Sexxy Book Challenge Catacombs

This Sexxy Book Challenge Catacomb is a list of my yearly Boals and what books I read to reach them.

2012 Boal did not go well for me.  I had set a modest 34 boal for my Reading Challenge, but unfortunately was only able to read 26.  Bigh (book-sigh).

Original Post:
2012 Boal is on!  I want to read 34 books to get my total "Read Books" to 250.  The ambitious bookie in me wants to so go for 84, and I still may, but it's going to be a busy year so I don't think I'll be able to make that boal.  So here are the books of honour to be read.  These are in no particular order, nor is this list set in stone.  Some on this list may get replaced by another book and I will def be adding more to it if I feel like I can surpass my 34 boal.

  1. The Angel's Game
  2. The Revenge of the Baby-Sat 
  3. Dinosaurs Love Underpants
  4. The Walking Dead: Too Far Gone (#13)
  5. The Walking Dead: No Way Out (#14)
  6. The Walking Dead: We Find Ourselves (#15)
  7. The Stranger 
  8. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
  9. Boneshaker
  10. Bag of Bones
  11. Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief (#1)
  12. Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters (#2)
  13. Percy Jackson: The Titan's Curse (#3)
  14. Pillars of Earth: TPOE.1
  15. A Game of Thrones: A Song of Fire & Ice (#1)
  16. The Graveyard Book
  17. Lady Chatterley's Lover
  18. Lockdown: Escape From Furnace (#1)
  19. Solitary: Escape From Furnace (#2)
  20. The Walking Dead: A Larger World (#16)
  21. Fall of Giants

  24. Close to Shore: The Terrifying Shark Attacks of 1916
  25. Gone Girl

Once a book is completed it will be placed in the order it was read and have a strikethrough. I'm very excited by this challenge and even more excited about the amazing book adventures I'll be having!

Well the 2011 Reading Season has come to an end.  I am proud to say I made my boal!  50 books read for a grand total of having read 216 books overall.  I will be announcing my 2012 Boal very soon, so stay booked!  I will also be posting my overall review J.Sexx Quickie Reviews on all the books I read in 2011.  Lots to come this year and I'm quite excited to get started!  Congrats to all those on their 2011 Boals whether you completed them or not, it was always about getting some damn good reads in, so that in itself is success.  GL to all those that will be starting 2012 Book Challenges.  Stay Booked!

I had set a boal for the 2011 Book Reading Season and that is to have read 200 books by Jan. 2012. I am currently at 202, but as I stated on my Facebook Book Club Page (join by following the link from my home page) I have upped that goal to 215.  So here are the books of honour to be read. The strikethrough books are the ones I've read in the order I've read them.  The others are what I plan on reading, but those will change as my tastes of the moment will.
