August Reading Challenge #2 – Over in a Flash

The August Over in a Flash challenge is very special to me, because I was invited to be the one that set the boundaries.  Since August doesn’t have any “big” holidays, I had some fun with this challenge.  I invite you to join me.

Rules: Read 2 books with the following items found on their covers; choose 2 of the 3 options below. Be sure to post your book covers, dates read, and star ratings. If you want, you can do this at the end of the month after you reviewed your covers. Feel free to do all three if you want.

COLOR: Green 
HOLIDAY: Back to School (All Month) – Read a book that stars a school age (college, high school) hero/heroine, Hawaii Becomes a State (August 21, 1959) – Read something that takes place in Hawaii (for help with this state, go here or here) or another Tropical/Beach location. Indy Speedway hosts it’s first race (August 19, 1909) – Read a Book that features a Auto Racer, Fast cars, or people that like to turn in circles over and over. The A-Bomb is Dropped on Hiroshima (August 6, 1948) – Read a Book that takes place during a War or features a Military Hero/Heroine, or does NOT have a HEA.
ITEM: Peridot (August Birthstone), Onyx (August Secondary Birthstone), Lion or Virgin (Astrological Signs), Gladiolus or Poppy (Birth Flower), eight, watermelon, chocolate, marshmallow, cake, candles, pens/pencils, notebooks, jewelry, lighthouse, volcano, waffle, airplane. Words: birthday, school, class, gold, dream.

My books for this challenge (I always choose one for each category):

Color: The Look of Love by Bella Andre
Theme: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles (High School Age Hero/Heroine)
Item: Seduction and Snacks by Tara Siver (Chocolate)

About BrandilynRC

Brandilyn is a middle-aged (When the hell did that happen?) stay-at-home mom to 3 beautiful children (of course she is biased). She started reading M/M Romance and Gay fiction in early 2012 and was quickly hooked. In her first 18 months as a M/M Romance fan, she read over 900 titles in the genre (not counting re-reads), ranging from shorts to epic novels. She reads across all tropes within the Gay Fiction genre…. except Regency, she has never found a love for Regency. A native Texan she finds Texas to the be almost perfect… except for one thing, their treatment of the GLBTQ community. This blog is her brain child and she is happy to welcome some fellow GLBTQ supporters to review here and help promote equality (oh and of course fangirl/fanboy over their favorite authors and works).
