25.4. Elizabeth B's task: Celebration!

My husband and I are going to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary on September 10th. In honor of this celebration and for this challenge, pick TWO options from the choices below and read a book for each:

Option A: read the seventh book in a series (the book must be identified as part of a series on Goodreads), or a book with the number seven in the title (not including subtitles), in numeral form or spelled out. Ordinal numbers can also be used, so Seventh Heaven would work.

Option B: Read a book that was first published in 2006. To help you out, here are some lists:
Best Books of 2006
YA Novels of 2006
New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2006
As always, be cautious when using GR Listopias, to make sure that the book you choose actually fits the task.

Option C: Read a book that shows an adult or teenaged couple engaged in what is obviously a romantic kiss or embrace on the cover.
REQUIRED: Include the cover in your post.

REQUIRED: State which options you used when you post.

Thanks, Elizabeth. Work is so very stressful with lots of company change going on that I was delighted to find a task where I could plug in such fun reads. Thanks.
