I finished this challenge much faster than I thought it would. Probably because it was so much fun! Thanks to Callista at SMS Book Reviews for hosting! And I look forward to participating in the Jewish Literature challenge!
My finished challenge books are:
- The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
- The Hours by Michael Cunningham
- Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie
- Le Divorce by Diane Johnson
The best book: I liked all of these books, but I think the Namesake just squeaks out on top.
What book could I have done without: I liked them all.
Any new authors? They are all new to me!
What did you learn -- about anything -- through this challenge? I seem to read a lot of books that have been made into movies--more than I realize. If there's a next time, I might delve into a non-fiction book that has been turned into a documentary or movie.
