Book Chick City: Reading Challenges

I've decided to join a couple of fun challenges over at Book Chick City!

The first challenge I'm joining is the Mystery & Suspense Reading Challenge

• Timeline: 01 Jan 2011 - 31 Dec 2011

• Rules: To read TWELVE (12) mystery & suspense novels in 2011 (12 is the minimum but you can read more if you wish!)

• You don't have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. Also if you do list them upfront you can change them, nothing is set in stone! The books you choose can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.

• You can join anytime between now and the later part of next year.

• At the beginning of Jan 2011, you will find a link to specific month to add your reviews. There will be a monthly prize too courtesy of the lovely Simon & Schuster - you must be signed up to the challenge and add the link to your review to be entered into the monthly prize draw.


The second challenge is the 2011 Stephen King Challenge.  I'm so excited about this one.  I'd be reading Stephen King regardless, but I'm excited that so many others will be, too.  Stephen King discussions!  *Bliss*

  4. I think I will take the challenge! I have only ever read 2 Stephen King books, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, and Insomnia, but I loved them both. Insomnia gave me insomnia! I've always wanted to read Pet Cemetary so I think I shall...I'm new to blogging, but I think I'll be visiting your often! Thx!

  5. Ian - that's awesome. There are many great King books to be read! Pet Sematary is one of my favorites. I can't wait to hear what you think.
