Experimentation on Books

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.07.2008

Mimi over at Mimi's Pixie Corner AND Jenny over at AusJenny tagged me for a meme.
Update: I got tagged by Sharon Hinck, too! How many tags can I collect?

Here’s how it works. It was started by Becky Miller:

I’m going to list five MUST Read novels and five Keep Your Eyes on These novels, then tag five bloggers who I’m asking to post my list on their site. They may then add one book to each list but must also subtract one book. Finally they should tag five other bloggers, link here at A Christian Worldview of Fiction , and comment to this post so visitors here know to check out how they may have changed the list.

If you aren’t tagged but want to play, copy the 'how to' paragraph above, make your own list of MUST Reads and Keep Your Eyes on These, and tag away. It will be fun to see if we can generate some book wars … uh, I mean, discussions … good, healthy, respectful discussions!

Camy here: I actually cheated a bit because, well, it's MY blog. I substituted more than one book to each of the lists I got from Mimi and Jenny because they were heavy on SFF (naturally, since Becky Miller started this meme) and I tend more toward romance.

My five MUST Reads:

Demon: a Memoir by Tosca Lee (NavPress)
Scared To Death by Debby Giusti (Steeple Hill) This book just won the Inspirational category of the prestigious Daphne du Maurier contest
A Soldier's Family by Cheryl Wyatt (Steeple Hill)
The Restorer by Sharon Hinck (NavPress)
Sunset by Karen Kingsbury (Tyndale)

My five Keep Your Eyes On These:

Calico Canyon by Mary Connealy (Barbour)
The Falcon and the Sparrow by M.L. Tyndall (Barbour)
The Fruit of My Lipstick by Shelley Adina (FaithWords)
DragonLight by Donita Paul (Waterbrook)
Daring Chloe by Laura Jensen Walker (Zondervan)


Single Sashimi by Camy Tang (Zondervan)
Shade by John Olson (B&H)
Courting Miss Adelaide by Janet Dean (Steeple Hill)
A Passion Redeemed by Julie Lessman (Revell)
The Miracle Girls by Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt (FaithWords)

The bloggers I’m asking to post the lists (and make one book-for-book change to each list if they wish):

Janet Dean
Mary Connealy
Myra Johnson
Missy Tippens
Cheryl Wyatt


  1. Thanks Camy,
    Quite a few you mention I would have added also.
    I also tagged Cheryl will be interesting to see her list.

  2. Wahoo! Thanks for playing, Camy. :-D

  3. Cheater!! Actually, I like all of your choices, and I'm gonna go look up the ones I don't know. I was curious what it would take to broaden the whole of this experiment... See mine, I'm the one who tagged Mimi and was tagged by Becky, over at Creative Madness, cherryblossommj dot blogspot dot com

  4. Great list, Camy - what a shame it was only limited to 5 - LOL!!

  5. This totally rocks! Camy, thanks for joining in on the fun.

    Don't know if you ever played telephone as a kid. I had that concept in mind. Thought it would be fun to see how quickly the list morphed into something altogether other than what it started as.

    Heh heh heh, you've done a lot of help with the morphing.


  6. Thanks, lady!

    Also, can I just say how much I LOVE your new cover. LOVE it!

    Am buying now...

  7. Great job, Camy! Love your choices and how exciting that Single Sashimi is going to be out soon!! You rock, writer-girlfriend.

    Keep up the fantastic storytelling--we need great stories right now.
