meet the protagonist challenge

Over at Litlequeen Rules there's an interesting challenge gearing up for 2014.  Meet the Protagonist gives us the type of protagonist we're looking for, in 8 different categories.  Rules are similar to other challenges.  The challenge runs from Jan 1, 2014 through Dec 31, 2014.  Everything except for anthologies and essay collections are allowed (self-published books are allowed too!) in any format.  Rereads count too!  You don't have to have a blog, but make sure to post your reviews somewhere.  You have to read at least one book from each category and each book can only be used in one category.  Crossovers from other challenges are okay.

Categories are:
  1. A woman who is a mother: Reconstructing Amelia - Kimberly McCreight
  2. A real life person who is written into a fictional story: The Serpent's Tale - Ariana Franklin (King Henry & Queen Eleanor & Rosamund)
  3. A person that changes forms: Pure - Julianna Baggott
  4. A person who is from a country different than the one you currently live in: Farm Fatale - Wendy Holden (takes place in England)
  5. A person who lived before WWI: Still Life - Louise Penny (Ruth & Jane were both born in the 1930's)
  6. A person who lives by a body of water: God-Shaped Hole - Tiffanie DeBartolo (Venice Beach)
  7. A person younger than 18: Wicked - Sara Shepard
  8. A character that is in a book series: The Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfus (Kingkiller series)
I'm kicking myself for reading the Nicholas Flamel series this year.  I could have used that one for #2!  That one's going to take some research I think!  Sign up to join me here.
