Monthly Key Word Challenge

monthly key word challenge

Kim at Bookmark to Blog has chosen ten key words associated with each month in 2013. Your task is to read one book each month whose title includes one or more of the key words for that month. For instance, in January you might read Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah. 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 '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.'

* Link up at the challenge site (click above) to participate and add additional links any time you post about the challenge or post about a book you read for the challenge.
