Peggy (pebbles84) | 14597 comments Salted caramel ice cream sounds delicious! My favourite chocolate is milk chocolate with sea salt and caramel, from a specific Dutch brand.

Just remember that the challenge is for 12 books (with options of reading more). If you plan to do the main challenge, some of those tricky questions can be dropped.

message 11: by Annerlee (new)

Annerlee | 2640 comments You were asking about a book with Irish in it.. I recently read Star of the Sea, historical fiction set in the time of the Irish famine. There is a lot of Irish spoken by various characters (with the translations, luckily). I'm not sure whether this is your type of thing or whether you want to read such a long book.

I found some of the descriptions heart wrenching... Not an easy subject to face up to (especially as an English person)

Annerlee that's a great idea and a great book! I read it many years age, when I could still read print, and loved it. I have checked it out and it is available on kindle and audible. Thank you so much ;-D

Seems valid, Margo, tho I'm not consulting the criteria for this task. Assuming you must love sleeping? Me too. As long as I'm having restful sleep with some good dreams.

I liked your creative answer for question 14 - toilet : ) Hmm, what to read for this? Seems open to lots of ideas tho. Political scene in US for one maybe, lol.

Do you prefer Classic or Contemporary? Contemporary If Classic, read a book published in 1800 – 1899. If Contemporary, read a book published in 2000 – 2017

I finished Mr. Mercedes on 19th feb. I Used to be a big fan of King back in the day but after Needful Things I became disillusioned. This has been my first dip into a new King novel in many years and I had my doubts about the genre change but it worked. I've already bought the sequel.

I'm also claiming Lying in Wait for task 50 Read a book that was translated from that language to one you do speak. Or, chose a book where a character speaks that language. For example, if you chose Gaelic, you could read any of the books in the Outlander series. Most Irish people are, to some extent bilingual, speaking both Irish and English.

Well, that's 2 down ;-)

Have you been in an accident? Yes If yes, read a book set in a hospital, or with the word “accident” in title. If no, read a book that is a thriller, in which an accident is a high probability.
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

I chose this book because Ruth, one of the 2 main characters, is a nurse and hence a large part of the story takes place in a hospital. I hope this satisfies the criteria :-)

Margo | 9412 comments TASK 50 COMPLETE on 1st February 2017
1/12 https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

I listened to Lying in Wait by Irish author Liz Nugent. Ireland is a bilingual country i.e. English and Irish are spoken.

I have never come across a book where a character speaks Irish during the course of the book that isn't completely in Irish! I'm sure some exist but I've seen one. As I'm limited to audiobooks and kindle I don't that big a rang to chose from. The rule in Ireland is that all children under the age of 12 must learn Irish in school so it's reasonable to assume that the characters do speak the language! I arrived here at 13 so I didn't learn it.

UPDATE : Annerlee kindly suggested Star of the Sea but as Janice said this book was okay I'll let it stand.

Is it ok to use that for task 8, my favourite season (for which I answered Halloween )? I'm asking as it is a play rather than a novel but I read the print script.
