Hello dears,

Recently, in one of my Pinterest roamings I've come across a reading challenge for 2015 and decided right away to take it on. My previous challenge (details here -> Read or Die) went quite nicely. So here's the reading list with my book choices for each category: 

:bulletpurple: A book with more than 500 pages -> Dune: The butlerian jihad by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

:bulletpurple: A classic romance -> Age of innocence by Edith Warton

:bulletpurple: A book that became a movie -> The hunger games 1

:bulletpurple: A book published this year -> I have no idea what to choose!

:bulletpurple: A book with a number in the title -> 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson 

:bulletpurple: A book written by someone under 30 -> The tiger's wife by Tea Obreht

:bulletpurple: A book with nonhuman characters -> The gods themselves by Isaac Asimov

:bulletpurple: A funny book -> Heartless by Gail Carriger (the 4th from Parasol Protectorate series :heart:)

:bulletpurple: A book by a female author -> The valley of amazement by Amy Tan

:bulletpurple: A book with a one-word title -> Rashomon by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa

:bulletpurple: A book of short stories -> Too much happiness by Alice Munro - already read 

:bulletpurple: A book set in a different country -> Impossible to decide, I can just pick any random one

:bulletpurple: A nonfiction book -> Cosmos by Carl Sagan

:bulletpurple: A popular author's first book -> Maybe Murakami's Hear the wind sing

:bulletpurple: A book from an author you love that you haven't read yet -> surely Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace

:bulletpurple: A book a friend recommended -> This perfect day by Ira Levin

:bulletpurple: A Pulitzer prize-winning book -> Beloved by Toni Morisson

:bulletpurple: A book based on a true story -> In cold blood by Truman Capote, or 12 years a slave

:bulletpurple: A book at the bottom of your to-read list -> Flashforward by Robert J. Sawyer

:bulletpurple: A book your mom loves -> n/a because she doesn't read

:bulletpurple: A book that scares you -> The shining :paranoid: 

:bulletpurple: A book more than 100 years old -> Far from the madding crowd

:bulletpurple: A book based entirely on its cover -> Normally I don't buy a book based on the cover, but there was one exception, just that I didn't buy and I can't remember the title or author. But when I'll see it I'll know it. It depicted a woman sitting on a bench hunched over a book a think. 

:bulletpurple: A book you were supposed to read in school but didn't -> n/a I pretty much read them all

:bulletpurple: A memoir -> 12 years a slave

:bulletpurple: A book you can finish in a day -> The postman always rings twice

:bulletpurple: A book with antonyms in the title -> Little, big by John Crowley

:bulletpurple: A book set somewhere you've always wanted to visit -> Vienna :heart: The painted kiss by Elizabeth Hickey

:bulletpurple: A book that came out the year you were born -> Replay by Ken Grimwood

:bulletpurple: A book with bad reviews -> Son of Rosemary by Ira Levin (and first I will have to read Rosemary's baby)

:bulletpurple: A trilogy -> already read :D The Jean le Flambeur series by Hannu Rajaniemi

:bulletpurple: A book from your childhood -> Can't think of anything I haven't read from local lit, so maybe I'll just go for the Chronicles or Narnia at last

:bulletpurple: A book with a love triangle -> The notebook by Nicholas Sparks 

:bulletpurple: A book set in the future -> Rendez-vous with Rama

:bulletpurple: A book set in high-school -> The lightning thief or A girl of Limberlost

:bulletpurple: A book with a colour in the title -> The colour purple

:bulletpurple: A book that made you cry -> Well this one is an odd category since I cannot tell. The last book that made me cry desperately was The Angel's Game by C.R.Zafon. However I think I'll go for My sister's keeper which is supposed to be a sad novel.

:bulletpurple: A book with magic -> Her majesty's dragon

:bulletpurple: A graphic novel -> Persepolis

:bulletpurple: A book by an author you've never read before -> Leigh Bardugo Shadow&Bone

:bulletpurple: A book you own but have never read -> Satantango by László Krasznahorkai

:bulletpurple: A book that takes place in your hometown -> n/a Don't know of any

:bulletpurple: A book that was originally written in a different language -> Satantango by László Krasznahorkai

:bulletpurple: A book set during Christmas -> I have a book called "Let it snow" with 3 stories set during Xmas yay

:bulletpurple: A book written by an author with the same initials -> China Mieville :heart:

:bulletpurple: A play -> No idea, maybe Heine...

:bulletpurple: A banned book -> Tropic of cancer by Henry Miller 

:bulletpurple: A book based on or turned into a TV show -> Under the dome

:bulletpurple: A book you started but never finished -> One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (started it about 8 years ago)

Now let us read and enjoy the rain.

Take care! :blowkiss:
