Happy New Year everyone! The last time I attempted a book challenge, I was all kinds of pregnant and was focused more on How to Expect than anything else. Now that I’m back to long commutes and weekday lunches where I’m not holding a baby, it’s time to dive back into reading!
Here are the books I plan on reading for the Challenge:
5 points: Freebie – Read a book that is at least 200 pages: My Story by Elizabeth Smart
I know this book will probably be a toughie to get through, but I think that it’s so amazing that she went through all of that torment and came out the other side so strong.
10 points: Read a book that starts with the letter “L”–Lethal by Sandra Brown
This one seems creepy, and hopefully it won’t give me too many nightmares if I read it before bed.
10 points: Read a book that has a (mostly) red cover–Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman by Lindy West
After those first two books, I’m going to need something funny!
15 points: Read a book with a character’s name in the title)–The Book of Polly by Kathy Hepinstall
I’ve heard good things about this book, so I’m hoping that it lives up to the hype!
20 points: Read a book from this list: Book Riot’s 100 Must-Read Books with Plot Twists https://bookriot.com/2017/04/11/100-books-with-plot-twists/–Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson
EVERYONE has been raving about this book–I can’t wait to read it!
20 points: Read a book with the words “house” or “home” in the title–The Island House by Nancy Thayer
This seems like it’ll be a good beach read (and not just because the word “island” is in the title lol)
25 points: Read a book by an author whose first and last name begins with the same letter–Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker
As I look back at this list, it looks like I’m going to be seriously creeped out in the first third of 2018…
30 points: Read a book that was originally published in a different language than your own–Confessions by Kinae Minato
This book seems like it’s going to be so intriguing and really cleverly-written…I can’t wait!
30 points: Read a book where most of the action takes place on a form of transportation i.e. bus, boat, car, plane, etc.–Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
I want to read this before I see the movie with Leslie Odom, Jr. 😉
35 points: Read a book with a character that suffers from a debilitating physical illness–Cold Hands, Warm Heart by Jill Wolfson
I’m ready for all the tears with this one!
Have you read any of these books? Would you recommend different ones for any category?
