So, I have decided to participate in
Here's How It Works (Taken straight from the site):
Between January 1 and December 31, 2011, read one book in each of the following categories:
A book with a number in the title: First to Die, Seven Up, Thirteen Reasons Why
A book with jewelry or a gem in the title: Diamond Ruby, Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Opal Deception
A book with a size in the title: Wide Sargasso Sea, Small Wars, Little Bee
A book with travel or movement in the title: Dead Witch Walking, Crawling with Zombies, Time Traveler's Wife
A book with evil in the title: Bad Marie, Fallen, Wicked Lovely
A book with a life stage in the title: No Country for Old Men, Brideshead Revisited, Bog Child
The book titles are just suggestions, you can read whatever book you want to fit the category.
Other Things to Know
Books may be any form (audio, print, e-book).
Books may overlap other challenges.
Books may not overlap categories; you need a different book for each category.
Creativity for matching the categories is not only allowed but encouraged.
You do not have to make a list of books before hand.
You do not have to read through the categories in any particular order.
Here are the titles I am tentatively thinking about reading:(Completley subject to change!!)
A book with a number in the title: The Tenth Song or The 19th Wife or
A book with jewelry or a gem in the title:
A book with a size in the title:
A book with travel or movement in the title: The Distant Hours or Under the Dome (is under a movement?)
A book with evil in the title: The Witching Hour or Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
A book with a life stage in the title: The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud or
Wish me luck, although this looks like so much fun!!
