My favorite challenge! This button will take you to the host blog, The Worm Hole.
Here are the categories (with hyperlinks back to host blog) and my possible choices:
The word ‘the’ used twice – From my Classics Club 50: The House of the Seven Gables by Nat Hawthorne.
A fruit or vegetable – I’m committing to Elaine Dundy‘s The Dud Avocado, also on my Classics Club 50.
A shape – SO EXCITED to announce another Classics Club 50 will fit this one: The Ox-Bow Incident by Walter Van Tilberg Clark. An ox-bow is defined as
a U-shaped bend in the course of a river.
short for oxbow lake.
a U-shaped collar of an ox yoke.
A title that begins with Z – Darn that I read Z last year (book about Zelda Fitzgerald) so I’m going to try The Zero by Jess Walter – I absolutely loved his Beautiful Ruins.
A nationality – Not sure here. Had American War for this spot when it was on the TOB long list but since it didn’t make the short. I have a lot of great nonfiction options about women that history forgot and I might go that route. Or perhaps American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang which would be a graphic novel and I want more of these. Any other suggestions?
A season – Cruel Winter by Sheila Connelly. I purchased this book for a friend’s birthday because it sounded like something she would enjoy and she promised to let me read it after (and then I’ll give it back so she can loan to her mom.)
I have created a goodreads list of done-reads and possibles for my 2018 tracking here…
Happy Reading Challenges! What is the challenge you are MOST looking forward to this year?
