goals for 2015?
