POPSUGAR Reading Challenge 2020 Update: Week Forty-One

Good morning, everyone! It’s been a pretty good, relatively quiet week. I’ve been doing a lot of writing this week, but I’ve also been pretty focused on my 31 Days of Bookmarks challenge. I’ve also been spending the evenings watching spooky movies for my annual Halloween Horror Movie-thon. These have both been a lot of fun so far this month. If you’d like to check out what I’ve been doing since October 1st, you can view all of my completed bookmarks and read my thoughts about individual movies on Twitter.

For this week’s POPSUGAR Reading Challenge update, we’re going to be focusing on the prompt “a book with a three-word title.” The book I chose for this particular prompt was Venom: Lethal Protector, by James R. Tuck. This book was a novelization of the Lethal Protector comic book series, and was a fast-paced story that I really enjoyed. If you’re interested in learning more about this book, please check out my “Happy Venom-tine’s Day” post from earlier this year.

If you’re currently looking for a book to complete this prompt, there are quite a few to choose from. Here are some of my suggestions of great reads that have a three-word title:

  • The Magisterium series (Holly Black and Cassandra Clare) — If you’re a fan of fantasy, or enjoy books that take place at magical schools, you’ll definitely want to check out this series.
    • The Iron Trial
    • The Copper Gauntlet
    • The Bronze Key
    • The Silver Mask
    • The Golden Tower
  • The Finishing School series (Gail Carriger) — These young adult novels take place at Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality, where the students not only learn how to behave properly in society, but also the arts of espionage and assassination.
    • Etiquette and Espionage
    • Curtsies and Conspiracies
    • Waistcoats and Weaponry
    • Manners and Mutiny
  • Through the Woods (Emily Carroll) — This graphic novel collection of creepy short stories is a great choice for the month of October.
  • The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins) — This young adult novel is the first book in Collins’s The Hunger Games trilogy.
  • The Anatomist’s Wife (Anna Lee Huber) — This is the first book of the Lady Darby Mysteries, which features a female artist whose knowledge of anatomy is a huge help when one of her fellow house guests is found murdered.
  • The Blue Sword (Robin McKinley) — If you’re interested in learning more about this wonderful young adult fantasy novel, please check out my post from back in May.
  • Get A Clue (Jill Shalvis) — If you enjoy mystery and romance, you’ll definitely enjoy this novel.
  • The City of Ghosts series (Victoria Schwab) — If you’re interested in learning more about these books, please check out my post from earlier this week.
    • City of Ghosts
    • Tunnel of Bones
  • At Wits’ End (Kirsten Weiss) — This is the first book in the At Wits’ End cozy mystery series, and features an amature sleuth who runs a UFO-themed bed and breakfast.

I thoroughly enjoyed all of these books, and would definitely recommend them, even if you’ve already completed the “a book with a three-word title” prompt. If you do have the opportunity to read any (or all) of these books, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Are you currently participating in the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge and looking for titles to complete a specific prompt? If so, please leave a comment on this post to let me know which prompts you would like to see me address. Next week, we will be talking about the prompt “a book that has a book on the cover.”

In the meantime, I hope you’ll come back to visit throughout the week for book reviews and other new content.

Have a wonderful weekend!
