Jodi Picoult challenge

Thursday, December 31, 2009

I'm joining the Jodi Picoult Challenge hosted by Jennifer at crazy-for-books.

It is sort of an informal challenge in which she requires only that you read at least one of her (JP's) books this year!

I think I posted about my progress in reading her books here recently. I absolutely love her books which I started reading in 2005 with My Sister's Keeper. I continued to read her books and now buy them whenever they come out. In 2008, my mom, sister, and I drove over to St. Petersburg to attend a luncheon/ book signing that she was at for her Change of Heart tour. I believe my sister and mom have read all of her books, and I am aiming for that goal. But sometimes I get comfortable with challenges and never do them, lol! I have had a "goal" of completing all her books for the last 2 years and never got around to it. So in 2010, I will!

Here are what I have left to read:
  • Songs of the Humpback Whale (1992)
  • Harvesting the Heart (1993)
  • Plain Truth (1999)
  • Second Glance (2003)
  • House Rules (2010)

Good luck! She's never really a hard one to pick up. You are pretty much guaranteed a good story!

Happy New Year to you and yours!

This is such a great idea! Jodi Picoult is a wonderful author. If you like her style, you should check out Barbara Delinsky's books when you're through with hers. She deals with similar issues, and I really enjoyed her latest book Not My Daughter. Happy reading :)

Hi Lauren!
I definitely like Barbara Delinsky's books too! In fact, I'm reading Not My Daughter right now. I think my favorite is Family Tree, but I also really liked The Woman Next Door which was my first one by her.
