Here is the list of the few challenges that I started and completed during 2009. It is not a very long list, as I hesitated joining any challenges.
- 1. Looking for Alaska by John Green
- 2. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I had hoped to read four books for Banned Book Week Challenge but I managed to read two books in one week, and the challenge only asked for us to read one. I think this was a definite success.
- 1. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
- 2. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
- 3. The Shimmer by David Morrell
- 4. Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill
- 5. From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris
- 6. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
- 7. The Awakening and The Struggle by L. J. Smith
- 8. Grace Hammer by Sara Stockbridge
- 9. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
- 10. The Fury and Dark Reunion by L. J. Smith
- 11. Nightfall by L. J. Smith
Carl’s RIP IV Challenge was the very first challenge in which I participated. I had signed up for only four books and ended up reading eleven!! I’m really looking forward to doing this one next year!
- 1. Sweet Mary by Liz Balmaseda
- 2. The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett
- 3. Across the Endless River by Thad Carhart
- 4. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
- 5. Everything Sucks by Hannah Friedman
- 6. The Missing Ink by Karen E. Olson
- 7. The Imposter’s Daughter by Laurie Sandell

The Fall Into Reading Challenge was another one in which I participated because I hoped to get some books finished that I had been meaning to read for a few months. I signed up for eight books and ended up finishing them all. Success!!
Like I said, it wasn’t a big list, but I’m happy to report that I finished every challenge I started. Now for 2010!
