Challenge Wrap-Up

Finished Challenge – Numbers Challenge

Well, I have officially finished my first challenge! Tonight, I finished my final book required for Callista’s Numbers Challenge. (Note: There are different links there, one to the challenge page, and one to the hosts’ personal page).

For this challenge, I read:

  1. Mary Higgins Clark – Two Little Girls in Blue
  2. Harlan Coben – No Second Chance
  3. James Patterson – 1st to Die
  4. James Patterson – 2nd Chance
  5. Ian Caldwell & Dustin Thomason – The Rule of Four

As laid out in the rules, three were overlapped with other challenges. Those that were for this challenge only were 2nd Chance and The Rule of Four. Through this challenge, I was able to read both of the James Patterson books which had sat on my shelf for at least 2 years. (Not sure why I never picked them up before!). Patterson was a new author for me, as was Ian Caldwell & Dustin Thomason. It had been a long time since I had read anything by Harlan Coben or Mary Higgins Clark.

Overall, I am quite proud that I was able to finish this challenge so early. I had to change my list once, after I read the rules more closely and realized that they couldn’t ALL be overlapped with other challenges!! (Oops!) I am glad that I chose this challenge as one to participate in!!

Pages: 400
Rating: 4/5
Read: March 21-22, 2008
Challenge: Numbers Challenge

First Line: Aaron Winslow would never forget the next few minutes.

The Women’s Murder Club returns in this second installment of the series! This time, they are up against a brilliant murderer who is seemingly killing people at random. But Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer is under the impression that the killings are somehow related and that there is a serial killer on the loose. But in order to convince her boss and co-workers, she has to enlist the help of her girls in the Club. And what they find out will rock the city to it’s core.

This was another great one from James Patterson! This one read so incredibly fast and was a great read!! I still do not know why I waited so long to start this series, but am definitely glad that I’m reading them now!!

Finishing this book also completes the Numbers Challenge. (My first finished challenge! Yay! – I’ll post a end-of-challenge round-up post shortly).
