2015 reading challenge

The start of the year is always full of people accepting reading challenges. After seeing this one put together by Bethany House, I thought it would be fun to do - less stressful than making a certain book number goal. This is just sixteen books (which, without further criteria, I could manage in less than six weeks), but they have various stipulations. 
As Love Blooms Wings of a Dream Beauty (Folktales, #1)
As Love Blooms by Lorna Seilstad: in my state (MN)
Wings of a Dream by Anne Mateer: makes me cry
Beauty by Robin McKinley: a book I loved as a child
The Princess and the Goblin Cover Art Love's Rescue
The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald: my best friend recommends
The Memory Weaver by Jane Kirkpatrick: has a great cover (isn't beautiful in its simplicity
                                                                                    and color?)
Love's Rescue by Christine Johnson: features someone who shares my eyecolor (blue-grey)
Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor The Lost Heiress
Lorna Doone by RD Blackmore: over 500 pages (750, actually)
The Lost Heiress by Roseanna M White: begins a series (Ladies of the Manor)
Things Not Seen by Jon Bloom: a genre I don't normally read (nonfiction)
Rasmus and the Vagabond A Noble Masquerade (Hawthorne House, #1)
Rasmus and the Vagabond by Astrid Lindgren: has a child main character
The Wood's Edge by Lori Benton: favorite time period (Colonial)
A Noble Masquerade by Kristi Ann Hunter, written by an author I've never heard of
The Scarlet Pimpernel  My Stubborn Heart Through Waters Deep
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy: was made into a movie
My Stubborn Heart: reminds me of someone I love (in appearance, personality, and situation.
                                      Apparently what she needs is a hockey player.)
Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin: includes a Christmas scene
The Blue Castle by Lucy Maude Montgomery: a classic I'd never read
The Blue Castle


  1. What a fun challenge! Are you going to do a book challenge next year?

  2. I don't know; depends on if I hear of a good one, I guess!
