Hi Annie!
I'm starting with the time category reading Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. Suspense, romance, unconditional irrevocable love, blood thirsty vampires...
Happy Reading :)

Started and finished this on New Year's Day!

T said...

Happy Reading!

I just realised that Breaking Dawn would do very nicely for this category. Twilight was read at the end of last year - I just couldn't wait.
Very brief review written on my blog.

Sue Q said...

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day might actually be stretching it a little for this category, because I believe it's meant to be a particular time of day, not the whole day, but if you read the book you'll see it makes sense. Miss P is a dowdy, old governess who's out of work and looking for some stability in her life, and she happens across Miss La Fosse, a flighty Hollywood starlet, who takes Miss P under her wing for a day and changes her life forever.
I've heard it referred to One of the Lost Cinderella Stories, and that couldn't be more true! I enjoyed it very much.

4th book for this challenge is First Dawn by Judith Miller. Really enjoyed the book. It's a look at how the early settlers had to deal with unscrupulous people as well as enduring the hardships the land presented.

I read THE HOUR I FIRST BELIEVED by Wally Lamb and hope the word HOUR is OK for time of day? If not, I am currently (MOAN) reading TWILIGHT by Stephenie Meyer for my book club because they chose it. I only moan as every middle school girl I teach is reading it for two years so I am tired of it. IF the Wally Lamb book counts,you can find my review here. http://bookinwithbingo.blogspot.com/2009/02/bingos-bookin-review.html#comments THANKS :D

Hi Annie & Debi,
Keeping to my resolution to choose only Australian titles, I've now read 2 from the Profession category: The Zookeeper's War by Steven Conte and The Lieutenant by Kate Grenville, and have just finished The Evening of the Holiday by Shirley Hazzard.

My pick for this catagory is:
Dead Until Dark: Southern Vampire Mysteries volume 1, by Charlaine Harris

I didn't write a review for this book, so I'll just post my thoughts here.

I really liked this first book. It had mystery, romance, suspense, vampires, and all the makings for the perfect book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves vampires, or is interested in the genre.

For this category I read Joy in the Morning by Betty Smith, which I ended up loving. It's about newlyweds in 1927. Here's my review:

I just finished my Time of Day book: Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian: Or the Evening Redness in the West. My review is linked, but be warned that although I liked the book, it was really gruesome & I talk about that a bit in my review.

This is also my last book for the challenge. Thanks for hosting; it's been really fun!
