2014 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge - Finished

2014 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge hosted by Bookmark To Blog.

I have completed this challenge and paired it with the 2014 Monthly Key Word Challenge. As with the Key Word challenge I have enjoyed it but 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.
