2012 Blog Challenges

I’m going to participate in a few blog challenges this year.  I decided that three is probably enough for a rookie book blogger, especially since I’ve failed the 30 Days of Books Challenge so spectacularly!


2012 Sci-Fi Challenge with Curiosity Killed the Bookworm – one Science Fiction book per month.

War Through the Generations is running a WWI Challenge for 2012.  I’m planning to enter at the Wade level, meaning I will read 4-10 WWI-themed books.

The 2012 TBR Pile Challenge at Roof Beam Reader sounds like a really great opportunity to clean up my bookshelves and my Goodreads list.
My 2012 TBR Pile Challenge List:
1. A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
2. Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
4. P.S. I Love You by Cecilia Ahern
5. The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brian
6. Burmese Days by George Orwell

11. The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir

One thought on “2012 Blog Challenges”

  1. Glad you're joining us for the 2012 TBR Pile Challenge! You've got some of my favorites on your list. I love Tolstoy, though I haven't read Brothers Karamazov yet. I hear wonderful things about Stephen King's On Writing as well.

    The Things They Carried is amazing, as is Blindness. Looking forward to your reviews!

    Good luck!
