COMPLETED: 2009 Colorful Reading Challenge

Yay! Woohoo! I did it! I finished my own challenge! I didn't think I would! I am so happy! I am using lots of exclamation points!

I finished the Colorful Reading Challenge and I am just, well, excited!

Here is what I read:

1. SILVER: The Scalpel and the Silver Bear: The First Navajo Woman Surgeon Combines Western Medicine and Traditional Healing by Lori Arviso (4 Stars)

2. BLUE: The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison (3.5 Stars)

3. GREEN: True Green Home: 10 Inspirational Ideas for Creating a Green Environment at Home by Kim McKay and Jenny Bonnin (4 Stars)

9. GOLD: Thousand Pieces of Gold by Ruthanne Lum McCunn (4.5 Stars)

I like the way Kerri from Book Ends broke her challenge reads down and I do like to emulate the fabulous when they are being truly fabulous.

I read 7 fiction books and 2 nonfiction books.

I read 2 Young Adult books and 4 literary novels.

I read 3 Banned Books.

I read 2 memoirs and 1 biographical novel.

I had 2 re-reads, which were, coincidentally, the two YA books.

I gave all the books 3.5 stars or higher rating. This challenge introduced me to some fantastic books.

I can't wait for the 2010 Colorful Reading Challenge! Have you joined yet?
