  1. Yay, so excited you'll be taking the challenge! Lots of amazing books - I'm so excited to read them all!!

  2. @Lisa Schroeder

    Me too! This seemed like an excellent reading challenge--lots of great books, some of which I was already looking forward to and some new ones that I just discovered!

  3. Wow...sounds like one interesting challenge but you're right, you do have a whole year pratically. Let's see...I've heard of THE DUFF, about thought about adding GIRL STOLEN to the wish list, but the others I'm afraid I'm at a loss! Look forward to seeing your posts as you progress through the challenge. Happy reading!

  4. You won an award! Check it out here:

  5. Wow, this looks like an awesome challenge! I can't wait to see how it goes!

    BTW, I'm trying to convince my little sister to start a blog, and since she loves reading I quickly showed her yours. She thought your blog looks awesome and loved the idea of book challenges! <3

  6. I can say I could never do this challenge, I like to pick my own books. Some I doubt I would read.

  7. @Dree

    Awe, that was sweet of you and her! Tell her to do it :) I'll follow her.

  8. @Cleverly Inked

    They all seem pretty good! Plus, I like a challenge. I think I can do it, but really it's to each their own. Everyone is different :)


Comment away, my friends. I love to chat with you guys. :)
