Another one I enjoy doing is up now.  Go here to sign up.

Welcome to the 5th Annual Monthly Keyword Reading Challenge!
How does this challenge work?
For this challenge, I have chosen six keywords associated with each month in 2017. Your task is to read one book each month whose title includes one or more of the keywords for that month. Simple right?
Challenge Guidelines
  • This challenge will run from January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017
  • You can join anytime before December 31, 2017
  • Books must be read and reviewed in 2017
  • You don’t have to be a book blogger to participate! You can track your progress on Goodreads, Shelfari, Booklikes, etc.
  • The book title you choose can be a variation on one of the keywords. Meaning, you can tweak the keywords. For example, your title could include the word ‘snowing’ or ‘snowflake’ even though the key word is ‘snow.’ Further, if the key word is ‘family‘ then your title could include the word ‘sister’ or ‘mother.’ It’s similar to the word game Word Association.
  • Link up below to participate linking your post, Goodreads shelf, Shelfari, Booklies, etc.
  • Lastly, have fun! This challenge is simply for the pure satisfaction of reading so please don’t worry if you have to skip a month or if you have to read your books out of order!
