Genre Challenge Update

I haven't been potsing very much lately...but that doesn't mean I haven't been reading! I've been keeping true to my word and doing a genre challenge. So far I've posted about reading a Romance and a Mystery. I've also tackled the genres of Romantic Suspense, Women's Lives & Relationships (2), Horror, and a Legal Thriller. So far nothing has been extremely wonderful. My favorites were from the Women's Lives & Relationships genre, a Barbara Delinsky novel and one by Debbie Macomber. I really enjoyed the Barbara Delinksy one. The Debbie Macomber was twofold- for my genre challenge and for my knitting book discussion group that I run at the library.

I really enjoyed reading Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. I listened to it on audio. It was read by Gary Sinese, and he does a fantastic job. I highly recommended it. I also really liked listening to the audio version of A Raisin in the Sun.

This week I will be attending the American Library Association conference in Washington, D.C., so I will have plenty to write about!
