For one of the reading challenges in which I participate, a needed category is “days of the week in a challenge”. As I checked for books, I found there were many books for each of the weekdays.
Here are 5 books – from Monday to Friday. (I’ve only read Tuesdays with Morrie) Reviews by Goodreads.
Rewriting Monday by Jodi Thomas
“Reporter Pepper Malone moved to Bailey, Texas, after a news story nearly got her killed. Now she wants to be left alone to do her job in relative peace and quiet. But when the newspaper’s staff is targeted by a madman with a grudge against the media, Pepper is drawn back into the public eye—and into the arms of the paper’s handsome owner.”
Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom
“He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man’s life. Knowing he was dying of ALS – or motor neurone disease – Mitch visited Morrie in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final ‘class’: lessons in how to live.”
The Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt
“The Wednesday Wars is a wonderfully witty and compelling story about a teenage boy’s mishaps and adventures over the course of the 1967–68 school year in Long Island, New York.”
Thursdaya at Eight by Debbie Macomber
“Claire, Elizabeth, Karen, and Julia meet every Thursday for breakfast to share the events that are happening in their lives, from a painful divorce to an unexpected pregnancy, and to offer each other undying support, love, and encouragement.”
Friday Night Lights by A.G. Bessinger
“every Friday night from September to December, when the Permian High School Panthers play football, this West Texas town becomes a place where dreams can come true. With frankness and compassion, Bissinger chronicles one of the Panthers’ dramatic seasons and shows how single-minded devotion to the team shapes the community and inspires-and sometimes shatters-the teenagers who wear the Panthers’ uniforms.”
