    Hey Kimberly!

    Quick question. Do DNF’s count and if so how many pages along for them to be countable? Yeah, had a couple ‘not for mes’. Bummer.

  2. if the book will be too difficult

    I added two reviews to the giveaway a few days ago, but it still hasn’t refreshed to allow me to add more reviews. When you get the chance, can you let me know what I’m doing wrong? Thanks!

    Good luck with your challenge! It looks like you have a lot of great books to read!

    I just posted my starting post and am very excited for this challenge! But I think the button doesn’t send people to your site. When I click on it, it says, “Post not found”. Oh well, little glitches… Thank you for hosting this challenge.

      That was weird, the code was wrong. I did fix it and if you want to recopy code you can. 🙂 Thank you for alerting me.

      • Ardis

        I just fixed it on my site. I’m so grateful for you for organizing this challenge.

    Oh shoot I have to do my goals post lol. I’m really interested in your thoughts on the Karina Halle story, I’ve read mixed review on this first book but the common response to the series is good.

  6. Sophia Rose

    Those are some good ones in your goal line up. I share one with you, Lethal Lies and I’ve already read Veiled Menace. I put a dozen up for my goal, but I hope I get even more. 🙂

    Good luck, Everyone!

    Good luck with your goal! If I could read 20 ARCs this month, I think I’d be away ahead on things, so that would be awesome. I don’t have a set number though – I’m mainly hoping to get May and June ARCs read so I’m ahead at least that much.

  8. Trish

    Good luck Kim! I’m loving the look of Dark House and Bring Her Home. And KA Tucker always delivers a good read with memorable characters. Enjoy!
