Hello
Just wondering if there's an error...the instruction says 'if you are entering "animal titles" instead of "relative titles"?

Lisa in Oz,
Thank you for pointing that out. They should all be fixed up now.

Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith was a good read!

My 2nd book for the challenge is The General's Daughter by Nelson DeMille. It's a murder mystery set at a army base & was a very good and involved story.

Jean said...

Just posted my review of The Zookeeper's Wife. I think this makes five down and one to go!

Hope you don't mind, I linked to the review of A Father's Law that I left for another challenge.

I just passed this one on to my sister. Can't wait to hear her reactions to it.

My relative book is THE WEDNESDAY SISTERS. This is a great book club book or for people who want to be writers. The relationships of these women friends and how they change during a time in our country when women were homemakers. I reviewed this on my blog you can see here:

I liked the book but it wasn't a fast read for me for some reason but I still would recommend it.

Hi,
my review for my second book, Seventh Son, is up now in my blog. An interesting opening to a fantasy series which offers an alternative history of the early settlers in America. Definitely worth recommending!

Trisha said...

Like Jean, I read Diane Ackerman's The Zookeeper's Wife for this part of the challenege. I definitely recommend it!

Emily said...

Did the Mr. Linkys go away? Or am I just weirdly unable to find them?

Anyway, I just reviewed my Relative book, Robert Goolrick's A Reliable Wife. My review's up over here. Thanks!

It is posted here.

I have forgotten to leave my reviews here! I'm such a spaz. :)

I read Secret Daughter: A Mixed-Race Daughter and the Mother Who Gave Her Away by June Cross. It was amazing. I recommend it to anyone who likes memoirs or stories that tug on your heartstrings or stories on resilience and determination.

My relative book is the truly fascinating memoir of Laurie Sandell: The Impostor's Daughter.

Paula said...

I read "Daughter of Fortune" a couple of months ago but forgot to leave the review here. It was a very good story set in the days of the California Gold Rush.
