    • I’m not going to lie, I like yours way better too. I’ve been debating switching over all night.

      #11 on this list (A Book That’s Becoming a Movie This Year) is about the only item I’m actually looking forward to. #24 (A Book With a Protagonist Who Has Your Occupation) should have been written like yours, with the option of an occupation you like. #41 (A Book That’s Guaranteed to Bring You Joy) is just crazy..

    • Hi Jamie! There are so many good challenges, I’ve had a hard time choosing.

      I didn’t sign up for literary loners because I would be finding all of the characters by accident (through reading the book for another challenge) rather than searching specifically for books with loner-type characters. I feel like this is cheating as my selections wouldn’t be deliberate or with the intention of meeting this challenge. Not sure your take on this though! 🙂
