Welcome aboard and enjoy your challenge! Looks like you're off to a good start :)
I'm sharing the ticker on several sites/threads, so need to remember to stop by here and post what counted - for what is now 10 ROOT books.
And books 5 through 10 are:
Women on the Brink an ARC from librarything. If you get a chance, get a copy - it's really good!
A Place Called Home
And from the Bastion Club series, four of my own ROOTs:
The Lady Chosen
A Gentleman's Honor
Another catchup entry
A Compromised Lady another regency romance
Marriage by the Book contemporary romance, each was given a "how to date" book by relatives, and they consult it regularly to figure out romance!
The Hostage and The Mistress both by Susan Wiggs in the Chicago fire trilogy series. Historical American romances set during the Chicago fire. (Touchstones not linking - figured it out!)
Beauty Shop Tales light romance set in small town Florida
The Charm School, The Horsemaster's Daughter and Halfway to Heaven Calhoun series historical American fiction set in the later 1880's. The books stand alone, so don't need to read them in order
The Golden Son is an early reviewer's book that followed a boy from India pursuing his residency in the US & is torn about staying in the US, or returning to his hometown in India.
Continuing to move along with over 50% of goal done and it's only April! Of course, that means the ABC TBRs (aka the books that others gave me) is woefully behind for 2016
A Summer Affair is from a Susan Wiggs series that was pleasantly done
Far along in my ROOT challenge (up to 37/50), but alas very delinquent in the ABC TBR set tracked in another challenge. Only 25/75 in that one. So ROOTS will dip a bit, while I catch that one up!
Looks like your numbers allow you to wait a bit.. congrats on your ROOTs success so far!
Continuing to pick up my own ROOTs at the expense still of the ABC TBRs.
Will eventually catch up the touchstones. About 2 months behind on that
Updating May and June here. Almost made it with my own roots. Now to do a better job on the TBRs registered by OTHERS - woefully behind in that goal.
I Am Hutterite
An Unlikely Match
Her Christmas Hero
A Painted House
The Parting Glass
The Rancher's Twin Troubles
A Baby in His Stocking
The Trouble with Twins
Chicken Soup for the Country Soul
A Girl, A Guy and a Lullaby
Never Look Back
One Last Look
The Man For Her
Her Cattleman Boss
>26 nancynova: It's hard to keep a balance between two challenges. Good luck in August.
My goal ROOTS are done, but that doesn't mean that another of my own ROOTS won't sneak into the pile anyway.
Rocket Boys also published as October Sky (anagram of rocket boys and the movie's title) was quite good.
>28 nancynova: Congratulations!
I loved Rocket Boys, it is one of the very few books that have actually made me cry.
