I’ve decided to enter even more challenges. How I’m actually going to finish all of these, I’ve yet to figure out.

Anyway, the first is The 2k8 Challenge hosted at Teen Book Reviewer. Since I can pick any amount of new books to read by debut authors, I’m going to read 28 since that’s how many books are on the Class of 2k8. I’m really interested in most of them and I’ll substitute ones that I don’t want to read with others books not on the list.

The second is The Short Story Reading Challenge hosted at Kate’s Book Blog. I plan on reading between 6 and 10 short story collections during 2008. I don’t really have a list for this since I don’t usually read short stories so if you have any suggestions, please let me know.

 The third is Chunkster Challenge hosted at Think Pink. I have to read four books over 450 pages by December 20. I’m planning on reading Libba Bray’s greatest but I’m not sure what else is over 450 pages. The Golden Compass maybe? I’m not sure. I know the last few HP ones and New Moon are book I’ve read them all. I’ll construct a list later.

 The last is the Triple 8 Challenge. I’d LIKE to join in on this one but I’m still unsure. I’m not sure of the categories nor the books I’d read. If anyone has any ideas/suggestions/whatever PLEASE let me know.

This makes like 6 or so challenges in my first year of book reviewing. I’m really not sure how this is going to work. Since I can overlap most of the books into more than one challenge, that may slim the list down a little. I guess it doesn’t matter though since I usually buy that many books a year anyway.

So if anyone comes across any REALLY good challenges, let me know. I’ll be keeping my eyes open too.


First off, I’ve been searching around and found some book challenges I want to enter.

The first is the Royalty Rules contest found at The Magic of Ink. I really haven’t decided what books to read for this since I usually don’t read books about royalty (expect the Princess Diaries). Any suggestions on that would be great.

The second is the 1st in a Series contest at Thoughts of Joy…. I have a few ideas for series I’d like to start, such as Principles of Love by Emily Franklin and Gossip Girl) but I’m still open to ideas. I love starting new series!

I just ordered a bunch of books from powells.com tonight.  There’s a few I’ve been wanting to read forever and a few I just picked out because they were semi-cheap and looked good.  The books I bought tonight:

Heartland #13+14 by Lauren Brooke
The Principles of Love by Emily Franklin
Gossip Girl by Cecily Von Ziegesar
Perfect by Natasha Friend
Breathing Underwater by Alex Flinn
I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
Pool Boys by Erin Haft

The first book I want to read is I Heart You, You Haunt Me. It looks so good and it seems pretty original.

I have a few reviews that I’ll be posting soon.
