2012 Book Challenge

Read at least 30 books.

I'm behind on this challenge after being busy with the move and job hunting. I'm currently reading book number 21. I'll still try to meet the goal, but I'm not sure if I'll make it. (Updated October 11, 2012)

Read a new or unfamiliar genre each month.

sci fi: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Read my review here.)
graphic novel: Persepolis I and Persepolis II by Marjane Satrapi (Review pending.)
humor: Bossypants by Tina Fey (Read my review here.)
young adult: The Fault in our Stars by John Green (Review pending.)
