The TBR Triple Dog Dare



Triple Dog Dare January 1, 2014 – April 2014

I am a little late to this party but very excited about the TBR Triple Dog Dare Reading Challenge hosted by CB at his blog, Ready When You Are, C.B..  I’ve been reading books from my shelf for the past few months because, when I went through them looking for a particular title, I found some great books.  There are still plenty of books I want to read and don’t yet own, but I’ve got a good start.  I especially want to participate in this meme if this is going to be the last year it's hosted. Hopefully somebody will host this meme next year!  Okay, enough of that!
 
Here's a list of books I hope to read while participating in this meme. Some I will read, and some will be replaced with others and so on and so forth:
 
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
Andrew's Brain by E. L. Doctorow
Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
The Weight of Heaven by Thrity Umrigar
Bingo's Run by James A. Levine
The Fault in our Stars by John Green
A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly
The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady by Elizabeth Stuckey-French
Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCamm
The Gathering by Anne Enright
Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson
The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by by Allison Hoover Bartlett
Take the Long Way Home by Gail Caldwell
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Slammerkin by Emma Donoghue
The Welsh Girl by Peter Ho Davies
A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
Running the Rift by Naomi Benaron
The Story of Lucy Gault by William Trevor

  7. Oops! I haven't yet read The Fault in Our Stars. I'm saving that for later this year. I meant to write that, but my editing must not have taken. Phones and comments don't mix!
