2o12 New Books Challenge
January 1st 2o12 - December 31st 2o12

User Image

This is my second year hosting a New Books Challenge.
This thread is based on threads started by Tooticky, holy crisis, and Slayer Igraine.
It's the 2o12 New Books Challenge Thread! This is the time to challenge yourself and to open up your reading horizons.


:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:.:

Instructions and Guidelines
1.) Set a goal for yourself of how many books you want to read in 2o12, and post it using the Start Challenge Form.
2.) Each time you start reading a new book or finish a new book, list it here using the During Challenge Form.
3.) When you reach your goal, PM me the page number where your final book list is posted. I will then add you to the list of winners!

● You can start this challenge at any time during 2o12.
● If you started reading a book in 2o11, but you finish it in 2o12, you can include it in your list.
● If you are re-reading a books, just go ahead and list them in a separate category, but they will not count toward your number goal.
● Try reading books from different authors, genres, and of different sizes to mix it up.
● Textbooks and manga each count as a book. As long as you're reading something new, it counts.
● Remember to have fun! (Unless you're allergic or diametrically opposed to it.)

Finished Reading:
1. Beastly -- Alex Flinn

(Not exactly that good, in my opinion. The cover had Vanessa Hudgens and the other guy on it from the movie version, so that spoiled the book quite a lot for me -- I wrapped it with white paper and drew my own cover xD. I should post it here... xd )
