Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Over in a Flash - hopefully will be a reoccurring challenge.

I stole this idea (with permission) from the SOS: Serious Overload of Series group.

Over in a Flash ~ Cover Hunt & Theme Challenge ~

Duration: October 1st through October 31st.

Rules: Read 2 books with the following items found on their covers; choose 2 of the 3 options below. Be sure to post your book covers, dates read, and star ratings. If you want, you can do this at the end of the month after you reviewed your covers. Feel free to do all three if you want.

Member Choosing: Melissa from Pennsylvania (U.S.A.) has been a GoodReads member since October 2009, and a participant of Happily Ever After Café since July, 2010. She most enjoys reading about romance, but dabbles in other genres. Obviously, she loves GoodReads - since she is in a grand total of 63 groups!

COLOR: Pink!

HOLIDAY: (1) Hallowe'en (October 31st) Read a book that has witches/wizards, vampires, werewolves, anything paranormal in it. (2) National Adopt a Shelter Animal Month: Read a book featuring some type of animal adoption or an animal that was adopted from a shelter. (3) Eleanor Roosevelt (October 11) and Margaret Thatcher (October 13) birthdays - Read a book that has a woman in a position of power.

ITEMS: Opal (October birthstone), Marigolds (October flower), pumpkin, castle (inside one or one shown), Cookies, Magic (swirls or anything that could be considered magic happening), and anything Hallowe'en related...
