Cait (clickcait) | 480 comments Not only do we have a bunch of the same books on our list, we also have the same name. Very cool.

I like your choices and you're off to a great start. Good luck with the challenge. :-)

Paula | 13 comments I don't know how you can just read one Harry Potter book, I'd want to go back through the whole series! (Unless you already read the others before the start of the challenge).

I keep seeing Cinder pop up all over, it looks like an interesting book.

I was doing Harry Potter December, but I got my books in the mail on the 16th of December so I had to read The Deathly Hallows book in January!

Hooray for name twins! Plus, it seems like you have great taste! Haha.

Cait (clickcait) | 480 comments I think Harry Potter books are like biscuits, you can't just have one. ;-)

Also our parents must've had good taste. ;-)

Narma | 49 comments Caitlin how did you add those star reviews in your list? Is there an html code for it?


Cait the Bookish Bansídhe (bookishbansidhe) You can just copy and paste them. That's what I did. There's probably some ALT+some number code, but I just googled "Star Text" and copied them. :)


Cait the Bookish Bansídhe (bookishbansidhe) Paula, I have just finished Cinder and although I found it very predictable, I highly recommend it!

Good to know, thanks for the recommendation! I've found I don't mind a story being predictable as long as it's enjoyable along the way :) I think I'm going to do that one for week 37, a book set in the future (it sound like it's set in the future anyway).

It's the same for me. It was very good. You could definitely read it for week 37. I hope you like it!
