Karlene's Reading List

The five books (all fiction) about me are:
  1. Dune by Frank Herbert—my book of courage

  2. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd—my southern heritage

  3. Saints/Woman of Destiny by Orson Scott Card—the strongest woman I know

  4. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card—I hope to someday write a story this compelling

  5. Harriet the Spy by Loise Fitzhugh—the book that made me want to be a writer

The books I've chosen to read are:
  1. Uglies (Uglies Trilogy, Book 1) by Scott Westerfeld (REVIEW) (Faith)

  2. The Giver by Lois Lowry (Sarah Miller)

  3. The View from Saturday by EL Konigsburg (Sarah Miller)

  4. The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillippa Gregory (Margo)

  5. Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli (alisonwonderland)

I'm participating in several reading challenges right now, so I'm posting lots of reviews on my blog. But this link will bring up only my posts for the Something About Me reading challenge.

i've read - and loved - three of your books about you and two of the ones you're going to read (The Giver and Stargirl). The View from Saturday is on my Newbery and Book Awards lists, and i'm seriously considering Uglies for this list (but i'm having a hard time pinning myself down).

btw i'm in utah too!

I looooove Harriet the Spy! I read it a bunch of times, too. I even tried to keep a spy notebook, briefly.

uglies is on my list. faith has lent me the trilogy and they are waiting patiently for me. i have been very tempted to start this challenge but i am having difficulty keeping up with the summer reading challenge and am determined to finish my list by the end of next week. but man, i can't wait to get going on this challenge's reads!
