PopSugar Reading Challenge Update!

Here are the titles I've added in the past three weeks (I hosted a Stacking the Shelves one week and then forgot to update last week):
The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson is a book set somewhere that I've always wanted to visit (London)!

Modern Crochet: Crochet Accessories and Projects for Your Home by Molla Mills is a book originally written in another language (Finnish)!

The Map of the Sky by Felix J. Palma is a book with more than 500 pages.

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand is a book that became a movie.

How (Not) to Fall in Love by Lisa Brown Roberts is a book published this year.

Perfect Puppy in 7 Days: How to Start Your Puppy Off Right by Sophia Yin is a book with a number in the title.

Inheritance by Christopher Paolini is a book written by someone under 30.

The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 22: 1993-1994 by Charles M. Schulz is a book with nonhuman characters.

CraftFail: When Homemade Goes Horribly Wrong by Heather Mann is a funny book.

Where She Went by Gayle Forman is a book with a female author.

The Bookman's Tale by Charlie Lovett is a mystery or thiller.

Ink by Amanda Sun is a book with a one-word title.

Napoleon's Pyramids by William Dietrich is a book set in another country.

Mint Juleps With Teddy Roosevelt by Mark Will-Weber is a nonfiction book.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is a popular author's first book.

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor is a book by an author I love that I haven't read yet.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige is a book that a friend recommended.

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd is a book that scared me.

Don't Give Up, Don't Give In: Lessons From an Extraordinary Life by Louis Zamperini is a memoir.

The Red Deaths by Casey Eanes with Seth Ervin is a book that I can finish in a day.

Loop by Karen Akins is a book set in the future.

Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver is a book set in high school.

The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes is a book by an author I've never read before.

The Maker Movement Manifesto: Rules for Innovation in the New World of Crafters, Hackers, and Tinkerers by Mark Hatch is a book written by an author with my same initials.

And I'm currently reading The Time Fetch by Amy Herrick and Tears of the Giraffe by Alexander McCall Smith, which are books that don't satisfy any of my remaining checklist items.  Ones that I don't have a book lined up for:  "a classic romance" (recommendations for a romance without extended bedroom descriptions?), "a book of short stories," "a book based on a true story," "a book that made you cry" (I usually actively avoid these; any recommendations?), "a book with magic" (this is harder than I thought; lots of great fantasy out there, but they don't often contain straight up magic: recommendations welcome), and "a book that takes place in your hometown" (I've decided to claim the greater Greenville, SC area as my "hometown," as that's where I grew up:  South Carolinians: any recommendations?)  Thank you!

As always, feel free to comment with any suggestions for the remaining checklist items!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
