Themed Reading Challenge 2009 – My Progress

February 1 – July 31, 2009

I am hosting this challenge in 2009 (read about the rules on this post) and have decided to stretch myself by choosing Option 3: Read at least 6 books that share MORE than two themes.

My themes are:

  • Female authors
  • New to me authors
  • The plot has some sort of mystery which must be solved
  • A child or children play a central role in the book

Here is my tentative reading list:

  1. What the Dead Know, by Laura Lippman (Completed June 16, 2009; rated 4.5/5; read my review)
  2. The Good Thief, by Hannah Tinti (Completed July 29, 2009; rated 3/5; read my review)
  3. Finding Nouf, by Zoe Ferraris (Complete July 24, 2009; rated 4/5; read my review)
  4. In the Woods, by Tana French (Completed May 22, 2009; rated 4/5; read my review)
  5. Between Here and April, by Deborah Copaken Kogan (Completed July 20, 2009; rated 4/5; read my review)
  6. Last Night in Montreal, by Emily St. John Mandel (Completed June 1, 2009; rated 4.5/5; read my review)
