2013 Reading Challenges! And Books I Want To Read

I love books and reading. It's like one of my favourite hobby. Okay, maybe it's ranked more like 5th but it's quite high up there. Reading is one of my new year's resolution. Read. Read. And read some more. So, to help myself and be more motivated, as I have mentioned in my resolutions, I am participating to reading challenges. I have decided on 2 challenges. Since I have decided, here's the post ^_^

The Wishlist Challenge is hosted by Cynni @ Uniflame. Information about it is here. Basically, you read 12 books from your current wishlist, one in each month. This one looks feasible since I just got back into reading regularly. It also means I can get some books read from my ridiculously long to-read list that can probably fit 2 streets.

My List: 

1. Rock and a Hard Place by Angie Stanton 
2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
3. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
4. The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long
5. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
6. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
7. The One That I Want by Jennifer Echols
8. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick 
9. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
10. Entwined by Heather Dixon
11. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
12. Ex-mas by Kate Brian

The YA Contemporary Challenge is hosted by Katie @ Katie's Book Blog. Information about it is here. I have decided to go with Level 2 which is 10+ contemporary YA novels.

My List:

1. Also Known As by Robin Benway
2. Just One Day by Gayle Forman
3. The Reece Malcolm List by Amy Spalding
4. The Art of Wishing by Lindsay Ribar
5. How My Summer Went Up In Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
6. This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
7. The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ocklet
8. Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg
9. When You Were Here by Daisy Whitney
10. The Lucy Variations by Sarah Zarr
11. All I Need by Susane Colasanti
12. Burning by Elana K. Arnold
13. Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

I have also decided that I need to read Sarah Dessen's books. Back in the days when I was really into YA romance, I loved Sarah Dessen. I remember I even gave Beth Lock and Key for her birthday. Cathy Cassidy and Sarah Dessen is what originally got me into all the heart-throbs, heart-breaks and such that comes with YA contemporary romances. 2012 YA contemporary romance novels and some fantasy ones had really caught my eye. So I most definitely will be reading some of those on my to-read list. 

2013 has a lot of science fiction and fantasy new releases. Yes, YA science fiction and/or fantasy is the best genre ever. It has been and will remain my favourite genre. Here are some that caught my eye and I probably will read this year. (Yes, we can doing this eye-candy style!)
