I made this list today, so I have a couple I really need to think on and do a little bit more research on. Those food/meals ones are so dang hard! (TWSS)
If you're new to the challenge, the skinny is that you have from November 1st to February 28th to finish all of the books on your list / in the categories and earn points.
If you're new to MY BLOG welcome!! I'm an avid reader of anything with Romance/Love in it - this is a MUST in any book for me. Chicklit, New Adult, some Young Adult, other works of fiction and you won't see much else around here. This challenge will really be a stretch for me especially with a different genre and another language. I'm an avid Goodreads user, so we should be friends!
5 points: Freebie! Read any book that fits the general rules.
This one will be whatever book I ended up "having" to read, lol.
10 points: Read a book written by an author who has published at least 10 books.
Lover at Last by JR Ward591 Pages
10 points: Read a book of short stories.
The Kiss: An Anthology of Love and Other Close Encounters350 Pages
10 points: Read a book with a food (not a drink!) in the title.
15 points: Read the first book in a series that is new to you (so no rereads for this one!).
Ten Tiny Breaths by KA Tucker
15 points: Read a book that was originally written in a language that is not your native language.
I'm consulting the interwebs for this and book blogger friends. Thanks to Brianna for this book, she had it on her list and it sounds really good! Plus they had it free at the library, so that's awesome!
The Twin by Gerbrand Bakker (originally written in Dutch)256 Pages
15 points: Read a book written by a local author (either an author from your state if you live in the United States, or in your country if you live somewhere else—note: author must be from where you currently live).
Frayed by Kim Karr304 Pages
20 points: Read a "bookish book" (in which books play an important role, e.g. the setting involves a bookstore or library, a major character is an author, or a book that celebrates reading and books. Examples: The Book Thief, The Shadow of the Wind, The Thirteenth Tale, etc.)
I need to read this before the next one comes out Dec. 2nd. It's a male librarian rawr!!
20 points: Read a book with a direction in the title (e.g. north, south, east, west or any combination of those).
True North by Marie Force
25 points: Read a book from a genre you don't usually read.
I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb897 Pages
25 points: Read a book with a song lyric in the title. Be sure to tell us the song name and artist as well!
All You Need is Love by Marie Force (song by The Beatles)
30 points: Read two books with a different meal in each title (e.g. breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper, brunch; update: meals like feast, banquet, picnic will also count, but try not to get too "creative" with your meal words!).
Let me tell you I've been looking through all of my Goodread friends TBR lists and have found absolutely nothing that works with this category!
Breakfast in Bed by Robin Kaye
The three or four categories with TBD are because I need to consult with friends to make sure I'm not stuck reading a book I won't like/be able to finish.
