April Monthly Challenge

7 Comments

This is another challenge I am participating in over at the Crazy Challenge Connection message board on goodreads.com.


Using the letters in the month of “April”, read a book that corresponds to each letter. You may use the first letter of the title, the first letter of the author’s first name, or the first letter of the author’s last name. As a bonus, read a book with “April” in the title, or a book with a main character named “April” (spelling does not have to be exact).


The challenge runs from April 1, 2012 through April 30, 2012. If anyone would like to join me in completing this challenge just leave me a note in the comments. I’d love to have some more friends joining in.


So, here is my list of books for April.



A – Animal Farm by George Orwell


P – Push by Sapphire – read 4/8. read my review here.


R – Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe


I – In Cold Blood by Truman Capote


L – Lord of the Flies by William Golding


Bonus: undecided
