readalong: southern reading challenge three
posted by soe 1:03 pm

Since it’s June, I thought it high time I join some book-themed challenges. Unfortunately, the one I need most, which is to review all the books you’ve read to date this year, seems not to be offered anywhere. In the meantime, I’ll just add some new books to the pile.

Last year, I signed up for Maggie’s summer reading challenge and failed miserably — I neglected to read any of the three books I’d planned on. This year I plan to succeed in my goal of reading three Southern books before August 15 for the Southern Reading Challenge Three.

(Maggie’s challenge does have some possibility of getting me to review the books in a timely fashion, as she has deadlines for posting each review.)

My intention will be to read:

  • The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
  • Mudbound by Hillary Jordan
  • Flush by Carl Hiaasen

But I admit I may substitute based on library availability and sustained interest levels once I start.

If you have any Southern-themed suggestions, I’m open to them.
