#TBRChallengeRBR Checkpoint 8


Well, here we are at the eighth TBR Challenge checkpoint.

I continue to be one book behind in this challenge, but I was able to knock out A Time to Kill by John Grisham in August. I still can’t believe that I had never read this book before. I really, really enjoyed it and highly recommend it to everyone. I am so glad that I read it; especially at a time when we have had a lot of unrest in the Midwest because of race issues. Definitely a timeless classic book in my opinion.

I’m not sure where I’ll head next with my list for this challenge. I have picked up The Dante Club and Relic a couple of times and set them both aside … I have a feeling I will need to use both of my alternates. Here’s what I’ve still got left to choose from, which one would you choose next!??!:

  1. The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl
  2. The Hunt for Atlantis by Andy McDermott
  3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
  4. Relic by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child
  5. Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult


  1. Mallory’s Oracle by Carol O’Connell
  2. McNally’s Secret by Lawrence Sanders
