Something About Me Challenge

I've chosen my books to read for the Something About Me Challenge
It was really hard choosing!

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (Alyson's) This is a book I've wanted to read for a while now. I've not seen the movie, so I'm not sure what to expect?

To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee (Janet's) I tried to read this a couple of years ago, but gave up. I wasn't enjoying it but have decided to give this another go. I've been known to hate books and then like them when I re-read them.

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova (from a few peoples lists) This is a book which has had mixed reviews, I'm kind of worried about reading this as some people say it's hard going. But I like Historical and Vampire novels so I'm going to try this one.

Anne Frank: Diary of a young girl (Pattie's) This book I've always wanted to read, I heard much about it due to history in the news etc. I'd be honoured to read this book by such a brave and inspiring little girl.

I, Elizabeth by Rosalind Miles (Soleil's) I've chosen this one because I love historical novels and anything to do with the Tudors.

Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz (JMC's) This book has some good reviews on Amazon. I've never tried anything from this author, so have decided to give it ago.

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith (Becky's) This is a book I've seen recommended on some blogs, so this is why I chose this book. I like the title of this book.

I picked To Kill a Mockingbird as well, I hope we both enjoy it!

I really love To Kill a Mockingbird although it did take me a little bit to get into it.

I hope I like it a second time. For some reason, that seems to be the way with me.
