Lozza (atbookends) | 17 comments Good luck. Im a bit behind on my challenge but its a challenge of 50. Big books

Christina Pilkington Thanks! I was thinking about making my challenge 50, and I probably will wind up reading that many anyway since most the books I like to read are usually longer, but I wanted to set it lower at first since this is my first time doing this challenge. With homeschooling two kids and setting myself a challenge of reading 125 books this year, I hope I didn't set the bar too high!

Ana Luisa (analureads) Good luck with your challenge! Since you have chosen many great big books to read, I'm sure you'll get around to them all ;) Also, wanting to know what you'll think about The Name of the Wind, since I'm considering reading it sometime.

Christina Pilkington Thanks, Ana! I'm pretty excited about this list. I've had both Rothfuss books since October of last year, so I really need to read them soon. I'll post what I think of them as soon as I read them, but so many of my friends have loved the books that I can't see me not liking them, too. I'd also love to read the Codex Alera books by Jim Butcher, too. I'm listening to his Harry Dresden files on Audible now and loving them.

Christina Pilkington Thanks for encouragement! I probably should have set it lower and then upped it later in the year, but I'll see how it goes :)
