Opposites Attract Monthly Challenge


Thanks to Jonquil for this idea!

Starting in July, I challenge each of the TCF members to try and see how many opposites you can find within the books you've already selected for the month. The thought is that you're not going to plan for these ahead of time, other than to say how many opposites you're wanting to aim for. Your task is to see which ones sort of "naturally" occur in your typical reading.

Charged: 1-3 pairs
Magnetic: 4-6 pairs
Electric: 7-9 pairs
Resonant: 10-12 pairs
Zeitgeist: 13+ pairs

☯Do not plan out your books ahead of time! See what forms up as you read during the month!
☯Books must be at least 75 pages in length!
☯Books can only be used in one pairing, not multiple ones!

☯Re-reads are allowed

Duration: November 1st to November 30th, 2016

Here are some ideas for Opposite Pairs:
first book in a series/final book of a series
set in a large city/set in a rural area
Female on cover/Guy on cover
gets married/gets divorced
gets the guy or girl/loses the guy or girl
white cover/black cover
set on Earth/set in space
monogamous/party girl
nooky in the bedroom/nooky in the kitchen
has kids/no kids
gets job/loses job
travels to other countries/never leaves town
female MC/male MC
Rourke or male laughed first/Eve or female laughed first
Erotic/Non-sexual (AKA clean romance)

Feel free to use these as a guide, but be sure to use your creativity and create your own as well!

Current plan is to run it through the end of the year, with no plan to continue it in 2017, due to lack of participation.
