Reading Challenge

This post marks the first post in my reading challenge. My aim this year is to read 40 books. There won’t be as many pictures in this post so I hope you will stick with it.

For my first book in my challenge I chose a trilogy of books recommended to me by my friend Vickie…I asked her if she could recommend one book to me what would it be and this is what she said…

Ted Dekker’s Heaven Trilogy

I’ve never read any books by Ted Dekker before so he’s a new writer to me and I like his style, this would not normally be a book I’d pick for myself but I’m caught up in the story of the first book..Heaven’s Wager, and can’t wait to read more. I’m on chapter 7, well nearly chapter 8 and he’s got my attention, always good if you want to keep me reading your book, the pace of the book is moving good…really good recommendation so far Vickie 🙂

These three books will keep me going awhile and I’ve a few lined up after that to go towards my reading challenge of reading 40 books this year…

Thoeria over at My Little Corner of Cyberspace is reading Relics of the Dead by Ariana Franklin and I’ve just checked these out on Amazon, I think I’ll be starting with book 1 here Thoeria, they sound good lol

When Vickie recommended the Heaven Trilogy to me I recommend the books of Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice in particular , oh come now you readers can’t tell me you are surprised by that ! lol…so going on these lines if you could recommend a book to me to read this year what would it be ?
I will read most everything, although I do try to limit chick lit books to an absolute minimum (Lucie you can only recommend one lol ! ), post your recommendations in the comment box and I’ll make a list 🙂

I will be back tomorrow with a dishcloth challenge update and Friday with some crazies updates, I’m sulking over having made two mistakes on two starts at the moment with that ! I have to frog them but I’m doing every other job but that at the moment lol

Happy reading
Ruth

  1. I understand putting off frogging completely. Very soon you'll be up to the task. So glad you like the book. Yes it is fast paced and a great read with some lessons for us. I absolutely love Ted Dekker books. I have even read the series for the teens. hehe 🙂 Will be waiting for your next post, hoping to see Ruairi soon too, Mr. Birthday Boy! 🙂

    Hmmm, only 1 book to recommend!! There are probably two series that really got me and aren't too mushy – the first would be The Chocolate Lovers Club (two books in this series) and the second series would be the Shopoholics series (much better than the film!) You probably won't like either of these but hey ho, maybe one day I will turn you :-p

    Two books I recommend are Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden (I read this in high school and really enjoyed it) and The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory (set in King Henry VIII's court and much better than the movie that came out several years ago). Have fun reading!

    Silly frog! If you don't mind, please try to keep him on that side of the equator :-PI've not read Ted Dekker before either … just checked out the write ups for this book and must admit that my interest has been piqued. No recommendations as yet 🙂 My brain can't think right now!
