For this year's A to Z Challenge I featured books I've read based on the Reading Challenge.
Today's post details all the categories that didn't fit under A to Y!
A book with more than 500 pages: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
A classic romance: Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
A book that became a movie: The Human Comedy by William Saroyan
A book written by someone under 30: Liza of Lambeth by Somerset Maugham
A funny book: Flowers for Mrs Harris by Paul Gallico
A book you started but never finished: Wicked by Gregory Maguire
A nonfiction book: An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield
A popular author's first book: Something Wrong (horror stories) by Edith Nesbit (1893!)
A Pulitzer Prize winning book: Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
A book that scares you: 1984 by George Orwell
A memoir: Moab Is My Washpot by Stephen Fry
A play: Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett
A book that came out the year you were born: Bunnicula: A Rabbit-Tale of Mystery by Deborah Howe and James Howe
A trilogy: The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster
A book set in the future: The Spaceship Under the Apple Tree by Louis Slobodkin (not exactly in the future, of course, but it is science fiction)
A book set in high school: Bright Days, Stupid Nights by Norma Fox Mazer and Harry Mazer
A book that made you cry: The Summer of Skinny Dipping by Amanda Howells
A banned book: A lot of my favourite authors have been banned at one time or another. Judy Blume, WH Auden, the list goes on. Banning books is ridiculous.
A book a friend recommended: The Only Alien on the Planet by Kristen D. Randle
Speaking of recommendations, here's a great way to share books and a love of reading:
I've signed up for the free publication StoryMonsters Ink
and their last issue featured Dolly Parton's Imagination Library!
"Originally, the Imagination Library was created as a way to reach out to preschool children in Dolly's home county in East Tennessee. Her dream was to foster a love of reading at an early age by giving children the gift of a special book each month, regardless of income. The Imagination Library grew so popular that in 2000, she decided to offer the program to any community willing to partner with her. Today, more than 1,600 local communities have joined the Imagination Library."
There are five categories I haven't had a chance to fill. Please give me your suggestions!
A book by an author you've never read before
A book based entirely on its cover
A book written by an author with the same initials as you
A book with antonyms in the title
A book with bad reviews
