My 2010 Book Challenge List as of today...

My 2010 Book Challenge List

Every year I think to myself that I would undertake some kind of reading challenge but each year I don't sign myself up to one and on reflection I realise that actually I do read a lot of books! This year I am actively taking on a reading challenge which you can find more information about at Busy Bookworm Reviews website. So far, and I know it is part of the challenge so I do need to do it, I haven't written any reviews... they will come just give me more time! So far I am in the process of reading number 7 on my list and hope to write a few reviews before my holiday is over.

Here is my list - although not complete as I know there will be books I won't read and more that I will. The purple books are those that I have chosen to read myself, the pink are for my own book club and the green are for the library book club (note the differences!!).

1. The Subtle Knife – Phillip Pullman (January)
2. The Resurrectionist – James Bradley (January)
3. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith (February)
4. Whistleblower – Tess Gerritsen (March)
5. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly – Jean Dominique Bauby (March)
6. Twilight – Stephenie Meyer (April)
7. Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov (April)
