Unread Authors Challenge

Unread Authors Challenge

My blogger friend, Ariel, is hosting an Unread Authors Challenge. The idea is to choose 6 books by neglected authors, or new-to-me authors and read them between September 1, 2007 and February 29, 2007. I have lots of books on my TBR pile written by authors I’ve never read before…so this one is a no-brainer!

Here are my six books:

1. Alentejo Blue, by Monica Ali (Completed February 22, 2008; read my review here)
2. The Blackwater Lightship, by Colm Toibin (Completed November 9, 2007; read my review here)
3. Doctor Zhivago, by Boris Pasternak (Completed November 24, 2007; read my review here)
4. What the Dead Know, by Laura Lippman
5. The Good Earth, by Pearl Buck (Completed November 28, 2007; read my review here)
6. Night Watch, by Sarah Waters (Completed February 12, 2008; read my review here)

Alternatives, Substitutes and Extras:

Stones From the River, by Ursela Hegi
A Woman in Jeruselum, by AB Yehoshua
The Lizard Cage, by Karen Connelly
All Aunt Hager’s Children, by Edward P. Jones
The Emperor’s Child, by Claire Messud (Completed December 12, 2007; read my review here)
A Bend in the River, by V.S. Naipal
