Book Challenge by Erin January 2017

Books! Beautiful books!

It’s Book Challenge by Erin time again!

I’m excited about the categories and really jazzed about my choices this time! I even found a couple of books for the challenge round (assuming I make it). Ha! Last time I came really close to completing the challenge round–just off by two books, I think.

5 points: Freebie – Read a book that is at least 200 pages.

Frannie and True by Karen Hattrup

10 points: Read a book that starts with the letter “W”.

When We Were Sisters by Emilie Richards

10 points: Read a book with six words in the title.

The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen

15 points: Read a book that has a (mostly) green cover.

A Grown-up Kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson

20 points: Read a book with a homonym in the title.

The Burning Air by Erin Kelly

[I’m a purist when it comes to homonyms. I cotton (see what I did there?) to the primary definition of homonym–sound and spelling the same; meaning different. So…Air = atmosphere + personal bearing]

20 points: Read a book by your favorite author.

The River King by Alice Hoffman

[This was hard as I have many favorite authors. I chose among Alice Hoffman, Kate Atkinson, and Laura Lippman.]

25 points: Read a book set in the city/town/state/territory/county/province where you live.

The Mistress of Spices by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

30 points: Read a “Rory Gilmore” book.

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

[I loved looking at the Rory Gilmore titles and was even actually a little bit impressed with myself about how many I had read.]

30 points: Read a book from a genre that you’ve never read (or rarely read.)

The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson

[I almost never read SciFi though there have been a few in this genre I’ve loved like Love Minus Eighty. I’m a little worried about this choice since it’s 500+ pages]

35 points: Read a book with time travel.

Time and Again by Jack Finney

So, there you have my selections. What do you think? Have you read any of these? Don’t forget…there’s still time to enter Erin’s Reading Challenge. Just click here to get started and join the fun!
