BOOKS ON THE LIST TO READ 
I realize there are quite a few books on this list, and I'm sure I won't get to them
all. I do have July 20th through the 28th off because I'm moving so hopefully
 I can get some reading done then. After that I'll be living with my husbands
parents so I'm sure I'll be staying in my room most the time which will allow
me to read as well. I'm pretty pumped to knock out some books. :)

Challenges
17th Jul. Spell It Out
Use the first letter of any book read so far this year to spell out a Summer themed word that is 5 letters or more. If the title begins with The, A or An, move into the following word. Letters Q, V, X, Z can be anywhere in the title. For example:
- Searching for Beautiful
- And We Stay
N - No and Me
D - Dark Star
A - Ash's Letter
L - Lament
S - Sweet Peril

24th Jul. Twitter Book Recommendation
You must recommend four different books from four different genres, but you can only use 140 characters in which to do so. You can't use character names, major plot points, spoilers of snippets from synopsis, it must be in your own words. For example:
Contemporary Recommendation WonderWonder is a story of kindness and love, highlighting how positivity can make you beautiful and how one person can affect so many lives.

31st Jul. Spine Poetry
You must create a small poem made entirely of spines of the books you've read in 2014. You may add up to seven words to join the titles together and and each title much be longer than four letters long.

7th Aug. Character Personality
You must choose five characters from books you've read in 2014 that each reflect an area of your personality. They can be male or female, adults or childrens, it really doesn't matter, just as long as part of their character reflects yours. For example:
Caymen Meyers: Quirky Sense of Humour and Wisecracking Sarcasm.

14th Aug. Follow That Title
I will list seven words, and the challenge is to choose one book title with one of the words in it, and then choose a second title with a different word from the first title in it and follow the pattern through 6 books until you finish with a book that has another word from the list in it's title, and also a word from the 5th books title. For example:
Gone With the Wind, Gone Girl, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Dragon HeirShadow HeirShadow and Bone.

The following list of words are those you can choose from. You must start the challenge with one word and finish it with another and you must only choose 6 books. Because this challenge is much more difficult than the others, you are allowed to choose books you've read in the past 12 months, not just 2014 and it's worth 5 entries, not 3. The list is as follows:  

1) Love(s)
2) Boy(s)
3) Girl(s)
4) Beautiful
5) Dark(ness)(est)
6) Life/Lives
7) You/Me
