Extravagant Journeys: A 2015 Reading Challenge

A beloved bibliophile pal of mine shared this categorically-unique reading challenge with me.   Should you choose to accept this mission, you might read books that feature non-human characters, sport a one-word title, are in the "classic romance" genre (I'm presuming that means something along the lines of Jane Eyre or Pride & Prejudice.  I don't think my vintage set of Sweet Valley High books would qualify), and a book based on a true story.  

You could also choose from the bottom of your to-read list. For those of us on GoodReads who add books to that particular shelf on a daily basis, you might have a title that has been there since 2012.  Okay, so I have days on which I add titles on an hourly basis.  You caught me.

I'm going to take a deep breath and plunge into this challenge.  Might you be interested, dear reader?  Please let me know.  I'm not here to debate complex questions like, "What if there is a book that is a one-word title, based on a true story, and is 100 years old?  Does that count for all three?".  That is entirely up to you.  In addition, the form of the book makes no never mind to me--e-book, Kindle, audio, or good old-fashioned hardcover--whatever floats your boat.  

"You have everything needed for the extravagant journey that is your life, " says Carlos Castaneda.   

So, here's to the extravagant journeys upon which we will embark as we turn the pages in 2015.  It's like Forrest's box of chocolates--you never know what you're gonna get.
