2012 Book Blogger Challenge!

I just saw something about a 2012 Book Blogger Recommendation challenge that I thought looked really interesting! This challenge is to read a certain number of book from the 266 book list that 34 bloggers have recommended. You can find out more about this challenge at Reading with Tequila. This is my post saying I want to join this challenge! I just decided there are many books on the recommended list that I'm planning on reading anyway- I might as well join the challenge! :) For now I'm going to join on the first level at 5 books- I may up my pledge later if I have time but for now, I'm going to say just 5. If you don't want to join the challenge then you can just check yourself against the list and see how many you've read and look for new book suggestions! 

I've read 20 books from the entire list and 6 books from the top 25 list! Right now my plan is to read 3 more books from the top 25, Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, and something else! :)

I've included the top 25 lists with the books I want to read bolded- have you read any of the top 25? Do you have any books you wish had made the top list? Leave me a comment and let me know! :) 


  1. Ohh, this sounds interesting! Perhaps I should take a look, as I forgot signing up for most challenges I wanted to do this year... If it has books I wanna read it shouldn't be a problem. ;)

    Also, your list rocks! :D Lots of good looking (or awesome judging by my reading experience) books!

  2. I have this challenge addiction right now. :) I picked this challenge because it does have books that I've been wanting to read anyway so I'm hoping it will be fun! :)

  3. "The Last Unicorn" is my favorite out of that list. The movie is okay, but the book is a masterpiece of fiction.
