NEW 101 Books in 1001 Days Challenge #2

Well, it's not quite time for my first 101 Books in 1001 Days challenge to be over. However, I couldn't ignore the new books that are screaming at me on my shelves. Therefore, I'm going to start a new challenge...TODAY. In my last update, I mentioned that I wouldn't be able to finish. That hasn't changed. I also mentioned that I would start a new challenge in June or July, but I can't wait. I just can't. I can tell you what I'll be reading first: Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Shack by William Paul Young, River Monsters: True Stories of the Ones that Didn't Get Away by Jeremy Wade, The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I will admit, I've already started Divergent, but I only just started it last night. I'll account for that in the 1001 Days countdown.

Here's the logistics:

Rules:  1. Anthologies of short stories or poetry do count, but short stories or poems on their own do not count
           2. There are no genre restrictions this time! Even Manga (Japanese comics) will be read!
           3. No page counts...wanna know why? Most of the books I read are over 300 pages. If there are a couple under 200, I'm not going to worry about it...especially when a lot of the books on my list are over 400 pages.
