I'm joining another challenge!
I saw this challenge posted on Sue's blog, Book by Book, and it got me thinking about joining. So, now that it's the weekend and I had time to research the challenge, I'm in! Kimberly Lynn at Girlxoxo hosts this challenge and here are the monthly motifs:
Kick the reading year off right and shake things up. Read a book with a character (or written by an author) of a race, religion, or sexual orientation other than your own. In January I read The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui, which is set in Vietnam and the author is Vietnamese (I posted in February, but read it in January).
Read a book with a one word title. This month I read Patina by Jason Reynolds.
MARCH – Travel the World
Read a book set in a different country than your own, written by an author from another country than your own, or a book in which the characters travel.
APRIL – Read Locally
Read a book set in your country, state, town, village (or has a main character from your home town, country, etc)
MAY- Book to Screen
Read a book that’s been made into a movie or a TV show.
JUNE- Crack the Case
Mysteries, True Crime, Who Dunnit’s.
JULY – Vacation Reads
Read a book you think is a perfect vacation read and tell us why.
AUGUST- Award Winners

SEPTEMBER- Don’t Turn Out The Light
Cozy mystery ghost stories, paranormal creeptastic, horror novels.

Books where family dynamics play a big role in the story
DECEMBER- Wrapping It Up
