Harry Potter Series Challenge

This challenge is hosted by The Reading Fever. This challenge requires me to…

Whether you have read the series 30 times, just once, or are–like me–hiding your ignorance in the closet, this challenge is for you. Don’t let the spirit of Potter die with the last movie. Bring it back by reading the books!

The challenge:

Read all seven books in the Harry Potter series during 2012.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

  • The challenge will run from January 1st, 2012, to December 31st, 2012. Books read before or after this time frame do not count. You can join anytime until the challenge ends.
  • Books can be in any format: Print, ebook, audiobook, etc..
  • You do not have to review the books to participate, although you are more than welcome to. If you choose not to review, you can also do the following and still be eligible for prizes.
  • Answer the discussion questions each month
  • Create a post talking about each book after you finish (any topic)
  • Just update your kickoff post after each book
  • Those without blogs can leave a comment with their thoughts/review/review link.
  • Because this is open to those who have already read HP, old reviews will be accepted. Whether you have read the books within the challenge time frame is on the honor system, so please be honest!

I’m planning on reading AND reviewing the entire Harry Potter series.


Twilight Series Challenge 2012

This challenge is hosted by Pages of Forbidden Love. This challenge asks me to…

Lately, due to Breaking Dawn Part I being released in theaters, everyone is talking about the Twilight Series.
Personally I read the books before the hype started to gather about them but I do greatly enjoy this series.
The last time I actually picked up one of the Twilight books in the series to read was back a week after Breaking Dawn released in 2008ish. So it has been several years since I have read the books.
I have been thinking lately that I would love to go back to re-read this series to see how I feel about it now that paranormal stories have overtaken the teen book world.
I always wonder if I will still enjoy the books or if I’m jaded now after all the paranormal stories.
Will I still love Twilight?

In order to find out the answer to my questions I plan on re-reading the series in 2012.
I thought it would be a great reading challenge to create for the 2012 year.

I would love to make this a big event where I have discussions each month on one of the books and I would possibly see if people want to do guest posts and also do great giveaways.

Signing Up:
So if you would like to commit yourself to reading the four books that make up the Twilight Series then please feel free to grab the button, write up a post on your blog saying you are going to participate, and then come back here and link your post to sign up.
