The Eponymous Challenge Completed

>> Monday, March 31, 2008

I’ve completed another challenge. Hosted by Coversgirl, The Eponymous Challenge was another one that fit in well with books I was already reading for other challenges.

For this one, we had to read 4 books whose titles were the name of one or more of the characters, or a description of one or more of the characters

I read these 4 books:

  1. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl was originally on my list as a re-read for the Heart of a Child Challenge. It was wonderful to read this book all on one rainy Sunday. A perfect way to relive the thoroughly enjoyable experience of this book.
  2. Smonk by Tom Franklin was a disappointment after his so very excellent Hell at the Breech. I still love his writing and will read his short story collection.
  3. City Boy by Herman Wouk was just a charming tale of growing up with a bit of humor tossed in with the heartwarming stuff and nostalgia.
  4. The Sisterhood by Michael Palmer was an excellent first novel and an introduction to an author whose books I’ve added to my TBR list

The only one I didn’t like was Smonk. The other three were from 3 very distinct genres and I enjoyed them all.

Another challenge moved to the completed column for me. If you’re interested, the challenge doesn’t end until May 31, 2008. There’s plenty of time. I’d be willing to guess that you could still join in the fun.

Congrats on finishing the challenge!

I just noticed over on the "Tuesday Where are You?" that you are reading A Great Deliverance. I loved that book. I'm reading Lynely and Havers right now too! The second one, Payment in Blood.

Congrats! I think I've become a challenge drop-out. Too much going on these days, not to mention all the ARCs calling out to be read first. :)

Nicola: I'm loving A Great Deliverance - how's the second one?

Les: I only rarely get ARCs so I'm really focusing on using books that are already on my TBR list for challenges this year - makes it easier.

TeddyRose: thanks!

Ooo. I wouldn't have thought of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as eponymous, but of course it is! Nice call! Have you ever read the sequel? ( I think it must be Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator?)

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.
