Great list too BTW!

That's for #10 Cassie - good choice; do you have any of the rest chosen yet?
Planet of the Apes Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boulle


message 20: by Cassie (new)

Cassie Hawkings (chawk1993) | 10 comments No, I'm afraid I'm a bit tight on reading time this month as I'm back at Uni doing my final assignment. I do have other books I wanna read but I don't know if they are within this challenge's guidelines.


message 21: by Brenda, Aussie Authors Queen (new)

Brenda | 66926 comments Mod
Maybe you'd be best to only do the monthly challenges then Cassie. This one is over 3 months with 13 books for that time. Whereas the monthly are only 1 book:) The March challenge will be released soon so you might be able to put that book into March:) Good luck at Uni:)

Yes - lots of laughs even though it was a mystery. I have to confess most of my mirth was due to being well out of my teens and just relating to how the teenage characters talked and thought. Just SO accurate. But the main character is very sassy and cracks jokes. Yep I thought it was funny :)

If The Rosie Project and World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War are classed as humerous fiction then Kaz Delaney's books are more humorous :)

I started reading Patrick Taylor's series for the St Patrick's Day category last year. I know the Irish category this year will be filled with the second in the series, An Irish Country Village. Some of the other categories I'm still not so sure about, but I'm thinking about it!
