2011 Challenges

Greetings, wonderful blog followers! Christmas is near and we just got two feet of snow where I live. With the end of the year impending, I'm starting to plan my 2011 reading (and it looks like it's going to be another great year). I'm already planning to participate in the 2011 Debut Author Challenge (check out my list here), but am adding to more challenges to my list.
Click on the photo to find out more information about this challenge. I'm going to aim for Level 3 for this challenge and read at least 15 books. Here's some of what I hope to read. Some of these are the first in a series, and if I like those I will likely continue with the series. If you have other recommendations, please leave them in the comments!
The Luxe by Anna Godbersen
Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Season by Sarah MacLean
Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson
Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson
Wildthorn by Jane Eagland
Witch Child by Celia Rees
Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer


For this challenge, my aim is to reach Level 4. Here's what I plan to read.
Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Interview with the Vampire by Ann Rice

It looks like 2011 is going to be a great year for books! Are you participating in either of these challenges? What do you plan on reading?

  5. I'm glad you're joining in! Thanks for posting about my challenge!

    I think you'll like all the books you chose. Well, I haven't read Beautiful Darkness yet myself, but I fully expect to love it!

    As for the other challenge--I didn't realize you haven't read The Book Thief yet! It's my favorite book! I bet you'll love Bloody Jack too. I would also recommend Annexed by Sharon Dogar.

    Good luck with your challenges!
