I have completed this challenge and paired it with the 2014 Monthly Motif Challenge. Though I have enjoyed it, I will not take part in 2015 if it is offered as I want to cut a wee bit down on my challenges and would rather try something new.
List of books after the challenge rules.
~ JANUARY 1, 2014 - DECEMBER 31, 2014 ~
Welcome to the 2nd Annual Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge! For this challenge I have chosen six key words associated with each month in 2014. Your task is to read one book each month whose title includes one or more of the key words for that month.
* 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 below to participate and add additional links any time you post about the challenge or post about a book you read for the challenge.
(Please read the linky instructions carefully)
* If you plan on participating, please sign up on the linky with your blog name and the words Sign Up (example: Bookmark to Blog Sign Up)
* Each month, by the 1st, I will post a new linky for you to add a link to your monthly read. This can be a link to your Goodreads review, your blog post about the book, etc. Your monthly link should say your blog name and the month. (Example: Bookmark To Blog January)
