Fear Itself Challenge

Fear Itself Challenge hosted by Donna of Lit Bites. You need to choose three books that are in a category that you wouldn't normally read, thus the fearless challenge. It runs from July 1st to December 31st, 2009 and the books MUST be reviewed! Well, I'm going to read:

1. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens (I want to like Dickens, but I've had a hard time getting into his books so here we go. I like the movies, so I'm hoping this is one I can get through.)

2. An essay or two by Ralph Waldo Emerson (I've shied away from him since high school, though I don't know why, so time to face my fear!).

3. One book or at least quite a few entries of poetry. I find poetry a bit too difficult since it makes you really ponder and think and delve...I'm not quite sure what yet, maybe some Keats, Shakespeare's sonnets, etc!


  1. Woohoo! Thanks for the pimp and for joining in! It's definitely an eye opener!

  2. Good luck with this challenge!
    I want to join it, but I don' know what I would read. Romance novels, perhaps?

  3. I like this challenge. I like to be challenged to go outside of my comfort zone. I like the Halloween look on your blog too!

    p.s. I have another award for you!


Thanks for reading my posts and for letting me know what you think!
