Fall into Reading 2012
Fall into Reading is a great challenge hosted every year by Katrina @ Callapidder Days. Fall into Reading is a no-stress challenge where you create a list of books you want to read this fall, and then try and read them by December 21st.
I took part in Fall into Reading last year and while I had a ton of fun, I also set my reading goal waaaaay too high. This year I'm taking a more relaxed approach and only choosing 5 books. It's enough to feel like a challenge, especially as I have no idea what to read at the moment, but at the same time feels achievable.
My reading list:
Nevermore by Kelly Creagh - I've heard so many awesome things about this one but it took the release of the sequel for me to finally pick up a copy. The characters sound fun, the romance sounds sweet but it's the connection to Poe that caught my attention as I love his work.
Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake - I read Anna Dressed in Blood last year after my sister treated me to a copy and I loved it so I'm not sure why I have yet to read my copy of the sequel. I'm hoping it's as creepy as the first.
Outpost by Ann Aguirre - Recently I read Enclave (the first in the Razorland series). I picked it up thinking I'd read a chapter or two, and ended up reading half the book in a single sitting. Had I not been exhausted by that point I'd definitely have continued so I'm really looking forward to this.
Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick - I've been waiting for this to come out since I finished Silence last year. It's the final book in the Hush, Hush series and after the end of Silence I cannot wait to see what happens to Patch and Nora next.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater - Another preorder, but one with only days to go. I'm a huge fan of Maggie's writing so getting a copy was always my plan but when I saw the trailer I got really excited for this. It looks incredible!
