Spring into Reading

It's my first foray into the reading challenges at Callapidder Days!

I've never kept track of what I've read before, so this should be interesting. I'm wondering if my list is even long enough. Thankfully, there are only 3 on the list that I don't already have here at the house. I hope I am able to find them.

Fiction:

  • Lisey's Story, Stephen King
  • The Westing Game, Ellen Raskin
  • Fame, Karen Kingsbury
  • Forgiven, Karen Kingsbury
  • Found, Karen Kingsbury
  • Family, Karen Kingsbury
  • Forever, Karen Kingsbury
  • The Thirteenth Tale, Diane Setterfield
  • The Ultimate Gift, Jim Stovall
Nonfiction:
  • Where God Was Born, Bruce Feiler
  • Dear Church: Letters from a Disillusioned Generation, Sarah Cunningham
  • Facing Your Giants, Max Lucado
  • How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth, Fee and Stuart
  • Not a Tame Lion, Bruce Edwards
With the kids:
  • The Twenty-One Balloons, William Pene du Bois
  • The Apprentice, Pilar Molina Llorente
  • The Little Riders, Margaretha Shemin
  • A Little Princess, Francis Hodgson Burnett (hoping the boys can sit for this one!)
  • And the Word Came With Power, Joanne Shetler

Lisey's Story was FANTASTIC! I loved it so much that after I read the book, I listened to the audiobook too. If you're a King fan, I think you won't be able to put this one down.

Happy Reading!!

Your list looks great, and yes it's plenty long! :) I loved The Thirteenth Tale and The Westing Game. Great books! Thanks for being part of the challenge!

I've really enjoyed both Not a Tame Lion and The Thirteenth Tale. I hope you do, as well. Read your comment about A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and for the life of me, I can't remember the weaning thing. Now I'm intrigued and moving that one up in the stack. I like your blog. I have four teenagers, three dogs, three cats and a bird. What a circus, but I love it!

I haven't read any of Karen Kingsbury's work, but seeing your list I'll have to add some of her work to my summer list. Peeking at everyones reading lists is making my summer list really long. Oh well, that's what summer is for around here.

Enjoyed checking out your reading list. I enjoyed Max Lucado. I have seen The Thirteenth Tale on many a reading list and think I need to add this one to mine! Happy Reading!

Stock up on tissues before you begin Karen Kingsbury's series!! And I meant to list The Ultimate Gift on mine...oh, well, that's another book I bought my husband so I could read it:-)

Looks like a great list, and of course browsing all these lists brings more books for me to add to my own list.

My list is short this time.

Well after all the great comments about Karen Kingsbury, I'll have to check her out too (after my list of Spring Reading is finished!).

Looks like some good ones, Karen, my twin from a different mother. LOL!

The Thirteenth Tale was great. I wasn't sure about it at first, but I was so glad I kept reading. Have fun!

kardel said...

You have a great list. I might have to look at a few of those myself.

I've never read Karen Kingsbury before. Is *When Joy Came to Stay* one of a series? It's on my book list, because I got it for Christmas, but I don't know alot about it or about her works. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon for the reviews!

Hello!!! Lovely to "meet" you via the SRT 2007 :) Wow, great list...you will LOVE Karen Kingsbury's Firstborn series...one of my favs. Great list, have fun! :)

Boltbabe said...

Ok, I am an idiot. When I read the title, "The Apprentice" I actually thought it might be by the Donald. LOL! Great List! Don't forget to review if you can.

I broke a long Stephen King hiatus last Fall and read Lisey's story. It was pretty good--I remembered exactly what I liked, and didn't like about Stephen King.

Heidi said...

Thanks for stopping by to see my list.
Thr3e was "interesting?" Well now....that certainly gives me pause. Should I ditch it? I have read good reviews of his Circle Trilogy books.
Happy Reading!

Alexis said...
