We’ve made it through five months of the Autumn 2017 Reading Challenge I’ve been hosting here on Writing to Inspire. Have you been making good progress toward your reading goals?
There’s only one more month to go now. I have been rooting for you to enjoy and do well on this reading challenge over the past five months, and I’ll still be rooting for you through December as well.
There will be another reading challenge in 2018, so stay tuned for more details on that. I’ll be sharing those in a few weeks.
One of the books I’ve been hoping to get to for this challenge is Counted with the Stars by Connilyn Cossette. I hope I have time to get to it before Christmas. Everything typically gets busy for me again around that time, with family events and meals and cooking for those meals. It looks like a wonderful Biblical fiction story, and take a peek at the gorgeous cover! I especially love how her cloak is a sky of stars. Very beautifully done, I think.
A favorite of mine was Bringing Maggie Home by Kim Vogel Sawyer, which I used for the “theme of ‘trust'” category. Ms. Sawyer has long been one of my favorite authors, and this book made it into my top five favorites of her stories. I highly recommend it!
So take a deep breath, grab the next book that will fit a category, and dig in. We’ve got a month left, and I know you can do this!
Want to join in on a reading marathon? On Wednesday of this week, we’ll start our discussion of Katherine Reay’s A Portrait of Emily Price. Be sure to check out this article for more information and to find out where the reading marathon will take place.
