The rules are the same as last year! (click here for more details)
You have a year to read 100 books. Add replies with what you have read and possibly a little description to tell your fellow Nerdfighters a little bit about them.
Good luck and get reading!

Yes! I will do this!
And this year I have read all 3 hunger games books and I'm currently reading Modelland (do not recommend. it's by Tyra Banks. she should not be writing novels.) and I have Sarah Dessen's new book and The Help already queued up. How many books have people already read? I need to catch up!!
okay so, I'm up to 3 or 4, I suppose. I have a lot of reading to do!!
I've only read twelve books this year, which feels weird because it FEELS like I've read more. I've only read TFIOS more than once (obviously doesn't count) so I should have read more by now.
It's kind of sad when you think about it. I'll be the worlds slowest reading librarian out there. I love to read, I'm just super slow.
Wow I feel so late to the party with this especially it being almost the half way point in the year and all that! I've read quite a lot this year - not quite sure how many as I've not actually counted - probably at least 20 - more if you count Manga and comic books.
I've just read Paper Towns which was wonderful and have invested in Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines as future reads. In addition I have just finished Kresley Cole's Wicked Deeds on A Winter's Night which was paranormal romantic fluff which I found very enjoyable. Next I'm going to go for The Fault in Our Stars and Jane Eyre possibly in tandem.
I'll keep an eye on all your progress and report on mine every so often.
I started really slowly and its May now so I really have to get going (goodbye summer free-time) ANy way I've already read The Acorn People (meh), The Outsiders (Oh my gosh so amazing), TFIOS (Beautiful), An Abundance of Katherines (HILARIOUS), Paper Towns (my new favourite), Looking For Alaska (Makes you feel ALL THE THINGS), and Dead Beautiful (Such a nice teenage mystical romance). I'm really looking forward to reading (in no particular order)
I'm definitely in! I've already read 12 books this year :)
71. Until I Die by Amy Plum - Interesting paranormal YA book set in Paris.
72. Vixen by Jillian Larkin - A book about flappers in the 20s in Chicago!

13. Paper Towns by John Green
I liked it a lot, but it felt very similar to Looking for Alaska.
So, this is my first book update;
1. TFioS- brilliant book for anyone who hasn't read it but, I am sure you have
2. The Zombie Survial Guide- Very funny and I know how to protect myself
3. 1984- I had trouble in the middle, i got quite bored. However, the end is so brilliantand confusing. A must read
4- 10. Harry Potter series- I suppose you call it a re-read but, I haven't read them for about 2 years or so and it was in preparetion for pottermore (RainElm8997)
11. David Tennant- biography someone wrote was interesting but, I question the truth behind it.
