Last Minute Read-a-thon Day 1: Goals Challenge



There are plenty of books I should have read by now...but there are a few I really want to try to review before the year ends! Here are my goals for this Last Minute Read-a-thon:

Finish Love's Awakening by Laura Frantz 
(I'm a little over 100 pages in)

Read All in Good Time by Maureen Lang 
(I've barely started this one)

Read Pilgrimage of Promise by Cathy Bryant
(On my Kindle)

Read Born of Persuasion by Jessica Dotta

My parents very generously gave me a new laptop for Christmas (among other sweet gifts!), so I'll probably be working on getting that set up today or tomorrow... I've still got some other posts to write and share before 2014, though, so I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again soon! 

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with family and friends!

Maria,

LOL - it happens to everyone! No worries. ;)

Aww, I'm glad I could introduce you to some new reads for your wish list! I'm sure these will all be great. :) I'm planning on reviewing them when I finish!

My parents are so generous and wonderful; I'm truly blessed. :) I've only gone through the set-up, but I'm sure I'll be transferring files sometime soon-ish, LOL...

Thank you for your sweet comment, and happy new year to you, as well!

So glad to hear you loved those two! I should have read them a long time ago, but better late than never, right...? :)
