Spring Reading Thing sign-up

I love the challenges hosted by Callapidder Days because they are no-pressure. I just have to try to read what I say I'm going to read. Lately, I've been saying that I am going to read a lot more than I actually have. So for the Spring Reading Thing, I am going to include books from other challenges, a book or two that I claimed I was going to finally read in 2011, some review books, and at least one book I "just had to have".

So here's the breakdown:

Debut Author Challenge:
XVI by Julia Karr
Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard*
The Contemps Challenge:
Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler
The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers

Review Books:
Bumped by Megan McCafferty
Textual Healing by Eric Smith
Boyfriends with Girlfriends by Alex Sanchez

Books I Will Read in 2011:
Wicked by Gregory Maguire - gotta read this one, I'm seeing the musical in June

Just Had to Have:
Fallout by Ellen Hopkins
Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr

*also will fulfill The Contemps Challenge

Anything else will just be a BONUS!

If you’d like to participate, here’s what you need to do:
  • Create a list of some books you’d like to read or finish this spring.
  • Feel free to set some additional reading goals (such as reading to your kids two hours per week, getting through your pile of magazines, etc.). This is completely optional.
  • Write a blog post including the list of books you want to read and any additional goals you’ve set, and get ready to post it on your blog on March 20th.
  • Visit my blog on Sunday, March 20th to sign up. I’ll have a Mr. Linky set up that morning, so you can submit a link to your personal Spring Reading Thing post, and it will be added to the master list.
  • Read! Work on your goals throughout Spring 2011.
  • Report your results. Write another blog post in June to let everyone know how you did.
  • Have fun! Visit other participants to see what they’re reading. Write reviews if you’re so inclined. But most of all, enjoy your spring reading.

  1. Looks good! I read Wicked and while I enjoyed parts of it, other parts...not so much. :) But I've heard the musical is awesome and I'd love to see it someday! Thanks for being part of the challenge -- enjoy your spring reading!
