21 Book Challenge for 2011

Last year I tried to read 20 books in 2010. I think I got to maybe 7. Being a stay home mom, doesn't exactly give me a whole lot of time to sit and read. Between feeding, changing diapers, constantly picking up toys, cleaning and laundry, I'm pretty busy. So I decided that I am going to make time for myself everyday doing something I like. Of course I am limited considering I constantly have a house full of kids, so reading is the easiest and obvious choice. I have compiled a list of books that I would like to read this year. I am starting with Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin. Here is the list I would also like to read this year:

  • Something Borrowed - Emily Griffin
  • Something Blue- Emily Griffin
  • One Day- David Nicholls
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn- Betty Smith
  • The Glass Castle - Jeanette Walls
  • The Boy in The Stripped Pajamas
  • Revolutionary Road
  • Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer
  • The Life of Pi by Yann Martel
  • Heart Sick- Chelsea Cain
  • Baby Proof- Emily Griffin
  • Love , Lust & Faking it- Jenny McCarthy
  • Heart of The Matter - Emily Griffin
As you see there are on 13 books on the list so if you have any suggestions for me please let me know. Also I would love it if anyone wanted to join me in this challenge. You can read whatever books you like because obviously everyone has different taste in books. Just grab my tag and write out your list, then let me know! Happy reading! :)
