Lulu`s picks again...


I have completed the challenge! Yay! Thanks for hosting!

I signed up for the challenge last year and posted my list and while I updated when I read the books so many things changed with an international move that my list kind of went a bit haywire.

I am now back on track and have deleted my old post to make way for this new one. My list is now complete and I have all but two of the books on the list so I have no excuses not to read them. The books I have read are in Green, and the books with astixes are books I had on my shelves when this challenge began at the beggining of the year. I have 7 crossovers I think meaning 57 books to read. By my count I have 10 left to read but I could be wrong. Without further ado I present my updated list. My blog, will have the list posted up in a couple of days. Also I am not used to using blogger- and formatting on here is really hard, or is that just me?!

Favourite authors- Chose this category for obvious reasons

1. An offer you can`t refuse- Jill Mansell(Jun)
