25.8 - Brooke TX's task: Finally, A Little Vacation

This is a TWO book task. Read two books from two different options below.

REQUIRED: State the options you chose when posting.

This year I'm finally taking a real vacation, a Vegas trip with my college roommates for a festival. To celebrate, these task options are based around our plans.

NOTE: Sequential Art, Comics, Comic Book, or Manga may be used provided the general SRC guidelines are met.

Option 1. Gotham City Sirens: Because we love dressing up, we chose different costume themes for each day of the festival. Our first choice was classic Batman villainesses - Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy. For this option, choose a book with main page genre "Superheroes." The genre may stand alone or be embedded.

Option 2. Lisa Frank: Our next choice was that neon 90s favorite, Lisa Frank. For this option, choose a book whose cover is at least 50% pink or purple.
Ex: Jinx by Meg Cabot You Wish by Mandy Hubbard Emma  by Jane Austen Teen Idol by Meg Cabot Plum Lovin' (Stephanie Plum, #12.5) by Janet Evanovich

Option 3. Candyland: Day 3 is for classic children's board game Candyland. For this option, choose a book whose author's initals can be found in CANDYLAND. Middle initials may be ignored. If a book has multiple authors, only one author's initials must fit the task.

Option 4. From Chicago to Las Vegas: It's been 9 years since the three of us first met at school in Chicago, and while each of us has been to Vegas before separately, it's our first trip together. For this option, read a book set at least 50% in Illinois or Nevada.
Required: If the setting is not clear from the Goodreads description, explain how your book fits the task when you post.

Yes, as long as it's primarily on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe; any Nevada setting works.
