2014 Monthly Keyword Challenge

Another great challenge hosted by Bookmark to Blog! Her challenges are so much fun and aren't concerned about how much you can read. This challenge gives multiple words for each month, and you find a book that has one of these words in the title! The title can also have a variation of the word in it; for example: snowing or snowflake, even though the word is "snow". I may be looking forward to her two challenges the most! (: Again, I'll be posting the books that go with this challenge on this post!

As time has passed this year, I decided that I wasn't going to concentrate so much on making sure a specific word was read in a specific month. Instead, I'm going to link up books that I've read that correspond with a month, even if it wasn't read during that month. It just makes it a lot easier for me and then I don't feel like I'm failing each month (:

  1. This challenge sounds like a lot of fun! I just did the basic challenges this year, TBR, goodreads, and a sequels challenge. Only because I didn't really do great on any of my challenges last year so I wanted to keep it simple, and it would be nice to see my TBR pile go down just a little bit. :)

    1. That's what I did last year, and even though I didn't do great at them, I thought I'd spice things up a bit. But my main goal is just to get my TBR pile down! Good luck to you with yours (:
