Thru The Grapevine Challenge

In celebration of books that have been recommended to us, Lynne's Little Corner of the World is hosting a fun reading challenge.

The goal of this challenge is to read 3 new-to-you books between June 1 and November 30 that have been recommended to you. Any type of book is OK. It can even be a book by an author you've read before. Cross-overs with other challenges are fine, and you can change books at any time. And there will be a prize at the end of the challenge. You will need to sign up before June 1.

I haven't joined any new challenges for awhile because of the unwieldy number of challenges I had joined earlier. I feel like I'm doing quite well at crossing off books on those lists so I'm going to add this challenge. I have a bazillion books I've added to my TBR list that other bloggers, friends and family members have favorably reviewed - picking 3 should be a cinch.*

1. The Princess and the Hounded by Mette Ivie Harrison (recommended by Katie from Under the Covers)
2. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett (recommended by Framed from Framed and Booked )
3. Murphy's Law by Rhys Bowen (recommended by Lynne from Lynne's Little Corner of the World)

* What was I thinking - it was not easy choosing just 3 because there were too many that sounded good.

Well, I may just have to enter this one as well. What's another challenge among so many?? Besides the button is so cute.

I'm INCREDIBLY tempted, but I have so many challenges on my plate that I'm behind on already. Eeek! I'm lusting after this challenge, though. Hmmm, maybe my resolve will crumble.

This looks like a challenge I might be able to finish! Thanks for sharing, I'm going to go check it out.

I thought Good Omens was very funny.

It's a great idea for a challenge, I just never remember where I heard of book, to know who recommended it!

I don't know how you do it with all the challenges you join! I'm super-impressed you can complete them!!

This does sound like a fun one! I just have so many book recommendations from blogs, I don't know who I would narrow it down!
