More Challenges and Such

So, I'm joining 2 more challenges. I don't know if I'll actually get to finish them, but I'll have fun trying. The first challenge is the 2010 Support Your Local Library Challenge, hosted by J. Kaye. My sister is a librarian for LA county, which has a wide variety of books. I want to support her library and read lots of books by checking out more books and actually reading them. (Instead of letting them collect dust and returning them unread like I lamely do sometimes.) I'm aiming for 100 books in a year.

1) Going Bovine by Libba Bray
2) The Devouring by Simon Holt
3) Soulstice by Simon Holt
4) Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
5) Sleepless by Thomas Fahy
6) Need by Carrie Jones
7) Liar by Justine Larbalestier
8) The Espressologist by Kristina Springer
9) Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
10) Captivate by Carrie Jones

The second challenge is the Graphic Novels Challenge 2010, hosted by Laza of Gimme More Books. I love to read graphic novels and am definitely going to read at least 10 in the next year.


1) Jack of Fables #6: The Big Book of War by Bill Willingham
2) Deadpool: Suicide Kings by Mike Benson
3) Deadpool: Dark Reign (Vol. 2) by Daniel Way
4) Dark Reign: Deadpool/Thunderbolts by Daniel Way
5) Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter: The Laughing Corpse, Vol. 2 by Laurell K. Hamilton
6) American McGee's Grimm by Dwight L. Macpherson
7) Chew by John Layman
8) The Walking Dead #11: Fear the Hunters
9) Fables #13: The Great Fables Crossover by Bill Willingham
10) Marvel Zombies Return by David Wellington
11) Path of the Planeswalker by Doug Beyer
12) Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1 by Stephenie Meyer
13) Deadpool #3: X Marks the Spot by Daniel Way
14) Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8, #6: Retreat by Joss Whedon
15) Ania Blake, Vampire Hunter: The Laughing Corpse by Laurell K. Hamilton
16) Unwritten by Mike Carey

I hope I get to read more fun books this next school semester to keep these challenges going.
