2013 Catch Up Reading Challenge

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

This challenge is being hosted by Tammy at Books, Bones & Buffy!

Here are the details copied from Tammy's blog:
2013 Catch Up Reading Challenge

So I’m starting my own reading challenge. I’m doing it for me, but I’m also inviting other bloggers to join me. My goal is simple: “Catch Up” on some books I’ve been dying to read, but because of my blog commitments, I just haven’t had time. Now, my personal list does not just include books from 2012. I’m mostly interested in catching up with complete series of books that I’ve recently discovered, and I’m giving myself the entire year of 2013 to do it! Sounds easy, right?

I’ve made a button so it’s official, and if you’d like to join you can enter your website in the Linky below. You can also put the button on your blog if you’d like! Here are the rules for the Challenge:

1. Select the books you’d like to “catch up” on during the year. I’ve decided not to put a minimum or even a limit on this number. It’s really up to you. My list has (8) books on it.

2. Grab the challenge button and post it on your sidebar.

3. Do a Catch Up Challenge blog post listing the books you’d love to finally get to read in 2013. Include the button in your post and link back here, if you don’t mind:)

4. Every time you read one of your catch up books, write a review and let me know about it in the comment section of this post. I’d love to see what you’re reading! You can easily find this post again by clicking the Catch Up Challenge button on my sidebar. It will take you right back here.

5. PRIZES!!  For every ten bloggers or reviewers that sign up, I will have a giveaway. And for each of your challenge book reviews, you’ll get an entry into the giveaway. Giveaways will be spread out during the year to give you time to read and review your books.

6. You don’t have to have a blog to participate! You can post reviews on Goodreads too, just let me know in the comments where to find your review.
If you would like to join me in the challenge, click on the challenge badge at the beginning of this post.

I have so many books on my TBR list that it is hard to know where to start! I have a bunch of series that I want to read, so here are some books that are "first in a series" that I want to start
as well as sequels that I want to get caught up on! I am aiming to get "caught up" on 10 books in a series.
