September challenge - Count your titles challenge

Duration - September

This month's challenge is to read between one and six books which have a certain number of words in the title.
(Hard original challenge - see below for the easy variation)

Ideally start with one word and work upwards towards six words. As an alternative if you are doing fewer than six books you could start at, say three words and do three books with three, four and five words in the title. You can include a, the, and etc if you choose!

All books should be PNR/UF or related genres if at all possible!!

The full challenge:
1. One word title
2. Two word title
3. Three word title
4. Four word title
5. Five word title
6. Six word title

If you want to read fewer books simply choose your starting point and work upwards for however many books you want to include in the challenge.

Eg - to do a three book challenge

You can start at any number from one to four.
Say
4. Four word title
5. Five word title
6. Six word title
OR
2. Two word title
3. Three word title
4. Four word title

I'm sure you get the drift!!

EDIT: your number of words in the titles should be consecutive! ie 123 or 2345 if you are doing less than six books!

EDIT #2 - for an EASY variation it is acceptable if you want to read six books to read two books each with 1,2 and 3 words in the title. (Easy only becasue there are so many books with 1,2 or 3 word titles!!!) ONLY AVAILABLE IF DOING SIX BOOKS

Any queries give me a shout!!

EDITED REPLY:

Hum, not really exactly what I had in mind.... BUT if you're only doing 1,2 and 3 word titles and want to do 6 books then two of each is an acceptable alternative. But try to come up with all the different number of words in the titles first if you can.

Only use the variation if you're doing six books, 2 each with 1,2 and 3 word titles. = EASY challenge. (Easy only becasue there are so many books with 1,2 or 3 word titles!!!)

HARD challenge = six books with titles of 1 up to 6 words - original challenge

I know the 5 and 6 word titles especially are harder to come up with - but that's part of the challenge! I've only just come up with the 6 word title myself!!
