I just completed my local library's spring reading challenge. Here is what I read (click on links for my personal thoughts and reviews):
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by B. Kingsolver
Serve God, Save the Planet by M. Sleeth
Frugal Luxuries by T. McBride
Eat, Pray, Love by E. Gilbert
A Light in the Window and These High Green Hills by J. Karon--I am captivated by this sweet series!
Idol Eyes by Mandisa
Living Simply by J. Heim
Grace Eventually by A. Lamott--not my favorite work by Lamott
Summer Snow by N. Baart (The sequel to After the Leaves Fall--As with the last book, it took me a little while to get into the story, but once I did I had a hard time putting it down!)
Mom to Mom by E. Morgan (a MOPS book)
Into the Wild by J. Krakauer (This was a re-read. We recently saw the movie and I wanted to go through the book again because it is such a haunting true story!)
My goal was to read 12 books, and that's what I did exactly. Having a deadline definitely motivated me to stick to my list. I did substitute a couple books from my original list. My husband advised me against reading A Thousand Splendid Suns after having read it himself, and I obliged. The second omission was The Jane Austen Book Club because I found other titles I was more excited to read, after finding out more about the storyline.
