Posted by Irish in Challenge12 Comments

Here is a list of all the challenges that I am currently participating in for 2013. I’ll try to keep this list updated throughout the year as I complete portions of it. To see what I thought of a book just click on the links that I add to the book titles. If you are interested in learning more about these challenges or signing up yourself just click on the Title of each that appears before the summary.

What’s in a Name 6

This has been a favorite challenge of mine over the last few years so I’m looking forward to taking part in it again. Here’s how it works: Between January 1 and December 31, 2013, read one book in each of the following categories. Overlaps are allowed between other challenges but not between categories and books can be any media source (print, audio, ebook). I’ll be replacing the examples (books in italics) with the actual titles of the books I read as I read them.

  1. A book with up or down (or equivalent) in the title: Down to You (Bad Boys, Book 1) by M. Leighton
  2. A book with something you’d find in your kitchen in the title: Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs

    Wow, you’ve committed to an awful lot of challenges! I signed up for the What’s In A Name and eBook challenges, but am trying to resist joining any more as I tend to not finish. Good luck!

    • Irish

      I have about the same amount as last year and I managed to complete all but one. Its nice when you can use one book across multiple challenges. If its an ebook, by a 2013 debut male author, contains the word up in it, and is dystopian than that’s 5 challenges I can put it towards.

      I only join the ones that I think I can do and you’d be amazed how many books can cross over into different challenges. =)

  2. Katie

    Wow! I thought I was being ambitious with my challenges but you are way more ambitious than me. Good luck with all your challenges and thanks for joining the contemporary challenge!

    • Irish

      I did a similar amount last year…for me its all about those books that can be used in multiple challenges. Much more doable that way. =)

  3. Sarah Reads Too Much

    Yay! Thanks for giving mine another shot! I’m also doing Adam’s TBR Challenge – but I had to stop there (though I always LOVE the What’s in a Name challenge). I like the Male Authors one – I hadn’t seen that yet. Good luck with them all!

    • Irish

      The Male Author one isn’t an official challenge from anywhere. Just a personal one I’m doing to change up my focus a bit. And this year I hope to do better at your challenge than last year. but 4 out of 9 wasn’t bad. =)

  4. Reading Angel

    Wow, you are doing a ton of challenges! Good luck with all that. I think I could definitely be down for the ebook challenge, but I don’t know if I’ll officially sign-up or not…
