Monthly Key Word Challenge 2015

I randomly stumbled upon this challenge when browsing some Top Ten Tuesday lists and decided to opt in! Basically, the idea is to read one book per month that contains at least one of the 6 words host Bookmark to Blog has set for that month. It’s a not a huge time commitment–which is great–and it’s quite flexible!

The Challenge (Hosted by Bookmark to Blog):

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge! For this challenge I have chosen six key words associated with each month in 2015. Your task is to read one book each month whose title includes one or more of the key words for that month.

The Rules:

  • The title you choose can be a variation on one of the key words. For example- your title could include the word ‘snowing’ or ‘snowflake’ even though the key word is ‘snow.’
  • Key words can be tweaked. For example- You could read “Cinder” or “Ashes” for the key word ‘Fire’ and that would be just fine. If the key word is ‘family’ then your title could include the word ‘sister’ or ‘mother.’If the key word is ‘food’ then your title could include the word ‘cake.’
