Opposites Attract Challenge

Look at this fun challenge! I found it at Jen's Book Talk. To play just read books that have at least one word in the title opposite to another book title's word. You can only use a book once though; not in 2 different sets. And be sure to use some of these with your other challenges if you can! (ex: salt, pepper - good, bad - this, that, - angry, happy - angel, devil - empty, full.) Click here or on the button above to go to Jen's for the rest of the guideline>

I won't make a list ahead of time. Instead I'll just list as I go. I am shooting for 10 matches this year. My opposites:

1. Hold Tight by Harlen Coban
Three Weeks to Say Goodbye by C. J. Box

2. Fire Me by Libby Malin
Wild Rain by Christine Feehan

3. Call after Midnight by Tess Gerritsen
8. Snow Angels by James Thompson
9. Master of None by Sonya Bateman
10. Below Zero by C.J. Box
Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich
All of my 2010 Challenges are listed here.

Monthly Mixer Mele

Since I have finished all my challenges for 2009 I thought I might start a new one a little early. this is it: Monthly Mixer Mele hosted by Jen's Book Talk.

Rules right from Jen's Book Talk:
All you have to do is read a book that begins with a letter of each month or read a book that begins with the authors name (first or last name, doesn’t matter). There are 74 letters so you will have to have 74 different books to complete the challenge. Books can however be used to complete other challenges.You don’t have to do the months in any kind of order, just fill in books as you go along until you have each letter a book by it.Challenge begins November 1, 2009 and ends November 2, 2010 so you have a whole year to complete! Lets break out them books and get busy!
