Lisa's List and Intro

Hi all! I'm Lisa from Books. Lists. Life. I needed to join another challenge just as bad as some of the rest of you regulars, but this one looked so easy to fill in and I have no willpower. Here's my preliminary list-

  1. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry (Newbery 1990)
  2. Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D Taylor (Newbery 1977)
  3. Up A Road Slowly by Irene Hunt (Newbery 1967)
  4. A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine D'Engle (Newbery 1963)
  5. The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Spear (Newbery 1960)
  6. The Optimist's Daughter by Eudora Welty (Pulitzer 1973)
  7. Bel Canto by Ann Patchett (Orange Prize 2002)(PEN/Faulker 2002)
  8. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood (Governor General's Award 1985)
  9. Possession: A Romance by A. S. Byatt (Man Booker 1990) (not on any other challenge, but on my shelves)
  10. Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides (Pulitzer 2003) (ditto)
  11. The Road - Cormac McCarthy (Pulitzer 2007) (not on another challenge, but feels like something I should read.)
  12. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by JK Rowling (British Book Award 2006)
Ok, there's my first 12. I've only added 3 that aren't already on another challenge.


    You MUST read The Handmaid's Tale. Scary!
