Reading challenge 2017 – update

I’ve not looked at the Reading Challenge for a few months but I’m always reading plus at the beginning of the year when the challenge started I made a note of books for some of the categories on the list.

  1.  About a place you wished you lived – The leaving of things – Jay Antani (India)
  2. In a genre you usually avoid – The lost city of Z – David Grann
  3. With yellow on the cover – The case of the broken doll – Alison Golden and Grace Dagnell
  4. That is becoming a movie in 2017 – The dinner – Herman Koch
  5. A book with a one word title – Greyhound – Steffan Piper
  6. An Audiobook – The memory box – Eva Lesko Natiello
  7. You can get for free – Most of my books are from the library so are free
  8. You planned to read last year but didn’t – End of watch – Stephen King
  9. You read on a trip – Now you see me – SJ Bolton
  10. Suggested by a friend – State of wonder – Ann Patchett
  11. From a series you started but have yet to finish – Finders Keepers – Stephen King
  12. You finish in a day – Blackout – Emily Barr
  13. Published this year –
  14. With an epic romance –
  15. That takes you somewhere warm – Summer in Tuscany – Elizabeth Adler
  16. Short stories or under 200 pages – Public library and other stories – Ali Smith
  17. Considered a 20th century classic – The magic toy shop – Angela Carter
  18. Set in the future – The Circle – Dave Eggers
  19. You choose for the cover – The watcher – Ross Armstrong
  20. With a reputation of Un-put-down-able –
  21. With a mother/daughter relationship – The taken – Alice Clarke-Platts
  22. Free choice – The descent of man – Grayson Perry

It’s going well, considering there’s still 4 months left and only 3 categories left to complete. The hardest will be epic romance as this is not a genre I usually read/look for I have just completed the Harry Potter series (again) and could possibly use that if nothing else comes along before the end of the year.

Suggestions gratefully received….
