Fall Reading Challenge

It is that time of year again.

Time for the

3rd Annual

Fall Into Reading Challenge

Hosted by the lovely Katrina at Callapidder's Days

The Fall Into Reading Challenge is a fun, easy, casual challenge that is open to everyone and is simply a low pressure challenge to read. Read as many books as you want or just one, two or three. All you have to do is set a goal and go for it. Then, share about books you read, your likes or dislikes, new discoveries with everyone.

The challenge runs during Fall from September 22nd through December 20th. There are 13 weeks in Fall and I will probably be able to manage at least two books a week. Several are authors I have already read with sequels or the beginning of new series. There are a few first timers on the list as well. The books aren't in any certain order and subject to change.

1) White Lies by Jayne Ann Krentz. First time read for this author and is a secular paranormal romance. Part of a series. She blogs with several other authors including 2 of my favorites - Lori Foster and Elizabeth Lowell at Running with Quills. Finished

2) Violet Dawn by Brandilyn Collins. This is book # 1 in the Kanner Lake Series and is a christian suspense novel. First time read for this author. She blogs about writing at Forensics and Faith Finished

3) Brink of Death by Brandilyn Collins. This is book # 1 of the suspense series Hidden Faith. Finished

4) Seventh Day by Bodie Thoene. This is the 7th book in the A.D. Chronicles. It is the continuing fictional saga of jesus and his ministry and his friends. Very well done and really personalizes the bible. Finished

5) Sinner by Ted Dekker. Another chilling christian suspense novel which brings back Marsuvees Black (the bad evil preacher from "Showdown") Finished

6) Dead Heat by Joel Rosenberg. Book # 5 in his christian political thriller series. Finished

7) Beverly Hills Dead by Stuart Woods. A secular mystery that takes place in the 1940's during the days of the Hollywood blacklist. Finished

8) Show No Mercy by Cindy Gerard. Brand new secular romance suspense series introducing the men of Black Ops, Inc. If you read any of the sizzling bodyguard series, then you would probably enjoy this new series. Cindy blogs with other romance authors at Riding with the Top Down. Finished

9) Ilse of Fire by Wayne Thomas Batson. This is book # 2 of his pirate adventures and follows Isle of Swords. I read all of the young adult christian fantasy series The Door Within and was totally blown away by his writing. He blogs at Enter The Door Within Finished

10) Brisinger - # 3 in the Inheritance series by Christopher Paolini. Finished

11) Foundation by Mercedes Lackey. I'm excited that Lackey has written a brand new novel for the valdemar series called Valedemar: Collegian Chronicles. Lackey is a secular fantasy author who is very imaginative and I have read most of her books. Will be released on October 7th. Finished

12) House of Wolves by Matt Bronleewe. This is another August Adams adventure following "Illuminated." Finished

13) Snow Blind by Lori Armstrong. This is fourth book in the Julie Collins series. Secular story about a female private detective who is very tough. Lori blogs with 4 other authors at First Offenders Finished

14) Trashed by Alison Gaylin. First time read of this author and she also blogs over at First Offenders. (Tried twice - could not get into it - done)

15) Trial by Fire by Terri Blackstock. Christian suspense book # 4 in the Newpointe 911 series. Finished

16) Dead Trilogy: Dead Wrong (Finished); Dead Certain (finished) and Dead Even (finished) by Mariah Stewart. Secular mystery thriller series about 3 murderous prisoners who escape and and vow revenge.

17) Crossfire by Joann Ross. Another suspense thriller and first time read. Finished

18) All the Queen's Men by Linda Howard. Romantic suspense! Finished

19) Shadow and Silk by Ann Maxwell (aka Elizabeth Lowell) Another romantic suspense thriller and one of my favorites. She also blogs over at Running with Quills. Finished

and last but not least

20) The Pagan Stone by Nora Roberts. Conclusion of the Sign of the Seven Trilogy and will be released on November 25. Can't wait. Loved, loved, Loved the first two books - Blood Brothers and The Hollow. Paranormal Romance.

Happy Reading!


  1. Great list! You've given me some ideas to put on my wishlist for a later date. Happy reading!

  2. I need to read the seventh book in that series too (come to think of it, I need to read the 6th too....). Those books are great, but require a LOT of brain power on my part - not quite the "lite reading" that's quick to breeze through. That is one series that I am buying bit by bit though too!

  3. What a great list. Have fun reading this fall!

  4. Great list! I really like Ted Dekker and Joel Rosenberg, but haven't picked up either of those books yet. I think I'll need to soon! Brisingr just arrived at our house for my husband to read. I still haven't cracked that series either. So many books, so little time!

    Thanks for being part of the challenge!

  5. Thanks for the link of Jayne Ann Krentz, Elizabeth Lowell and Lori Foster's blog. I will have to check it out. Happy Reading.

  6. All of those books look so good! I'm especially looking forward to reading Brisingr. Good luck on your reading journey!

    Feel free to drop by my blog and look around a bit...maybe even leave a comment or two. :D

  7. You have quite a list as well. I have read two of Francine Rivers and LOVED them so someone suggested this one. I hope I get to it. I doubt I'll get to them all, but it will be fun to try.
