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:
- Birds of a Feather by Jacqueline Winspear
- Human Croquet by Kate Atkinson
- I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
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
