Yearly Reading Challenge ~ Series Challenge

Another fun Challenge I have been working on (actually I have completed once and am working on again) is the Sexy Series Challenge from the Goodreads Group Erotic Enchantments (yep, another 18+ group with 18+ selections).  This one is really fun and results in over 40 books read.  It took me just over a month to go through it once and I just started round 2 of it.

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).
