Semi-Charmed Winter 2012 Book Challenge

This looks like a fun seasonal challenge to do. I'm use to doing yearly challenges, and seasonal challenges look to be good compliments to them. 

Tentative List:

  • Author haven't read before:  Allison Hewitt is Trapped by Madeleine Roux
  • Book have at home To-Be-Read: Red Rain by R.L. Stine
  • Book From My Decade: Manhunt by Janet Evanovich
  • Book From Birthstate: (Mississippi) John Grisham, The Rainmaker
  • Book from The ________'s Wife: Another Man's Wife by Rebecca Winters (as close as can get from my overwhelming TBR pile)
  • Book Originally Written in Other Language: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
  • Book With Number in Title: One Deadly Sister by Rod Hoisington
  • Book Set During Christmas or Winter: Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis
  • Book With Author With My Initials: The Great Controversy by Ellen White
  • Pulitzer Prize For Fiction: The Color Purple by Alice Walker
  • Re-Read A Book:  Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
  • Three Books From Three Genres:  
      Mystery: The Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries by Emily Brightwell
      Biography: Still Me by Christopher Reeves
      Young Adult: High School Bites by Heather Brewer      

I very likely won't finish this completely. Since it runs till the end of January I'll give it a shot, but I didn't start at the beginning of November. I had already planned to reread Dead Witch Walking for the release of Ever After in January. I wanted to read Allison Hewitt is Trapped in December for the zombie challenge before it's over and also since it's on borrow from a friend. Red Rain I wanted to read soon also, same for high School Bites. I'd say I may finish at least five of this challenge.


  • The challenge will run from November 1, 2012, to January 31, 2013. (I know this should technically be the Semi-Charmed Winter 2012-2013 Book Challenge, but that is just too long and doesn't make as nice of a hashtag.) No books that are started before 12 a.m. on November 1 or finished after 11:59 p.m. on January 31 will count.
  • No re-reads (unless specifically stated)! I want you to experience new books with this challenge.
  • Each book must be at least 200 pages long. Audiobooks are fine, as long as the print versions meet the page requirements.
  • A book can only be used for one category. If you want to switch the category later, that's fine, just be sure to account for that in your point total.
  • The highest possible total is 200 points, and the first five people who finish the challenge will win a featured/guest post on Semi-Charmed Kind of Life. Good luck!
