for option 1 purple bookcover: One Real Thing by Anah Crow
for option 5 fantasy/paranormal: Secret Desires (Tri-Omega Mates, #1) by Stormy Glenn


25.5 - Christine US's task: U.S. Patriots

Book 1: My Patriot
Holiday Confessions by Anne Marie Winston. According to wikipedia, she was born in PA.

Book 2: Cut & Run. Ty is an ex-Marine.

25.6 - Gayla's task: European Landmarks
choose 2

1. The Louvre is one of the great art museums of the world. To visit it, read a book about art history, a biography of an artist, or a novel that features an artist as a major character. For the purposes of this task, an "artist" is defined as a visual artist who creates a type of art that could plausibly be part of a Louvre exhibit (i.e., a painter, photographer, or sculptor would work). These lists might help (but, as with all GR lists, be sure the book you pick actually fits the task. If you're unsure, ask.) - Art & Artists in Fiction, Art in Books
Option 2. Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol
3. To visit The Leaning Tower of Pisa, read a book about math, a biography of a mathematician, or a novel that features math in some way. Examples: An Abundance of Katherines, A Beautiful Mind: The Life of Mathematical Genius and Nobel Laureate John Nash
4. The Cologne Cathedral is one of the largest and most beautiful churches in the world. Visit it by reading a book about religious history, a biography of a religious leader, or a novel that features a religious institution or a religious leader. (Note that although the cathedral is Christian, a book about any religion will work for this task.) Examples: Gilead, Faith: A Novel, Light Fell
5. Stonehenge is a mysterious prehistoric stone monument. To visit Stonehenge, read a work of non-fiction about or a novel set in the ancient world. Note that although Stonehenge is believed to have been erected about 2500 BCE, for the purposes of this task, I am defining "ancient" as any time before 1 CE. Example: The Gift of Stones
6. Peace Palace, in the Netherlands, houses the International Court of Justice and is considered the seat of international law. To visit the Peace Palace, read a book that features international relations in some way: for example, a military history, a biography of a world leader, or a spy novel. Example: The Translator

Required: Identify the options you chose and how your books relate to the task
