Raved-About Reads Challenge

Raved-About Reads Challenge

Another challenge that I need! Honest, I was also thinking of starting this, when someone else did. That’s great so I can just tag along ;)

Rules: Read books you’ve always heard people rave about and thought you should read yourself… but always put off reading “until later”.

Starting: 30 June 2008
It’s perpetual challenge so it has no time limit. Although I have no idea why you would have a starting date if you don’t have an end date. Doesn’t make sense. Anyway, I’ll set an end date for myself, which is the end of the year: 31 December 2008.


I obviously didn’t make it by 31 December 2008, so perpetual it is now!

My list is:

1) Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
2) Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
3) The Thirteen Tale by Diane Setterfield
4) The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
5) A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini (04/09)
6) The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory

newly added
7) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
8) The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly (03/09)
9) The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

All sitting on my shelf except for three, so I don’t even need to bother looking. Just read them already!

ps: I like the girl in the image

  1. Hey — glad you’re joining in on the “Raved-About Reads” challenge! Did you really have the same challenge idea in mind? That’s funny! :P

    And, I had to have a start date just so I could make it “official” about this being a “Challenge”. Made sense enough to me, but hey — I can be strange at times. LOL. :P

    You’ve got a nice list started, and I see we have several books in common on our lists. :) Good luck to you!

  2. katrina: Oh see, everybody has read those!

    MizB: Yea really, I had the same challenge in mind! :)
    It’s interesting when I checked out your list that I’ve never heard/read about some of the books there.

  3. This is a wonderful challenge idea. I am on my way over to see about signing up. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I finished Atonement and in the end, I really enjoyed it.
