2016 What I'm Reading Wednesday #15 (June 8)

I am still reading The Interior Circuit by Francisco Goldman.  I know, boring.  I am still really enjoying the book.  It's just a busy time of year for me, and I don't get a lot of reading time right now.  However, all of that is about to change really soon, so when I discovered a new reading challenge, I had to sign up!

The Book Challenge by Erin is a Facebook group with a unique reading challenge.  The challenge starts on July 1st and ends October 31st.  Different categories are awarded different point values.  Here are my choices for each category:

• 5 points: Freebie: Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
• 10 points: Book that starts with the letter “R”.  Room by Emma Donoghue
• 10 points: Book with five words in the title.  Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis
• 15 points: Book that has a (mostly) blue cover.  Armada by Ernest Cline
• 20 points: Book with twins as characters.  The Sorceress by Michael Scott
• 20 points: Book made into a movie.  Wild by Cheryl Strayed• 25 points: Book set in a country you have always wanted to visit.  The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
• 30 points: Historical fiction book. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
• 30 points: Music related book. The Haters by Jesse Andrews
• 35 points: Book originally published over 100 years ago. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
