MY BOOK CHALLENGE FOR 2012
Posted December 21, 2011on:
MY THREE BOOK CHALLENGES 2012
I will leave my comments in the box below; as replies for updates for how I’m progressing throughout the year, as well maybe do reviews on the books I found interesting and rewarding to have read.
(R) = Read
The Long Book Challenge
This one was made up by Debra’s Book Café and Bumblesby, on their youtube book channels and goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/
The challenge for 2012 is to ‘up the game’ and read longer novels
(mine would be from the home library) of books over 400 pages in length,
here it could even be for me, a re-read as it gets one back up to an advanced level.
1. The Shelters of Stone by Jean M Auel (765 pages)
2. The Dreamstone by Liane Jones (488 pages)
3. The Crystal Cave/The Hollow Hills/Wildfire at Midnight
by Mary Steward (a bind-up of 698 pages)
4. Samraj by Elaine Aron (489 pages)
5. Domes of Fire by David Eddings (470 pages)
6. The Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan (885 pages)
7. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (594 pages)
8. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (661 pages)
NOTE: it’ll be randomly chosen what to read, rather than in chronological
order given above, but it must be a book listed, and whatever isn’t
read in this section gets carried over to the next year.
Read Your Own Library Challenge
This is a challenge to read at least one book every three months
that you own and have never read previously.
1. Original Love by J. J. Murray
2. Wanton by Noelle Mack
3. Good Things I Wish You by Manette Ansay (R)
4. The Humbler Creation by Pamela Hansford Johnson
5. Cork Street, Next to the Hatter’s by Pamela Hansford Johnson
6. Strike The Cloud by Graeme Watson (R)
Read Series Books Challenge
This challenge has been made up by me, to read at least three books
within a series or all of the complete series of fantasy books by the same author,
that has been been waiting to be read.
1. The Sons of Destiny series by Jean Johnson
2. The Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning
3. Acorna series by Anne McCaffrey & Elizabeth Ann Scarborough
NOTE: whatever isn’t read in this section gets carried over to the next year.
