I just finished the southern challenge! I liked every book I read and absolutely loved the first two. All books I read were from my original list of choices. I'm really looking forward to reading more by Fannie Flagg. Thanks to Maggie for hosting a fabulous challenge.
Here's the list of books I read:
1. Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg
2. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
3. Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind by Ann B. Ross
A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Catholic, with Asperger's, who reads as her obsession. These are the ramblings of the books I read or read aloud to my energetic Autistic 12yo.
I love reading almost any book from classics to mysteries to fantasy to manga. I read everything from Christian fiction/non-fiction to dark, paranormal horror novels, go figure. So I'm liable to offend just about everyone with my book choices LOL :-)
I sometimes go through stages of "genre love", I'm addicted to mystery thrillers, Catholic theology, memoirs, 20th century Chinese historical fiction & Victorian fiction and non-fiction, but you'll find I read an even wider variety of books than that, both fiction and non-fiction. I have a teensy fascination with macabre non-fiction books about death and anything about insane asylums.
I also tend to post a lot of reviews of juvenile/teen books, books I read aloud to my son and books he reads aloud to me but I still do a lot of adult reviews as well. I am so addicted to graphic novels and manga that I have a separate BLOG just for those reviews. I read well over 200 books a year, and for the first time ever made it to over 300 last year (2012)! Come join me you never know what new treasure you'll find to read here!
