Honestly, this will be the first official time that I'll be joining some reading challenges. I normally challenge myself to read so-and-so number of books per year but since I've taken the hobby of reading more seriously, I think it's time to join the challenges being hosted online [and yes, the prizes are 90% of the reason also of why I joined :P ]
First off, I've joined the Sookie Stackhouse reading challenge -- this runs from July 1, 2009-June 30, 2010.
Goal is to read the Sookie Stackhouse books. Easy enough? Not for me! I'm an ultra slow reader, in case you guys haven't noticed yet. :P I've just asked my good friend Yam to help me get some audio books to get me started. Yaay!
Here's the link:
Dead Until Dark
Living Dead in Dallas
Dead to the World
Dead as a Doornail
All Together Dead
From Dead to Worse
Dead and Gone
Second, I've joined the Harry Potter reading challenge -- this runs from August 1, 2009 to July 31, 2010. It's a good time for me to catch up on all 7 books of Harry Potter, since my friends knew that I stopped reading the series at book 3. I don't understand why I stopped in the first place as well, but hey, now's the time to re-read the series & finish off what I've started.
I've finished downloading an audiobook of the Prisoner of Azkaban so I'll probably kick off this challenge there.
- Sorcerer’s Stone [Finished November 4th, 2009]
- Chamber of Secrets
- Prisoner of Azkaban [Finished December 15th 2009]
- Goblet of Fire
- Order of the Pheonix
- Half-Blood Prince
- Deathly Hallows
Third challenge: the Reliquaiae Challenge
Goal is to read at least 3-6 books that revolve around the paranormal: vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches and all sorts of fantastical beings.
Challenge runs from July 15th 2009 to January 15th 2010.
- Bite on the Neck: 3 books.
- Flying Cauldron: 4 books.
- Deadly Red Moon: 5 books.
- Haunted Nights: 6 books.
1. New Moon - Stephenie Meyer [Finished August 22, 2009]
2. Eclipse- Stephenie Meyer [Finished October 28, 2009]
3. Breaking Dawn - Stephenie Meyer.
**Looks like I'll fail this. I haven't finished the Twilight Saga series! :\ ** However, if it involves Harry Potter as a magical being [ie a wizard] then I've passed the first goal with flying colours with 4 books read!
Once I've finished the three above, I'll probably do a cross-challenge with the two other challenges I've posted above.
