What I Avoided to Talk About...

Just to torture myself, I will state two facts you guys have probably heard me whine about way too many times this year.
1) I read 108 books last years
2) My goals was 120 books this year
3) I will totally not make that goal
4) I will probably be VERY far away from last year's goal, too

Now, all of this is probably not news to you (not to me, definitely!). And I just realized those were 4, not 2 facts which might explain my counting problems.
Anyway, what I didn't realize in my utter disappointment with myself was that I made almost every other challenge I signed up for! And when I say that, I mean, I managed to do preeeetttyyy well in all but one of them!

Goal: 11-20 books 

1) Graceling by Kristin Cashore
2) Fire by Kristin Cashore
3) The Diviners by Libba Bray
4) Cloaked by Alex Flinn
5) Tempest by Julie Cross
6) Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
7)Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
8) Gone by Michael Grant
9) Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
10) Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

11) The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong

19) Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
20) How To Save a Life by Sarah Zarr

I cannot even contain my excitement about this particular challenge! Before the challenge, I didn't like Paranormal Romance at all!!! Okay, that's not the point, because I still don't like the genre. However, I have discovered some really great books in it that are brilliant even though they are paranormal!

The last challenge I participated in was the Debut Author Challenge which I completely failed at. I remember reading Geek Girl and Prophecy at the beginning of the year, but those are literally the only Debuts I have read the entire year which is just sad. I honestly feel bad about it!

Anyway, how well have you done at your challenges this year? What are you doing to get as many book read as possible before the year is over?
