Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Choose Your Own Adventure Reading Challenge 2018

Choose Your Own Adventure Reading Challenge 2018

For this challenge, read four (or multiples of four) books that contain a common plot element or other point of commonality. This would be a narrower focus than books that share a subgenre tag. How you interpret the challenge--and what commonality is shared by the books you choose--is completely up to you.

Check out the Five Books About... article feature on tor.com for some topic ideas. 

Some other examples and ideas to consider:

  • mythical creatures (mermaids, dragons, unicorns, etc.)
  • weird westerns
  • crime/detective
  • nautical/pirates
  • linguistics/language
  • ecology/climate
  • historical fantasies set in the same period
  • authors who only wrote one book
  • authors with the same first name
  • authors with zero award noms
  • same color cover art
  • science--physics, astronomy, chemistry, etc.
  • mathematics--arithmetic, probability theory, etc.
  • philosophy--axiology, metaphysics, ethics, etc.
  • altered states--drugs, virtual reality, augmented reality, etc.
  • aesthetics--art, music, books, theater, etc.
  • entertainment--games, movies, athletics, etc.

Have fun and good luck!

*Disclaimer: This challenge has absolutely nothing to do with the Choose Your Own Adventure book series... except the cover art.
