CHALLENGE: 2012 Books Won Challenge

I've been wary of committing to too many challenges this year, as I tend to do so poorly on them. However this is one that I can't pass up! The 2012 Books Won Challenge is hosted by Teddy of So Many Precious Books, So Little Time.

This challenge is intended to motivate us to read some of those books that we've been lucky enough to have won. I know I am in dire need of such motivation!

The Levels are:

Honorable Mention: Read 1-3 book you won.
Bronze: Read 4-6 books you won.
Silver: Read 7-9 Books you won.
Gold: Read 10 or more books you won.

The Rules: 
     1. You must write a review for each book that you read for it to count.  If you do not have a blog you can write your reviews on a place like Amazon, Powell's, Chapters, Goodreads, etc.

     2.Crossovers with other challenges are okay and you can join this challenge anytime throughout the year.

     3. Audiobooks and ebooks count, as long as you won them. 

     4. You can change up levels but cannot go back down a level.  

     5. You don't have to make a list ahead of time for this challenge but you can if you want to.
I am going for Bronze. Here are some of the books on my list to read...
  1. Swamplandia! by Karen Russell
  2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
  3. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
  4. Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War by Karl Marlantes
  5. The Passage by Justin Cronin
  6. All Different Kinds of Free by Jessica McCann
So let's get to them! 

  1. The Passage by Justin Cronin
  2. Divergent by Veronica Roth 
  3. The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh 
  4. The Warmest December by Bernice McFadden 
  5. The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian
