Christmas Break Challenge & An Award!

Blog news to report! First, I want to thank Amanda-Lee at Storywings for giving me the One Lovely Blogger award! I'm always glad to hear that people are enjoying the content here. I have so many candidates in mind to pass this award to that I'm going to need some time to decide, so at some point in the future expect an update on that. Thanks again Amanda-Lee!
If you've given me a blog award in the past and I've neglected to thank you properly, a thousand apologies, please remind me and I will get a proper post up. Thanks!

Second, I wanted to post information about the Christmas Break Challenge being hosted by Haley over at the Life (and Lies) of an Inanimate Object. The goal is to read one book for each day of your Christmas Break, if you're in a world that observes such a thing. I'm a teacher so I'm definitely on board with the break, but my break spans December 24th through January 3rd. I'm still going to shoot for the fifteen books though! It should be a nice way to keep the momentum going from the Fall into Reading Challenge, assuming I ever get any! I challenged myself to read ten books for that and have only read one of my target books so far. Time to get moving!

Anyway, even though it's a long way off, my fifteen books for the Christmas Break Challenge will be:

1. Rocket City by Cathryn Alpert
2. Geek Love by Katherine Dunn
3.A Booke of Days: A Novel of the Crusades by Stephen J. Rivele
4. Death Masks by Jim Butcher
5. Blood Rites by Jim Butcher
6. Dead Beat by Jim Butcher
7. Mage Heart by Jane Routley
8. The Good, The Bad, and the Undead by Kim Harrison
9. Carved in Stone by Vickie Taylor
10. Kiss of a Demon King by Kresley Cole
11. You Slay Me by Katie MacAlister
12. High Stakes by Erin McCarthy
13. Ill Wind by Rachel Caine
14. The Mask of Atreus by A.J. Hartley
15. This Pen for Hire by Laure Levine

All of these are books that have been languishing on my shelf for a long time, so it's good to know they'll get read and reviewed soon. December isn't that far away!

Some great books on your list! I should do this too, but I'm so bad at making book lists:)

Thanks for choosing "Rocket City" as one of your Christmas Break Challenge. So, how far down that list did you get?
