Crikey!  That's actually quite scary lol!   Of course, some may change, and I may only manage 12 books but I'll let you know how I get on by crossing books off the list once I've read them:)

Addtional books read:

Heart Burn by Anne Cassidy
Wuthering Hearts by Kay Woodward
OTOLI by Bryony Allen
Chasing Daisy by Paige Toon
Velvet by Mary Hooper
Naked by Kevin Brooks
Divine Freaks by Fiona Dunbar
Stealing Phoenix by Joss Stirling

Read so far...18

UPDATE: So Gah! I didn't reach 50:( But I did manage 12 so I completed the challenge (yay!) Plus I will be signing up for it again in 2012 so hopefully I'll manage the 50 then.

You've got some great reads on this list, and some that I haven't read but want to. I'm going to be doing this one too but I haven't got my whole list yet - I have a feeling I'll be copying some of your choices!

*blinking Nora!* LOL What a list! I am very impressed. I also think you should edit this and take some credit for the challenge because I wouldn't have ever started even thinking about it if it wasn't for you. Very pleased to see Angel on that list. You'll love it.
You are so going to hit 50 books!!!

Wow, you're aiming high! Good luck, I hope you reach that total! *Fingers crossed*.

I've joined too. I'm going to aim for the 12 books, but may go that bit further. We'll see :)
