For this challenge, read four (or multiples of four) books that contain a common plot element.  This would be a narrower focus than books that share a subgenre tag.   How you interpret the challenge – and what commonality is shared by the books you choose – is completely up to you.  Good luck and have fun!

 

NOTE: This challenge runs from Jan - Dec 2018. The 2017 challenge will be ongoing through July.

Hi

So I decided to join again this year. Anyone looking at my list of books will probably be able to work out quite easily that my theme is 'music'.
