2nds Challenge Wrap-Up

>> Thursday, December 13, 2007

The 2nds Challenge was hosted by my friend Joy who challenged us to:

Between October 1st and December 31st read 3 books by authors that you have only read one other.

I selected three books for this challenge:

The best book: I Am the Messenger was by far my favorite, although I did enjoy Birds of a Feather.

What book could I have done without? Human Croquet was a huge disappointment. I’ve read two of Kate Atkinson’s books now and have felt let down by both

Any new authors? No, all were second reads by definition of the challenge

Books I did not finish: finished all I started

What did I learn? In Birds of a Feather I learned quite a bit about life in England after World War 1. I haven’t read much about that location and time frame so the economic hardships and the troubles the veterans went through was fairly new to me.

Thanks Joy! This was a fun challenge

Congratulations on completing the challenge! I am sorry the Kate Atkinson books you've read were disappointing. I enjoyed Case Histories and do hope to read more by her one day.

Hooray! I'm glad this challenge was a success for you.

Literary Feline: Thanks - I've heard lots of great reviews about Case Histories, so I'll probably keep that one on the TBR list. I was just not impressed with her first two, though. Writers can grow and improve :-)

Joy: Thank YOU for hosting this! Maybe this one should become an annual event too?

Thanks for reading. Feel free to leave a comment. I read and respond them here although not always right away. If you would prefer an email response let me know.
