1 Year, 100 Books Challenge: About

In 2012, I SpasticSquirrel will be attempting to read 100 books in only a year. I will be reviewing as many of these as I can. My first year in college and many other things may stop me, but regardless I will try to complete this challenge and you can follow my reading adventures right here, or on my Goodreads account which will be a bit more up to date. This challenge was inspired by the challenge that Lonks took on SparkLife. Fictional books only, mangas (picture books and comics do not count), plays do not count (aside from Shakespeare which is considered so literaturey that people forget they are even plays, also they take a while to absorb), reading short books also don't count, all books must be roughly 200+ pages. Books assigned from school do count provided they fit in with the guidelines above (yes I did make them up based on what I thought would be fair). 

All reviews for this challenge will be titled "1 Year, 100 Books Challenge: <insert book title>". All spoilers will be warned with either large bold writing or <hide spoilers>. The layout for my 1 Year, 100 Books Challenge reviews will be as follows:
