Reading Challenges 2014

Reading challenges - not just for elementary school! Who knew? I'm new to the world of book blogging and I'm learning more every day. Today I learned that there are challenges across the blogging community! Unfortunately, I'm six months late to the party, so I'll only be choosing a couple to participate in.

The Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge just sounds like a lot of fun! Since there are actually a few books sitting on my "to read" shelf that would qualify, I figured, what the heck!

Here are a couple I plan to read for this challenge:

A Discovery of Witches, by Deborah Harkness
Witchful Thinking, by H.P. Mallory
The James Potter series, by G. Norman Lippert

To start, I'll commit to the Initiate level (1-5 books), but I may go over.

If you'd like to sign up, visit Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf and add yourself to the list!

The second challenge I'm signing up for this summer is the 2014 Horror Reading Challenge. This challenge appeals to me for the same reasons as the above - I kind of enjoy scary and/or paranormal literature (a lot). I've already gotten a bit of a head start on this challenge. Here are a couple reviews from this year:

The story of her holding an orange, by Milos Bogetic
The Shuddering, by Ania Ahlborn

I'm committing to the Running Scared level (1-5 books) for this challenge. Again, it's possible I'll go over. It's also possible that this challenge could coincide with the first!
