Protagonists And Rewind!

 I share the company of two other fine, creative, women launching brand new themes this year!  Please join me in welcoming ‘Joanne’ in the south and ‘Bree’, a fellow Canadian!  I admire their ideas.  Prizes certainly won’t be unavailable to Canada.  ;)  Choose a book for the following 8 topics.


•  A mother.
•  A real life person written into a fictional story.
•  A person or character who changes forms.
•  A person from a country different than yours.
•  A person who lived before WW1.
•  A person who lives by a body of water.
•  A person younger than 18.
•  A character in a book series.

Then Came Two Women”  Charlotte Armstrong  1962
“The Tale Of Oat Cake Crag”  Susan Wittig Albert  2010
The Ghost & The Dead Deb”  Alice Kimberly  2005

* Joanne, thanks a million for joining some of my challenges.  I’m glad you created your word games too, which have been a whole lot of fun!  I will use “The Tale Of Oat Cake Crag” for category two.  I finished all 8 books weeks ago!  It was mere matter of writing reviews ~ and here we have them.



 If this theme is similar to “Dusty Bookshelf” 2013, it’s about reading something you want, more than sticking to what you have owned.  I believe you can purchase books you have your eye on.  They merely must be published before 2014.  You are entered for a monthly prize, based on how many reviews you link!

    Thanks for joining the challenge Carolyn! I will be adding your color challenge but I haven’t gotten around to doing a post yet!!

    • Is that “colour” without a U? ;) I knew you love word games! I hope guests of “What’s In A Name” (with 2/5 subjects like mine!) and “Lucky 14” head this way. It doesn’t get more flexible than this.

  2. Bree says:

    Ah, so good to meet a fellow Canadian reader and blogger! :) So glad to have you join the 2014 Rewind Challenge! You are correct in your guess that you can buy books for the challenge – it’s mostly to challenge ourselves to step back and stop reading all the shiny new books coming out and focus on the ones that we were SO excited about but somehow missed along the way! :)

  3. JoAnne Isgro says:

    I have one exception to your choices for my challenge….who is the real life protagonist in that story? A person that is mentioned does not qualify.
