Anyway. I'm scaling back on the challenges since I will be having the baby in May, but I'm still going to set some goals for myself! You all can lol forever at me when I fail miserably. That's okay. I can take it.
Obviously, I shall be doing the 2013 Debut Author Challenge again this year! Hey, I didn't do too bad last year. And since I'm helping with the DAC ARC Tours, it's a natural fit. The books I'm interested in trying to get to in 2013 are:
+6 to be determined reads. Because I like to leave some things up in the air, okay?
Let's be real. I've read a lot of first books in a series but then never get around to the second (or third) books. SO. This Sequel Challenge sounds pretty dang perfect for me. Especially because I can set the goal as whatever I want it to be! For the record, any book after the 1st one counts so HOLLA. I'm going with 13 sequels.
Bitterblue by Kristen Cashore. (Book#3) Lucky for me, I'm already doing a readalong. Sneaky, huh?
Frostbite, Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise, Spirit Bound , and Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead. I plan on finishing VA in 2013! You heard it here first, folks.
The Titan's Curse, The Battle of the Labyrinth, and The Last Olympian in the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. PERCY JACKSON, Y'ALL.
You guys, I have a box set of the first 7 books or something of this series and I still haven't read them all! I KNOW. I'm going to try and do the Level 1: Just A Drop challenge for this and read 1-4 of them. I've read through book #5, which just leaves two for me to read that are on my shelf. If I totally get smitten with them again, I may hit up le library for the rest. But, again, I need to pace myself!
Since I'll totally need to be saving money for baby, this is a good challenge for me. Read what I have! AND I still have the rest of 2012 to sneak in some more books to my bookshelf. Mwahaha! I'll be participating in this challenge at the A Sweet Kiss (21-30 Books) Level.
I don't reread my books often enough. I just don't. I insist on buying them because I want to reread them and then new lovelies come into my life and...well. You know. This challenge is wide open with the expectations, which is wonderful because I'm feeling pretty specific about what I want to reread this coming year.
I know. I'm probably really crazy. Even if I don't meet all of these challenges, I'm hoping to still read 50 books in 2013. Wish me luck!
Are you doing any challenges? If so, please share! I'd love to see what else is out there and cheer you on!
Happy New Year!
