The Connect 5 reading challenge hosted at “The Book Date” urges us to connect five books in some way.
I’ve had a busy month of reading again, with many good books read. As I looked back over the month, I realized I had completed several Connect 5 sets of books. (I usually include a book cover picture, but with so many books this time I will just include my favourite from each set)
I love books that focus on sisters and the dynamics between them. Here are 5 great books, by favourite authors:
The Summer of Sunshine and Margot by Susan Mallery
The Goodbye Café by Mariah Stewart
Sisters Like Us by Susan Mallery
How to Keep a Secret by Sarah Morgan
The Lemon Sisters by Jill Shalvis
Jane Austen Retellings
I had never read Jane Austen before this year, when I set a goal to read all of her books and as many retellings as I could. I have read only 2 of her books so far, but several retellings.
Here are 5 retellings I enjoyed:
Pride, Prejudice and Other Flavors by Sonali Dev
The Jane Austen Marriage Manual by Kim Izzo
Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laura Viera Rigler
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld
Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson
Verbs in the Title
I was surprised at how many books I read that had verbs in the title. Most of Patricia Briggs titles have verbs but I had used most in other Connect 5 posts.
Here are 5 books with verbs used in their title:
Blended by Sharon M. Draper (A diverse MG novel)
2 paranormal books by Patricia Briggs:
Tangled Up in You by Samantha Chase (A contemporary romance)
How We Disappeared by Jing-Jing Lee (Diverse historical fiction)
Still lots of time to join in the fun of this challenge. What 5 books could you connect?
