Global, British, Wishes


List 12 books you have been excited about, longer than 2013!
It might be surprising:  rather than read what I love (paranormal, gothic, mystery);  I strategize to get others out of the way.  With these, I have membership in a total of 40 themes!  The sooner I whittle down, the better.  Giving orders to entertain my soul with favourites, is the likeliest way for me to visit them any time soon.

When you’ve read your 12, leave a comment with a link to your final post about the challenge.
Make sure you do by January 15th, 2014.  There doesn’t seem to be a ‘linky’ to join.  I’ve asked the Netherlands hostess if there will be a review page.

 My goal is “Easy Challenge“:  7 x 1
One can go as high as the 7 continents x 3 novels.
Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North America, South America,
Seventh Continent (Antarctica or:  the sea, space, a supernatural world,
history, the future – you name it).
I’ll take a little time to brainstorm my continental targets.  Here are my ideas.

Canada:  “Mystery At Black Rock Island” Robert Sutherland  1983
France:  “The Little Prince”  Antoine De St. Exupéry  1943
Phillippines:  “The Secret Of Terror Castle”  Robert Arthur  1964
Africa:  Natasha Mostert “The Midnight Side”
Australia:  Kate Morton
South America:  Paul Coelho
Multiple countries:  Dorothy Gilman’s adventures.



This group has been in my queue awhile, to ascertain 12 British-born writers I intend to read.  The point of these wonderful forays is to tackle my own very good collection.  I don’t join anything I’m uncertain I’ll master.  I’m up for it, so here I go!
