Today is the start of the Spring Reading Challenge hosted by Katrina. It will run until June 20 and it’s a good way to read any books you’ve been putting off! I believe she will have some prizes/giveaways along the way so be sure to check in with her every week or so. There’s no pressure to finish everything you pick and it’s ok to change your list if your little heart so desires! That’s a good thing for me because I can be a very moody reader at times. I usually try to include one non-fiction book when I do these because I just don’t read it otherwise but right now I’m picking all fiction. Unless you know, the mood strikes me to change later!
Here’s a few I’m hoping to get read over the next couple of months:
Mozart’s Sister by Nancy Moser
The Way We Were> by Judy Baer
The Pact by Jodi Picoult
Sweetgrass by Mary Alice Monroe………all four of these books belong to my sister who loans lots of books to me with no time limit on returning them! But I’ve had these for many months now and just haven’t been motivated to read them so I’m hoping this will get me going.
Word Gets Around by Lisa Wingate
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers; I actually just bought that book this week on a whim. I’ve always heard what a good book it is so I’m looking forward to it.

Not pictures is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer; my library doesn’t have it but I hope to get my hands on it sometime in the next few months.

Happy spring reading!

    Oh, The Pact was one of my favorite Jodi Picoult books, maybe the one that got me hooked.

    Thanks for your list – I’m going to look for Mozart’s Sister. 🙂

    Thanks for your list. I just love to read. My life with the grandniece twins has been too hectic lately to do much reading but it is such a refreshing and relaxing hobby. l hope you have a great weekend. Our weather is a little cooler the last two days but it is still March. BLESSINGS!

    Redeeming Love is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I hope you like it.

    Redemming Love is good and I have found it is on a lot of people’s favorite list. I loved The Guernsey. I bought it and read it last year and I want to reread it this year. 🙂

    I’m so happy to see you joined, Gail! I would have had to kick your behind if you hadn’t, seeing how it was you who got me started on these dog-gone reading challenges in the first place. 😉 Rich bought me Guernsey recently, and I’m really looking forward to that one, too!

  11. Tammy Says:

    Wow, I forgot about Spring Reading Thing…I did that the first year!
    These all sound like great reads…I haven’t read any of them, but like you, I’ve heard such great things about Redeeming Love and really want to read it soon!

  12. Tammy Says:

    P.S….I just noticed you’re reading Hot Tropics, Cold Feet…I read that one last year too, it was so cute! 🙂

  13. Katrina @ Callapidder Days Says:

    I just started Guernsey Literary, etc. the other night, and so far, I’m really enjoying it, so I do hope you’re able to get it this spring! Either way, it looks like you have some great books lined up! Thanks for being part of the challenge!

    I just finished the Guernsey Literary Society book and it was great! (I had a wait a long time to get it from library too, and it was worth it.) Happy reading (and thanks for stopping by my blog). 🙂
