20.2 - Rookie at the Top - Chrissy's task: Sweet Summer

I love that I get to create a task for this challenge. I wouldn't have thought that I come that far when I started. Beside reading I love to cook and eat so what's better in summer than to enjoy heaps of fresh fruit, homebaked goodies and ice cream?!

No books with the genre "children" listed on the book's main page may be used for this task.

This is a ONE book task. You have 5 options:

Required: State which option you chose when you post.

Option A: I recently came across a book called Oreo. Of course, I immediately was in the mood for exactly those cookies and had to run to the store. At the same time I had an idea, which I will use here: Read a book with a title/subtitle that contains a word that starts and ends with the same letter. I get that not all books are as cool as Oreo but I still love that particular idea. Ex: Explosive Eighteen ~ Explosive

Option B: Read a book with a food item on the cover. Ex.
Discord's Apple by Carrie Vaughn Strawberry Shortcake Murder (Hannah Swensen, #2) by Joanne Fluke Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder (Hannah Swensen, #1) by Joanne Fluke Make Lemonade (Make Lemonade, #1) by Virginia Euwer Wolff Artichoke's Heart by Suzanne Supplee Skinny by Ibi Kaslik Eggs by Jerry Spinelli

Required: Include the cover when you post.


Option C: Read a book with a food item in the title/subtitle. Curiously, some of the examples above work for both ex. Discord's Apple; Strawberry Shortcake Murder; Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder; Eggs

Option D: Read a book by an author whose first and last name start with a letter in the word STRAWBERRIES.


Option E: I love to eat ice cream in the summer. I am always overwhelmed how many flavors are sold in the shops. I never can limit myself to one scoop. However, this time you must limit yourself as it is a one book task.
Name your favorite ice cream flavor and read a book that has a word from the ice cream flavor in the title/subtitle.
Ex.
"blackberry": Blackberry Summer
"mint": Orange Mint and Honey
"vanilla": Anything But Vanilla
"mint chocolate chip": Like Water for Chocolate
"rocky road": The Road
Required: State your favorite flavor.

Clarifications:

Option A -- Any word that begins and ends with the same letter will work.

Option D -- letters can only be used as often as they appear; if multiple authors, one must fit the task

Wondering if a word like SisterS would qualify? .... Or is this restricted to vowels?

Yes, as long as one of the author fits the book will work.
