2012 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

This challenge is to read through your to-read pile, so only books published in 2011 or earlier are allowed, no 2012 releases! 

Here's a bit of a summary of the Challenge Guidelines: 
It will run from January 1 until December 31, 2012. Each month reviews will be linked to the monthly wrap-up posts which will be hosted on the hosts' blogs. You can move up levels, but not don't start too big. :P Also, at each wrap-up post there will be a unique theme, a mini-challenge, a giveaway, and a place for you to link your reviews to from that month. Each reviews counts as an entry to the giveaway, and participating in the mini-challenge also gets you an entry into the giveaway. December will be the yearly wrap-up and all of your reviews will count as entries, and there will be 12 winners! All of these giveaways are international, but to enter them you will need to follow all of the hosts, however, if you just want to participate in the challenge you don't have to follow all of the hosts.

1-10 – A Firm Handshake
11-20 – A Friendly Hug
21-30 – A Sweet Kiss
31-40 – Love At First Sight
41-50 – Married With Children

I'm going with A Friendly Hug first...gonna start on the smaller side and work my way up if it's going well. :P

Here's my tentative list (and like the other challenges, I'll be updating it on my Challenge page):

1. Wither by Lauren DeStefano
2. Fire by Kristin Cashore
3. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
4. Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz
5. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
6. A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young
7. What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
8. Dust by Joan Frances Turner
9. Wuthering Heights by Charlotte Brontë
10. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
11. Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep
12. Bloodthirsty by Flynn Meaney
13. Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott
14. Before I Die by Jenny Downham
15. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
16. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
17. Hourglass by Myra McEntire
18. Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
19. Fury by Elizabeth Miles
 20. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Since for this one I've got so many books, I'm sure things will change, but these are some that I'd love to get to read in 2012...and I have to read Wuthering Heights for a class, so at least I know I'll get that one read. ;)

Are you participating in the TBR Pile Reading Challenge? 
Even if you aren't, what's one book you'd love to get the chance to finally read in 2012??

I think this is the last challenge I'm going to sign up for, so I'm curious, have you signed up for any challenges? Which ones? :)

Happy Reading!!!
