Becky, Becky, Becky. I hope you know you are KILLING me with all your challenge ideas!! This one, however, is one that I just can't pass up. It's the End of the World Challenge, and it's hosted by Becky from Becky's Book Reviews. And although I have been using these challenges to try to broaden my reading, this one goes right back to my roots! Rules are easy. Read 3 novels from May 2008 - Sept. 15, all dealing with end-of-the world or post-apocalyptic subject matter.
Well...I love this stuff. The Stand by Stephen King has been one of my favorite books since I first read it....YEARS ago. It's actually one of the few novels that has ever garnered a re-read from me. I've read it 3 times!! Not many books compare to it, but I guess I'm going to have to try!!
Here is my challenge list. Yes, I know. Longer than 3, but I just can't help myself. It's a sickness, you know.
- Life as We Knew It by Sarah Beth Pfeffer
- The Road by Cormac McCarthy
- Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
- A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter Miller, Jr.
- The Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld (Uglies, Pretties, Specials, Extras)
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer
Oh yeah...this is going to be fun!! And since I know you are all singing REM in your head (and yes, I know every word to this song!):
Coming soon: My list for Darla's Irresistable Review Challenge!! At this point, it's hopeless to resist!!
