Audiobook Challenge - Updating Progress

Think I lost track of my reading, or rather, stopped posting what I've been listening to on Audible and elsewhere.

I recently finished Their Lost Daughters, performed by Richard Armitage, and written by Joy Ellis.  I'm now definitely looking forward to the next two books in the series coming this fall. Jackman and Evans are my new favorite detectives.  Hope there is a producer out there thinking this book series would make the next great UK TV detective series. And we all know who should play Jackman. 

Now I'm back to Field Gray by Philip Kerr.  I was halfway through this book before taking a break to read/listen to Their Lost Daughters. I'm almost finished, not my favorite of the series so far, too much of Bernie telling the same story to secret agents while imprisoned.  Most interesting is how the Stasi evolved.  Field Gray is Book #10 of the Bernie Gunther series I've read, trying to follow chronologically rather than the order the books were published.

Think I'll go back to Nic Costa next, and book #3.

So I started the Audiobook Challenge in January/February.  What have I read/listened to so far (not really in order):

Their Lost Daughters (Jackman and Evans series)

A Season for the Dead (Nic Costa series)

The Tattooist of Auschwitz

The Martian Invasion of Earth (adaptation of The War of the Worlds - audio play)


The Bloody Chamber (Angela Carter)

The Villa of Mysteries (Nic Costa series)

A Quiet Flame (Bernie Gunther series)

The One from the Other (Bernie Gunther series)

Not sure about Richard Armitage's next audiobook release in August I believe, right now it doesn't seem it will be available in the US.  I'm still looking for it, hopefully it will turn up, or I can order the CD's.

New Richard Armitage Fan Challenge Day 19

Last day of the A-Z Richard Armitage Fan Challenge

Y.  Choose a work of art or a song that reminds you of RA?

Difficult to select just one song that reminds me of RA, but if I have to pick one this would be the one (click below):

I made an RA video with the song a few years ago:


Work of art recently has been a portrait of Monet by one of his contemporaries that reminded me of RA as Claude Monet in The Impressionists.

Z.  A character headcanon you have?

I had to look up headcanon.

Even after looking it up I don't know if I understand the term fully.

Now, I don't write fan fiction, or read fan fiction, so that doesn't help me.  

Maybe the fact that I believe Lucas North is still alive and in deep cover on a secret MI-6/MI-5 operation that only he and Harry know about is a headcanon?     

Well, that is the end of the Richard Armitage A-Z Fan Challenge.  Thank you Guylty for creating and starting it.  

It was fun to take a look back to when I first saw Richard Armitage and some reflection on being a fan today.

New Richard Armtage Fan Challenge Day 18

As I'm coming to the end of this challenge, a reminder of all the questions.  To find out more about the Fan A to Z challenge visit Guylty's blog:


X.   Is there a fellow fan who got you into either delurking or convinced you to participate in the fandom?

No, no one convinced me.  I got into this all by myself. 

Unlike many Armitage fans, I wasn't new to fandoms when  I discovered Richard Armitage.  I had been active in the Sean Bean fandom for several years by then.  

I am grateful for the Armitage bloggers in my early RA fandom days.  It was really commenting on some of the blogs that got me started in the fandom.  

I'm also grateful for all who read my blog and especially those who have left a comment or two through the years. 

Grateful that the RA blogger community at the time invited me to participate in FanstRAvaganza back in 2011.

See link below for one of my favorite posts of that FanstrRAvaganza:

I participated in two more FanstRAvaganza's after that. Probably my most active time in the fandom:
