Here's another one! I like reading for a theme so this will be just right for me.
JANUARY 1, 2017 – DECEMBER 31, 2017 ~
This is the 2017 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge! For this challenge, each month is assigned a motif or theme. Our task is to read one book per month that fits in with the assigned motifs…
JANUARY – Diversify Your Reading
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.
FEBRUARY – Undercover Thriller
Read a book involving spies, detectives, private investigators, or a character in disguise. I read "A Fierce Radiance" by Lauren Belfer - 3/24/2017.
MARCH – Time TravelerRead a book set in a different dimension, a book in which time travel is involved or a dystopian or science fiction book where reality looks very different than what we’re used to. "Ever My Love" by Lynn Kurland - 4/5/2017.
