Thanks for joining the challenge! Looks like you've got plenty to read between the challenges you're a part of. :) I have to admit, I hadn't heard of several of the books on your spring list -- I'll have to check them out. Enjoy your books!

The Giver is/was a banned book? Huh. I reread it a few days ago. (I'd forgotten I'd read it until I got into it a little ways.)

I've read both The Giver and Amos Fortune Free Man. They are both excellent. Good luck on both of your challenges!

I liked Heart of Darkness, but have never met anyone else who has. It really makes you think.

I read The Handmaid's Tale earlier this year. Gave me goosebumps. I think it will be with me a while.
