Challenge criteria: A retelling of a classic
Everyone wants that special someone….
Annie Higgins has given up on love: she’s too busy trying to get her tiny business off the ground. Infuriated by the advertising agency across the hall making fun of her job, Annie accepts their crazy challenge – to make a random stranger Instagram-famous in just thirty days.
And even when they choose Dr Samuel Page PhD, historian and hater of social media, as her target, Annie’s determined to win the bet – whether Sam likes it or not.

How many of us have a bookish boyfriend or girlfriend? The character you wish you could reach into the pages, pull out, and take to Pizza Hut? I think we’ve all got that special someone in there who ignited our love of reading in a slightly different way.
As usual, Steph has only given us six slots to fill. It isn’t enough, as ever, but I’ve done my best. There are so many more I could have fit in. Have I included any of your heart throbs?
2018 Challenge Criteria: A book from a celebrity book club
Two people. Ten chances. One unforgettable love story.
Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there’s a moment of pure magic… and then her bus drives away.

Even though I can be quite cynical at times, I do like a good love story. When I ship a couple, you best believe I ship them hard. There are some couples from books that I will stand behind for the rest of my life. My choices come from across a wide range of reading genres and age groups, maybe your OTP is in here too?

Last week Steph asked us to list our bookish faves, but this week the tables have flipped a little. This time we’re talking about the aspects of books we’re not so keen on. Just like last week, I could go on and on. There are a couple of things that really grind my gears when I notice them in books. These are just some of the things I’d like to see less of in literature.
