So, I am on the hunt for some fun reading challenges in 2013. I didn't do any specific challenges this year (other than my Goodreads goal of at least 50 books--WIN!), but I want to get back into doing some next year.
The first one that caught my eye was the Monthly Keyword Challenge, hosted by Bookmark to Blog.
Each month, you have to read a book that covers one of the possible keywords assigned for the month, which you can find HERE.
I am going to participate, and here's the list of books I'm thinking about reading so far, based on the keywords. (Bonus: these are all from my TBR pile at home, so it will also help me with the TBR challenges I am planning to do!!) I underlined the keyword in each title.
January: Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio, or Devil In The White City by Erik Larson
February: Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
March: At The Mercy of the Mountains by Peter Bronski
April: The Cider House Rules by John Irving, or Jordan Freeman Was My Friend by Richard White
May: The World According to Garp by John Irving, or The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
June: East of the Sun by Julia Gregson
July: Any of my Chicken Soup for the Soul books...I have several
August: The Drowning Tree by Carol Goodman
September: The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs
October: Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
November: The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper, or The Last Juror by John Grisham
December: The Road Ahead by Bill Gates
Fun challenge! Who else is in?
