The Rory List (ongoing challenge)
This year I have read 5 (arguably 6) books from the Rory List
(Grimm’s Fairytales- I had already read a different version of this)
The Virgin Suicides
I beat last year’s total, which had been my aim, being able to get some for free on my kindle has helped.
Didn’t do well on this one at all this year, only one book. I had aimed to read 5, but I struggled with 1Q84 and I have an edition with books 1 & 2 together so I wasn’t allowing myself to get another Murakami until I had finished that- which I still haven’t done. The site doesn’t appear to be as active this year either so I don’t know if it will be happening next year.
Next year I am really excited for my own challenge The Out of Your Comfort Zone Challenge. The idea is that you read books you wouldn’t usually read, and hopefully find something new to love.
I’m also participating in the Wishlist Challenge 2013.
