Even More Challenges in 2008 - TBR Challenge



So I'm on the last two of the challenges I have accepted for 2008.

The next Challenge I have accepted is sponsored on the TBR Challenge website and is the strictest among all since I'm not allowed to modify my selection after I have posted my choices. Talk about accountability!!!
That is the most intimidating factor of the challenge, it's also the best feature.

Here are the rules:

** Pick 12 books - one for each month of 2008 - that you've been wanting to read (that have been on your "To Be Read" list) for 6 months or longer, but haven't gotten around to.
** OPTIONAL: Create a list of 12 "Alternates" (books you could substitute for your challenge books, given that a particular one doesn't grab you at the time)
** Then, starting January 1, 2008, read one of these books from your list each month, ending December 31, 2008. :o)

With the rules in place, here is my list:

1) Seventh Heaven by Catherine Anderson
2) The Wolf and the Dove - Kathleen Woodiwiss
3) Rules of Engagement - Christina Dodd
4) The Princess and the Pea - Victoria Alexander
5) Lions and Laces - Meagan McKinney
6) The Lightkeeper - Susan Wiggs
7) A Valentine Wedding - Jane Feather
8) After the Kiss - Karen Ranney
9) Family Man - Jayne Ann Krentz
10) Lady Be Good - Susan Elizabeth Philips
11) A Useful Affair - Stella Cameron
12) Unsung Hero - Suzanne Brockmann

Alternatives:
1) The Immortal Highlander - Karen Marie Moning
2) Scandalous Lovers - Robin Schone
3) An Unmistakable Rouge - Annette Blair
4) One Of These Nights - Justine Davis
5) Out of Control - Shannon McKenna
6) Devil You Know - Liz Carlyle
7) The Irish Devil - Diane Whiteside
8) The Queen of Heart - Patricia Potter
9) The Secret Life of Bryan - Lori Foster
10) The Forever Kiss - Angela Knight
11) A Little Mischief - Amelia Grey
12) Once a Mistress - Debra Mullins

I was not sure about the lists since there are a few in there that have been in my TBR pile for years, but I guess that is the idea behind the challenge, move the books from my TBR pile to my Read pile!

I'll be editing this post over the year to reflect the reviews posted for the books selected.
