Southern Reading Challenge

southern.jpg I know, what am I doing joining another challenge! But, I just can’t help myself. I missed out on this challenge last year and I have some books that I really want to read that would be perfect for this challenge so I’m going to give it a go. Plus, I can’t resist making a book list. heh.

So, Maggie’s Southern Reading challenge starts May 15 and ends August 15 and requires reading three books. Click on the link to get more info and to sign up.

I’ve gone through my shelves and came up with the following list:

  • Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen. I know so many of you have read this one and loved it.
  • Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson. Another one I’ve been meaning to read for years now.
  • Sights Unseen by Kaye Gibbons. I read one of her books quite a long time ago and liked it so it’ll be nice to revisit with this author.

Other potential reads that I may switch out (you know I’m a moody reader) could be something by Billie Letts, Fannie Flagg, Edward P. Jones or maybe (finally) a William Faulkner book. Well, we’ll see how that goes.

You know what I would like to read actually? A good mystery series set in the South. Anyone have a recommendation? I love mysteries but I guess most of the ones I tend to read are set in other countries. If you’ve got a favorite let me know and maybe I can add it to my list.

Anyway, thanks again to Maggie for hosting the challenge and good luck to everyone who is participating!
