Rules and Sign-up on the Challenge Blog.

I don't yet know what I'll be reading, and since the rules allow me to create my list as I go, I'm going to do that. But here are a few of the books I'm currently considering:
  • Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood (Giller Prize 1996)

  • Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner (Pulitzer Prize in Fiction 1972)

  • Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson (National Book Award Finalist in Young People's Literature 2009)

  • A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban (Beehive Award Nominee 2010)

  • The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart (Printz Honor Book 2009)

  • Finding Nouf by ZoĆ« Ferraris (Alex Award 2009)

  • Life of Pi by Yann Martel (Man Booker Prize 2002)

  • A Midwife's Tale: The Life of Martha Ballard, Based on Her Diary, 1785-1812 by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich (Pulitzer Prize in History 1991)

  • Peace Like a River by Leif Enger (Alex Award 2002)

  • Wild Swans by Jung Chang (British Book Award 1994)


  1. I love this challenge. You have some great books picked out!

  2. I'm trying to be strong and just stick to my 3 challenges for the year, but some of these books are in my TBR pile, so I'm wavering...
