TLC Reading The Seasons - Spring

The Lost Challenges discussion on goodreads

Read books for each task listed. Some (but not all) tasks will have opportunities to collect bonus points. 

You can read one book for every task or read multiple books for some tasks. (For example - you could choose to just focus on task 5 and read books with flowers on the covers. That's fine - you can claim points for each one that fits). 


*Each book may only be used for one task. (For example, you might read a book that is set in March, with an Irish character - you can count this book for task 2 OR 8 but not both)
*For each book that you read please post a link to the book, the author and the date you finished it.
* Where more than one option is given for a task, please state which option your book relates to.
*Please explain briefly how your book fits a task.
*If the task relates to the cover of your book, please post the cover.
*All genres and formats are fine.
*Re-reads are allowed.
*No page minimum.
*Please update your original post as you go but also post an occasional message to let us know how you're getting on, if you would like to.
*When you have finished please re-post your whole challenge as a new message or we will not be able to award your Hall of Fame badge! 

The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible by the end of the quarter.

SCORING: Score 1 point for each book read that fits a task plus 2 points for each bonus task.


TASK: Read a book set in USA (Bonus: set in Florida)

You read a book set in New York = 1 point for USA : Total 1 point

You read a book set in Florida = 1 point for USA + 2 points for Florida: Total 3 points

Please keep a record of your points at the top of your post.

The highest scorer at the end of the challenge will get a 'Champion' badge.

All players who score at least 5 points will be awarded a 'Reading The Seasons' badge.
