The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White (with my son)
We Are All Welcome Here by Elizabeth Berg
Wicked by Gregory Maguire
I read this for my "evil" choice for the What's in A Name 4 challenge and also because it has been on my TBR list for a really long time! I can't believe I waited so long to read this! I ended up listening to it because I had a hard time reading it and I find when that happens, it's easier for me to listen, if that makes any sense! I found that once I got back the first part and they were actually at Shizz (sp), I really got into the story. As I listened I couldn't help but compare it to the musical and of course, it is so different. Aside from wondering what goes on in Gregory Maguire's head (and frankly, being a little worried--lol), I honestly enjoyed this book and the real story of the Wicked Witch of the West. Of course, I will have to watch the Wizard of Oz again soon!
The House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne
I read this for the following challenges: my "number" choice for the What's in a Name 4 challenge, the 1001 books you must read challenge, and the Celebrate the Author challenge. I think I may have a new favorite author on my hands! Other than The Scarlet Letter, I have never read anything by Hawthorne and I absolutely loved this!
The Old Man of the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
I read this for the the following challenges: my "life stage" choice for the What's in a Name 4 Challenge and the Celebrate the Author challenge. This was my first time reading Hemingway and I was surprised by what a quick read this turned out to be! I enjoyed the determination of the Old Man in fighting his battle against the big fish.
The Silver Boat by Luanne Rice
Stories I only Tell my Friends by Rob Lowe
