Winter 2015 Book Challenge-The Prelims.

So this is either my second or third time attempting a Book Challenge, I'm hoping this time is the time I succeed :)

All of these books, except 1 are new reads to me! 

5 points: Read a book that has between 100 and 200 pages//The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans
10 points: Read a debut book by any author. (The book does not have to be a 2015 debut.)//True Spirit by Jessica Watson. 
10 points: Read a book that does not take place in your current country of residence//Second Honeymoon by James Patterson
10 points: Read a book that someone else has already used for the challenge. — Submitted by SCSBC15 finisher Kristen @ See You in a Porridge[Edited to add: The book must be at least 200 pages long.]// TBD
15 points: Read a book published under a pseudonym (e.g. Robert Galbraith, Sara Poole, J.D. Robb, Franklin W. Dixon, Mark Twain, etc.). — Submitted by SCSBC15 finisher Megan M.//Probably going to use the first book in J.D. Robb's In Death series for this! 
15 points: Read a book with “boy,” “girl,” “man” or “woman” in the title (or the plural of these words)//The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
15 points: Read a book with a one-word title (e.g. AttachmentsAmericanahUgliesWild, etc.)//Crank by Ellen Hopkins
20 points: Read a book with a person's first and last name in the title (e.g. The Storied Life of A.J. FikryThe Story of Edgar Sawtelle)//Lance Armstrong's War by Daniel Coyle
20 points: Read a food-themed book. — Submitted by SCSBC15 finisher Jamie @ Whatever I Think Of!//Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain.
20 points: Read a book with a verb in the title. (For any grammar nerds out there, I mean “verb” in the most general sense, so gerunds count. For non-grammar-inclined people, just use any book that appears to have a verb in the title!)//Save Me by Lisa Scottoline
30 points: Read two books with the same title (by different authors). — Submitted by SCSBC15 finisher bevchen @ Confuzzledom[Edited to add: The titles must be the SAME save for alternate spellings. For example, The Alchemist and Alchemist would be two different titles and would not work for the challenge, but The Alchemist and The Alchemyst would work.]//I just changed my mind at the last minute with these ones, but I'm going to go with The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks and The Guardian by Katie Klein, because my first pick one of the titles had a subtitle! The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks is the only one that will be a reread for me! 
30 points: Read a nonfiction book and a fiction book about the same subject (e.g. a biography and historical fiction novel about the same person; two books about a specific war or event; a nonfiction book about autism and a novel with a character who has autism, etc. The possibilities are endless!). [Edited to add: This one is very broad! Just have fun with it!]//Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn & The Deadly Game by Catherine Crier.  Same subject is going to be the disappearance of a loved one.
