hr-challenge-2016-badgeYes, I’ve been suckered into 2017 reading challenges. How can I resist a challenge that is tailored to the exact genre I’m trying to write? I have to research, so why not reach for the stars and become a countess for reading the books I’m reading anyway.



Lets be brutally honest here and admit that being called Countess in casual conversation sounds fabulous. To attain this level I have to read between 16 and 25 historical romances

If you’re interested in joining the challenge runs all year (until December 31, 2017) curated by I Heart Romance & YA and you can sign up at any time. If you’re feeling frisky and very British, you can aim for the level of Queen reader and get through 50+ books this year.

Book Tally as of 3/1/17

  1. It Happened One Autumn by Lisa Kleypas
  2.  Devil In Winter by Lisa Kleypas



I’ve also signed up for the Bad Boys of Romance Reading Challenge 2017. If there’s one thing I cannot resist it’s a bad boy or a redeemed rogue. *swoon* I’m aiming for Level 1-Capturing the Bad Boy (5-9 books) since I can always level up and get that bad boy thinking about things like balls and chains (that’s level 2).

The challenge  is curated by Delighted Reader and sign-up is open until November 30, 2017.

Happy Reading!
