CHALLENGE: Fall Into Reading 2010

I guess I'm a little late jumping (or "falling") into this reading challenge, which means I won't be eligible for the prizes being awarded at the end of the challenge. However I need a little focus for my reading, so I am joining in anyway. This is one of my favorite challenges after all!

This challenge runs from September 22 through December 20, 2010. There are no rules regarding how many books you have to read, or any such thing. It's simply a time to enjoy some reading!

So here is my list of books. I don't really expect to get through all of these books (I've said before what a slow reader I am), but it will help me to stay focused on what I need to read the remainder of this year. The dates in parentheses are the dates by which I want to review the books:
  1. Queen's Pawn by Christy English, 400 pages (October 15, 2010)
  2. Falling Home by Karen White, 352 pages  (November 15, 2010)
  3. Vixen by Jillian Larkin, 421 pages (November 30, 2010) 
  4. Purgatory Inn by Ernesto Jose Herrera, 196 pages (December 31, 2010) 
  5. California Roll by John Vorhaus, 264 pages (December 31, 2010)
  6. Darling Jim by Christian Moerk, 320 pages  (December 31, 2010)
  7. The Maze Runner by James Dashner, 416 pages 
  8. Under the Dome by Stephen King, 1088 pages  
  9. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, 400 pages 
  10. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, 390 pages
  11. Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld, 464 pages
Sign up over at Callapidder Days, and get going today! It's too late to qualify for the prizes, but it's a fun challenge anyway!

Okay, I read Under the Dome and you've got your work cut out for you! I used to love Stephen King but then his books got a little too . . . odd. . . for my taste but this one was pretty good. I generally prefer Dean Koontz. Have you read his The Taking?!?!
Do you read YA at all? My son brought home some books from school a while back that were really good for YA - The Compound by S.A. Bodeen and Dark Life by Kat Falls. Of course, I think you have your hands full at the moment!
