EPIC FAIL: Or, the Take Control Extension

Right.

So.

This is a little embarrassing.

Remember the Take Control challenge that ended last month?

Yeah, I've been so busy with other things I haven't been able to post an update yet.

I, um... failed.

Epicly.

I told myself when I set the challenge -as I do every time I take a reading challenge- that THIS TIME will be different, that THIS TIME I won't put too many books on, and that THIS TIME I'll actually read them on. Thus, the epic part of epic fail.

But I'm no quitter! So what I've decided is to continue with the Take Control challenge until I finish it, because all of these are books I still really want to read and I figure late is better than never. Right? And if this actually works to motivate me, well, maybe this will become 'a thing' round these here parts.

So here is the updated list:

From my bookshelves:

I did not get through any of these, unfortunately.
 


The Finnegan Zwake series by Michael Dahl
I am ashamed I haven't read these yet. Ashamed. I wasn't able to finish the series for years because they were out of print, but my dad discovered they were back in print, and completed my set two Hanukkahs ago. There are five books in total, about 150 pages a piece, and I've only read the first three. Plus, they're MIDDLE GRADE MURDER MYSTERIES! Do you have any idea how rare those are?
I told you. Ashamed.

The Undead Road: My Zombie Summer Part One by David Powers King
This is a book I bought last year. I was really excited about it, yet somehow haven't gotten to it yet. :P

(if I have time)
Star Wars: Rise of the Empire by James Luceno and John Jackson Miller

Audiobooks:

Heartless by Marissa Meyer | FINISHED!

Sands by Kevin L. Nielsen

(if I have time)
Etherwalker by Cameron Dayton

From my Kindle library:

PWNED by Shannen Crane Camp
Popular cheerleader who 'helps' the captain of the squad pick on geeks, but she's actually a closet gamer herself. I've wanted to read this for ages!

That Girl, Darcy: A Pride & Prejudice Story by James Ramos
This is a gender-swapped Pride and Prejudice retelling. This is either going to be really good or terrible and I can't wait to see which it is.

Avis Blackthorn: Is Not An Evil Wizard! by Jack Simmonds
A kids book in the vein of Harry Potter; the only good wizard from an evil wizarding family is off to wizarding school to escape his miserable home life.
