Cleopatra Loves Books did this post and I thought it was so much fun, I challenged myself to try and see if I could fill up my own card for the 2016 year!
Since I just found out about this one recently, I purposely didn’t treat this like a challenge by finding books to fit the squares throughout the year. I just looked to see what I read this year already that just fit!
Let’s see how I did…..
A Book With More Than 500 Pages: The Chemist by Stephanie Meyers. This one came in at 512 pages. My review is here.
A Forgotten Classic: NOT COMPLETED
A Book That Became a Movie: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. This book re-swept the nation when the movie released this fall. I still have not watched the film and I’m not sure if I ever will. I have some serious book to film adaptation trust issues.
A Book Published This Year: The Gift by Louise Jensen. My review is here.
A Book With A Number In The Title: Wrong Number by Carys Jones. This one is maybe cheating a little. But it asked for a number; it didn’t state it had to be numerical for sure! My full review is here.
A Book Written by Someone Under Thirty: The Girls by Emma Cline
A Book With Non-Human Characters: The Girl with the Gifts by MR Carey. This book has some human characters, but the children are zombies so it counts! My review is here.
A Funny Book: Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick
A Book By A Female Author: Marrow by Tarryn Fisher

A Book With A Blue Cover: The Vanishing Year by Kate Moretti. I loved this one. Check out my full review here.
I was able to fill in every square but one! Not bad…it’s technically not my fault that I don’t read any classics. I truly was set up for failure!
How about you? How much of the card could you fill in? Please share!
