2012 Books Won Reading Challenge

2012 Books Won Reading Challenge

The 2012 Books Won Reading Challenge is being hosted by Teddy Rose at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time.

From the blog:

I created this challenge in 2010 to challenge myself and others that have won books, to read and review some of them.  The reason publishing companies supply books for book bloggers to give away is to get word out about the books and create buzz.  

The Levels are:

Honorable Mention: Read 1-3 book you won.
Bronze: Read 4-6 books you won.
Silver: Read 7-9 Books you won.
Gold: Read 10 or more books you won.

 I participated in this challenge last year, but fell short of getting reviews up :(.  This will be a better year! 

I'm participating at the Gold level.  In order for a book to count, you must write a review.  You can join anytime throughout the year.  Audiobooks and eBooks count, as long as you won them.
For my purposes, (trying to get my TBR bookshelf down), I will only count physical copies of books won.  So .. let me go to my shelf .... and here are the first books I pulled out:

Queenmaker by India Edghill
Wisdom's Daughter by India Edghill
Delilah by India Edghill
Ivan and Misha by Michael Alenyikov
Exposure by Terese Fowler
Evermore by Alyson Noel
READ 2/3
The Night Train by Clyde Edgerton
The Arrivals by Meg Mitchell Moore
READ 2/5
Portrait in Sepia by Isabel Allende
READ 4/13
The Honored Dead by Joseph Braude

 As I review these, I will link up to the blogger that I won them from!  Some of these have been waiting simply too long for me to read them!



  1. I thought Exposure was very good. I have not heard of the others but the last Allende book I read was very good. I hope to read more of the books off my bookshelf this year as well.

  2. I'll be looking forward to what you think of both Ivan and Misha and The Honored Dead.


Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
