2010 Challenges: 1 Completed, 1 Abandoned
This year has been filled with fun teen chick lit, and today was the official tenth book that I labeled with the 10 in '10 Teen Chick Lit Challenge on my blog. I always love chick lit, whether it is for teens or adults, so the challenge was a great idea, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Here are the books that I read for the challenge in reverse chronological order, even though they are not the only books on my books read list from this year that could be categorized as teen chick lit:
Return to Paradise
Swoon at Your Own Risk
Rules of Attraction
Far From You
Prada and Prejudice
If you want to read more about my thoughts about any of these books, just click on the 10 in '10 Teen Chick Lit Challenge label at the bottom of the post to see all challenge posts.
The other good news is that I still have a lot of the original books that I mentioned from my bookshelf still waiting to be read. I buy more books faster than I can read those I already have, so I always have a teen chick lit book on hand at all times!
As for The Story Siren's 2010 Debut Author Challenge, December 31st is quickly approaching, and it is apparent that I will not be reaching the challenge minimum of 12 debut author books, let alone my personal goal of twenty. Different aspects, such as beginning my doctoral program and needing to shift some of my reading priorities resulted in this. Yet, there are still advantages to signing up for the challenge, even though I hate starting something and not finishing... Because of the challenge, I actually bought a lot of the books that I intended to read for the challenge, so I will read them eventually.
