Challenges

Oh my goodness! You can not imagine my relief that this challenge is going to be repeated in 2015 - thank you Bookish (Go on over to Bookish and check out the rules and enter)! I have so many books in my TBR pile and I  failed miserably last year. So here I am to try it again!

I am going with First Kiss 21-30 books from my TBR pile, but it would be great if I could get more read!

Here are some of the books I hope to read
Books 2 & 3 of the Anomaly series
The Ryn by Serena Chase
The Remedy by Serena Chase
The Seahorse Legacy by Serena Chase
Not In The Script by Amy Finnegan
Cindy Roland Anderson books
2 of Jen Turano's Books (the 2 I haven't read)
Kasie West books
Circle of Spies by Roseanna M. White
Tamera Alexander books
Janice Thomas books
So many more!
Any books I have but haven't read yet and the ones on my Library list and TBR Pile on Goodreads that I've been meaning to read for a while but haven't (it would take forever to put all those on here)!

Who else has a crazy TBR pile? Come on, I don't want to be alone with this problem!

Around the World 2015 Reading Challenge by All About Books
I love traveling the world through books, and I thought that this Around The World Challenge by It's All About Books would be a perfect way to keep track of the places I travel to through books this year. I created a map (can be found towards the bottom of my side bar on the left) on Google Maps where I'll put dots at each destination. 

Books and Places Read
1. Keys of the Watchmen by Kathleen C. Perrin (France)


 I love how this challenge is just for fun and has so many fun mini challenges!
Here is a link to the map! (I'll also use this map for the road trip challenge)
