Truth in Fiction Challenge 2012
January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012
Hosted by Fig and Thistle
Fig and Thistle is a new blog to me but I like the sound of this challenge – it will be truly challenging and that’s the fun of it! I encourage you to try this one too.
The general goal is to read book pairs – one fiction and one non-fiction about a related topic. An idea could be Dear Companion: The Inner Life of Martha Jefferson by Kelly Joyce Neff (Fiction) and The Women Jefferson Loved by Virginia Scharff (Non-Fiction). The challenge says to think outside the box. You should then create a post connecting the two books in some way.
I’m going to shoot for the Sophmore (2 Pairs). This could get interesting...
I will show my progress below:
a. Days of Splendor, Days of Sorrow by Juliet Grey (Fiction - the life of Marie Antoinette)
b. Marie Therese: Child of Terror by Susan Nagel (Non-Fiction - the life of Marie Therese, child of Marie Antoinette)
a. The Lincoln Conspiracy by Timothy L. O'Brien (Fiction)
b. Lincoln by David Herbert Donald (Non-Fiction)
