Challenging Myself

I have decided that for the next 18 weeks left in 2014, I am going to read a book a week now that all my boyfriends wrestling shows have finished.

This idea came from Jessica Brody's self book in a day challenge and it is so I can get as close to my goodreads challenge as possible as I am not going to beat it as I need to read 21, maybe I will be able to read a book in less than a week and be able to sneak another in but we will see.

I will be starting my challenge on Monday September 1st as I am giving myself the weekend to finish reading the last few chapters of Jessica Brody's Unforgotten.

Here is a list of the Mondays in the year and what book I plan on reading that week some weeks it may change depending on what mood I am in and how much Uni work I have to do that week.

All these books have been taken from my 2014 reading list:

  1. Sept 1st - Echo by Alyson Noel
  2. Sept 8th - Until I Die by Amy Plum
  3. Sept 15th - Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  4. Sept 22nd - Mystic by Alyson Noel
  5. Sept 29th - If I Should Die by Amy Plum
  6. Oct 6th - Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
  7. Oct 13th - Horizon by Alyson Noel
  8. Oct 20th - Switched by Amanda Hocking
  9. Oct 27th - A Witch in Winter by Ruth Warburton
  10. Nov 3rd - Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
  11. Nov 10th - Someday, Someday Maybe by Lauren Graham

  14. Dec 1st - Entwined by Heather Dixon

  16. Dec 15th - Ascend by Amanda Hocking
  17. Dec 22nd - A Witch Alone by Ruth Warburton
  18. Dec 29th - Enchanted by Aletha Kontis
As you may have noticed series books have been separated as I cannot read a whole series in one go as I get bored of the characters if I do that and I would not want to finish the series so they are broken up by other series books or by single books.

This also means that the review's will now longer be posted on a Saturday but on a Sunday instead unless I manage to finish the book before then.

Currently Reading: Unforgotten by Jessica Brody
Read in 2014: 8/30

Happy reading all x

Wishlist Wednesday

The book of the week is....
18475593Winterspell by Claire Legrand
The clock chimes midnight, a curse breaks, and a girl meets a prince . . . but what follows is not all sweetness and sugarplums.

New York City, 1899. Clara Stole, the mayor's ever-proper daughter, leads a double life. Since her mother's murder, she has secretly trained in self-defense with the mysterious Drosselmeyer.

Then, on Christmas Eve, disaster strikes.

Her home is destroyed, her father abducted--by beings distinctly not human. To find him, Clara journeys to the war-ravaged land of Cane. 

Her only companion is the dethroned prince Nicholas, bound by a wicked curse. 

If they're to survive, Clara has no choice but to trust him, but his haunted eyes burn with secrets--and a need she can't define. 

With the dangerous, seductive faery queen Anise hunting them, Clara soon realizes she won't leave Cane unscathed--if she leaves at all.

Inspired by The NutcrackerWinterspell is a dark, timeless fairy tale about love and war, longing and loneliness, and a girl who must learn to live without fear.

This book looks amazing and sounds like a great read. Winterspell will hit stores on September 30th
