Raved-About Reads Challenge

Raved About Reads
Host: MizB (but has its own blog)
dates: June 30, 2008 - June 30, 2010
books required: 3

I will try to read at least three of these books listed. I might add to the list as the months go on. But I'll try to read those in addition to three original books. The list is subject to change. But I'll try to be honest about which books are added on later.

The Once and Future King by T. H White*
The Time Traveller’s Wife - Audrey Niffenegger*
The Stand by Stephen King*
American Gods by Neil Gaiman*
Into the Forest by Jean Hegland*

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell**
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd**
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez **
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez**
Life of Pi by Yann Martell **
Dune by Frank Herbert**

Marley and Me - John Grogan***
Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy***
War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy***
Dr. Zhivago by Boris Pasternak***
March by Geraldine Brooks***

If and it might be a big "if" anyone is interested in what books I think people should read...

The Giver by Lois Lowry
City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud (the whole Bartimaeus trilogy)
The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan

Life as we knew it was a haunting but enjoyable book. I couldn't put it down and it stayed with me for months.

Uglies was good too but it was part of a series just so you know.
