Retitle Your Current Read Challenge

For this, your final mini-challenge of the readathon, I thought it would be fun if we all tried to come up with a new title for our current read, or really anything we’ve read during this Bout of Books 10.0.  For me, a great title can really go a long way toward making me want to read a book and I thought it would be fun to play with that concept a little bit.  Your new title can be something you ACTUALLY think would make a good title, or just something descriptive or something funny!  It’s totally up to you!

 

“Only One Girl All Men Are Allowed To Love and Lust”

Seriously though, literally nearly every single male character wants this one female character Sofia. I want her to die so I can stop hearing how awesome she is.

Challenge One:

 

coverchallenge

Cover Scavenger Hunts are my favorite type of challenges. All the book covers we used are from reviews on the blog from April and May, so happy hunting. 

  1. Hidden: A Child’s Story of the Holocaust by Loic Dauvillier
  2. The Accidental Keyhand by Jen Swann Downey
  3. The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza by James Kochalka
  4. Fly Away by Patricia Maclachlan
  5. North of Nowhere by Liz Kessler
  6. Entwined by Heather Dixon
  7. The Night Gardener by Jonathan Auxier
  8. Marathon by Boaz Yakin
  9. The Great American Dust Bowl by Don Brown 

Challenge Two: Rainbow Of Books

Here’s your challenge: Create a stack of book spines from your bookshelf, or post pictures of the covers, that go in rainbow order. So, you start with white on the bottom, then red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo (purple), violet (like a darker purple), and then black! The spine should have at least a majority be the color you are looking for, but just use your best judgement to get the rainbow-like flow.

This Made Me Think Of That Challenge

Just think about the book you are reading now, or one you’ve read before, and tell me something you think goes with it and why.

The something can be another book, a movie, a song, a ballet, a drink, a special food or meal…no need to get Proustian about it, but if madelines are involved, it’s okay.

For more info on the challenge check out the host blog.

My first thoughts were The Thirteenth Tale paired with a warm cup of Lemon and Honey Tea. Though of course that will go with just about any book, specially Jane Austen books. However, I chose this book because our main character is also a reader and the story is a mystery that takes place in one of those awesome old houses.

The second I chose On The Jellicoe Road and Chocolate. Again, chocolate can go with reading in generally, but with this book you really need the little bit of extra happy cause the book is sad!

I thought of more, but they were all food related so I thought it best to stop and go get something to eat haha. As always, if you wish to pick up a copy of these books, just click on the cover.

Till Next Time…

Bout Of Books – Day 1 Challenges

All you have to do is give one or more recommendations based on the formula “If you like ____, try ___.” The specifics are entirely up to you. You can give a recommendation based on an entire genre, an author, a title, a random subject, whatever! The winner will receive the book of his/her choice ($15 or less) from The Book Depository!

For more details, check out the Official Post.

Luckily for me I did a similar thing not that long ago for a Top Ten Tuesday.

belgariad1-pawn-of-prophecy-front-cover 1. If you liked the mini TV Series Merlin I think you should read the The Belgariad Series by David Eddings. Old and Magical.

 

 

 

9780752881676 2. Though I havent actually watched this movie, I think if you enjoyedWuthering Heights you would really enjoy the book The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. Setting is similar and it also has its sorrows.

 

 

91JrUQ9WgOL._SL1500_ 3. I think If you liked the Lord of the Rings Movie Series you would really enjoy The Forgotten War by Howard Sargent. They both have epic adventures and characters, as well as mystical items.

 

 

daughteroftheforest 4. If you liked the old The Storyteller series I think you will really love The Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. The story teller gave us stories that were out of this world and things of legend, and this book is one such story.

 

 

Be sure to link me to your posts! I want new things to read too.
