I signed up late for the Southern Reading Challenge, hosted by The Introverted Reader, but it is one that definitely has captured my fancy. Click the picture or the link for more details or to sign up.
This is my first year participating, so I am starting slow, at the two-book, "pull up a seat and stay a while" level.
BOOKS, REVIEWS, & POSSIBILITIES
UPDATE: I only finished one book for this challenge and didn't even review that one. I read The General's Daughter by Nelson DeMille, which was set on a military base in Georgia. It was a book that made the most of its Southern setting, so was a good choice for the challenge. But I wish I had read more qualifying books.
My other possibilities were these:
Glow by Jessica Maria Tuccelli
Swan Peak by James Lee Burke (which I read but realized didn't count because, unlike his other Dave Robicheaux books, this one was set in Montana!)
Lie Down in Darkness by William Styron
Have fun with the challenge!ReplyDelete
I hope that you enjoy taking part in this challenge, all of your book choices look great, although the only author I know of is James Lee Burke, so I would probably pick 'Swan Peak' as my favourite and the one I have added to my reading list.
I'm trying to take it easy with the challenges this year, since I have a poor record with them. Otherwise I'd probably be signing up for this one! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
