10 out of 100 out of 1000 Books YMRBYD Challenge

Since as I stated in an earlier post reading all of the books on the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list that has been created by Peter Boxall is a personal goal of mine, when I saw another challenge centered around this specific list I jumped at the chance to join. The rules were a little different from the previous challenge I've joined, but that just means if I complete both challenges I'll be able to check even more books off the 1001 list! WooHoo! Here is my list for the challenge:

1-10. The Sea by John Banville (#6)
11-20. The Lambs of London by Peter Ackroyd (#11)
21-30. Fingersmith by Sarah Waters (#24)
31-40. Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides (#33)
41-50. Life of Pi by Yan Martel (#49)
51-60. City of God by E.L. Doctorow (#60)
61-70. The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood (#63)
71-80. Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee (#77)
81-90. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingslover (#86)
91-100. Underworld by Don DeLillo (#96)
