The book challenge I gave myself...Progress so far.

In July, shortly before I started writing here- I gave myself a challenge of reading 50 books by the last day of 2015 (December 31st). I have made great progress, but have yet to jot down in one place all the books that I have read thus far while trying to complete this challenge. So I figured I would do that now.

  1. "Doctor Who: Tales of Trenzalore" by Justin Richards
  2. "Doctor Who: Twelve Doctors, Twelve Stories" by Various Authors
  3. "Family Pictures" by Jane Green (I was actually surprised by how much I liked this book!)
  4. "17 Deadly Women through the Ages: True Crime" by Stephanie Glover (I was not impressed with this one.)
  5. "Quitting Cold Stone" by Sam Neumann
  6. "The Long and Faraway Gone" by Lou Berney (LOVED this one)
  7. "Twenty Eight and a Half Wishes" by Denise Grover Swank
  8. "The Fault in Our Pants" by Steve Lookner
  9. "Doctor Who: The Silurian Gift" by Mike Tucker (I wasn't completely thrilled by this one, but it was good- if a little short)
  10. "Wantin" by Truth Devour (This was really hard to get through, I hated the way it was written)
  11. "Whiplash River" by Lou Berney
  12. "Glassford Girl 3" by Jay J. Falconer
  13. "Gunshot Straight" by Lou Berney
  14. "River Dream" by DWDavisRSL
  15. "The Boy from Buzby Beach" by DW Davis (Didn't think I needed to tag you on every single book DW)
  16. "Dreams Change" by DW Davis
  17. "Dreams Adrift" by DW Davis
  18. "Sea, Sand and Sabine" by DW Davis
  19. "A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey
  20. "Dress your Family in Denim and Corduroy" by David Sedaris
  21. "Letters from the Loony Bin" by Thatcher C Nalley
  22. "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" by Ransom Riggs
  23. "Hollow City" by Ransom Riggs
  24. "Thirty Four and a Half Predicaments" by Denise Grover Swank
  25. "Thirty Three and a Half Shennanigans" by Denise Grover Swank
  26. "Thirty Two and a Half Complications" by Denise Grover Swank
  27. "Thirty One and a Half Regrets" by Denise Grover Swank
  28. "Thirty and a Half Excuses" by Denise Grover Swank
  29. "Twenty Nine and a Half Reasons" by Denise Grover Swank

So with 21 more books to read before Dec 31, I have faith that I can get the challenge that I put to myself done, and maybe even exceed it a little bit.

Wow, that's a lot of books! I find I don't have time to read as much as I used to. I average about two to three books in a year, not counting re-reads. I'm currently reading Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed by Jared Diamond.

To have read 29 books since July is quite an accomplishment in itself. I feel certain you can reach and probably exceed your goal.

I think A Million Little Pieces is the only re-read on this list. Earlier this year I did re read both Paper Towns and The Fault in our Stars by John Green, usually at least once a year I re read To Kill a Mockingbird.

Ooh, the title of the book you are currently reading in intriguing, I'll have to check it out.

Well reading all five of your books definately helped! :)

and thanks, I think I can do it.
