my book challenge or how the hell fast do i really read


The Premise: In the spirit of her 2009 Readolution 2, Kris decided to finish the 16 books she had before buying any more new releases or opening the packages of eagerly awaiteds that had arrived in the mail.

“Help us, Kris, help us. Save us from our brown, paper prisons.”

The Motivational Chant:

Can Kris do it? Yes, she can!

The Beginning: Started reading 7pm Perth time on Wed 7 Jan.

The Middle (books finished):
Red by Jordan Summers
Ecstasy by Jacquelyn Frank (DNF @ p. 242)
Skulduggery Pleasant-Playing with Fire by Derek Landy
Mouth to Mouth by Erin McCarthy
You Don’t Know Jack by Erin McCarthy
Bitten by Sean Michael
The Land of Night by Kirby Crow
Murder Game by Christine Feehan
Lady of Light & Shadows by C L Wilson
Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliassotti
Dragon Actually by G A Aiken
Artemis Fowl & the Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer
One Silent Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Daylight by Elizabeth Knox (dipped)
The Tales of Beetle the Bard by J K Rowling
Brisingr by Christopher Paolini (friggin awkward to read in trade paperback – now have RSI)

The End: Finished reading 11.30pm Perth time on Wed 14 Jan. THANK. FUCK.

The Good Fairy’s Moral of the Story: You finish what you start; perseverance pays off…

*Kris interrupts rolling eyes* What. Ever.

Kris’ Moral of the Story: Never, ever, ever agree to do something so stupid again unless there is a seriously big pay off at the end, which comes at someone else’s angst and expense.

The Recovery:

Some members of Kris’ medical team. These nurses are responsible for sponge baths, fetching medicinal beverages, reading aloud from eagerly awaiteds, etc.
