Post here to claim your points. Let us know what task, what book, and your total points so far. Something like this:

5.1 Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
Total Points: 5

You can put more than 1 in the post and I see some people keep track of pages, book count, etc. It isn't necessary but totally fine if it helps you keep track better.

10.5 Country Middle Passage by Charles R. Johnson

(Book takes place on a ship along the 'middle passage' from the US to Africa. One of my countries was Namibia which is one of the places the ship lands.)

15.3 Yellow Dietland by Sarai Walker (This book made me think in a negative way. The book is supposed to be fiction with social commentary, but for a book that is so praised it falls flat in a lot of places. I wanted to like this book for what it was trying to do but just couldn't because of how poorly it did it.)

15.6 Purple Fairest by Marissa Meyer
(Book is about princess/queen Levana, I definitely claimed this book last challenge but I had to re-read this before I read Winter!)

20.1 Group Read 1 Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
(I'm writing my senior thesis on this trilogy! I added a review on the thread and if anyone is interested I'll post my thesis somewhere when it is finished.)

25.5 Home is Where the Heart Is Valencia by Michelle Tea and See How They Run by Ally Carter
(Valencia takes place in San Francisco which is close/similar to my current home Oakland. See How They Run takes place in a semi-fictional town that is super beautiful.)
