Hello everybody!

I know it's been like, AGES, since I created a challenge. Since I was tired of studying, and activity on GoodReads is pretty low, I thought of creating one or more challenges:D



WELCOME TO THE CHALLENGE!

=>BASIC RULES:

Time Limit : 6 months from start date
Levels :
Easy ~ upto 3 books
Medium ~ 4-7 books
Hard ~ 8-10 books


You have to read books from each of the following categories below:

- A reference to time (Eg. Eleven Minutes, Before Ever After)
- A reference to a color (Eg. Black Beauty, The Scarlet Letter)
- A reference to emotions/feelings (Eg. Love Story)
- A reference to a number written in words (Eg. Thirteen Reasons Why, A Tale of Two Cities)
- A reference to any animal/bird (Eg. Of Mice and Men, To Kill A Mockingbird)
- A reference to any element of weather (Eg. Gone With the Wind, Red Earth Pouring Rain)
- A reference to a person (common noun) (Eg. My Sister's Wedding, The Girl Next Door)
- A reference to a name (Eg. Rebecca, Eleanor & Park)
- A reference to a country/place (Eg. Out of Africa, A Passage to India)
- A reference to any foodstuff/drinks (Eg. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Green Eggs and Ham)

A FEW MORE GUIDELINES:

- The books can be of any format : print, ebook or audio.
- A single book can't be used for more than 1 category. For eg,. the book Green Eggs and Ham can be used for both categories 2 and 10, but you can use it only for one category.
- Be creative and match the categories with interesting books!
- The books can be read in any order.
- You can make the list as you read, no need to create it beforehand.
