Orannia's Broken Wing Challenge

A while ago Orannia issued a challenge for anyone who hadn't read Broken Wing, to read this book. Since everyone and their mother (and father and brother and sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbours and so on) know by now how much I adore this book - it's numero uno on my all time favourite book list now, I've been following said challenge.

Those who took up the gauntlet had until the end of July to read and report their thoughts. If I'm missing some, please let me know!! But from what I've been following, Orianna was the first to report in with her thoughts.

Amy of Aymless's Thought's on Books and Life (and who I got to 'hang' with in DC - and what fun she is) has just blogged about what she thought of it too!


And I had an interesting chat with the people of Source books, publishers of her next release Highland Rebel, in DC and they told me that Broken Wing was the best selling book Medallion has had. I don't know if this is true or not - but if it is - a big huge SCORE!! for blogger buzz 'cause I can't help but think that all us bloggers who have read and loved this book and blogged about it have been a contributing factor in it's doing so well!!

That's fantastic news! And your post has reminded me that I have to do a round-up post :)

Oh, and I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for Judith James' second book!

Hi Kristie
My son bought me Broken Wing for my birthday, but I don't think I'll have it read by tomorrow.
