Just finished book #1: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I wasn't sure if I liked it until the end, but it's now one of my favorites. I read a lot of young adult fiction, but I usually stick to fantasy/sci-fi/dystopian books and not contemporary/issues books. I definitely recommend having a box of tissue nearby if you choose to read this one.

Up next is The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan. I always read his new books with my nephew, but I think this might be the last because he's outgrowing the series. In fact, I think he's just reading this one to humor me. It should go pretty fast since it's a middle grades book.

I would love to join. I'm setting my goal as 24 books.

I use to read every free second I had, but now I can't seem to keep my eyes open! Lol

Finished #1 0f 2013 The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman

It is the 3rd of the Golden Compass Series. I didnt like it as much as the first 2 in the series.

I will be finishing #2 tonight. Black List by Brad Thor. Very good tech thriller.

Can I join in please.

My aim will be 30 books. Its great to see some different titles on here, as can get in a rut with genres.

My #1 will be Restless by William Boyd.

I'm in! I decided upon 30 books. I read 33 last year, but 2 books per month and a little extra is a nice goal for me, plus some of the books I want to read are really long. For example, I want to re-read some of the Outlander series.

Currently reading Fault Lines, and so far I'm enjoying it. I'm also re-reading Lord of the Flies for school.

Ok what we did on the last book challenge was introduce ourselves and set a goal. We kept track of our own by posting something like this after completing each book:

Goal 48

#22 "Book Title" "Author"

Brief review.


Just a suggestion.
It's too confusing for me otherwise, lol.

I've already got my first glitch with Goodreads. I logged on this morning to change the status of a book from reading to read, which I did. But then I couldn't figure out how to add another book to the "currently reading" shelf. Hey, I did post on the Dis Readers discussions, so I'm feeling pretty confident that this will eventually work out for me!
