I'm going to try not to dwell on the fact that Goodreads average number of books in the challenge is 55. Oy. Not this year.
Book One: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Book Two: Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman
Book Three: The White Queen by Phillipa Gregory
I love historical drama, and I loved Phillipa Gregory's Tudor series, but this one was a different beast. It was a lot more political and the story is repetitive (Oh, look. Edward is off to war again.). And every character was either named Elizabeth, Mary, Richard, Edward or George. It's super hard to keep track of twenty characters when they share the same five names. What also threw me was there was a certain mystery that was left completely unresolved, and it wasn't until I wikipedia'ed it after that it was indeed based on a true story, and the mystery was never solved. How depressing.
I'm realizing this list is are all movies or tv shows now, so while I was thinking my next few books will be Game of Thones, but maybe I should pick a few things that don't encourage me to turn on the tv to watch the story I just read.
Anyone have any good books they read lately? Anyone else in the Goodreads Challenge?
