Book Challenge by Erin 4.0 Book choices

We had a pretty low key weekend, and the girls were pretty tired and grumpy by the end of it so I took them outside yesterday afternoon and they were happy for an hour 🙂 We still have a bit of a dry cough going on, and I am focusing a lot on cleaning the house and purging things, which is unfortunately not very fun or condusive to having fun as a kid 🙂 That being said – we have some fun things coming up for them, so I don’t feel too bad spending time organizing the house!!

I wanted to check in today and share my picks for Erin’s Book Challenge:

·         5 points:  Read a book, any book that is at least 200 pages long. TBD – this will just be an extra book that I read during the challenge time 🙂

·         10 points:  Read a book that begins with the letter “D”.   DUMPLIN’ by Julie Murphy (already started this one on the weekend – loving it so far)

·         10 points:  Read a book with a four word title. ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES by Jennifer Niven

·         15 points:  Read a book with one of the following words in the title: “mother(s)”, “father(s)”, “son(s)”, “daughter(s)”, or “child(ren)”. THE MOTHER DAUGHTER BOOK CLUB by Heather Vogel Frederick

·         20 points:  Amazon ranks their “most popular authors”, and they update this list hourly.  Based on when you make your book list, look at the top 100 authors, and pick a book to read from one of those authors, but here’s the catch – it needs to be an author new to you…one of the most popular authors, yet you’ve never read them before. As of today, KRISTIN HANNAH or TRACY BROGAN or VINCE FLYNN, This will probably end up being THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah if I get it from the library in time.

·         20 points:  Read a book set in any country in Asia. THE KITE RUNNER by Khaled Hosseini 

·         25 points:  Read a book with a “Season” in the title.  (I start the challenge in Summer and end in Autumn; many of you start in Winter and end in Spring…so the title of your book should have Summer, Autumn/Fall, Winter, or Spring in the title.) WINTER GARDEN by Kristin Hannah

·         30 points:  Read a book that will make you laugh from the list attached. (submitted by Bernadette) BRIDGET JONES DIARY by Helen Fielding

·         30 points:  Read a book that is a friend or family member’s favorite book (or the favorite book of another participant from this challenge).  (submitted by Peggy) PERSUASION by Jane Austen which is many friends’ favourite book but recommended especially by one of my friends from home and most likely also of Kristen’s favourite books?? 🙂

·         35 points:  Read a book published the year you were born. (submitted by Meredith) ENDERS GAME (year: 1985) by Orson Scott Card
