Mount TBR Challenge Checkpoint #3

It's time for the third checkpoint in the 2012 Mount TBR Reading Challenge! At 3/4 of the way through the year, things are not looking good for me making it up Mount Ararat.

Here are the books I've read so far (my goal is 40):
  1. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
  2. The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds by Sally Dubats
  3. The Hollow Tree by Janet Lunn
  4. Stolen by Kelley Armstrong
  5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  6. John Dies at the End by David Wong
  7. The Twits by Roald Dahl
  8. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
  9. Against the Fall of Night by Arthur C. Clarke
  10. Charmed Season 9 Volume 1 by Paul Ruditis
  11. The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More by Roald Dahl
  12. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson
  13. Jesus on Mars by Philip José Farmer
  14. The Mummy by Anne Rice
  15. The Visitor (Animorphs #2) by K.A. Applegate
  16. The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
  17. The Wish List by Eoin Colfer
  18. The Encounter (Animorphs #3) by K.A. Applegate
  19. Sabrina the Teenage Witch #14: Spying Eyes by Nancy Holder
  20. You are Microscopic (Choose Your Own Adventure #130) by Edward Packard
  21. Claws by Will Weaver
  22. The Message (Animorphs #4) by K.A. Applegate
  23. Carrie by Stephen King
  24. The Witching Hour by Anne Rice (in progress)
  25. The Complete Works of Lewis Carroll (in progress)
I should be at 30 right now. When I finish the two that I'm reading (they're both really big, but I'm getting there), I'll be at 25. 15 more to go! I'm not so far behind that it's hopeless. It'll be tough, though. Wish me luck!

To give you just a quick update on my other 2012 challenges, I'm on my 7th book for The Anne Rice Challenge. Definitely nowhere near my original goal, but that was just unrealistic! For the Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge, I'm at 56 out of 78, which is only 1 book behind, so things are looking good there (especially with the read-a-thon coming up). Considering the size of some of the books I've been reading, I'm very pleased with my results so far. Speaking of which, the two big books I'm currently reading are both in my top 3 longest books on my TBR pile. I'm not sure I'll get to Shogun this year. I'm also still doing well in the A-Z Reading Challenge, for which I have 5 books left to read.
