Favorite book(s) of the challenge: I liked all of the books in this challenge (otherwise I never would have read 450 or more pages!), but my absolute favorites of the bunch are A Short Hi
Any new authors read in this challenge? Kathy Reichs, Karen Rose, Betty Smith, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie were all new authors to me.
What I learned: Big books are good readin' ;o).
Would you do this one again if it were offered next year? Definitely.
Thanks for hosting this challenge, Dana! I enjoyed choosing and reading books for it.
