Challenges, Challenges

I swore to myself I would stop with the challenges...but I can't! D: So here's a tinnie-tiny list of the reading challenges I'll be participating in this year :)

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Book Challenge 2012

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read the original book featuring each of the main characters and post a review of each between 1st January 2012 and the 31st December."
