2013 Challenges


I'm so excited to take part in my first DAC! I've started making a list of the 2013 debuts I will be reading and reviewing, and I will add to this list whenever I hear of a new awesome debut. Of course, I may remove books as well if I think there are too many for me to read and review. The 11th grade does not give you a lot of free time!
This list is organized according to the month of release, but the order in which I read and review them may be different. There is a strikethrough on the books I have read so far. Also, click on the titles to read my review!

I absolutely love paranormal books, so I'm freaking excited to be taking part in the 2013 Paranormal Reading Challenge! There are so many paranormal books I'm dying to read. For this challenge, one paranormal creature will be featured per month. I will do my best to stick to reading books with the featured creature of the month.

I have to say I'm really excited for this one. There are SO MANY sequels I have to read next year! Not only the ones coming out in 2013, but the ones that came out this year that I haven't read yet. This challenge will give me an incentive to finally read them! This one is a lot easier than the above challenges, since there aren't many rules. I can read whatever I want, whenever I want, as long as it comes after the first book in a series. So here is a list of all the sequels I will be reading in 2013. My list is alphabetical, though of course this isn't the order I will read the books in. There is a strikethrough on the books I have read so far, and you can click on the titles to read my review.
