Random Reading Challenge – 1st Book


RandomReading.01-249x300 My first Random Reading book is from a category I didn’t use as an example in my initial post. I didn’t use my trusty database either because have only a handful on my “Shelf” list.

Before I get to the results, I want to explain what prompted me to go this route.

I’m currently participating in Naida’s Romance Reading Challenge. There are no official specifics regarding the type of romance, but I decided to make it more of a challenge by being more specific (a Georgette Heyer, a SHOMI, a category). The remaining two books were named specifically (a non-category contemporary and a non-category historical). I did really well with this, until I got to the historical romance.

I initially chose My Lord and Spymaster by Joanna Bourne. I couldn’t get into it. I then selected The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley. Again, couldn’t get into it. I really want the last book for the challenge to be a non-category historical. As stated above, I have only a few non-category, straight-forward (ie, no paranormal elements), historical romances. I’m not having any luck picking one, so I figured, let the computer do it.

And if this book doesn’t grab me. . . well, I have until December to finish the challenge and I may resort to a totally random romance book, regardless of the subgenre.

Without further ado. . .
