This month, I read Hereafter by Tara Hudson and Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay. I enjoyed them both. Looking at the books I have left remaining on my list, well...I have some doozies! Outlander and Game of Thrones to name a few. I'm laughing at myself for saving these monsters til the end. Putting off the really hard stuff til the end...just like school, yeah?

This challenge is being hosted by Lili Lost in a Book.

I have finished this challenge since I challenged myself achieve God level or 6-10 books and I've read 6. (I'm actually wondering if Patricia Briggs' books would fit this challenge?) Anyway, I'll continue to add books here as I read them because, hey, sometimes I'm an over-achiever. ;) Here are the books I've read so far:


Shadow's Edge (Night Prowler, #1)Endure (Need, #4)Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)Daimon (Covenant, #0.5)Strange Magic: Part One (Magic, #1)Strange Magic: Part Two (Magic, #2)






New Release Challenge (un)Conventional Bookviews


Lexxie @Unconventional Book Views and Stormi @Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! are co-hosting this year-long challenge to read books being released in 2015. Originally, I challenged myself to reach New Release Newbie status - or 1-15 books. Since I met that goal, I decided to aim higher. ;) I set a new goal of New Release Pro - or 16-30 books. And I've now met that goal as well! Goodness! I really didn't think I'd read that many new releases this year. So, keeping in mind we're ~6 months into the year, I've set a new goal of New Release Enthusiast - or 45+ books. That's right - I'm setting my sights on the highest goal!

In July, I only read four New Releases. Woohoo! ;)
