I've challenged myself to read at least 100 books. I can't get the goodreads thing to work here, though. As of 07/10/12 I've read 50 and I'm nearly finished with a couple others.

I've also joined the Witches & Witchcraft Reading challenge, hosted by Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf. I've chosen the level Maiden, but I'm hoping to read more than 10.

The rules for Melissa's challenge are to read books that have a Witch as a main character, or major elements of Witchcraft. They can be fiction or non-fiction, and the challenge runs from January 1, 2012- December 31, 2012 with signups lasting through December 15, 2012. The levels are:

Initiate:  Read 1 - 5 Witchy Books
Maiden:  Read 6 - 10 Witchy Books
Mother:  Read 11 - 15 Witchy Books
Crone:  Read 16 - 20 Witchy Books

  1. Welcome to the Witches & Witchcraft Challenge:)

  2. Hi there! Go Witches! In solidarity, I'd love to give you a copy of my latest novel, a YA paranormal romance called AUDREY'S GUIDE TO WITCHCRAFT. I noticed you joined Melissa's Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge, so I figured you might have a soft spot for magic!

    A short synopsis: Falling in Love, baking a magical cake, fighting an evil necromancer—it’s all in a day’s work for Audrey Oliver, seventeen-year-old witch-in-training. When her mother goes missing and her twenty-one-year-old witchy cousin shows up out of the blue, Audrey knows something’s gone horribly, dangerously wrong. Now it’s up to her to get her own magical powers up to speed before everyone she loves is destroyed by the sorcerer intricately connected to her mother’s secret past.
