Reading Challenge # 8: Wishlist Challenge



The Wishlist Challenge is a fun challenge hosted by Judith @ Leeswammes blog. The goal is to read at least twelve books that are on your wishlist. The books should not be on your shelves.


Well, my wishlist is pretty long. I am trimming it down to 21 and hope I am able to read 12 books from it. Why 21? Becuse it is an auspicious number. Who knows, I might be able to read them all!

  1. Good luck with the challenge! The Night Circus I thought was really good. I read Foucault's Pendulum years ago and I remember enjoying it.
