For this challenge you will need to read seven books in six months. To complete the challenge the title or author's name will need to begin with the letters R-O-M-A-N-C-E and must be classified as a romance novel (this includes as romance sub genre including contemporary, historical or paranormal).

R - Raine - Elizabeth Amber
O - On the Prowl - Patricia Briggs
M -Midnight Cravings - Michele Hauf = double bonus points lol!!
A - Animal Attraction - Charlene Teglia
N - Nicholas - Elizabeth Amber
C - Addictied - Charlotte Featherstone
E - Edge of Hunger - Rhyannon Byrd

The books have to be read from June 1st through November 30th.

Now... if anyone cares to hope aboard.... please feel free...!!!!

Happy Reading to you!!!


  1. Hey Cecile! I'm doing this one too!

    Good luck :)

  2. I am probably doing this one too :) But I am having such a problem with N

  3. Amy C ~ Yay!! Did you post your book list yet...? Hope you are having a great day!

  4. Oh, that is cute!

    Right now I am doing 2 challenges...The Non Fiction Five and The Southern Reading. I feel somewhat pressured just doing these 2, so I won't add another...but I do like the premise of the challenge. Good Luck and happy reading!

  5. Blodeuedd ~ Hey Girl! Do you have an books by Amanda Ashley... Night's Pleasure, Night's Master, Night's Touch...
    Go check out my goodreads section, I have more N books than I do authors... But here is the listof author names with N... Nalini Singh (Angel's Blood), Alyson Noel (Evermore)... wow.. that is not much... but titles.. I have a few!
    Hope you are having a great day!

  6. Hey Missy!
    Wow... 2... yea, I would not want to add another to my plate either! Girl.. your's is full!
    See, I am not a non fiction kind-of girl. Maybe one day though.
    Hope you are having a great day!

  7. No, I didn't post the list, becuase I don't know yet! I just posted the blog post so I could do Mr. Linky. I think I'll add the books as I read them, rather than pre-selecting. I dont do well when I make a list and try to read from it!

  8. Nope, but I came to think of something and found that I have a book by a woman with the last name she can be my maybe cos had not planned to read it. Must go through the books left at my parents this weekend :)
    I shall find N

  9. Good Luck with your Challenge Cecile! I have a hard enough time choosing which book to read next, much less choosing what to read over the next several months. I'd fail horribly I'm afraid.

    (((hugs))) VFG

  10. OMGsh, this challenge is so much harder than the one I'm doing. But I believe you can do it.

  11. Well... it makes me committ to what I will be reading ~ which is a plus... helps to tackle the TBR pile... yea right.. only to go buy more books this weekend (Got my first ever $5 coupon from Borders)! Which I did last weekend and I still need to post those books!! LOL!!

  12. Good Luck with the challenge Cecile.

    I've not committed to any of these because of time constraints.

    However, this one I perhaps could manage.


    Happy Reading

  13. Hey Lea!! You have till November... that is one reason why I took this challenge.. I figured on a good day.. I use to read a book in a week or two (who am I kidding... if it is hot.. in a night or two)... but to read and review... well... But I have till November!!! Why don't you try it!
    I am tagging my angel as my symbol for this challenge... he will be my MOTIVATOR!!! He will help me in those long nights **wink**

  14. Welcome to the wonderful world of book challenges - LOL!!! I am doing this one too - but haven't got my reading list up yet - still trying to work things out.

    Good Luck and I look forward to your reviews.

  15. Hi Cecile!!

    I think I might try this one!! It sounds like something I can absolutely manage!! :)

  16. I am so making my list tonight and checking it twice. 7 books in 6 months not difficult considering I read at least one a week. I may have an issue sticking to the reading order, however I am up for the challenge. I am going to post my list of books tomorrow. Good luck to all.

  17. Cecile, I'll take the challenge!
    I'll post the list on my blog.

  18. Kara ~ Thank you! I am looking forward to doing this. I see these on everyone else's site... So, I figured if the right came along... I would take it! And it does seem do-able. I will looking forward to seeing what you are reading as well!!

  19. Blanche ~ Hey girl!! Hope all went well! I think this is one that almost anyone can do. I mean, we allll love to read... so 7 months to accomplish reading 6 books!!! Not a bad to start off with!! I think you can handle this... =)

  20. Eva ~ Hey! Thanks for stopping by... hope to see you stick around!
    I am not sure if we have to read them in this order or not... I would think that as long as you read what you say, you are good to go!
    I can't wait to see your book list! I will be looking for your post tomorrow!!

  21. Hey Host!! I am glad that I can count you in honey!!! Can't wait to see your list!!! And read your reviews!

  22. Yay!!! I am so excited you are doing this!

    I am going to start my "O" book tonight..just to get one out of the way:) I love your list..I like that we read different things:)

    ps Just got Rhyannon Byrd Edge of Hunger..didn't think about putting it as my R or E!! Oh well...going to read it soon anyway!

  23. Hey Mandi ~ I know... I was going through some of the letters and some of the books I have are like #2 or 3 in the series and I have not read one yet... So, I was shaking my head to those!! LOL!! I think it is cool how we found different books to read.. I mean, I know there are a lot out there... but still.. that is what's cool about all this!!!

  24. Hi Cecile!

    I'm doing the YA challenge right now, but I think I'll do this one too.

    Sounds fun.

    Dottie :)

  25. Hey Dottie ~ Yes, please join us!! I think this will be neat to see what everyone is reading... because (Like Mandi said) we all have different taste of the moment... because let's face it... we all love us some hot covers!!!

  26. Cecile, I just went to see how many were signed up with this challenge now and I noticed you haven't singed up with Mr. Linky!

  27. I'm in too! First one I'm doing as well, LOL. Going to get my list together and post it tomorrow!

  28. Caffey... I can't wait too see what your list is going to be!!!!

  29. Alaine ~ Thanks... I have reposted the revisions... I did not know the hows and whys of how to do this... Sorry. But I think I have everything right this time... Just let me know!!!
