What is Simply...Challenging?

In brief, Simply...Challenging is my challenge blog. Here, I'm only listing the reading (and 1 writing) challenges I am/have taken part in, as well as book lists for each. My reviews are posted at Goodreads. Yes, it seems weird, but right now, it works for me. ;)

Julia Quinn Reading Challenge


1 January 2012 - 31 December 2012

Aislynn from Stitch - Read - Cook is hosting the Julia Quinn Reading Challenge.

She states: "Several years ago I was introduced to Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series. Little did I know at the time that she would become one of my favorite authors! Since then I have collected almost every single one of her books. Her books are the type to make you smile, make you laugh and sigh a little. My goal this year is to re-read all her books - all 26 of them (including the novella's)!"  And she's inviting others along for the ride!

Reviews are not mandatory, but encourage.  Aislynn will be posting a link-up every month to share your reviews.  Several mini-challenges and giveaways will be offered throughout the year.  The full list of JQ's books and novella's are given below.

*****

I've wanted to JQ for awhile, but never seemed to get around to it.  Now here's my chance! ;)  While I probably won't be reading all of her books, I'm going to attempt to read The Splendid Trilogy, The Bridgertons Series and The Smythe-Smith Quartet to start with and see how it goes from there!

As titles are read, they will be dated, a link to a review posted, and (finally, since I love to do it!) crossed out.
