Good morning friends! It’s now February and that means time for the bonus round of Erin’s challenge! The rules are basically the same as for the first challenge (one book per category, all books must be 200+ pages) with the addition that 5 of the books must have been previously chosen by another participant. You also get 5 extra points for each book you read that was previously chosen. And now, here is my list – with a few gaps that I have yet to fill.
10 points: Freebie –TBD
15 points: Book that starts with the letter “L” – TBD
15 points: Book with a (mostly) red cover – Us by David Nicholls (hopefully – have ordered it so I’ll see if it shows up with a red cover!)
20 points: Read a book with a character’s name in the title – TBD -> I have about four unread books with character names in the title but were any of them previously chosen for this challenge? Of course not!
25 points: Read a book from this list: Book Riot’s 100 Must-Read Books with Plot Twists – We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
25 points: Read a book with the words “house” or “home” in the title – Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
30 points: Read a book by an author whose first and last name begins with the same letter – Hollow City by Ransom Riggs (book 2 of the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Pecuilar Children series)
35 points: Read a book that was originally published in a different language than your own – The Forgotten Girls by Sara Blaedel
35 points: Read a book where most of the action takes place on a form of transportation – Master and Commander by Patrick O’Brien (mode of transport: ship – this is apparently book 1 in a 20 book series. What?!)
40 points: Read a book with a character that suffers from a debilitating physical illness – Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
So, those are the books I shall be reading in February… once I’ve finished The Alchemist, which I started last night. Have you read any of these? What did you think?
