Jenni Kemling | 65 comments I'm trying to have my plan finished before the end of the month as a personal goal and I am desperate for suggestions. Here is a link to my list so far https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I like all types of books!

Guy | 37 comments I think you are doing great. Your choices so far are excellent. A lot of the ones that are still blank are sort of specific to you. I'm sure you will be inspired as you proceed. And other readers' plans are also a good source of ideas.

Ireene | 36 comments "A book that scares you". Do you want to be a little bit scared or a lot scared? :D I only read the ones that are little bit scary, like The Turn of the Screw or Dark Matter. These are kind of ghost stories.

.•*¨`*•✿ ✿•*¨`*•. Christine .•*¨`*•✿ ✿•*¨`*• Here's a couple suggestions for you...

Book set in the future - what about Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Makes you cry - The Fault in Our Stars

Based on or turned into a TV show - I've got 2 options on mine. Bitten or Outlander

Katie (ktmac_1) If you enjoy children's literature, I would start with the Newbery Award list. The winners and honors books would give you a great start for maybe filling in some of your more difficult topics to pick a book.

I just completed my list a few days ago. I tend to vary in the types of books that I read and like to choose when it comes time to read. But I also thought it would be motivating to have an idea of the great books I would read by sticking to the challenge. So I put together a list with a ton of options. Feel to look at mine for ideas :) https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Nicole A book that scares you: how about a classic - It
It doesn't have to be horror either. It can be a thriller. How about Piercing

Maria | 39 comments I have a few suggestions for you:)

a memoir - Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned"
a book set in the future – The Handmaid's Tale
a book set in high school - The S-Word, The Sky is Everywhere
a book with a color in the title – The Color Purple, The Silver Linings Playbook
a book with magic – Howl's Moving Castle (I really really recommend this book)
a book set during Christmas (or similar holiday) – A Christmas Carol
a book based on OR turned into a tv show – Pretty Little Liars, The Lying Game, A Game of Thrones, Gossip Girl

message 9: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Harris (nicoleintrovert) a book that was originally written in another language - If you like children's literature I highly recommend any of the Pippi Longstocking books by Astrid Lindgren (if your first language is not Swedish of course). Pippi Longstocking

a book set in high school - I just read All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven and it was phenomenal.

a book with magic - I am going to read The Night Circus for this one.

You're welcome:) I would be very interested in what you think about it. Out of all the books that I read in 2014, I rated 5* only two of them. Parallel is the second one.
