Mini Reviews: #ReadProud Part 1


This post has been a long time coming. I participated in #ReadProud in June, hosted by Julia Ember, and completed the gold level, which was to read two books in each category. One of the requirements for the challenge was to write a review for each book.  I posted short reviews on Goodreads and Amazon, but never got around to sharing them here! There are eight total so I’m sharing the first four reviews today and the final four next week.

This was one of my favorite reading challenges I’ve participated in. I discovered so many great new books, and got lots of suggestions from what others were reading too. AND I won the gold level prize, a $100 Amazon gift card!! I finally used the gift card last week, and as soon as the last book I’m waiting for arrives, I’ll be posting a haul to show off all the great books I picked out.
