I have to read 50 books this year

I signed up for 50bookchallenge this year.
I love reading books, but last year I only read 34 books.
I have kept a list of my book-readings since 2003, and 2005 was my best year - I read 58 books that year.

This year so far:

LJ Smith:The Vampire Diaries - the Awakening (Thanks to blondesimone )
J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets - just for fun..
Lemony Snicket: The Carnivorous Carnival (juju_bean helped me out here)

It`s a slow start, but I am determined to read the 50 books this year.
(And I am not counting fan-fic)
Suggessions are welcome - I mostly read books translated into danish, but if you have a great title, I can read it in english if I can get it from the library.

On my list I have:
Christopher Paolini: Eragon
Jools Oliver: minus nine to one
Eion Colfer: Artemis Fowl - The Opal Deception

I have to recommend A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. It's the first novel in his "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, and it's excellent.

If you haven't read it I really recommend "froken Smillas fornemmelse for sno" by Peter Höeg. That is the Norwegian title, I can't remember the original title, but it is Danish so you should be able to find it. I loved it and have read it several times :)

The danish title is "Frøken Smillas fornemmelse for sne" and I read it several years ago;)
Thanks for recommending a book for me..

Oh, I will - But I have to watch the movie, otherwise I will not be able to appreciate your
"Drunken Eragon Parody" ;)

Since you seem to like Lemony Snicket and Artemis Fowl, I would suggest Half Moon Investigations by Eion Colfer. It came out last year, and I really liked it. Colfer is probably going to make it into a series, too.
