Lisa's Reading List

Hi all! Guess I should post my reading list too, since I'm hosting this challenge!! As I wrote on my book blog, I wasn't really thinking when I started this challenge and it happens to run the same months that I will be studying for my Licensing exams to be a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. Ugh. Anyway, originally I wanted to read one book from each person's list. I had no idea so many people would sign up!! There's no way. So here are my lists; sorry I didn't have time to alphabetize and link them nicely like many of you did!

I couldn't narrow my list down to one book a month, so there are six I'll definitely read:

The Eyre Affair (heidijane and Valentina)
Number the Stars (booklogged) or The Giver (Sarah Miller) - whichever I can get
Stick Kid (JMC)
I Am The Messenger (Jill)
The Thirteenth Tale (Kristin)
Operating Instructions (in memory of Nattie)

I also want to read these, and will if I have time:

Ender's Game (Becky)
Pride and Prejudice (Bookworm and Pattie)
March (Dewey)
Twilight (Suey)
Papa Married a Mormon (Suey)
Evening Class (Raidergirl)
Fall On Your Knees (Christina)

Hi, Lisa: Let me know what you think of the Zusak book. I loved it - almost as good as The Book Thief!

Happy Reading!
