This challenge lasts for 1 year from the date you start


This Challenge was inspired by the book Forrest Gump and the Chocolate Tasting Wheel created by Mont Blanc Gourmet. Forrest Gump is one of my all time favorite movies/books and, well, I don't know about anyone else, but I love reading and chocolates. I thought creating a reading challenge which combined the three would be an excellent idea. Hopefully you agree.

You may tackle this challenge in one of two ways--let the tasting wheel be your guide or the chocolate manufacturers. If you are truly ambitious, you may do both. First, select one or more words on the Chocolate Tasting Wheel (link above with words listed below) or one or more of the names of the chocolate manufacturers (listed in the following post). Then, do one of the following two things:

- Do a Spell-It-Out Challenge. Using the word(s) you've chosen, spell the word(s) out using the first letter in the book's title, the first letter in the author's first or last name, or the first letter of a character's first, last, or nick-name. As always, if the first letter of a title starts with 'A', 'An', 'The', etc., you may use the first letter of the second word in the title to spell out your chosen word. FYI, you can opt to do a combination of any of the above.

- Read books for which the word(s) you've selected are portrayed on the cover OR incorporated within the title OR are in some way introduced in the book. If the introduction isn't obvious, site the page where the item was a topic of discussion. For instance, if someone stated they'd rather be tarred and feathered, you can mark that bad boy off your list. (Yes, I am cringing at the thought of tar and chocolate being combined. *Shudder*)

Wild Card: You may eliminate ONE item from any tier/category by substituting a book with Chocolate in the title or on the cover. Sometimes knocking an item off the list can be hard, this is your way around it.

Example of a Spell-It-Out:

C - Cat from Up from the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
L - Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge
A - Alex Flinn author of Towering
Y - The Yellow Line by Kitrin Haas
