ZaraS  *book reviewer | 2365 comments Hi Adriana.


Please sign me up for 5. Thanks.

Any hints as to where we can find a link to the 2014 releases?

Adriana are we meant to nominate how many we want to do or do we have to do every category? I think I may have misread the rules that's all.

message 9: by Brian (new)

Brian (brianfinn) | 638 comments I'd also like to read more new releases. I actually have yet to read a book published this year even.

Sign me up for 8 -please and thank you!


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

Looks like there are 20 categories, so I'll aim for all 20.


message 11: by Adriana (last edited Nov 24, 2013 08:07PM) (new)

Adriana | 3888 comments @Jodi- Awesome! Glad to have you (:
@Zara- You can do as many categories as you want. You know how there is voting going around on Goodreads on the best books? Well that's where we get the different categories for this challenge so no need to nominate.

Some lists:
YA Novels of 2014
YA Debuts 2014
Historical Fiction 2014
Middle Grade Novels of 2014
Most Anticipated Mysteries of 2014

A good many lists had weird books on there so I didn't add those. I would have to search around more for specific book categories later on if you want (:


message 12: by Adriana (last edited Nov 24, 2013 08:12PM) (new)

Adriana | 3888 comments @Sibyl- Done! Good luck (:
@Megan- Signed you up!
@Brian- I really need to read some 2013 books too. I've read some but not many from the ones being voted on the Goodreads Choice Awards.
@Talia- Awesome Talia! Updated your goal.
