Winter Reading Challenge Wrap up

The Winter Reading Challenge is coming to an end as of March 20th. Originally I had 18 books on my list and ended up reading 24. The only books I decided not to read during this challenge were Magyk by Angie Sage and Joe Hilley's book about Sarah Palin: A New Kind of Leader. I started Magyk and just couldn't get into it and just wasn't in the mood yet to tackle the Sarah Palin book. I set these books aside to read at a later time.

  1. Salvation in Death by J.D. Robb
  2. Wicked by Gregory Maguire
  3. If There Be Dragons by Kay Hooper
  4. Love by Design (2 classic novels) by Nora Roberts
  5. Fire Dancer by Colleen Coble
  6. Five in a Row by Jane Coffey
  7. Bad Faith by Aimee Thurlo
  8. Unspeakable by Sandra Brown
  9. Distant Echoes by Colleen Coble
  10. To Catch a Thief by Christina Sky
  11. Black Sands by Colleen Coble
  12. Hot Mahogany by Stuart Woods
  13. Split Second by David Baldacci
  14. Kiss - Ted Dekker
  15. Spider's Web by Agatha Christie
  16. Destiny Kills by Keri Arthur
  17. Prey for a Miracle by Aimee Thurlo
  18. The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen
  19. The Wild Sight by Loucinda McGary
  20. Dance with the Dragon by David Hagberg
  21. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
  22. A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton
  23. Hercules Poirot Christmas by Agatha Christi
  24. A Ghost in the Machine by Caroline Graham

Most of the books were new author reads and I enjoyed almost all of them. It's hard to say which one was my favorite although Life of Pi, Promises in Death and The Bone Garden stand out. My least favorite author read were the books by Colleen Coble. I had come across a sale on and bought her books after finding Fire Dancer at the local christian book store. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into her characters. I won't be repeating the type of book buying binge again, unless I've actually read something by that author and know it will be something I will enjoy.

Once you are done with your wrap up post, leave a link on Mr. Linky. If you are not done with your reviews, the link to the book reviews will remain up in the link bar for a few more days. Then this post will be taking its place.

Looking forward to hearing how you did with the Challenge.

Thank you so much for participating and making my very first challenge easy and enjoyable. I enjoyed reading all your reviews and adding so many interesting books to my ever growing wish list.
