Happy New Year & What Not

Welcome to a new year and new books.  I was going to launch right into a book review today, but instead I decided to give you a peek into some of the things I have planned for this year.

As most of you know, I decided to host a Colorful Chick Lit challenge here, as well as on Goodreads. It's not my intention to tell anyone what they should read, but I will be featuring at least one book and author each month that fits into the challenge guidelines.  The purpose is twofold. It will give those that are having difficulty finding colorful chick lit a book suggestion.  And it will give the author some well deserved promotion of her book.  Each book will be highlighted for a week of the month with a review that Monday, an interview or chat with the author on Wednesday, and a book giveaway on Friday.

While I'm still working out the details for the year, our first quarter books and authors will be:

The Frugalista Files by Natalie McNeal

Sweet Little Lies by Michele Grant

Good-bye to All That by Margo Candela

If you have questions for the authors, please email me at  Do you know of a book that you think should be featured this year?  Be sure to leave a comment and I'll see what I can do.

I'll also be hosting a readathon at some point this year to help readers catch up on their reading challenges. I've eliminated January and December as potential months because we're already in January and there's too much going on in December to play catch up.  So in what other months would you be interested in participating in a readathon? Don't worry. It doesn't have to be a hardcore 24-hour readathon.  More than likely we're talking about six to 12 hours.
