Contentment Reading Challenge 2013

I'm doing it again! The Contenment Reading Challenge. Due to circumstances outside my control, finances are tight this year, so buying new books is a luxury I pretty much can't afford. But I love to read, so old favourites will be coming out again.

I'll update you once a month on how I'm going.

I chose to 'Dive' in a read 20 books. Although knowing me, I will end up reading way more than that.

I'm also going to include books that I've borrowed from other people or the library that I am re-reading.

I've already got 2 books for the list, but I'll tell you about them when the month is over.

ACRBA Tour - A Simple Mistake by Andrea Grigg

7 – 11 January

is introducing

(Wombat books 1 April 2012)

Andrea Grigg

About the Author:
Andrea Grigg grew up in Auckland, New Zealand, but has lived most of her life in Australia. She lives with her husband on Queensland's Gold Coast, where they have raised their three adult children – two daughters and a son. If she isn't teaching ten-year-olds, being a domestic executive or socialising, Andrea can be found in her cave, writing stories.

Short Book Description:
When Nick and Lainey meet again after 10 years so much has changed. Nick is now a famous celebrity and Lainey is the girl he left behind. As a member of a highly successful band and with an emerging acting career Nick can have any girl he wants. Now he wants Lainey back.
They had been so close when growing up, but after Nick left to seek fame and fortune, Lainey had never heard from him again. Now she has moved on from what she felt for Nick as a teenager. Or has she?
After discovering what kept them apart for so long, they tentatively rekindle their past romance. The feelings are just as strong as before but can Lainey accept Nick's lack of faith? And can their new relationship survive Lainey's secret?

Genre: Contemporary Fiction

My Thoughts:
What a great story of how God can be at work in people's lives bringing them back together after time apart and showing them His plan for their lives inspite of (or because of) the heartache they have experienced.
I loved how Andrea wrote about what can be a sensitive and controversial topic - being with someone who is not a believer.
