Plenty will be added, I'm sure. And probably a few will be taken away.

Visit Life as Mom for her Booking It challenge this year. It will be fun to follow along as others tackle their reading lists, whatever the size or challenge.


  1. I read The Grapes of Wrath and The Catcher in the Rye last year -- totally different from reading them in high school.

  2. So I finished Life of Pi - my review will post on 1/10. But I totally agree the first 100 pages are challenging, but it's worth it to keep pushing through. Thanks for the encouragement!

  3. You will love The Book Thief! Fantastic!
