This year, I have participated in a few reading challenges and I am ashamed to say I have completed only one or two challenges so far. As much as I love reading challenges, I am afraid that next year will be a year for my TBR pile. I need to get through those before they get way out of hand (which I am sure many of you would be able to relate to, right? Anyway, I'm giving up on the remaining challenges I signed up for this year since there is no way I am able to complete them at this point... sigh.) Still, that doesn’t mean that I won’t be participating in any reading challenges so here’s a few which I am participating in 2011:

2011 YA Reading Challenge (January 1st – December 31st)
I chose Option “Mini YA” where I need to read 12 YA novels. There is no need for a list so my choice will depend on my mood then.

2011 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge (January 1st – December 31st)
I chose “Level 1” where I need to read 5 books from the 2010 Book Blogger Recommendation List. My choice is as follows:

1) Juliet by Anne Fortier
2) Room by Emma Donaghue
3) Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
4) Personal Demons - Lisa Desrochers
5) Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

The TBR Dare (January 1st – April 1st)
Of course I wouldn't want to turn this down, after all this is another good excuse for me to clear those piles away. For this, I pledge to read as many books from my TBR pile till the last day of the dare.

What about you? Which 2011 reading challenges are you participating?

    I'm REALLY tempted by that TBR dare as I need to do something about my shelves, but since I'm trying to go stress-free next year I'm just not gonna. ;) Hope you have fun--the Book Blogger Rec is another one I could easily pull books off the shelf to do.

    Good luck with your challenges Melody. I'm getting through my own books this year. I think the only thing I'm going to do is read a long for War and Peace.

    Don't feel bad Melody. You still participated and had fun so that's what counts!

    Still I totally understand. Next year I'm planning on just sticking with my books. I've got to make room on the shelves for more books :)

    Have fun with those that you are doing! I don't think you'll have a problem at all with that YA challenge. You always find such great books.
