Ooh fab! I've been meaning to read that anyway.

I finished my Cover and Bingo so needed something new. This should keep me busy for the rest of forever.... :)

Hmmm just looked up Sweet thinking that would be easiest but it's all romance.

Maybe Bitterblue if you haven't read the Graceling trilogy yet?

Ooh I have but reread would be good!! :D
Then Graceling and Fire could be 2 and 7!


message 15: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Nice!

If you're going retroactive, you could use Sea of Rust for 46, with the chapter numbers in binary :D


message 16: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7559 comments Oh yes! I'm trying not to backdate at all, but I wish I'd started earlier coz lots of things I've read this year would fit!

Not too worried about 46 as I'm reading through Discworld and they have no chapters! :D


message 17: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7559 comments 5 out of 50. Not a bad start if I do say so myself! XD

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4418 comments Definitely, some of them are really tough! We could BR some together too, After we finish Two Dark Reigns we should pick another YA from the list to tackle :)

Yes please I would love that! I'm really fancying YA at the moment.


message 23: by Charlie (new)

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4418 comments Fab, I'm loving all 3 of the YA books I'm reading right now, I'm lucky they're so good! Take a look at the list and let me know what you fancy.
