Spring Reading Thing 2010: Completed!



Can you believe it's the last day of spring? I can since it's been 90+ degrees every day for the past couple weeks. I can't imagine what July and August are going to be like this year! With the end of spring comes the end of the Spring Reading Thing 2010, which was hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days. I had set out to read 9 books for this challenge, knowing I'd probably read more than that but not wanting to overextend myself just in case!

I finished all of the books on my Spring Reading Thing list! I just finished the last one on Friday night. Here are the books that were on my original list, with links to the reviews I've written so far:
  1. A Hundred Feet Over Hell by Jim Hooper ~ for publisher review Review
  2. Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze ~ for publisher review Review
  3. The Piano Teacher: A Novel by Janice Y. K. Lee ~ for April book club Review
  4. Rebecca by Daphne De Maurier ~ for May book club Review
  5. Not My Daughter by Barbara Delinsky ~ for June book club Review
  6. The Post-War Dream by Mitch Cullin ~ for Read Your Own Books Challenge Review to come
  7. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls ~ for Read Your Own Books Challenge Review to come
  8. One Foot in Eden: A Novel by Ron Rash ~ for Local Authors Challenge Review
  9. Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach ~ for Birth Year Challenge Review
In addition to the books on my list, I read a lot more, mostly due to the fact that I can't seem to say no to publicists!
  1. Guest House by Barbara K. Richardson Review
  2. The Power of Your Child's Imagination by Charlotte Reznick, PhD Review
  3. The Journey Home by Michael Baron Review
  4. Life, In Spite of Me by Kristen Jane Anderson Review
  5. The Last Christian by David Gregory Review
  6. Skinny is Overrated by Danielle Milano, MD Review
  7. Freedom's Call by John Walker Review
That makes 16 adult books in spring, not to mention all the children's books I read with the kids too. It's been a very reading-heavy spring!

I'm looking forward to Katrina's Fall Into Reading challenge that starts on the first day of fall, but in the meantime, I'm starting my own Summer Reading Challenge to fill the gap. You can read about it here. And if you're interested in joining me, come back tomorrow and sign up!

  2. I passed up the Last Christian but now I'm sorry I did after reading everyone's great reviews on it. You did a great job with your challenge.

    I am wanting to read "I am Hutterite". Are you enjoying it? I have some very good Hutterite friends and know quite a few who have left their colonies.
