Let the Challenges Begin! + Follow Friday

Q:  If you had to spend eternity inside the pages of a book which book would you choose and why?

 Well, being a part of Harry Potter world would be really fun especially without Voldemort to worry about (No matter how old I am, I still want that invitation to Hogwarts!), but going outside of cliche, I'd say Willie Wonka's chocolate factory. Mmmmm, happy thoughts.

  • I have no idea what I'm thinking! I'm probably one of the worst people ever at completing challenges. But it's that time of year when I go crazy I'm incredibly unrealistic optimistic about next year's reading! So here's my list (for now) of the challenges that I'm going to fail do during 2012!

Multi-Cultural Book Challenge!
The goal: Read 12 YA books written by muti-cultural/ethnic minorities OR featuring multi-cultural/ethnic minorities as main characters.

Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier

British Books Challenge (BBC)
Well now, how could I possibly pass up a challenge with a name like that? Even though I thought I was all done with challenge sign-ups for next year, this is one I've just got to add to the list.

my list on goodreads

Obviously, many books will fit in more than one category, but I'm going to try to avoid overlapping.

And there are actually a couple more really tempting challenges out there calling my name, but for the moment I'm trying to exercise some restraint. Wish me luck!! :)
