I’m excited to participate in two reading challenges this year, and the first is the Feminist Reads Challenge sponsored by The Hiding Spot.
Quoting Sara from The Hiding Spot:
- A movement for granting women political, social, and economic equality with men.
“I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.”
- Feminism is supporting and helping to create strong girls and women.Women who have the ability to take care of themselves, who believe in themselves, and who have the freedom to pursue their dreams and share their beliefs, values, and opinions.
- Feminists encourage and support strength, independence, individuality, and passion in women of all ages.
- Feminists fight for people. Yes, they obviously fight for women, but I think it can also be said that they fight for what is right. For equality for all. For every person to have a voice, an education, a fighting chance.
Did you participate in any reading challenges in 2012?
I joined several, and thought I’d share my reviews if you’re looking for recommendations in Romantic Suspense, Young Adult, Swimming, or Series.
The Eclectic Bookshelf hosted the Romantic Suspense Challenge. This is my favorite genre so of course I gobbled up these sexy and suspenseful reads:
Black Ops by Cindy Gerard:
1. Show No Mercy
2. Take No Prisoners
3. Whisper No Lies
4. Feel the Heat
5. Risk No Secrets
6. With No Remorse
MacKinnon’s Rangers by Pamela Clare (Historical Romantic Suspense):
Skin Deep by Pamela Clare
Sempre by J.M. Darhower
Next is the Young Adult Reading Challenge. This doesn’t include all the awesome New Adult books I also found in 2012. Here are some great reads:
Destiny’s Fire by Trisha Wolfe
Ember by Carol Oates

It appeared I was the only one who joined my Swimming Reading Challenge, ha ha. Here are the swimming books I read and reviewed:

Finally, I’m pleased with the progress I made on the All Series, All Summer Challenge hosted by Amanda at On a Book Bender and Kelly at Reading the Paranormal. You can check out the books I read HERE.
I haven’t signed up for any 2013 challenges yet…any recommendations?
