Monthly Key Word Challenge 2018

This one is now at  My Reader's Block.

Over the last several years I have participated in the Monthly Key Words Challenge. It started with Kim at Bookmark to Blog and more recently was hosted by Claudia at My Soul Called Life. Claudia's blog has disappeared and I tried to contact her through Goodreads to see if she had changed blogs and/or if she planned to host the challenge again. I've gotten no response and have decided to host a version of the challenge myself. And so, here is the 2018 version of the challenge....

Your task is to read at least one book each month whose title includes one or more of the key words for that month. For instance, in January you might read Mystery in White by J. Jefferson Farjeon. The key words are listed below.


* The title you choose can be a variation on one of the key words. For example- your title could include the word 'icicle'
 or 'icing' even though the key word is 'ice.'

*Key words can be tweaked. For example- You could read a book with "Bowler" or "Bonnet" for the key word 'Hat' and that would be just fine. If the key word is 'Family' then your title could include the word 'Sister' or 'Father.'If the key word is 'Food' then your title could include the word 'Cake.'
