    Wow! You’ve read so many books already! I think I am up to about 8 or 9 books for my challenge, and have only read something like 20 books so far this year, so good for you 🙂

    • Jess says:

      It helps that a few of them I got to read at work I think (through the Children’s Reading), but even I’m surprised I’ve read that many so far already. Just got to finish my last lot of reviews now 🙂

    You’re well on the way to achieving your goal of reading and reviewing 50. I’m not going quite as well… mostly because I’m hopeless about updating my challenge. I actually bought a few AWW novels on your recommendation – I got More than This, and Lick. 🙂 Happy reading.

    • Jess says:

      oh wow. I hope you enjoy them Kate! You know how I got at Indie Authors Down Under, well you should have seen me at work when I unpacked the red print covers of LICK… I may have been fangirlin alone in my back dock at work. It was a sight to behold!
      More than this is dark and angst-y but great, but Lick is just a fab contemporary romantic read. I loved it.

      As for the challenge, I’m usually pretty bad at updating. I’m participating in a couple of challenges this year, but AWW is the one I keep track of most accurately and am usually on top of. Minus the reviews still waiting to be written and edited. Funnily enough since posting this I’ve read three more for this challenge. Best of luck with your own AWW challenge, the year is only young still and there’s plenty of time to get more in 🙂
