2013 Bucket List Book Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for a 2013 Reading Challenge!!

This challenge is being hosted by Kimberly at Kimberly's Bookshelf.

Here are the details copied from Kimberly's blog:
2013 Bucket List Book Challenge

Here are the challenge details: 

1. This challenge will begin on January 1st, 2013 and end December 31, 2013. On January 1st, 2014  I'll announce three lucky participants who will each receive a free book of their choice (from their own bucket list of course).

2. Choose a level.  The books chosen for this challenge should  include any combination of Fiction such as the Classics, Pulitzer Prize recipients, Nobel Peace recipients, or other forms of noteworthiness as well as Non-Fiction.  A good place to start is by browsing the many lists of "great books" on Good Reads or the Pulitzer website.  It's all up to's your "bucket list"!  However, the books for this event may not include books released during 2013.

Inspired:              6 books
Committed:        12 books
Tenacious:          24 books

 3. This challenge can cross-over to your other reading challenges.

 4. You do not need a blog to participate! If you are not a blogger, you can post your reviews at Goodreads, Shelfari, or LibraryThing and link them up here.

5. All formats of books are acceptable: Bound copies, e-books, and audiobooks (as long as they are unabridged).

6. I will add an additional linky to this post for your reviews beginning January 1st.

7. Create a sign-up post and link back to this post (please share a few of your "bucket list" titles as well). Sign up with Mister Linky below! Be sure to use the direct url to your sign-up post and not the url to your blog.

I am aiming for INSPIRED (read 6 books from my Bucket List). I have a huge list of 105 books on my "Fill In the Gaps: 100 Project Reading Challenge," so I will choose six books from that list.

 I will keep track of my progress below and link up my reviews (I am making a list of some of the books from my Bucket List that I might choose for the challenge):
    1. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
    2. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
    3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
    4. The Masque of The Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe
    5. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
