The Jodi Picoult Project



In October, I created a new reading challenge, The Jodi Picoult Project,  because I realized that a challenge would entice me to read more of her books, which focus on contemporary issues.  I read My Sister's Keeper in 2009, and recently finished reading The Pact, and I plan on reading two more books by this prolific author, maybe more.  If you'd like to join this challenge as well, commit to reading at least one novel by Jodi Picoult.




This reading challenge will run from October 2011 through October 2012.  Feel free to "grab" the button and use it on your own blog.  After you've posted a review, please enter a direct link to it into the Mister Linky.  Stay tuned for upcoming giveaways for novels by Jodi Picoult!  Comments welcomed.

Update, 12/27/2012:  I've changed the Mister Linky to a different type.  Please feel free to add any "lost" or additional links to your review posts.  Thanks!

  7. Welcome Suko, I promised to myself last year to read 10 of her books and I, better or worse, finished myself agonizing challenge. This year, I want to finish her works and I can't wait for her upcoming wolf-related book.

  10. Hi, I'd love to join the challenge if its only one book. I read a lot but am usually too lazy to write a review and I've already read a number of Jodi Picoult's books including My Sister's Keeper, Nineteen Minutes and a few others.

  13. It took a while for the author to reveal what actually happened the night of the suicide, but I really enjoyed reading while the plot unfolded. The characters were strong, and the plot was frighteningly realistic.

  22. It looks like I arrived too late for the challenge/project. Too bad -- it seems like it was a good one. I just read my first Picoult book this month (January, 2013). I read My Sister's Keeper and really enjoyed it. On the heels of that, I read The Pact. I was a bit disappointed in that one, but perhaps that is simply because I had just read My Sister's Keeper. I usually need a little bit of space between books because, if a book is good, the characters stay with me for awhile. It was probably too soon for me to move on. :) I think Picoult is a talented author with engaging stories, though, so I plan to read more.

    1. My Sister's Keeper was my first Jodi Picoult book, too. After reading it, I took a long break until I read another novel by this prolific author. My reading challenge pushed me to read other books by her.

      Tanya, thank you so much for your comment. I will accept "late" review links for this reading challenge, and I may well host a second JP challenge in the future.
