Books Won Reading Challenge

Not so very long ago, I decided I needed a little pick-me-up and entered roughly eleventy-billion book contests on various blogs and websites. Then, rather unexpectedly, I started winning them. None have arrived yet, but I’ve received enough notifications that it seems fitting for me to join the Books Won Reading Challenge. Here are the “award” levels:

Honorable Mention: Read 1-3 book you won.
Bronze: Read 4-6 books you won.
Silver: Read 7-9 Books you won.
Gold: Read 10 or more books you won.

I’m not sure I’ve won enough to be eligible for silver or gold, but we’ll see how it goes. So for now I’ll say I’m going for the Bronze. My list so far:

* Heresy by S.J. Parris
* Hollywood Moon by Joseph Wambaugh
* The Russian Dreambook of Color and Flight by Gina Ochsner
* The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova
* Absolute Power by David Baldacci
* Juliet by Anne Fortier
* The Creative Writer’s Survival Guide by John McNally
* The Animal Review by Jacob Lentz
* Talking to Girls about Duran Duran by Rob Sheffield
* 101 Things I Learned in Fashion School by Alfredo Cabrera

I may have won more that I don’t know about. Sometimes books just show up long after I’ve forgotten about them.  This is a good challenge for me, though.  Sometimes I need help prioritizing my TBR pile.

Edit: I will be linking to my reviews as I read them, adding more books as I win them, and removing books I won that I’ve since realized I am simply never going to read. The original version of this list had 7 items.

  1. I’m so glad your joining us for the challenge! You have 7 book listed, so if you plan to read all 7, you could go for silver. I look forward to reading your reviews.
