I love a good reading challenge, so as the calendar flipped from 2016 to 2017, I eagerly looked up Anne’s Reading Challenge on Modern Mrs. Darcy to see what sort of reading and book fun I could have this year. Here is an update, with only a month and a half to go for the year.
A book you chose for the cover:
A book with a reputation for being un-put-down-able: **I think A Man Called Ove, which I started reading, then had to return, and have a hold in for again will likely be the book I list here for this category
A book set somewhere you’ve never been but would like to visit: The Year of Living Danishly: Uncovering the Secrets of the World’s Happiest Country (Helen Russell)
A book you’ve already read: To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee)– I hadn’t read this one since high school, so it was fun to go back and read it again!
A juicy memoir: Kris Jenner… and all things Kardashian (Kris Jenner)
A book about books or reading:
A book in a genre you usually avoid: ** something science fiction will probably go here
A book you don’t want to admit you’re dying to read:
A book in the backlist of a new favorite author: Saint Anything (Sarah Dessen)
A book recommended by someone with great taste: At Home in the World (Tsh Oxenreider)
A book you were excited to buy or borrow but haven’t read yet:
A book about a topic or subject you already love: Slow Kingdom Coming: Practices for Doing Justice, Loving Mercy, and Walking Humbly in the World (Kent Annan)
So that’s where I’m at for the year! I’m pretty close, but struggling to find a book about books or reading that I want to read. Any suggestions?
