MizB of The Book Zone has come up with a new challenge. Oh goody!
The idea behind the Raved-About Read Challenge is to read the books that all the other book bloggers are raving about and saying that everyone should read. I tend to put these books on my wish-list where they sit...and sit...and sit. So I'm hoping the Raved-About Reads Challenge will get me to read a few of them!
The challenge is perpetual, so, of course, this list will grow. But, for now, I'm going to list 10 that I want to read as soon as possible. Several of these are kind of old, but I haven't gotten to them yet. Hence joining the challenge...
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
- Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
Moloka’i by Alan Brennert The Road by Cormac McCarthy
- Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
- A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
Edited to add:
Back to my regularly scheduled list...
If you've read any of these, did you like them? Hate them? Tell me about your experience.
