Joining More Challenges!

I simply can't resist all of the fantastic challenges book bloggers keep putting in front of my face! Here are more that I'm joining!

I'm joining the YA Dystopia Challenge at Bart's Bookshelf

I shall consider reading (all books are already in my To Be Read pile!):
The Knife of Never Letting Go and the Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness
Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden
Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

My goal should really the be the Pfeffer book since it croses with Dewey's book challenge.

Debbie's Revisit Your Childhood Favorites Challenge which aligns nicely with my L.J. Smith Challenge. And the conversations Debbie and I have on Twitter every other day, lol!

I'm supposed to choose five books but I'm not sure which ones I want to choose yet. Here's what I'm considering!
The rest of the Vampire Diaries books
The Forbidden Game Trilogy by L.J. Smith
Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Any book by John Benton I can get my hands on!

Trisha's Pretty Little Liars Series by Sara Shepard Challenge

I'd never heard of this series before but I'm getting to know Trisha and she's pretty cool! She assures me these books are good and I've already obtained the first one so we'll see how it goes! This challenge is looonnng giving me plenty of time to finish! :)

And finally....a non reading challenge, Becky of Operation Actually Read Bible is hosting a challenge to listen to Handel's Messiah at least once between December and April. I love this idea! So I'll be trying to listen to it once each church season (Advent and Lent) and I'm really looking forward to it.

That's it for now! I hope you are planning to join in some of these challenges as well! :) Leave me a comment and tell me if you're joining any of these challenges or what you think about the reading I have ahead of me!

You are just a brave soul! They all sound good, especially the childhood favorites. I've been nicely plowing through my challenges, but I've decided to walk the line here and get as many of them knocked out as possible before the new year. We all know what January is like!

Good luck!

As you know I'll be joinging the Dystopia Challenge. But I'm contemplating the Pretty Little Liars challenge. I think I'll wait on that one until after I determine if I like book one.

You are a glutton for punishment! Good luck with all the challenges!

Arghhhh. I have the Pretty Little Liar books here and now you tell me there is a challenge? I'm not supposed to join more challenges. Yikes!!!!!

I love the idea of listening to Hendel's Messiah. Thanks for pointing me to Becky's blog, too.

I thought Life as We Knew It was pretty good. Best of luck with these challenges.

Trish @ Love, Laughter, Insanity said...

Oh man! Good luck with all of this. I'm all challenged out and my coworker was browsing my blog the other day and said, "Trish, there's no way you'll finish all these challenges!" *hangs head in shame* :)

I just got The Knife of Never Letting Go--might start it during the 'thon.

I was so excited to see Bart create the Dystopia YA challenge! And you say there's a Pretty Little Liars challenge too? Awesome! I've read the first book and it was really great.
