Word Games

If I ever hosted a challenge it would definitely be centered around titles. I think it makes it open to the most people, while also requiring a certain amount of creativity. You have freedom to choose length or genre, and whether or not you want to go out of your comfort zone.

For many reasons it will be a while before I host my own challenge, but looking at existing possibilities and also the books I hope to read this year has given me an idea for a personal challenge: to read five books with the same word in the title.

I have several books with “Joy” in the title, so by the end of the year I hope to have read:

1. Joy in the Morning, by Betty Smith

2. Joy Street, by Frances Parkinson Keyes

3. Five for Sorrow, Ten for Joy, by Rumer Godden

4. The Joy Luck Club, by Amy Tan

5. (TBD, perhaps a reread of Joy School, by Elizabeth Berg)
