So, I decided to start up my RITA Reading Challenge - to read those nominated books that I have on my shelf (OR a different book of theirs already in my possession, sorry I must protect my bank account) before the awards ceremony. The books in my RITA Reading Challenge are:
Stolen Fury, by Elisabeth Naughton - nominated for Best First Book and Romantic Suspense
Snowfall at Willow Lake, by Susan Wiggs - her novel A Lakeshore Christmas, was nominated for Novel with Strong Romantic Elements
Whew! Fifteen books in all - think I can get them read before July?
And before I forget - I want to congratulate those books I have read and loved that are nominated:
Not Quite a Husband, by Sherry Thomas - nominated for Historical Romance
Scandal, by Carolyn Jewel - nominated for Regency Historical Romance
"This Wicked Gift," by Courtney Milan in The Heart of Christmas - nominated for Romance Novella.
All well deserved! Congrats, ladies!
