20.8 – It’s My Birthday! - Sue Q's task: Beginnings and Endings

Read 1 book from one of the following options:

Option 1: Beginnings

Summer in Canada means longer daylight hours! There is something so uplifting about waking up in the morning to sunshine! Read a book that has one of the following words in the title/subtitle: “light”, “daylight”, “morning”, “sunshine”, “sun” – no variations of these words allowed.


Option 2: Endings

Some of my favourite things in summer end with the letter “k”: kayak, drink, hammock, book! Read a book with any word in the title/subtitle that ends with the letter “k”.

Required: State which option you chose when posting.

These work:

Shocking Pink - Erica Spindler (Pink = ends in k = Option 2)
Fairytale of New York - Miranda Dickinson (York = ends in k = Option 2)
The Notebook - Nicholas Sparks (Notebook = ends in k = Option 2)


These don't work:

(none so far!)

Fiona (Titch) Hunt (titch) Brillant, trying to use my bookcases in bedroom (so hubby won't nag again lol) x


message 8: by Sue Q (new)

Sue Q | 45 comments lol If you end up sticking with that book, it has the added bonus of being a Big Book Ticket book AND you could possibly be the first to write a review (if you want, of course!) - something that is very rare to find these days on GR. So it looks like your bookcases are full of gems :D
