2nds Challenge

I can't resist a good challenge so here's another one I'm doing. It's the 2nds Challenge hosted by Thoughts of Joy. I've read a number of books by authors and wonder how I'd like a second book by them, so I thought I really wanted to give this one a try.

Here's my list:

Saturday by Ian McEwan

This has been on my TBR list for awhile so I thought I'd put it in a challenge to see if that would motivate me to read it.

The Magician's Assistant
The Magician's Assistant by Ann Patchett

I loved Bel Canto and found this one in a bookstore recently. I hope I like it just as much.

A Thousand Splendid Suns
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

I really enjoyed The Kite Runner when I read it for a One Book One City event. I've read some very good things about this one so I thought I'd try it.

All three great choices! Okay, so I don't really know that. They're all books I want to read though. :-) I haven't yet read an Ann Patchett book but I hope to read both Bel Canto and The Magician's Assistant someday. A Thousand Splended Suns is on my list for this challenge too!

Good choices! I've read Saturday and I've read The Kite Runner... both very good! I can't wait for your review on A Thousand Splendid Suns. It's on my long list of books for next year! Thanks for visiting my blog! Diane

Book and Literary - I've got A Thousand Splendid Suns on my mooch list. I hope it turns up soon.

If you liked The Kite Runner, I think you'll like A Thousand Splendid Suns as well! I really enjoyed Bel Canto as well. I haven't read anything by Ian McEwan yet, but I do have a few of his books on my shelf...

Trish - I'm looking forward to my choices. We seem to have the same taste in books. Thanks for visiting.
