52 Week reading Challenge Book Baristas 1 300x300 The 2020 Week Reading Challenge  52 weeks of new adventures.

For many of you, setting goals is easy. For others, you’re still not ready to put pen to paper and commit. I am a little of both sometimes so hopefully however you plot and plan next year will be amazing.

If reading all the books was one of your goals, I hope you finished all the books that were on your bookshelf or in your e-reader that you downloaded. Always wanted to read more but not sure where to start?

Today I’m working on my goals for 2020 and reading more books is on my list. While I read and review for my blog, I want to read with purpose. Ask questions, engage with readers and authors, and hopefully help others discover new genres and authors.

It’s with that in mind that I am excited to announce the first annual 52 Week Reading Challenge. It’s time to step outside the genre you usually read and dive into books that will educate, enlighten and hopefully bring change in a positive way. While romance is still near and dear to my heart a lot of things have happened in the community over the past week that show we all need to continue to research, educate and inspire change.

If you’re still reading I’m hoping you’ve made a choice to commit and participate. Now, it’s time to tackle the following steps to make this a successful year and a fun challenge.

1. Download the awesome reading list.

3. Start researching so you can either get those books from the library, borrow from a family member or friend, or be able to purchase when a sale hits on your favorite e-retailer.

4. Join The Book Baristas on Facebook to find the post where we’ll be sharing and chatting about the weekly selections.

5. If you’re an author and you and/or your book fit the weekly selection please feel free to contact me for my weekly post.52 week Reading Challenge 2020 V9 232x300 The 2020 Week Reading Challenge  52 weeks of new adventures.

While there is no rule to reading in order, I will be sharing my weekly selections in the order on the list. If you’re a rebel reader and have a different way, awesome. Hopefully our paths will cross at some point. You are still welcome in the group and I hope that you’ll share your selections with us.

The purpose is to encourage you to read and discover the joy in new book adventures. There are 48 weekly ideas leaving 6 weeks for you at the end to make your own choices as the year comes to a close. I hope this will help reduce the stress and pressure of participating. For many, the holiday season from Thanksgiving to the New Year is challenging and I want you all to complete the challenges.

I hope you’ll stop by and see what we’re up to.

All are welcome and I hope you’ll pass this along. I plan to chat about the weekly choice in my Facebook Group The Book Baristas. Not a member? Join and get ready to take a step in completing hopefully one of your goals for 2020 and make a few friends along the way.

I can’t wait to see what you’re reading. Each week posts will go live on Sundays with my reading selection of the week and a list of other books you may find of interest. If you have suggestions that are not on my list, please comment and I’ll add them to the post.

52 Week reading Question  300x300 The 2020 Week Reading Challenge  52 weeks of new adventures.

The reason I chose this book is because many people I know are either survivors or going through treatment now. I wanted to read this book and share the information to those who might find it helpful.  I will be reading other self-help books if time permits.

Copy of TheSetUp ebook HighRes The Setup by Rachel Van Dyken

Get ready and mark your calendar. Finn, a notorious Wingmen has 30 days to prove himself to his bosses with a new product they are launching. What happens when he needs to test the product and his partner stirs up feelings he thought he’d never feel every again? The chemistry will test Finn and Jillian. Can they resist? Will his past douse the fire before it has a chance to really burn?

Finn can’t deal with Jillian’s little habits and she can’t figure him out. When she discovers a secret that could ruin his Wingmen status it will propel her to do something she never imagined.

The slow burn is absolutely insane and once again the comedic one-liners and witty dialogue add to this must read series. I’ve enjoyed each and every book in the series and hope you will too.

Finn is charming, sexy, and knows what he wants. Jillian has her own set of goals and desires. Both have secrets and would never dream of jeopardizing the dream jobs they have. Sometimes money isn’t everything but for one, it’s a game changer.

Caution, this scorchin read may lead to unexpected need to turn on the A/C.

Copy of AvoidTempation ebook HighRes Avoiding Temptation (A Bro Code series standalone) by Rachel Van Dyken

If you enjoy a series that has all the makings of a must watch movie, don’t miss the latest installment of the Bro Code series. The Wingmen are back and this time it’s an all out cat and mouse caper. What happens when you fall for your best friends sister?

Slater suddenly can’t think about anyone except his best friends kid sister, a rule that breaks every code in the book. What will he do when the one woman who he desires threatens to ruin everything he wants? If only he could resist the chemistry and her charm? Something seems familiar but he shrugs it off. When Slater discovers Tatum’s secret it will jeopardize everything.

Slater has a reputation, will Tatum ruin it or further push him into legend status on campus? I laughed with full on tears with the witty one-liners, the crafty and unique situations and slow hot burn from Rachel Van Dyken. The burn is oh so good.

If you haven’t read the Bro Code series one-click now. While each book can be read as a standalone I prefer to savor the series in order. It’s well worth the patience and time.

EXCERPT:

“Yes, I’ve seen those billboards for your underwear.”

“Fender bender when you did, right?”

“Oh, I have epic self-control. But seeing them made me realize that you’re a bit too pretty. I kind of like ’em rougher.” She placed a finger under his chin and tilted it for inspection. “You ever get into a fight? And I don’t mean those phony ballets you perform on the ice for your fan base.”

“I’m more a lover than a fighter.”

She scoffed, reluctantly withdrawing her touch. “Thought as much. Wouldn’t want to risk getting that perfect nose broken.”

He didn’t take offense. She wondered what in the world would ever bother The Theo Kershaw.

“So we’ve established I’m not manly enough for you. Any other comments?”

“Oh, I’d never be one to criticize.”

He waved a hand. “Help me out, Elle-oh-Elle. Give me some pointers on how to win a real woman such as yourself.”

She thought about it for a moment, her blood fizzing with the fun of sparring with him. “You’d need to be a completely different person. But don’t fret, your current vapid personality is probably cleaning up so don’t change a thing, ’kay?”

He didn’t look put out, probably because her jab carried no heat. They both knew she wouldn’t be talking to him like this if she really believed he was dumb and vain.

“Yeah, good thing I’m doing okay. It’s just you’re here and I’m here …” The implication being that only proximity would force him to lower his standards.

She patted his chest and suppressed a groan at how hard it felt under her fingertips. “I know you can’t help yourself. You’ve got a penis that seeks out the nearest vagina like a diving rod. It’s really not your fault.”

“True. I can’t be held accountable for my incorrigible flirting.”

He grinned and she grinned back, and that fizz in her veins bubbled bright. He’d figured out her game, matched her quip for quip. They understood each other and now they were … friends?

How odd.

And surprisingly sweet.

Theo Kershaw was smarter than he looked. Confusion must have registered on her face because he seemed to be closer, more present. A rush of awareness overtook her, not just of him, but of them and the sparking connection being formed in this sizzling moment, more powerful than mere sexual attraction.

Jake:

Ten days was all we had.

It was supposed to be casual; just sex.

Sure, I let her go, but I’ve not been the same since she’s been gone.

 

Sasha:

How can my heart beat so differently for a man I knew only for eight days?

He let me go. Sure, I could have stuck around to fight for him.

I should have. Hell, I wanted to.

But then I understood what true love really means and I had to choose.

Now I am back, immersed in his life.

Can he accept everything I’ve done in the name of love?
