Liz Loves Books made a post over this way asking about potential challenges we could do in future venues. My mind's being random today and I don't have a fancy gif for it (yet, but I could try to make one - or if someone is more artistically inclined, they can try), but would anyone be interested in doing a challenge like this? I'm coming up with the prompts ahead of time so that it can be spelled out, but I thought it would be cool do do something of a 30 Day Book Playlist Challenge. I'm a lover of music of many genres (go figure) so this is something I'm probably going to challenge myself to over the next 30 Days if all goes well.
Day 1: Name a favorite book with a rebellious character or a character that does something against the status quo (Punk)
Day 2: Name a book(s) you've read that make you think of one of the seven deadly sins (Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Envy, Pride, Sloth, and Wrath) (Irish punk - or really just a Flogging Molly song that came to mind when thinking of this prompt: =P)
Day 3: Name a book you've read that you loved that's well known, OR a book that you've read - like or dislike - that it seems everyone talks about. (Pop)
Day 4: Name a book that you've read that you love, but not a lot of people talk about. Or it can be your "Best Kept Secret" book. (Indie)
Day 5: Name a favorite book you've read featuring a musician as a main or side character. If you can't think of any, a book with a musical theme or that was based on a musical is good too.
Day 6: Name a book that hurt you to read, but was so, so good. (Blues)
Day 7: Name a book that you consider a slow burner, but had strong emotions behind it. (Ballad)
Day 8: Name a book which shares a name with a song you know or love.
Day 9: Name a favorite book, and think of a book soundtrack for it. Name as many songs as you want to put with that book's soundtrack.
Day 10: Name a guilty pleasure or mindless read that you loved. (Bubblegum Pop)
Day 11: Name a book set within a holiday. (Carol)
Day 12: Name a book that you've read or want to read based in a foreign country. (World)
Day 13: Name five books that you're looking forward to reading or those that excite you in some way. (Dance/Electronica)
Day 14: Think of a song you know and love, and do the reverse of Day 9: Assign books to that song. =P
Day 15: Name book(s) that you've read or loved set in the 18th - 19th centuries. (Classical)
Day 16: Name a book you've read that's humored or light in tone, but at the same time quite dark. If you can't think of any, a book with a dark thematic will suffice. (Dark ambient)
Day 17: Name a book you've read with a hero/heroine who is either poor or from a lower background in status/society. May be someone who remains in that class or aspires to greater living. (Folk)
Day 18: Name 5 books that are on your mind right now. Seriously, just do it. (Freestyle)
Day 19: Name a book you've read that's either with a specific religion as a focus or something with a heavy moral/social issue in its backdrop.
Day 20: Name a book you've read that has multiple genres or cross-genre appeal. (Fusion)
Day 21: Name a book you've read that was dramatic or angst-ridden. (Emo)
Day 22: Name a book with a tortured hero/heroine. (Grunge)
Day 23: Name a book that you enjoyed, but read through quickly without really thinking about it. (Ska)
Day 24: Name a book that you loved written from multiple perspectives or book that emphasized a particular group of characters or family. (Jazz)
Day 25: Name a book you've read in the past that still remains with you today. (Old School)
Day 26: Name a book that you would like to see turn into a musical (or one that would seem fun as a musical).
Day 27: Name a book that blew your mind. (Rock or Heavy Metal)
Day 28: Name a book with a nostalgic or feeling of home. (Country)
Day 29: Name a book you've read that was all kinds/levels of weird - good or bad. (Stoner Rock)
Day 30: Choose a genre/theme day! Choose among any of the aforementioned music genres (or feature a genre that hasn't been mentioned) and list a prompt and book under that theme. This is so that people can get creative with both the books they choose and/or a musical style they may like. (Experimental)
