Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge

My third and final Book Challenge with GirlXOXO - Kim and Tanya!

Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge



Here's the scoop:

HOW IT WORKS

~ This is a monthly challenge that runs all year long from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
~ Six “key words” are given for each month. Your task is to read 1 book that includes one or more of the key words in the title.
~ 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’. 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.’ Use your best judgement and have fun with it!
~ Please link back to Girlxoxo, Tanya, or Kim any time you post about the challenge on your blog so that we can follow along with your progress!!
~ If you post what you’ve read to social media please use the hashtag #MonthlyKeyWordGXO .
~ New This Year: A check in post will be published at the end of each month where you can see what we read for the challenge and comment with the book you chose and a link to your review.
