CHALLENGE: The Four Month Challenge Part Two

    The Four Month Challenge Part Two
    Hosted by Virginie Barbeau

    So I've decided to go ahead and join in on this challenge, even though I'm sure I'll suck at it! :) I'm just such a slow reader that I don't do too well with most challenges. Too many books to read, and too little time!

    But I'm giving it a shot. Since this is on a point system, I am not committing to reading a certain number of books-- I'm simply trying to get the highest score I can. I can handle that.

    Virginie says that it would be great for people to post weekly updates regarding how the challenge is going, and how many points they acquired that week, but I think I'll shoot for monthly updates. I don't expect to be able to read enough to have an "exciting" weekly update. Here are the point challenges. I'm not sure about all the books yet, but I've but my current ideas in parentheses on each challenge:

    5 Point Challenges

    Read a book with a proper name in the title (Simon's Cat)

    Read a book about a queen or king (The Last Queen or The Secret Bride)

    Read a book by a Bronte (Jane Eyre)

    Read a book about Vampires (Twilight)

    Read a book by V.C. Andrews (probably Flowers in the Attic, as I haven't read it in so many years and loved it when I was a kid)

    10 Point Challenges

    Read a book by Canadian author (The Brutal Telling)

    Read a book by Charles Dickens (A Christmas Carol)

    Read a book set in France (French Kiss)

    Read a book by Georgette Heyer (Cousin Kate)

    Read an ‘art’ themed book

    15 Point Challenges

    Read a book with a Civil War theme (any country)

    Read a book with characters inspired by King Arthur or about King Arthur/Camelot (maybe The Crystal Cave)

    Read a biography/autobiography (Thinking in Pictures)

    Read a book related to or something by Shakespeare (My Name is Will)

    Read a book by an author born in November, December, January or February

    20 Point Challenges

    Read a book with a wintry theme (Christmas, snow, ice, freezing etc.) (The Shack)

    Read a book that was a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction (The Road)

    Read a book that begins with A and one that begins with Z (All of Me, ?)

    Read a book from The Modern Library Top 100

    Read a book and then write a review
