Chances are you know how this works… If not, Erin has the rules and details over on her page. The challenge goes from January 1st to April 30th, 2017. (Whoa… “2017”… That’s weird to type…)
Here are my picks:
| 10 points | Starts with the letter “W”: Winter by Marissa Meyer *
| 10 points | Six words in the title: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
| 15 points | Has a (mostly) green cover: The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis
| 20 points | A homonym in the title: The One by Kiera Cass *
| 20 points | By your favorite author: Heartless by Marissa Meyer *
| 25 points | Set in the city/town/state/territory/county/province where you live: The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier
| 30 points | A “Rory Gilmore” book: Atonement by Ian McEwan
| 30 points | From a genre that you’ve never read/rarely read (*thriller*): The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
| 35 points | With time travel: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle (or Outlander if I get adventurous)
* Right now I’m participating in the Semi-Charmed Winter 2016 Book Challenge but that ends January 31st. Three of my books for Erin’s challenge repeat from that list but Winter is 800+ pages so I doubt I’ll read much more than that in January.
I really am so grateful that Erin hosts this challenge. She’s the most gracious host and doesn’t pressure anyone to finish or even join. She’s encouraging and attentive, and she interacts with you the entire time! Her challenges always have fun categories and they remind me to switch off the TV and read. If you’re looking for a fun way to ease (back) into reading then I recommend this challenge. You can change your book choices, too, so you’re not forced to read something you end up hating!
Please join us!
*Off topic: The word “homonym” reminds me of Britney Spears’ I’m a Slave 4 U because I swear she says “Because a homonym my name.” Hahahahaha! (It’s actually “Leave behind my name and age?” but I had to look that up and I’m still not a believer.)
