Southern Reading Challenge Update
I finished Maggie's Southern Reading Challenge earlier this week. As you might recall, I compiled a list of 13, but only needed to read three in the three month period. Here's what I wound up choosing (click on the titles to go to my reviews):
gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson (Georgia)
Up Island by Anne Rivers Siddons (Georgia)
The Great Santini by Pat Conroy (South Carolina)
Unfortunately, none of these were terribly impressive, and I'd be hard pressed to pick one over the other.
Thank you, Maggie, for hosting this challenge. I'm going to hang on to my list just in case you decide to do it again next year.
