Another challenge! This challenge is something that I need to do because I have couple of books which are quite large that I want to read.So we'll start off with two and if I finish them , we'll upgrade.
The books that are suitable for this challenge are ones which have over 700 pages. o_O

2 Books - Chamomile Lover

I am doing this challenge because the books that I read don't really vary. So I am hoping this challenge will introduce me to new genres and maybe I will find a new genre that I enjoy reading.

Okay lets be honest ,  I am really only doing this challenge to get adorable cupcakes on my page. 

Before each month starts I will post a  list of books that I am going to be reading(attempt to read) that month. Or potential books if I don't own them already. Books that will be in red are going to be the potential books.Books in black are going to be the books I already own and know for certain I am going to attempt to read.

The Journey Will Begin In 2012...

Welcome ,
Fellow Readers.

I have created this blog to review books , keep track of my challenges and just to have fun. Now you're wondering , have can you have fun running a blog? To be honest... I have no idea, but everyone else seems to enjoy so I thought I would join in

I  generally read Adult Fiction : Historical, Drama, Mystery, Cultural, Science Fiction and sometimes Horror.
However I want to start reading Young Adult Novels. I, of course have read Harry Potter and it's an amazing work of fiction and also the fuel to my reading passion. When I read I hope to find gems like HP, that will transfer me into another world. A world that I long for after I read the novel.
In addition I have read 'The Hunger Games' - Love.
And of course 'The Twilight Saga'. Honestly I enjoyed the first book 'Twilight', however as the story progressed I started to get annoyed with Bella and Edward and their relationship. In my opinion 'The Twilight Saga' is a cliche story about a love triangle. The only difference is , is that it has supernatural beings included.

2012 will be the year that I will widen my Young Adult reads.

This blog will be a personal challenge for me as I have commitment issues.
I hope I can stick to it.

I will end here.
