Crystal Starr Light (crystalstarrlight) | 16 comments It's a little late in coming, but the goal is still to finish 12 books that have been collecting dust on my bookshelf! I climbed Pike's Peak last year, and I'm gonna do it again!

Sam (aramsamsam) Good luck with your challenge, Crystal! I haven't read any of those, but will nevertheless return every once in a while to read your thoughts!

Sam (aramsamsam) Woohoo, Crystal! Hope you enjoyed your first book? How did you like it?

Ehhhhhh...it could have been worse. There were aspects I loved and I did like the writing, but it's definitely a book I regret buying on hardcover. I'll be selling/donating that one for sure.

Jessika (jessika_56) Great job so far!


Crystal Starr Light (crystalstarrlight) | 16 comments 1 X - Delirium

3 X - Crusade (DNF at 14%)
4 X - Everneath (DNF at 21%)
5 X - Secret Weapon
6 X - Against the Empire
7 X - The Crazy School
8 X - The Last Empress
9 IP - Sabriel

I also read around 18 single issue comics from 2013 and 2014 Free Comic Book Day, but I won't include those because of their length.

I am REALLY proud of how far I've come! I still have nearly half a year and I'm hoping to get more than the required 12!

4 X - Everneath (DNF at 21%)
5 X - Secret Weapon
6 X - Against the Empire
7 X - The Crazy School
8 X - The Last Empress
9 X - Sabriel
10 X - The Raft (I'm including this one because I added it in 2013, although I typically like to include older books in my quest)

Only two left! But my goal is to get through more than that to be honest.

Thanks for all the support and encouragement :)

I feel so proud that I got all these done and with half the year done! I'm going to try for the next tier, Mount Blanc - I may not make it, but I'm going to try!

Hopefully, it will be okay for me to create a thread in Mount Blanc and move this list over to there.
