Hey, look! It’s an actual Lit post on Lit Tuesday!
I have actually made some progress on this since I last posted about it. I have read Hunter, The Alchemist, Mother Ireland, and Chosen Soldiers. Reviews on those will be forthcoming, naturally.
- A book you read in school: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
A book from your childhood: The Dalemark Quartet by Diana Wynne Jones (and what a trip down memory lane it was!)
- A book published more than 100 years ago: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.
- A book published in the last year: The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman. I changed this because I couldn’t resist purchasing it when I saw it.
- A non-fiction book: The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester
- A book written by a male author: The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell
A book written by a female author: Mother Ireland by Edna O’Brien
- A book by someone who isn’t an author: Between the Bridge and the River by Craig Ferguson.
- A book that became a film: Changing this to Divergent by Veronica Roth
A book published in the 20th century: To Have and Have Not by Ernest Hemingway
- A book set in your hometown/region: Death du Jour by Cathy Reichs
A book with a number in the title: Fourth and Long by John U. Bacon
- A book with a character with your first name: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
- A book someone recommended to you: Changing this to On Writing by Stephen King because we’re going to be reading it for my book club.
- A book with over 500 pages: Ireland by Frank Delaney
A book you can finish in a day: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
- A previously banned book: Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
A book with a one-word title: Hunter by Mercedes Lackey
- A book translated from another language: Changing this to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson
- A book that will improve a specific area of your life: The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey
A memoir or journal: A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson.
A book written by someone younger than you: Chosen Soldiers by R.H. Scott A book set somewhere you’ll be visiting this year: Big Red Tequila by Rick Riordan (set in San Antonio!) An award-winning book: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime
by Mark Haddon
- A self-published book: The Cleansweep Conspiracy by Chuck Waldron. I’ll admit I’m struggling with this one. I’m maybe a quarter of the way through it.
Okay. 15 to go. I need to finish this either by the end of this year or by January 18, 2018 (since that’s when I first posted about this challenge). Time to get cracking!
