BOOK SCAVENGER HUNT RULES:

Book scavenger hunts are like scavenger hunts but with reading! There will be a list of items (eg: read a book with a green cover) and each item will have a different point value. You will have one month to gather as many points as you can, and at the end of the month, the person with the most points wins!

Rules:
1. One book per item on the list—books CANNOT double count!
2. You must read the book within the month of the scavenger hunt—previously read books DO NOT count (unless, of course, you reread)!
3. Magazines DO NOT count.
4. Short stories DO NOT count (unless you read an anthology of short stories).
5. Novellas DO count.
6. HAVE FUN!!!

Em wrote: "For the "Read a book with song lyrics in the title" does the book have to be named after the song, or can it just be coincidental?"

what do you mean?

I think that Em meant that do the song lyrics in the title have to be intentional. Like should it have to relate to the book, and be there for a reason, or can you choose a book that's title is for example "Renegades" and then there is a song called Renegades, or does it have to be like "Dear Evan Hansen"?

In simpler words, do the song lyrics in the title have to be relevant to the story, or can I just find a song that has the same lyrics as a book I want to read.

I don't know if this was helpful or not...

Just finished Eliza and Her Monsters! Soooo good

Rebekah (bekahkc) | 780 comments Mod
Haha yeah. She's the author of a webcomic which I think counts!


message 10: by - (new)

- (rosafragola) Seems interesting!
I have a question: usually, I read books translated, if I choose to participate I have to consider the original edition or the translated one for the challenge? (Often the cover is different, and so is the title)


message 11: by ally, 嗜书人 (new)

ally (celaena_coin) | 1047 comments Mod
Wait do you guys think that The Unexpected Everything counts as the main character is an author...

In my opinion, I would say the cover and title that YOU would be reading.

Sorry, another question, does this count as a book with “end” in the title?

- (rosafragola) Hi, I just finished reading a book about a girl that writes fanfiction and publishes them online. She also had to write a short story for her college studies (view spoiler).
I think of her as an author of fanfiction, but I was wondering if it does count for the challenge because she doesn't publish a book in the book.
Thank you in advance!


message 28: by - (new)

- (rosafragola) The book is Fangirl
