I have been entering book giveaways for quite a while now and I have won a number but even after I started my blog I never mentioned any of them here. But I really appreciate all the publishers, authors and bloggers who made it possible so I wanted to give a little shout out to the blogs that my winnings have come from. I think I have managed to pull together an almost complete list. I know there are a few missing but I'm going back over a year so I did the best I could.

The books with an asterisk (*) in front of the title are the ones that I have read. You may have noticed that there are a lot that do not have asterisks. I am always very excited when the book arrives and put it on the TBR pile but then more things get put on the TBR pile and things get shuffled around and so some haven't gotten read yet. So, since I have managed to finish the two reading challenges that I signed up for this year I've have decided to make up my own personal reading challenge and see how many of these books I can finish by the end of the year. Notice that I haven't mentioned any number. That way I can't possibly fail. And that's how I like my challenges.
