This is a combination of books I need to review as well as books I have on my TBR pile. Most of these books were strategically picked so that I can complete all the other reading challenges I am participating in. I think I should be able to get through all these, plus a few others.

Wish me luck! Let me know if you are joining so I can see your list!


  1. Impressive list! I joined too!

  2. @Peggy@Peggy Ann's Post Thanks Peggy...hopefully I am able to get to them all!

  4. Lots of great sounding picks in there. I haven't read any of those. Happy reading.

  5. Those are some interesting challenges. Good luck!

  6. Ah, a strategic list. I'm trying that approach too. I'm impressed by your list. Hope you have lots of fun!

  7. Great list - I'd love to read a lot of these, especially the Lisa See books, I really enjoyed Snowflower and the Secret Fan and keep meaning to read her other books. Good luck with your challenge!

  12. Looks great, Kristin! I love how you incorporated some fun seasonable books. I always forget to do that! Thanks for being part of FIR '11!

  13. This is an amazing list--and you read even more than I do! I just today finished #92 of 2011, and you're well over 100! :)

  14. That a pretty long list -good luck. I recognize several authors on there, but not those particular titles. Enjoy!

  15. Wow, quite a long list! And I haven't heard of any of them! I wish you well in your reading.

  16. That is quite the list. I also haven't heard of any of them though. That is the problem with these challenges, I end up finding more books to read.
    enjoy your fall reading

  17. Awesome list. I look forward to reading your opinion of some of them so that I can add more to my addiction.

  18. Wonderful list! Have fun reading this fall!

  19. Great list!

    I really want to read Night Road by Kristin Hannah!

    Happy Reading! :)

  20. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! You have a great list here for the challenge...Peony in Love and Knit the Season are two that I really want to read :) Enjoy!

  21. Thanks for stopping by! I also love the Shopaholic books and so far am loving Mini Shopaholic! I haven't heard of any of the books on your list (shows me just how little I get out!) so I definitely want to look further into them to put a few on my TBR list! Thanks for sharing!

  22. Looks like a good list. I've read a handful and now may have to read a few more of these to my own "tbr" list. Agghhh. I've got too many already. :)
    Happy Reading!

  23. These look like some fun reads for the fall. Perfect to curl up with a hot chocolate, pretzels and M&Ms, and a cozy afghan!

  24. That is a LOT of books! But if you live up to your blog name, it will be easy! I have never read any James Patterson until this week at the lake. I picked up one that someone had left behind and could not put it down. I'm heading to my library today to see if I can find it since I left it behind. If not, I will definitely be buying it. Enjoy all your reads!

  25. I tried to pick a few to meet other challenges as well, although I didn't do a lot of challenges this year. I hope you enjoy your reading this fall!

  26. I have 25 books on my list too! I've never read any of the books you listed, but there are lots of interesting titles there. Love the Christmas books!
