Aside from my goal to read *at least* 75 books this year, I have also decided to enter into a couple other challenges along the way.
From January 1 through December 31, 2009, read at least 10 chick lit books. Books can overlap with other challenges and you can change your list at any time.
I found this to be a somewhat hard list to compile. I don’t really read a lot of chick-lit, so I had to do some research and revamp my list a little bit.
*Dates: January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009
*The Challenge: Choose one book from each of the following categories:
A book with a “profession” in its title. Examples might include: The Book Thief, The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Historian
My pick: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
A book with a “time of day” in its title. Examples might include: Twilight, Four Past Midnight, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
My pick: The House at Midnight by Lucie Whitehouse
A book with a “relative” in its title. Examples might include: Eight Cousins, My Father’s Dragon, The Daughter of Time
My pick: Sisters of Misery by Megan Kelley Hall
A book with a “body part” in its title. Examples might include: The Bluest Eye, Bag of Bones, The Heart of Darkness
My pick: Blink of an Eye by Ted Dekker
A book with a “building” in its title. Examples might include: Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Little House on the Prairie, The Looming Tower
My pick: Castle Dor by Daphne Du Maurier
A book with a “medical condition” in its title. Examples might include: Insomnia, Coma, The Plague
My pick: Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin
*You may overlap books with other challenges, but please don’t use the same book for more than one category.
