Instead of joining Once Upon a Time II, I decided to join the Spring Reading Challenge, as I can set my number and pick books off my TBR list! The Spring Reading Challenge was designed to pick books for March, April, and May. But I decided to use the dates for Once Upon a Time II and go from the First Day of Spring (March 20th) to Midsummer Night’s Eve (June 19th) the day before the First Day of Summer.
These are on my TBR Shortlist as they just caught my interest:
- The Shakespeare Secret by J.L. Carrell (finished April 4, 2008)
- Runemarks by Joanne Harris
- Pay it Forward by Catherine Ryan (finished May 9 ,2008)
These ones are some “classics” that are on my TBR Classic List.
- The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells (quit April 28, 2008)
- Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
I’ve owned these ones for some time and still not finished them (started several times):
- She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb
- Watership Down by Richard Adams
These are some “easy reads” that were recommended by some girl-friends from camp:
- Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (finished April 19, 2008)
- New Moon by Stephenie Meyer (finished May 11, 2008)
- Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer (finished May 14, 2008)
So that’s 10 books that I can read in any order or not at all, but I hope to finish a few. The last three are if I get too “bogged down” by some serious stuff. I’ve already started The Shakespeare Secret and it reminds me very much of The Da Vinci Code, which I enjoyed very much. I might finish up the reading with A Midsummer Night’s Dream just to bring the ideas full-circle!
