What Do You Want to Read in 2009?

APOOO Book Club (my favorite online book club) is having a reading challenge. Avid readers commit to reading a book a week for the first 13 weeks of the year. Pretty cool. Learn more by clicking here. As much as I love to read, I have to finished the manuscript for my second novel by summer, so that's my challenge. I also have about 7 books I'd like to finish from 2008 before I can get to my 2009 selections.

Here's my list of Christian Fiction books for the first couple of months:

The Someday List by Stacy Hawkins Adams
Chosen by Patricia Haley
The Bishop's Daughter by Tiffany Warren
Mom's the Word by Marilynn Griffith
The List by Sherri Lewis
Deliver Me From My Enemies by Sharon Oliver

What Christian Fiction books are you looking forward to in 2009?

I'm definitely going to be reading the Bishops Daughter (Tiffany Warren is one of my TOP Christian authors)

I have a lot of books period that I want to read in 2009. However, with school and trying to get back into my writing, it will be a hard feat.

From your list I see three that I want to read.

The Somebody List
The Bishop's Daughter
The List

I am attempting the challenge. I will try to finalize my list in the next week or so. By then I hope I have already read at least two of my choices.

Happy Reading.

Yasmin,

You did review Sharon's book. I remember it.

Yasmin said...

LOL...yep we did I went and checked the records...I can't believe I didn't read her book tho...will have to check it out.

I'm so ashamed it's still on my TBR shelf because Sharon's like family. I haven't read either of Dwan Abrams books and we're in the same writers group. I guess it't the Nazareth syndrome. You know "Isn't that Mary and Joseph's son?" Lawd. Now Sherri Lewis, she gets her read. We're critique partners, so I know The List is excellent, but it's been a year since I read it and I really want to read it in book form.

rotflol...you are too funny regarding the Nazareth syndrome and I'm right there with you about reading friends books...I've been so bad...but hmmm at least I purchased copies and I hope to read all of them this year. ;)
