Book Awards Reading Challenge

Finally finished!

Some books were good, others so-so. See the blog for detailed reviews. I’m surprised how difficult it was for me to find books to read. I think I’ve previously read most of the books I was interested in. Here is a list of the ten books I read to complete the challenge:

Wild Swans-Jung Chang-British Book Award

The Gates of the Alamo-Stephen Harrigan-Spur Award

The Idea of Perfection-Kate Grenville-Orange Prize

Mariner’s Compass-Earlene Fowler-Agatha Award

Divisadero-Michael Ondaatje-Governor General’s Award

The Mandelbaum Gate-Muriel Spark-James Tait Black Memorial Prize

Get a Life-Nadine Gordimer-Nobel Prize

Finding Nouf-Zoe Ferraris-Alex Award

Homestead-Rosina Lippi-PEN/Hemingway Award

Years of Grace-Margaret Ayer Barnes-Pulitzer Prize
