It has been so long since I finished this challenge and yet I love it so! I know that I very late signing up, but I am still going to try. Maybe a new host will help me complete the challenge.
The challenge runs from January to December. During this time you choose a book to read from each of the following categories (examples of books you could choose are in brackets):
- A reference to time (Eleven Minutes, Before Ever After): Some Assembly Required: A Journal of My Son's First Son by Anne Lamott. I finished this book in January. My review can be found here.
- A position of royalty (The People’s Queen, The Last Empress, The Curse Of The Pharaoh)
- A number written in letters (The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, A Tale Of Two Cities): The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais I finished the book on April 15, 2014. You can find my review here.
- A forename or names (Rebecca, Eleanor & Park, The Unfinished Work Of Elizabeth D.)The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller I finished the book on October 16, 2014. You can find my review here.
- A type or element of weather (Gone With The Wind, Red Earth Pouring Rain): We are Water by Wally Lamb: completed on March 7, 2014. You can find my review here
- Books can be any format (print, audio, ebook).
- It’s preferred that the books don’t overlap with other challenges, but not a requirement at all.
- Books cannot overlap categories (for instance my first example, Eleven Minutes, could be used for category 1 or 3 but not both).
- Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed, it’s encouraged!
- You don’t have to make your list of books beforehand, you can choose them as you go.
- You don’t have to read your chosen books in any particular order.
