Okay, so I’ve sort of failed on my reading challenges this year. Especially the part where I review the books… Anyways, while I might not do reviews for these (I honestly haven’t decided yet) I wanted to list the remaining books that I’ve read but not reviewed with the ratings I feel they deserve. I will, at the very least, still do posts of best/worst even if I don’t include anything else. Also, since the remaining 19.5 books were from three authors, I’m splitting them up by author.
Books from Jim Butcher:
- Furies of Calderon
- Academ’s Fury
- Cursor’s Fury
- Captain’s Fury
- Princeps’s Fury
- First Lord’s Fury
Books from Orson Scott Card:
- Speaker for the Dead
- Children of the Mind
- A War of Gifts: An Ender Story
- Ender in Exile
- Ender’s Shadow
- Shadow of the Hegemon
- Shadow Puppets
- Shadow of the Giant
- First Meetings: In Ender’s Universe
Books from Christopher Paolini:
— Okay, I haven’t finished this one, but I’m over halfway done… The holidays really screw up my reading time. :-(
Anyways, my only resolution for this coming year to review one book a week. Granted, I’m likely to read more than one book a week, but I’m going to do a decent review on one book every week. Every Friday there will be a new book review. In fact, I’m hoping to have a Monday-Wednesday-Friday thing going at some point, but for now we’re shooting for Friday book reviews. ^_^
For this first week of the new year, though, I’m going to wrap-up my mostly failed challenges from 2011 and finish up “Inheritance” so I can review it this Friday, the 6th. Also, I will pick two challenges – and only two challenges – to complete this year. I know that I had previously said I was just going to continue the 2011 challenges until I finished them all, but some of them just really didn’t appeal to me. I chose them strictly to force myself to read a few books that I didn’t really want to read and it didn’t work out so well. Therefore, my challenge choices are:
Okay, you’re confused. I said “two challenges” and it looks like there are three in that list, huh? Well, I’m not really considering the “read the Bible” a challenge and it’s just for me, not with a challenge hosted on someone’s site. I’ve been meaning to reread it for a while and I figure since my aunt gave me a beautiful edition when Jaime and I got married that it’s only right that I read it.
I’ll be posting some wrap-up and entry posts over the next couple days. :-) Happy new year!
