2018 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge
This is my second year of participating in this challenge, hosted by Tanya at girlxoxo. Each month of the year is assigned a motif or theme. The task is to read one book per month that fits in with the assigned motifs. I think that this challenge will help me to perhaps read some stuff I may not have read otherwise. It’s a 12 book challenge, so it shouldn’t interfere with my other challenges.
Below are the 12 challenges for the year. I will post the book I read for each month at the end of each challenge:
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.
My book for this motif – The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas (January 31)
FEBRUARY – One Word
Read a book with a one word title.
My book for this motif – Wonder – R.J. Palacio (February 27)
MARCH – Travel the World
Read a book set in a different country than your own, written by an author from another country than your own, or a book in which the characters travel.
APRIL – Read Locally
Read a book set in your country, state, town, village (or has a main character from your home town, country, etc)
MAY- Book to Screen
Read a book that’s been made into a movie or a TV show.
JUNE- Crack the Case
Mysteries, True Crime, Who Dunnit’s.
JULY – Vacation Reads
Read a book you think is a perfect vacation read and tell us why.
AUGUST- Award Winners

DECEMBER- Wrapping It Up
