    Jess I’m going to go with a similar goal, 2-3 books but I’m going to maybe count pages because I get disappointed when I don’t reach my x number of books read.

    Good Luck and hope to see you at the challenges and chats :)

  2. Ginger @ GReads!

    I always see tweets about this, but have never participated. I am tempted to “unofficially” participate this week. It’s a good time to devote to reading & catch up on a few books for me. But I’m scared to fully commit lol. Maybe I’ll use this as a trial & error and if it sticks, I’ll fully participate next time? Expect some texts from me! haha

    I’m planning on reading like crazy this week, too. Especially the beginning part of the week because Friday and Saturday I’m extremely busy. I really like some of Susan Andersen’s older books. I haven’t kept up with her new books, but I loved Present Danger. Have you read that one? I highly recommend it. Also, Bare it All was a little bit if a let down. I like Lori Foster, but I haven’t been in love with her more recent books.

    For Darkness Shows the Stars & The Body Finder both sound really good. Good luck on your goals & happy reading!

    Fantastic list, I love your goals which are very similar to mine – two to three books and reading every spare second. : ) Enjoy and good luck with your goals! : )
