Cathy | 39 comments Looks like I successfully created my member corner! Right now, I'm not sure what challenges I'll do.. The thing is, I like some flexibility in what I read and I also am very willing to give up on a book mid-way through if I don't like it because time is at a premium these days!

Hmm.. I think my goal will be to do at least 30% of the challenges I decide to join.. that could be a better way for me to handle the challenges.. so, having said that, I'll add some to this list!

Adrienne | 8 comments That is a pretty daunting challenge. Good luck! A suggestion for the book based on a fairy tale,Cress. It's the first in a series.

Hmm. Perhaps this would cover 1 and 21.

Cathy | 39 comments Excellent! I'll add it!! Hmm.. it says it's third in the series??

message 10: by Adrienne (new)

Adrienne | 8 comments I believe it may be the first full novel of the series. Or the others were written as prequels.

message 11: by Marina (new)

Marina (sonnenbarke) Hi Cathy, I haven't read The Lunar Chronicles series yet, but I believe the first book is Cinder.

Adrienne | 8 comments Oops! You're right, Marina, my bad.
