I'm thinking of reading Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch Idaho (read a book with food on the cover or in the title), The Selection (The Selection, #1) by Kiera Cass for Indiana (read a book that is part of a five book series), and Frozen (Heart of Dread, #1) by Melissa de la Cruz for Iowa (read book published in September).

Question: can a book cover more than one description? for example for "Love and Gelato" can I say it covers Idaho (food in cover or title), New Jersey (book with Love in the title), and Nebraska (read a contemporary novel), or can I only use one of them?
Don't know if that makes sense, coffee is still kicking in XD
