I've been following a lot of book bloggers recently. I'm always trying to find something to push the boundaries a little bit. I came across Semi-Charmed's Book Challenge. I'm so in !
The rules are pretty simple. The challenge will last from November 1, 2014 through February 28, 2015. Each book must be at least 200 pages, and a book can only be used in one catagory. There can only be 3 rereads, so most of these books will be new.
Without further ado, here are the books I'll be reading in the coming months:
Freebie ~ I'm thinking its going to be Neil Patrick Harris's new book, Choose your own Autobiography. He cracks me up to no end !
Read a book written by an author that has published at least 10 books ~ Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz
Read a book of short stories ~ How They Met, and Other Stories by David Levithan
Read a book with food in the title ~ Eat Cake by Jeanne Ray
Read the first book in a series that is new to you ~ The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
Read a book that was originally written in a language that is not your native language ~ The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux (originally printed in French)
Read a book written by a local author ~ The Road by Cormac McCarthy (He went to school in Knoxville, TN)
Read a "bookish book" ~ What We See When We Read by Peter Mendelsund (This actually came in my Quarterly box which I LOVE btdubs)
Read a book with a direction in the title ~ Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire
Read a book from a genre you don't usually read ~ The only genre I really don't like is historic fiction, so it will be something from that. I might get my grandma's help on this one.
Read a book with a song lyric in the title ~ Dear John by Nicholas Sparks (Dear John by Taylor Swift
Read two books with a different meal in each title ~ The Girls Guide to Love and Supper Clubs by Dana Bate and .... Gah ! I don't know yet ! I'll end up going to the book store and just looking at titles until I find something :)
I'm super excited ! I haven't read any of these yet, so I'll try to post a couple reviews.
