2010 Challenges

I tried two challenges this year. I know the year is not over yet, but I think it's time for a recap so I don't have to worry about it during the holidays.

I nailed the name challenge, albeit indirectly:
K- Keep Sweet by Greene
R- The Red Tree by Kiernan
I- Incarceron- Fisher
S- Ship Breaker by Bacigalupi
T-This Book is Overdue by Johnson
I- Inside Out- Snyder
E- 84, Charing Cross Road-Hanff

Even thought the "S" was supposed to be for Scorch Trials, when it came in and I started reading it, I knew I was in trouble because I was so lost. It had been a LONG time since I had read The Maze Runner.
At the same time, just once, I wanted to read all of the books nominated for the National Book Award, so I started on the nominees. I finished Ship Breaker, Lockdown and Mockingbird before I ran out of time. Then it hit me, Ship Breaker was an "S".
As for the challenge over at the Youth Services Corner, I think I may have to let that one go.
There is always 2011!

Congrats on all your great reads. I LOVED The Scorch Trials! It's my hubby's favourite book - even better than The Maze Runner.
I attempted the 2010 100 book reading challenge - but I'm only at 70 so don't think I'll make it!
