Read a Book with a Title that is Only One Word
A picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes you only need one. This month, we have collected a list of books that make the most of their pithy titles. One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence, One Word From Sophia by Jim Averbeck, and One by One by Ruth Ware don’t actually fit this prompt, but they do have the right idea in mind.
We are looking forward to a year full of challenging new reads with you!
The rest of this year’s challenges are listed below with links, when possible, to suggestions that can fulfill them.
Read a book first published in the year you were born.
Read a book with a title that is only one word.
Read a book that is the first in a series.
Read a book, fiction or non-fiction, about a historical figure.
