Anybody Care for 2nds? - Completed


In October-December read three books by authors you've only read one other book by.

"I know many of us have discovered several new authors as we have participated in the gazillion challenges we joined this past year (Joy said endearingly!) and I also know that we have stumbled upon some books that we thought were really great and some maybe not-so-great. Well, here's the perfect excuse opportunity to explore 3 new-found authors that you would love to go back for a second helping. I hope you'll join me."

My picks:
  • "Flowers In The Attic" by Virginia Andrews (have read "My Dear Audrina")
  • "The Amateur Marriage" by Anne Tyler (have read "Digging To America")
  • "The Junglebook" by Rudyard Kipling (have read "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi")

Alternatives
  • Amy Tan (have read "The Joy Luck Club")
  • Agatha Christie (have read "Murder in the Orient Express")
  • Valerie Martin (have read "Mary Reilly")
  • George Orwell (have read "1984")
  • Sarah Dessen (have read "Just Listen")
  • Charles Dickens (have read "A Christmas Carol")
  • Isabel Wolff (have read "Rescuing Rose")
  • Inkspell - Cornelia Funke (have read nothing yet but will have read "Inkheart" by next month)
  • John Irving (have read "The World According to Garp")
  • The Marvelous Land of Oz - L. Frank Baum (have read "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz")

Glad to have you joining us, Maria! It's great to have an alternates list because you never know when one might strike your fancy. :) I'm looking forward to beginning.
