book challenges.

I am going to do this little post to advertise the great Book Challenge 2013 Timechaser came up with. The original number is 50, but feel free to set your goal to any amount that would be a reasonable goal for you! The whole point is to read more for fun. :)

I know time isn't the easiest thing to come by, so 50 might not be attainable for everyone. I know it isn't for me lol. As much as I love reading, I've been finding less and less time each day to fit in reading for enjoyment [which is sad]! So I will not be announcing an official number for myself (if it's more than one per month, I will be overjoyed), but I will list what I've read and am currently reading here.

Now then, read, enjoy, laugh, cry, [maybe post some reviews here on this World] and all that good stuff. <3 Take care~

My 2013 List:

Finished Reading:

  • 1. Counterpoint by Rachel Haimowitz
  • 2. Crescendo by Rachel Haimowitz
  • 3. Magic's Pawn by Mercedes Lackey
  • 4. Magic's Promise by Mercedes Lackey
  • 5. Magic's Price by Mercedes Lackey
  • 6. Melusine by Sarah Monette
  • 7. The Virtu by Sarah Monette
  • 8. The Mirador by Sarah Monette
  • 9. Corambis by Sarah Monette
  • 10. Brightly Burning by Mercedes Lackey
  • 11. Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner
  • 12. The Last Stormlord by Glenda Larke

Well, my 2013 total was indeed 12! Lol. One per month, as I thought. Too bad I couldn't read more than that, but that's ok. I like to absorb each sentence! Of these that I read, I'll give some awards lol:

  • Most disappointing ending: Brightly Burning
  • Most surprisingly addictive (after getting past the boring beginning): Swordspoint
  • Also most addictive: Melusine
  • Sexiest (M/M romance): Counterpoint & Crescendo
  • Most touching and sweetest ending that made me wanna cry: Magic's Price
  • Most aggravating (this book did not sit well compared to the others in the series: Mirador
  • Best overall series: The Last Herald Mage trilogy (Magic's ___)

Not sure if I'll do a list for 2014 or not...but yeah. There you go. XD Happy new year!
