This was held by Darla D and the challenge was to pick 8 books you have been inspired to read from reading the reviews of other bloggers. It ran between 1/5/08 and 1/9/08. The list of books I read is below along with the person and blog who first inspired me to pick up the book.
1. The Three Incestuous Sisters - Audrey Niffenegger (Nymeth Things Mean a Lot and Kim at Bold Blue Adventure)
2. Beauty - Robin McKinley (Nymeth Things Mean a Lot was the first review of this I read in 2007 but my post links to many other reviews since)
3. Transformations - Anne Sexton (Nymeth Things Mean a Lot pushed me over the edge to read this)
4. Zel - Donna Jo Napoli (Miss Erin's review was the first time I heard of this book and author througu the Twisted Fairy Tales challenge)
5. The Book of Ballads - Charles Vess (Chris at Stuff as Dreams are Made On inspired me to read this one)
6. Uglies - Scott Westerfeld (Becky's Book Reviews was the first review of this series I read last year)
7. Messenger - Lois Lowry (Michelle at 3M)
8. The Complete Maus - Art Spiegelman (Nymeth Things Mean a Lot was the first of many reviews I read)
It's very difficult to pick my favourite as I read them all on glowing recommendations from bloggers I trust. I think they will all tie in equal first place to be honest! Thanks Darla this was a great challenge to host and I hope you run it again with perhaps slightly longer to read the novels.
