Mini Challenge

For my mini challenge I would like to know...

1. Which book you are most excited to read in the coming year? It can be already released or coming soon.
Possession by Kat Richardson and The Visitor by Amanda Stevens
2. Which book would you re-read if you had the time and weren't so busy reading ALL of the other good thing?
The entire Harry Potter series 
3. and lastly, If you could meet any fictional character who would it be and why?
Jo March from Little Women or Atticus Fitch from 
To Kill A Mockingbird 


Better Read than Dead Blogging Mini-Challenge Time!!!

You're in a bookstore and you've just purchased 5 books you've been dying to read, when the apocalypse hits. (Zombie, Demons, Vampires, Dean Winchester vs. Sam Winchester (yes, I'm watching Supernatural reruns) I don't care what apocalypse). You've got one chance at survival, what 2 books do you take and what 3 other items do you take? 

First, I am totally hanging with Sam and Dean for the apocalypse!  OK, I am assuming the items have to be taken from the store, so I am going to search the coffee shop (since I am at B&N) and look for a knife. I am also going to get a coffee, since hey it might be a while before I taste another caramel macchiato. For my books I am grabbing a book on herbs and plant life and How to Survive an Apocalypse. Hey, don't look at me like that...i totally plan to hold up near the local library and will snag a few books for reading when I can, but first I need to survive! 


Wrap Up

Overall I accomplished my goals and read 3 books, but as you can
see I added a book! I also visited some blogs, and participated in a few  fun challenges. Thanks to all the hosts!
How did you do?

I'm with you on wanting to reread the entire HP series. I haven't done that since before Deathly Hallows comes out and I really want to. I've never thought about Atticus Finch before. Great answer! Good luck with your reading goals!

OMG Kim I'm glad I'm finally able to comment on Disqus, it's been weeks since I've been able to comment on any blogs that uses the Disqus commenting system.

Great challenge answers, my answers would have been very different if it wasn't an apocalypse LOL
