You are cordially invited to the Challenge Corner Dinner Party!



Have you heard of a 7 course dinner? Well, we’re upping the ante and doing 10 courses! You will pick 1 category from each course to read (in any order) and once you’ve completed your meal, you can start over picking new categories.

So, round 1 may look like this:
Hors d’oeuvre - paranormal character,
Soup - set on a farm
Salad - moon on cover
Appetizer - food in text
Main Course - set in winter
Sides - a baby is born
Drinks - dark in title
Dessert - page count has a 3 & 1
Coffee - MC has black hair
Nightcap - party in text.

Now you start over, picking new categories for each course, for a total of 15 complete dinners, whew!
