You Know You've Taken on Too Many Reading Challenges When...

...you forget about one of the challenges you signed up for. This is what happened with the Unread Authors Challenge. Somehow, I neglected to post my challenge list on my sidebar, consequently forgetting I ever signed up for it. Man! This is what happens after you turn 30 - your memory just starts slipping away... Well, I have rectified the situation. And, just because I can't stop myself, I'm taking on Challenge #4 - Fall Into Reading. This one runs from September 23 - December 21, and is hosted by Callapidder Days. It's a casual challenge, with no limits on how many books to read and there will be prizes.

So, here's my list:


The Giver - Lois Lowry

The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan

The Zookeeper's Wife - Diane Ackerman

Uglies - Scott Westerfield

Sarah's Quilt - Nancy E. Turner

Woman In Red - Eileen Goudge

You can't sign up for this one until the 21st, I think, but if it sounds interesting, check out Callapidder's site - it's really fun!

  1. Hope you enjoy "Lightning Thief". Such a great series. I loved "These is My Words" by Nancy Turner but have not read "Sarah's Quilt" yet. I need to pick it up because the first one was great.

  5. I have never gotten around to reading The Giver, although I keep meaning too! I've heard it's one of those "can't miss" books. Thanks for being part of the challenge!

  11. I have "The Lightening Thief" on my list...

    My son might like to look at your reviews...he just started his own book review blog (he's 13)...I'll have to tell him about yours!

  12. Deena - I think that's awesome that your son has started a book blog. That's really cool. I don't always review kids' books, but I think everything on this blog is appropriate for a 13 year old.

    I'm always looking at YA novels from an adult perspective - it would be really interesting to see what an actual young adult has to say about them!

Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
