The Standalone Reading Challenge

Yes, yes, I know what you are thinking... Amber, you've signed up for 3 challenges already, plus you're going to be trying to read 100 books again next year. What are you thinking?

Apparently, I'm not because I'm signing up for this one too. I figure, between the four I'll be hitting a goal for something always so it will always feel like progress! That's what I'm telling myself anyway.

The Standalone Reading Challenge is hosted by IceyBooks and I Like These Books.

For this challenge, the goal is to read at least 15 standalone books in 2012. I'm not saying I'll be able to reach that many, but I'm going to do my damnedest to at least try.

Here's my very tentative list of books (you can see a really big Goodreads list here to choose from):

  1. Fracture by Megan Miranda 
  2. Reunited by Hilary Weisman Graham 
  3. The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg
  4. The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E Smith
  5. The Story of Us by Deb Caletti
  6. Touched by Cyn Balog
  7. This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers
  8. The Fine Art of Truth and Dare by Melissa Jensen
  9. Dark Companion by Marta Acosta
  10. For Darkness Shows The Stars by Diana Peterfreund
  11. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
  12. Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler
  13. Wrecked by Anna Davies
  14. Fated by Sarah Alderson
  15. Immortal City by Scott Speer
I'm not sure if I'll get to them all and this list will change depending on what ARCs I receive next year but this is my list and I'm sticking to it!
Are you signing up for any challenges?


  1. Thanks so much for signing up for the standalone challenge! I signed up for a bunch of challenges last year with a 100 book goal. It isn't that hard when you are already reading that many books!

  2. OMG..why did you publish this? I have already signed up for so many challenges for next year and now.......Just say NO...apparently I do not know how LOL

  3. Hi Amber,
    Thanks so much for including Where It Began on your 2012 Debut Author Challenge list. Every time I look at one of these lists, I find more books I want to read. There's such great YA coming out in 2012.

  4. Hey Amber, Wow, I don't think I could pull this one off. The books I read are almost always a part of a series...not on purpose it just usually ends up that way lol. Good Luck in your challenges!

Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
