Reading Challenge Update- almost halfway there!

I just realized that I've been kind of remiss in monitoring my progress on my reading challenges for this year. It's so weird to think that 2011 coming up on half over, and yet the fact stands! Reviews completed are linked, otherwise, reviews are coming soon!

Hosted by Dark Faerie Tales, the rules of engagement for this one are to read 24 new paranormal romance novels, and 12 paranormal romance novels of your choice in 2011. 
Progress so far:
1. Archangel's Consort by Nalini Singh- new book
2. Gideon by Jaquelyn Frank- old book
3. Elijah by Jacquelyn Frank- old book
4. The Vampire Voss by Colleen Gleason- new book
5. This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost- new book
6. Master of Smoke by Angela Knight- old book
7. An Unwanted Hunger by Ciana Stone- old book
8. Dreams of a Dark Warrior by Kresley Cole- new book
9. Eternal Flame by Cynthia Eden- old book
10. On the Edge by Ilona Andrews- old book
11. Motor City Witch by Cindy Spencer Pape- old book
12. Eternal Rider by Larissa Ione- new book
Totals so far: 5/24 new books read, 7/12 old books read

IAD Reading Challenge: follow along to read the whole series in a year!
Progress so far:
January 21: "The Warlord Wants Forever"
I have been reading along with this series but am way behind in writing reviews, sadly.  I'll get caught up at some point!

Show Me the Free Challenge: read 12 ebooks that I legally obtained and that were free to me.
Progress so far:
1. An Unwanted Hunger by Ciana Stone

Also, I hang my head in shame, I did not meet my reviewing goal for this month.  Better luck next month!

How is everyone else doing on their 2011 challenges?
