Jannelle (jannellereads) | 64 comments December 2015 Reading Challenge: Easy Yearly Wrap-Up Challenge

The whole purpose of this list is to cross those books off your list that have either been on your TBR pile for a while and/or to increase your “read” pile by easily marking off books you have laying around that are easy to get to.
Basically, I’m trying to help you (and myself) out by coming up with the easiest way to cross those books off your list. So, have fun with those topics! Let me know if you have any questions :)

Here are the rules:
1. Choose your difficulty level and create a post so that a link can be made which we will all be able to reference.
2. If you change your difficulty level at any point in time, DO NOT DELETE THE POST. Simply edit your original post with your new difficulty level.
3. As you continue to complete the books on your list, go back to your original post and add the books and the date which you completed them in conjunction with the topic you had selected for that particular book.
4. ALL TOPICS MAY ONLY BE USED ONCE. Same is said for books. You cannot use the same book for 2 or more different topics. You can, however, use the same book for other challenges you may be participating in. :)
5. The books chosen can be from ANY genre and are all only limited to the topics selected from the list below.

Topics:
Read a book with/that…
1. White anywhere on the cover
2. The words “the” or “a” anywhere in the title/series name
3. Less than 200 pages (novellas, anyone?)
4. Has any smidge of romance (heated look, maybe?)
5. Has an odd number of pages
6. Has an even number of pages
7. Black anywhere on the cover
8. Is labeled as one of your favorite genres (For example, I <3 PNR and UF and so, this is the genre I will look for a book in).

Difficulty levels:
Easy – Pick any 2
Medium – Pick any 4
Hard – Pick any 6
Read-a-holic – Read all 8!

Hi Kim! It doesn't have to be a novella; that was just the example I provided for you. The point of that topic is to knock a book off your list by reading something - anything - that is less than 200 pages.
Personally, I will be reading a comic to scratch that topic off the list.

Good luck!

MadameZelda I note the rules don't mention only one book of a series allowed. I would like to select as much of a series as I can because I was gifted with KU and once the gift is over, I don't want to continue buying the KU plan myself; and there is a series I want to read that is in KU before the gift expires.
