CHALLENGE: Fall Into Reading 2009

Katrina of Callapidder Days is hosting the Fall Into Reading 2009 Challenge, and I'm joining in.

Here’s a brief recap of how to be a part of Fall Into Reading 2009, as outlined on her blog:

* Make a list of books you want to read (or finish reading) this fall. Your list can be as long or as short as you’d like. (Also, feel free to modify your list during the challenge if it’s not working for you.)

* Write a blog post containing your list and submit it to this post using the Mr. Linky on her site.

* Get reading! The challenge goes from September 22nd through December 20th.

* Check out other participants’ lists and add to your own to-read-someday pile!

* Write a post about your challenge experience in December, telling everyone all about whether you reached your goals and how Fall Into Reading went for you. But remember: this is a low-pressure challenge that should be fun.

So here is my list, which I don't really have much hope of getting through. I'm a pretty slow reader, as I spend too much time blogging. But here is a list of the books I would love to get through:
  1. Mother of the Believers by Kamran Pasha (DONE)
  2. The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran (DONE)
  3. The Postmistress by Sarah Blake (DONE)
  4. Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy
  5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (DONE)
  6. The Road by Cormac McCarthy (abandoned for now)
  7. City of the Dead by Brian Keene (DONE)
  8. Confessions of an Ivy League Pornographer by Sam Benjamin
  9. Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz
  10. Dark Ruby by Lisa Jackson
  11. A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah
  12. The Shack by William P. Young (currently reading)
  13. Hunter by Campbell Jeffreys
  14. Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn
  15. Liquid Soul by Matthew Carter
  16. Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson (DONE)
  17. Showdown by Ted Dekker
  18. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

So that's my list. We'll see how it goes!

As much as I like this adorable challenge button I've sworn off challenges for a while. Looks like you have a good list - I want to read the Moran book (will watch for your review). Good luck!

I think I might actually join this one. Maybe it'll motivate me to read all the review books I got and are untouched.

Good luck with the challenge...I have been contemplating this one myself.

Nice stack of books for your fall reading enjoyment.

Good list. A nice mix!

The Road is one of my all-time favorites. It's the kind of book that haunts you for a long time to come!

If you have The Hunger Game on your list, you might as well add Catching Fire -- you're going to love them both!

Happy Reading!
