Anyone Care for Seconds?

Joy over at Thoughts of Joy is hosting the 2nds Challenge. Have you read one book by an author that you liked enough to want to read a second book by that same author? This is your chance! Running from October through to the end of December, the 2nds Challenge asks participants to read 3 books by authors that you have only read one other book by. It's as simple as that.

My 2nds Challenge List:

Secondhand Smoke by Karen E. Olson(I have read Sacred Cows, rated 4) [read]

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson (I read Jacob, Have I Loved as a child) [read]

The Mysteries by Lisa Tuttle (I have read Silver Bough, rated: 3) [read]


A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini (I have read The Kite Runner)

Peony in Love by Lisa See (I have read Snow Flower and the Secret Fan)

I have not yet had a chance to put much thought into my choices for Kathrin's Series Challenge, but I thought I would at least make public my intention of joining that challenge. It is set to begin on December 1st and to carry on for a six month period. The goal is to pick up where I've left off in any number of the series I have already started and get caught up with them. With as many series as I am in the middle of or at least have gotten a start on, I will not even pretend that I will catch up on them all in the set time frame, but I will make a good start of it!


  1. I'm reading Hosseini's book for this challenge as well. I can't wait!

  2. Ahhh, I didn't know about Kathrin's Series Challenge. I'm introducing something a little different and don't necessarily expect a great turnout, but I need it for me! :) It won't conflict with Kathrin's, but I'll be sure to link it. Glad I read this before I posted mine.

  3. Laura - Oh good! I'll have someone I can talk with about it. :-)

    Joy - I'm planning on cutting back on challenges next year so can you stop coming up with such great ideas, please? Haha I definitely have enough firsts to join in . . .

  4. Hi Wendy! I'm so glad you joined! :D

    I have 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' in my pile too, and I can't wait to read your review.

    Just think, another week to go before the challenge begins! ;)

  5. Hi Wendy,

    I have read Lisa See's Snow Flower and the Secret Fan (love that book) and I've also got Peony in Love in my TBR.

    I'm reading The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini for my September's Unread Authors Challenge.

    Happy reading!

  6. Alice - Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is such a good book. I'm looking forward to her latest one.

    I hope you enjoy The Kite Runner. It's a fantastic book.

  7. I've got A Thousand Splendid Suns of my list for this challenge too. I liked The Kite Runner as well.

  8. BookGal - We'll have to compare notes! I'll also be keeping an eye out to see how you like Saturday. That's one I want to read too.
