Book Awards Reading Challenge

The BookDepository

To try to find more great authors, I’ve decide to take part in the ‘Book awards reading challenge’

 

Rules:

Read 10 award winners from August 1, 2008 through June 1, 2009.

You must have at least FIVE different awards in your ten titles.

 

The first 6 books I’m going to read are:

1.       The Blind Assassin – Margaret Atwood (Winner of Booker Prize, 2000) completed 29th October 2008

2.      Out Stealing Horses – Per Petterson (Winner of IMPAC Dublin Prize, 2007) completed 20th November 2008

 3.    The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay – Micheal Chabon (Winner of Pulitzer Prize, 2001) completed 27th November 2008

4.      The Fingersmith – Sarah Waters (Winner of the CWA Ellis Peters Dagger for Historical Crime Fiction) completed 14th December 2008

5.      We Need to Talk About Kevin – Lionel Shriver  (Winner of Orange Prize, 2005) completed 14th January 2009

6.     Blindness – Jose Saramago (Nobel Prize, 1998) completed 5th March 2009

7.     Half of a Yellow Sun – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Winner of Orange Prize, 2007)

8.     The Secret River – Kate Grenville (Winner of Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, 2006) 

9.     Theory of War – John Brady (Winner of Costa/Whitbread Award, 1993) 

10.   Peace Like a River – Leif Enger (Alex Award, 2002) 

I’ll do a bit more research into other prizes, and come up with the remaining book soon.
