Winter Reading Challenge

I am participating in Megan from Semi-Charmed Kind of Life’s winter reading challenge running from November 01 through January 31.

The categories of books are diverse and I am trying to get through each of them if I can. I even challenged my friends Rachel & Heather to do the challenge with me!

  • Read a book that has between 100 and 200 pages.
    • Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.
  • Read a debut book by any author. (The book does not have to be a 2015 debut.)
    • Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham.
  • Read a book that does not take place in your current country of residence.
    • All the Light We Cannot See, Anthony Doerr.
  • Read a book published under a pseudonym.
    • Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith.
  • Read a book with “boy,” “girl,” “man” or “woman” in the title (or the plural of these words).
    • The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins.
  • Read a book with a one-word title.
    • Thunderstruck, Erik Larson.
  • Read a book with a person’s first and last name in the title.
    • Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Irin Carmon.
  • Read a food-themed book.
    • Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist.
  • Read a book with a verb in the title.
    • Travels with Charley: In Search of America, John Steinbeck.
  • Read two books with the same title (by different authors).
    • The Witches by Roald Dahl.
    • The Witches: Salem, 1692 by Stacy Schiff.
  • Read a nonfiction book and a fiction book about the same subject (e.g. a biography and historical fiction novel about the same person; two books about a specific war or event; a nonfiction book about autism and a novel with a character who has autism, etc. The possibilities are endless!).
