Summer Reading Thing Wrap-Up

It's time to wrap up my Summer Reading Thing list. I love reading things, or challenges, or whatever you want to call them. Karlene at Inksplasher hosted the Summer Reading Thing and it was a lot of fun.

I read 25 books. Some of them were on my original list, but most were just added as I found them or they came up on my list in the library. Most I liked, some I didn't. I discovered Lynn Austin's Refiner's Fire series and absolutely loved them! I didn't care for Painted Dresses or The Friday Night Knitting Club.

The books I read are as follows, in reverse order and all have been reviewed here on the book blog.

The Little Princesses, Marion Crawford
Summer at Tiffany, Marjorie Hart
A Promise to Remember, Kathryn Cushman
Mosaic: Pieces of My Life So Far, Amy Grant
Her Good Name, Josi Kilpack
Hershey, Michael D'Antonio
The Santa Letters, Stacy Gooch Anderson
Nothing to Regret, Tristi Pinkston
A Mile in My Flip-Flops, Melody Carlson
Tallgrass, Sandra Dallas
Painted Dresses, Patricia Hickman
Prince Caspian, C.S. Lewis
Breaking Dawn, Stephenie Meyer
Bringing Elizabeth Home, Ed and Lois Smart
September, Rosamunde Pilcher
The Darcys Give A Ball: A Gentle Joke, Jane Austen Style, Elizabeth Newark
A Light to My Path, Lynn Austin
Fire by Night, Lynn Austin
Candle in the Darkness, Lynn Austin
Hidden Places, Lynn Austin
A Dance to Remember, Anita Stansfield
Friday Night Knitting Club, Kate Jacobs
Then She Found Me, Elinor Lipman
Don't You Marry the Mormon Boys, Janet Kay Jensen
A Thousand Voices, Lisa Wingate

Thanks Karlene, for hosting this. I read anyway, but it's fun to have a little challenge to motivate me along. I'm now off to join Katrina's Fall Into Reading 2008 Challenge. Anyone care to join me?
