May's Reading Challenge ~ You May, But Should You?
1 ~ book with a character who does something wild
Altered / Jennifer Rush ~ 5/3/15
Anna breaks out of the lab below the farmhouse where she lives with the four genetically-altered boys her father was monitoring and treating. I think it would be fair to say that was doing something wild!
I loved this book and the second in the series (you'll see it in #4). I didn't read the final book, as I read some reviews that led me to believe it would not be as good as the first two. I've had that happen all too often, so I decided to stop reading while I still had a good feeling about the series.
2 ~ book with a character who does something you've always wanted to do, but haven't.

Where the Lost Aprils Are / Elisabeth Ogilvie ~ 5/16/15


Miriam takes a vacation in a small town in Maine to try to find links to her mother. I've always wanted to visit the east coast of the US and someday I plan to do it. I'll skip the drama in this book, though.

3 ~
book with a character who dares to be different

Freddy the Detective / Walter R. Brooks ~ 5/4/15  


A pig who turns detective? I'd say that qualifies as different!


I'd never heard of the Freddy the Pig series until someone mentioned it on an Amazon discussion. It's written for children, but don't let that stop you from enjoying these books. I've read the first two I could find (#3 and 4 in the series) and they are delightful. I've got #5 ready to start soon.

4 ~ book with a character who defies orders


Erased / Jennifer Rush ~ 5/9/15


As we saw in #1, Anna is not a character who spends her time on the straight and narrow. It's an exciting book with great characters.
