Stacy's Books

books, movies, and boy

Six in Six, 2015

I saw this at JoAnn’s who saw it at Jo’s and I had to participate.  They both chose slightly different categories so I’m choosing my favorites.  I’ve only read 33 books so far and a few that made the lists I haven’t even reviewed yet but it was a fun exercise.  Why not join in too?

  1. I don’t think I’ve read 6 classics in the last 6 years let alone 6 months!

  2. Your six most enjoyed books reminds me of how long The Fault in Our Stars has been on my kindle… unread!! I’m glad you decided to play along, Stacy 🙂

  3. These are fun to look at. I’m afraid my list would be different aspects of mysteries though and might not be very interesting. I could join in as a ‘classics’ reader if we only included Agatha Christie. LOL

  4. I read Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry for my Children’s Literature course last year and it was one of those heartbreaking books which I couldn’t put down. We studied it looking (in part) at race in children’s books and the other book we studied at the same time, The Other Side of Truth by Beverley Naidoo is well worth a look as well (it looks at child refugees in Britain and attitudes towards them).

  5. What fun! I’ve read three of your top six: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, The Reader, and The Fault in our Stars, all three of which I liked.

    I really must look into getting a copy of As You Wish:Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Carey Elwes in audio.
