Here are the details of the challenge run by Maggie Reads. If you wish to join in to put add your link to the post at Maggie Reads.
You may choose to read any style of Southern book such as Appalachian tales, Civil War sagas, Gothic myths, Grit lit, and heart-wrenching biographies. You need to read three books and they can be fiction or non fiction. The challenge starts on May 15th and runs through to August 15th. So I aim to read one a month.
Here are my choices for the challenge.
1) The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
2) Mudbound by Hilary Jordan
3) The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards
I am also interested in reading Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier and The Help by Kathryn Stockett, so I might look out for these two books to add to my ever growing collection.
