Autumn Book Challenge Link Up

Yesterday, Kelsey from Keeping Up With Kelsey, posted on her blog a list of books she will be reading starting now until December 31st. She is doing a link up with Semi-Charmed Kind of Life who is sponsoring an autumn book challenge. I love to read and am always trying to find new books to read so I thought I would give it a shot. I'm not going to be all official with it but I still am keeping the topics of the books, the time frame to read them, and the points you can earn by finishing each book just to see if I have what it takes to complete it. A few of the rules included that the books had to be over 200 pages, a book can only be used for one category, and you can only have 3 out of the 13 books be books that you've read before (I have none). So I spent the day finding books that fit each category and sounded interesting to me. Below are each of the 11 categories and the list of 13 books I will have to read by December 31st. You will be able to follow my progress on a new page on my blog titled Book Challenge. I really encourage everyone who loves to read to get involved and try it!!
