SCWBC16: First Update

Thursday, December 1, 2016

I am disappointed in myself.  I only managed to read two books (putting me at 40 points).  I wanted to read more but I just can't seem to find the time to read lately.  


10 points: Read a brand-new release (something published between November 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017).
Pepped Up by Ali Dean (11/23/16)

30 points:  Read a book with a character that shares your first or last name.
Cinder and Ella by Kelly Oram (11/22/16)


5 points: Freebie!  Read any book that is at least 150 pages long.
Survive the Night by Danielle Vega

10 points: Read a 2016 finalist (longlist or shortlist) for one of the following literary prizes: National Book Award, Man Booker or Man Booker International.
The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
15 points: Read a book by an author of a different race or religion than you.
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

15 points: Read a book featuring a main character who is of a different race or religion than you.
The Girl From The Train by Irma Joubert (main character is Jewish)

20 points: Read a modern retelling of a classic
Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell

 25 points: Read a book with an alcoholic beverage (neat or cocktail) in the title.
Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury

30 points: Read two books: a nonfiction book and a fiction book with which it connects.
Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly
Ravensbruck by Sarah Helm

40 points: Read two books: one by an author whose first name is the same as the last name of the author of the other book. For example: You may read a book by Martin Cruz Smith and a book by George R.R. Martin, or a book by James Joyce and a book by Joyce Carol Oates. The shared name must be spelled exactly the same, no variations.
Fallen by Lauren Kate
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
