If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know I host a Reading Lately linkup the last Friday of every month. You might also know that I absolutely love participating in Erin of TexErin in Sydneyland’s Book Challenges. The Facebook group is a great place to browse reviews on books and discuss them with other people in the group. It’s also fun to pick out the books for the challenge, I sometimes have to step out of my normal genres and read books I wouldn’t normally pick up. I add so many books to my “to read” list doing this.
Here is my list for the Book Challenge as well as the categories in case you decide to join!
5 points: Freebie – read a book that is at least 200 pages
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – read my review here
10 points: Read a book that starts with the letter “W”
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
10 points: Read a book with six words in the title
We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
15 points: Read a book that has a (mostly) green cover
Abandon by Blake Crouch – read my review here
20 points: Read a book with a homonym in the title – Helpful link HERE
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult c/o NetGalley – read my review here
Homonym – great/grate – at first I thought this meant the book needed to have a homonym in the title, not just a word that is a homonym!
20 points: Read a book by your favorite author
Sycamore Row by John Grisham
This is the book after A Time to Kill, another one of my favorites that I read during a previous book challenge (read my review of it here – spoiler, I loved it!), so I had to read the next book!
25 points: Read a book set in the city/town/state/territory/county/etc where you live
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover – based in San Francisco, California
30 points: Read a “Rory Gilmore” book – The character of Rory from the Gilmore Girls was shown reading over 300 different books throughout the series. Choose one of them from this helpful link HERE
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Since I meant to read this last book challenge – oops! Plus I have to read it for school in the spring 🙂
30 points: Read a book from a genre that you’ve never read (or rarely read)
The Fellowship of the Ring by JRR Tolkien – read my review here
I’ve never had any interest in the Lord of the Rings series, books or movies. I don’t know why, but I’ve just never wanted to watch them. So I felt this was perfect for this category!
35 points: Read a book with time travel – helpful link HERE
Lightning by Dean Koontz
One of my all time favorite books is The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, but I thought I’d read something new 🙂
And that’s all for my list! Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and what you thought of them. No spoilers though please 🙂 I hope you decide to join the book challenge, and don’t forget to follow me on GoodReads!
I like that you have a mix of genres represented with your picks. I try to do that as well. Happy reading!!
