Sisters Book Challenge

Inspired by The Quirky Bookworm's BFF Book Challenge,  my sister and I are having our own book challenge this year.  It's low-key and low-pressure.  This is how it works:

I choose 10 books for her.  She chooses 10 books for me. 
We each pick at least five from the list to read and blog about sometime in 2013. 

Here's Kati's list for me:

Crooked House by Agatha Christie, The Wind in the Willowsby Kenneth Grahame, The Scarlet Pimpernelby Baroness Orczy, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot, Calico Bush by Rachel Field,  Bride of Thistleloch Castleby Therese Stenzel, The Centurion's Wifeby Davis Bunn and Janette Oke,  Maid to Matchby Deeanne Gist,  Mr. Darcy's Diaryby Amanda Grange

Here's my list for her:

The Secret Keeperby Kate Morton, Peter Panby J. M. Barrie, Keep a Quiet Heartby Elisabeth Elliot, Wonderland Creekby Lynn Austin, Holesby Louis Sachar, Charlie and the Chocolate Factoryby Roald Dahl, Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo,  The Air We Breatheby Christa Parrish,  Thr3eby Ted Dekker and How Not to Dieby Dr. Jan Garavaglia

I was slightly OCD about gathering a varied list (male and female authors, nonfiction and fiction, Christian and not, adult and children's literature), plus attempting to find books she'd not read! 

It's going to be hard to stop at only five of her choices because quite a few intrigue me.  I may need to revisit my book list  and re-evaluate my reading plan for this year. 

While we're not asking anyone to commit to joining us, we'd love to hear if any of these books are on your reading list for this year...or if you've already read any of them. 


  1. What a fun challenge!

    I've chosen 13 books to read this year, although I've already added 3 more to the original list.

    So far I've finished The Treasure Principle: Unlocking the Secret to Joyful Giving by Randy Alcorn (here's my review) and Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis (I'll be sharing my review soon). Both were very good!

    Right now I'm reading Love Does by Bob Goff. His life is very inspiring! So far I've really enjoyed it.

  2. I got Holes from the e-library and I'm going to start it as soon as I finish the Lynn Austin book I'm currently reading.

  3. What a fantastically fun idea! Love The Scarlet Pimpernel.

    I just finished the Secret Keeper thanks to your recommendation. Ahhhhh! That's all I can say. :) So good.

  4. Oh, and has an audio reading of The Wind in the Willows. The man who read even does all the voices :) So far, the kids (especially Emahry) are really enjoying it.
