#ReadHotter with the 2017 Lady Smut Book Challenge!


by G.G. Andrew2017-ls-reading-challenge

Those of you who’ve been following Lady Smut for over a year may remember our #ReadHotter book challenge in 2016. Well, we’re back at it for 2017 with a book challenge to get you reading even hotter!

This past year has been such a difficult one for many of us. There have been big political changes, high emotions, and too many celebrity deaths. Because of this, I’ve focused the challenge this year on stories that help us escape: romances that transport us to another time or culture, make us laugh, or sweep us away with an intense love story between exes or opposites or two people who have a big age difference.

There are also items on the challenge to provide you that much-needed romance escape during your day: a short story or novella you can read during your lunch break or an audiobook you can listen to at the gym.

Reading books, and romance in particular, has long been a way I cope with stress. It’s relaxing, it’s fun, it gets my mind off the world when the world seems sad or overwhelming or scary. What about you?

If you’re like me, let’s all make 2017 the year we vow to #ReadHotter! Comment below if you’re joining us! We’d also love to hear about the book categories you’re most excited about, and/or the stories you have in mind to read.

Feel free to share the image above on Pinterest, Facebook, or Twitter. You can also tell us what you’re reading on social media under the hashtag #ReadHotter. 

And if you have a great book to recommend, let us know! There’s no better way to ring in the New Year than new (or new-to-us) books!

G.G. Andrew writes quirky romantic comedy. Sometimes it’s paranormal, sometimes it’s New Adult, sometimes it’s between two consenting adults in the real world who are arguing about grammar–but it always involves a lot of awkwardness and ill-advised kisses along the way. Her latest is the short story Girl Meets Grammarian, coming in February in the geek romance anthology Covalent Bonds from World Weaver Press.

    I only got 10 of the 12 categories. I posted what I read under the 2016 Read Hotter Challenge. I am going to do better this year. I started pulling out the books from my “book shelves” for my other challenges and I’m going to do the same with this one. I’ll put them in by challenge bags so I do complete the whole challenge. I am doing 4 challenges as well as an A to Z challenge and the categories give me 112 books to do. Maybe 5 books can be used on multiple challenges but I have all be 10 books in my personal library–mostly prints. I’ll be going to the library for what I don’t have. So here we go 2017!
