Hello and happy Tuesday! We are so glad you are joining us today! Thanks for being here!
The week’s challenge comes from the amazing Brenda Margriet:
Writers are readers, too! What have you been reading lately?
The last weeks have been spent reading entries for the Vivian Contest for RWA. I had nine books to read for the second round, which means nine full manuscripts and not a lot of time to read them. The new criteria for the contest meant I had to read these with a new and different point of view. The winners are to be examples of the best of romance literature. This was different than the prior contest and required more involvement and evaluation as I went through the books. Of the ones I read, there were two that I believe should move on to the finals and no, I can’t tell you which two.
What I can say is that I hope all the judges will choose finalists based on the quality of the writing and nothing else.
I did finish and now I have some time to tackle my TBR list, which is incredibly long, but includes:
“The Betrayal” by Terry Lynn Thomas
“The Secret Sister” by Brenda Novak
“The Giver of Stars” by JoJo Moyes
“The Cutting Season” by Attica Locke
and so many more…
Can’t wait to get started!
Now, let’s hop over to the wonderful Caro Kinkead and see what she’s reading…
