What's in a Name 2017 Reading Challenge

When I was blogging under the Mystery Bookshelf blog several years ago I always participated in this challenge.  It was fun roaming my local bookstore for titles that would fit the requirements.  I am joining again under my new blog.

Participants are required to choose a book from each of the following categories:

1.  A number in the title
2.  A building
3.  A title which has the letter x in it
4.  A compass direction
5.  An item of cutlery
6.  A title in which 2 words begin with the same letter

Titles cannot overlap from other challenges in this challenge which is hosted by The Worm Hole blog.

2017 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

I am joining the 2017 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge at the Renaissance Reader level.  This requires that I read 10 books.  The challenge is hosted by the Passages to the Past blog and runs the 2017 calendar year.  I love the medieval era and will be reading some medieval mysteries in addition to other eras within the Historical Fiction genre

The Creativity Reading Challenge

I plan on using the Creativity Reading Challenge to concentrate on reviewing art and craft books.  I may even venture into reviewing a cookbook or two.

I started spinning fiber into yarn this past year and am anxious to read a few books on spinning and watch some dvds.  It is a fun hobby that I am still learning.  On to the challenge!

New Authors Reading Challenge

In order to get out of my rut I am joining the New Authors Reading Challenge.  I would like to read some memoirs and historical fiction books for this challenge as well as a few Asian authors.  The challenge runs the 2017 calendar year and there is no required number of books to read.

Craving for Cozies 2017 Book Challenge

I am joining the Craving for Cozies challenge at the Peckish level.  This level requires me to read 10 Cozies in 2017.  I have enjoyed authors Laura Childs, Cleo Coyle, Julie Hyzy and Susan Wittig Albert in the past but look forward to finding new authors to read also.

10th Annual Manga/Graphic Novel Reading Challenge

I am joining the 10th Annual Manga/Graphic Novel Reading Challenge. I am a new fan of graphic novels and am excited to get started in the Modern Age level where I will be reading 12 books this year.
