After giving it a lot of thought, I finally decided to participate in the read-a-thon. I am not sure if I will be able to read for 24 hours but I will definitely try to put in as many hours as I can.

Here’s my list :

1. Coraline by Neil Gaiman

2. Enna Burning by Shannon Hale

3. Charlotte’s Web by E.B.White

4. Forget  About It by Caprice Crane

5. The Pilot’s Wife by Anita Shreve

6. Tales Of A Drama Queen by Lee Nichols

7. Emma Vol 1 by Kaoru Mori

8. Emma Vol 2 by Kaoru Mori

9. Wake  by  Lisa McMann

10. Book Of Lies by Brad Meltzer

11.Moving Day (Allie Finkle’s Rules For Girls #1) by Meg Cabot

Updated to add :

I realised that I have to keep a few lighter books in reserve just in case I feel I can’t read any of these listed books or need a change so I got a few from the library and borrowed 2 from a friend.

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Diary Queen by Catherine Gilbert  Murdock

The New Girl ( Allie Finkle’s Rules For Girls #2) by Meg Cabot

Fairest by Gail Carson Levine

Laziness at its best

I was bitten by challenge bug a few months back when I decided to participate in as many 6 challenges. I know it was a foolish act.I should have only taken up as many challenges as I could handle. Something inside told me to go ahead. I started off well but in between I lost the urge to read  the book  for sake of enjoying it rather I started reading it to just complete the challenge. Big mistake. I just couldn’t resist such great challenges.Then after sometime when I took a break and started reading again I just read without writing reviews for the books I completed. Result being a  pending posts for nearly 35 books.

On a happier note I have completed most of  my challenges but am lazy ( read supremely lazy ) to write the reviews.So here I am looking it a huge  pile of completed books which I have got to review and I am too lazy to type it all. ( Its a tough job you know)  You must be wondering how can anybody be so lazy . But then you haven’t met me 🙂

I know I will crib and whine for some time but I will get it all done and hopefully soon .

Lesson to be learnt : Take part in challenges that are perpetual , without a deadline. In that case you have a lifetime to write the review 🙂

Told you laziness at its best 😉
