October's Reading Challenge: Skinny Books

Don't judge a book by its cover, but how about by its size? My Goodreads reading challenge says I'm eleven books behind schedule, and this bothers me.

I perused my TBR pile and cobbled together a nice mix of skinny books that should be quick reads to get me back on track. So, my October challenge is to finish reading my current ebook: 1.) Double Clutch: A Brenna Blixen Novel by Liz Reinhardt, then start on these thin mints:

A 4.75" Short Stack

2.) The Giver by Lois Lowry - Middle Grade (179 pages)
3.)  Liar and Spy by Rebecca Stead - Middle Grade (180 pages)
4.) The 48-Hour Hook Up by Sarah Ballance - Contemporary Romance (188 pages)
5.) Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl - Childrens (81 pages)
6.) The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams - Childrens (44 pages)
7.) Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson - Middle Grade (163 pages)
8.) Trouble in Paradise by Carolyn Brown - Romance (182 pages)
9.) Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli - Middle Grade (184 pages)
10.) Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson - Young Adult (198 pages)
11.) My Mortal Enemy by Willa Cather - Classic (85 pages)

Eleven books to read for the remainder of October! Can I do it?

It's a pile of good stuff to read, so...definitely worth the try ;)

I had such high hopes for this reading challenge...but I didn't manage it. I read six out of the eleven: The Giver, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Maniac Magee, the 48-hour Hook Up, The Velveteen Rabbit, and Double Clutch. I'm currently reading Liar & Spy.
