jill at the magic lasso is once again hosting an Orange July after the very successful Orange January. The idea is to read books nominated for the Orange Prize. Over at the Orange Prize Project you can find a list of books that have won, or been nominated. You can also join up over there and keep track of your progress. For Orange July, you can set your own goal and decide what books you want to read. I've got a few books I've been wanting to read:
- Fingersmith - Sarah Waters (shortlist 2002)
- The Lizard Cage - Karen Connolly (winner 2007 - new author)
- American Wife, - Curtis Sittenfeld (longlist 2009)
- I Was Amelia Earhart - Jane Mendelsohn (shortlist 1997)
maybe for Orange January:
- Poppy Shakespeare - Clare Allen (longlist 2007)
Whether I read them all in July remains to be see. I'd like to read two of them in July. Thanks for hosting this fun challenge, Jill!
