Bout of Books – 4 Seasons Cover Challenge

Today’s challenge for Bout of Books is hosted by KimberlyFayeReads.  The challenge was to find four different book covers that each represent a different season in some way.

Meadow Green by Paul A. Witty and Alma Moore Freeland (spring)
The Dolphins of Pern by Anne McCaffrey (summer)
The Pillars of the World by Anne Bishop (autumn)
The Grand Crusade by Michael A. Stackpole (winter)

I didn’t realize until I started going through books for this challenge, but a number of my books either don’t seem to have a season or could be taken for spring, summer, and fall!

Bout of Books – Fictional World Travel Challenge

Hosted by Between Library Shelves, this is Monday’s challenge/giveaway for Bout of Books 14. The challenge is to list 3-6 books that take place in countries other than the one you live in.  So, since I live in America, I can’t use any books that take place there.

The books I’ve chosen are:

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry (WWII-era Denmark)
We by Yevgeny Zamyatin (Dystopian Russia/USSR)
Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel (Mexican Revolution-era Mexico)
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery (1900’s Canada)
Shogun by James Clavell (Alternate Warring States-era/Tokugawa-era Japan)
And Less than Kind by Mercedes Lackey and Roberta Gellis (Tudor-era England)

I highly recommend all of these books, by the way, if anyone’s looking for something new to read.
