Mercurial Musings

on books & life

Because I can’t say no to a challenge and because I love to read, I’ve decided to participate in a few reading challenges in 2012. Most of the challenges will have some crossover, so that makes it a little easier and all seem fun. Here’s what I’ve signed on for so far.

Book Chick City’s 100 Books in a Year 2012 Challenge

Book Chick City came up with this challenge and it will be my primary challenge. I made it through almost 75 books this year, so I’m hoping to get to 100 next year. We’ll see . . .

Book To Movie Challenge

Martina “Bookaholic” has come up with a great challenge–to compare the films to the books. This could be new releases or re-reading old classics and comparing them to their films. I think this will be a fun challenge. The goal is 12 in 2012.

2012 Debut Author Challenge

The Story Siren is hosting a YA Debut author challenge–read 12 YA/Middle Grades books by 2012 debut authors. If you’ve spent any time on my blog, you know I love YA and am always looking for new authors, so this challenge should be easy. I already have a list of titles in mind.

The Books I Should Have Read in 2011

Reading With Martinis has designed a challenge for all of us who have ginormous TBR piles. This will be my chance to catch up on all those books I meant to read but never got to.

I’d  also love to find a Steampunk, Fantasy, or Sci-Fi challenge to add to my list, but this should keep me busy for now.  (Do you know of one?)

It would be great if some of you could join in on the reading challenge fun. What books are you looking forward to reading in 2012? Any suggestions for titles I should be adding to my challenge lists?
