Doing Tequila Book Shots!
Mood:  lazy
Now Playing: 2012 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge: Readingwithtequila
Topic: Book Reviews
Because I will not get out of my Romance Novel groove unless forced to, I decided to sign up for the 2012 Book Blogger Recommendtion Challenge being hosted at The best part of this challenge is that most of the titles on the list are ones I wanted to read anyway!
I decided to do Level 1 of the challenge, which is to read at least 5 books from the recommended  book list 
  1. Delirium by Lauren Oliver 
  2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (more like re-read, because I read this in high school and loved it!)
  3. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green 
  4. First Love Cookie Club by Lori Wilde (because I already own it!) 
  5. Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr 
While reviewing the list, I realized that I had read a few of the titles on them. Here they are, please let me know which ones you've read or plan to read.
  1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen  (got a third of way through and I just didn't like it)
  2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (I read the whole series)
  3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (My favorite book and heroine!)
  4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K Rowling 
  5. The World According To Garp by John Irving (I listened to this on audiobook ten years ago and it was just awesome.)
  6. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee 
  7. Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank 
  8. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton (Read this twice!)
  9. Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote 
  10. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (I tried but it was too wacky. Heathcliff was nuts.) 
  11. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery 
  12. You Against Me by Jenny Downham (Started but I have to finish.)
  13. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (Started and I have to finish. I love Jo.)
  14. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling 
  15. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen (*Sigh* Hated it.)
  16. A B C's by Dr. Seuss 
  17. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marques 
  18. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling 
  19. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz (I got halfway through it but hated it.)
  20. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer  (Badly written but enjoyable on a certain level. Couldn't be bothered with the sequels.)
