Reading Challenges 2012: The Book Garden

Saturday, May 5, 2012

Birgit is an Austrian writer who owns a wonderful blog The Book Garden. I don't usually follow blogs about books and if I do, I quickly get tired of them. This blog is an exception. I think I found her through a giveaway hop, but her posts captured my interest and I became a regular reader. Naturally I couldn't resist when she announced to host two reading challenges on her blog. 

In this challenge you have to read books with more than 700 pages. I became a fan of long books since I first read A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. I decided to start with 4 Books - Berry Tea Devotee. I may upgrade to a higher level later (I don't want to get too ambitious ;)). 

My list:
1. 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
2. A Feast for Crows by  George R. R. Martin
3. A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin
4. Cryptonomicon  by Neal Stephenson

Finished! :)

I must admit that I have never heard of Dean Koontz before, but I like Birgit's taste in books in general (and I think that her opinions are intelligent and interesting), so I didn't hesitate with joining the challenge. I picked first level (3 Books - Odd Thomas' Mailman) and I will move on if I will like him enough. 

My list:
1. Life Expectancy
2. Watchers
3. Odd Thomas

Completed! ^_^

Searching for a cool reading challenge? You are warmly invited to join me! :)
