I'm excited for you're upcoming re-reading year! These are some of my very favorites! I re-read the Anne of Green Gables series this last year and I fell in love with it all over again. I'm thinking I'll be re-reading the Lord of the Rings this next year because it's been a couple years and I'm just craving a re-read!

I have tried to read the Tolkien ones for a hundred times now! It's not that they are bad, they're great but I don't like when books have a lot of description, I am constantly getting distracted! Think I am gonna sign up for the challenge too!
Gonna follow your blog, liked it a lot!
Check out mine, if you can, I am starting it: artdvivre.blogspot.com
