15.2. “Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer” – read two books with different words in their titles that rhyme with each other. If you’re not sure of your rhyme, check here - WikiRhymer. The words you use must be “pure rhymes.” If you’re looking for groups of words that rhyme, go to the bottom of the page and click on “largest rhyme sets” – that will show you the words with the largest group of rhyming matches. If you're trying to find a rhyme for a specific word, you can put in the word itself to find rhymes for it.
Examples: Beat the Reaper and Heat Wave (Beat and Heat); Zoo Station and The Man Who Made Lists: Love, Death, Madness, and the Creation of Roget's Thesaurus (Station and Creation)

http://www.pronouncenames.com/pronoun.... I don't see any word in the first book that would rhyme with Villette.

subtitles yes, series titles no.

The "default" rule is that series titles do not count in any task, unless they are specifically mentioned as being allowed. See http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/8..., Task Requirment #1.

Megan Anderson (Ms_Anderson) | 1481 comments This site is pretty interesting. For example, if I put in "true," it gives me "to" as a pure rhyme. However, if I put in "to," then "true" doesn't come up. Odd.

Nick (doily) | 1205 comments Just double checking that "Montana" Montana 1948 and "Havana" Havana Bay will count as a pure rhyme. "Havana" in a Spanish accent would be a near rhyme (I think), but in Kentucky English the words sound like they rhyme purely.

When I say them, they sure sound like they rhyme! I think you're fine with this pair.

Maria Jo Would 'Ostia' (The Thieves of Ostia) and 'Zia' (Zia) work?

Deadly Care
The Second Chair

Sorry, the task specifically requires two different words.

You need to read 2 books for this task, so it doesn't really matter in terms of this title - but yes, the rhyming word in each title could be a proper name.
