Weekly Ebook Challenge Update

This year, I decided that I needed to challenge myself a little more. 
So I'm going to read as many ebooks as I possibly can, with a few print books in between.
The first ebook I read this year was Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost. 
It was amazingly awesome and seriously kick-ass!!!
Read From: Jan 1st to Jan 7th. 
Book Blurb (From Goodreads):
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother’s life. Then she’s captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.
In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She’s amazed she doesn’t end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn’t have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side... and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

The next ebook that I started was 
A Shimmer of Angels by Lisa M. Basso.
Read From: Jan 8th to Jan 
Book Blurb (From Goodreads):
 Sixteen-year-old Rayna sees angels, and has the medication and weekly therapy sessions to prove it. Now, in remission, Rayna starts fresh at a new school, lands a new job, and desperately tries for normalcy. She ignores signs that she may be slipping into the world she has tried so hard to climb out of. But these days, it’s more than just hallucinations that keep Rayna up at night. Students are dying, and she may be the only one who can stop it. Can she keep her job, her sanity, and her friends from dying at the hands of angels she can't admit to seeing?

Now I haven't decided the next ebook to read, but the first print book I read this year will be Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I've been meaning to read this one for the longest time and now I'm going to finally meet Patch and see what he's all about. 
Read From: Jan 13th to Jan 

Book Blurb (From Goodreads):



Romance was not part of Nora Grey's the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.
For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

After Hush Hush, I'm going to finally read the last book in 
The Hunger Games Trilogy. 
I have waited quite awhile to finish this series. 
I really don't want it to end, but I know it has to. 

Book Blurb (From Goodreads):

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

So those are the next couple of books I'll be reading. 
I'm going to do an update post every Sunday 
and try to read 2 ebooks, followed by 2 print books every month until the end of 2013.

Have you set up a reading challenge for yourself?
I'd love to hear about them!
