January 1 – December 31, 2010
Trish at Hey Lady! Watcha Readin’ is hosting the O.A.T.E.S. Challenge and I couldn’t resist. Here are the details:
O for Joyce Carol Oates, A for Margaret Atwood…maybe I could come up with other authors to fit T, E, and S!
Immediately Ernest Hemingway came to mind, and even though he doesn’t fit the rule that it’s the author’s last name that has to fit the acronym, he can slide since it’s ERNEST HEMINGWAY. Then Twitter came to my aid and it was decided that T could be Leo Tolstoy (yes, even *I* am cringing as I write that), and S can be for John Steinbeck.
Substitutions for the authors are allowed (except for Joyce Carol Oates) which is good, because I want to substitute a couple!
Here is what it will look like for me:
O – Joyce Carol Oates
A – Margaret Atwood
T – Rose Tremain
E – Louise Erdrich
S – Wallace Stegner
I am not picking books ahead of time (I have several books by each author on my TBR pile).
There are several participation levels. I’m choosing: Whole OATES – 5+ books
Here are the books I’ve read for this challenge with links to reviews:
- The Year of the Flood, by Margaret Atwood – COMPLETED January 7, 2010; rated 3.5/5; read my review.
- The Penelopiad, by Margaret Atwood – COMPLETED June 13, 2010; rated3.5/5; read my review.
