26. The Duchess War
Also, I read:
27. Broken Promises – Dawn Pendleton (NEW)
28. Just One Damned Thing After Another – Jodi Taylor (NEW)
And at the start of August, I am also 2/3rds of the way through Pride and Prejudice for Kylie’s challenge, which I hope to finish over the weekend – there is announcement expected in the next few days as to what Pemberley Digital’s next YouTube series will be, and I want to read whatever they pick before it starts.
So that brings the current year to date total to 28 books read, 13 of them re-reads, and 15 of them new. FIFTEEN NEW, PEOPLE. I think we can call this one #CHALLENGECOMPLETE (but I’ll still be reading and posting for the full year). How’s everyone else’s challenge reading going?
