DHASG March 2016 Challenge

Introduction: March is here. Spring is around the corner, but we still have a little bit more winter to enjoy! May we encounter lovely books this month!

Rules:


1. Any DHASG member can participate in the challenge.
2. Books must be read between March 1st and March 31st.
3. A book may only be used once for this challenge.
4. Post or link to your final stats when you are completed.
5. In your stats, list book name, title and date read. Unless obvious, include why you choose a certain book in parentheses in your stats.

Levels:

1. Under the Book Rainbow: Read 9-12 books.
2. Book Pot O' Gold: Read 5-8 books.
3. Four-Leaf Book: Read 3-4 books.

Categories
:

1.March Has Two Faces: Like March comes in with lots of winter storms and ends with a gentle breeze of spring, people can evolve over the course of their lives. Read a book where the lead character undergoes such an evolution.
2.The Green, the White and the Orange: These are the colors of the Irish flag. March is Irish American Heritage Month. Read a book with a lead or prominent character of Irish descent, related to Irish culture or set in Ireland. You can read a book with the colors of the Irish flag on the cover, but it must have some other aspect of Irish culture as a theme.
3.Her Story!: March is National Women's History Month. Let's celebrate the story of women in America by reading a book with a strong female character or a woman lead who is a trailblazer in her own way.
4.I Want You To Be Happy Day: March 3rd is a day where we want the best for someone else and do something to facilitate making them happy. Read a book where a prominent character does something for the good of another character with unselfish motives.
5.Anthropomorphic Fallacy Day: The actual name of the holiday celebrated on March 3rd is If Pets Had Thumbs Day. For this day, read a book where an animal character has human traits, either in their ability to talk and reason in the way of human or physically. Yes, animal shifters count.
6.Hug a GI Day: If you know or meet any GIs on March 4th, by means do hug them. But you can also celebrate military armed forces personnel by reading a book where a lead character is in the military or was at some point.
7.(Don't) Be Nasty Day: March 8th is a day we shouldn't celebrate, because there is no reason to be mean or cruel to others. Let's not celebrate by reading a book with a really nasty villain or antagonist.
8.Don't Panic: On March 9th, which is Panic Day, we'll channel our fears and anxiety into our reading. Read a suspense novel with lots of tension and thrills. Romantic suspense or otherwise.
9.Plant a Flower Day: March 12th is a day to celebrate gardening and flora of all kinds. Read a book with flower(s) on the cover, or with a lead character who gardens for a profession on leisure or is a landscaper or florist.
10.Everything You Think is Wrong Day: March 15th recognizes that everyone has a bad day. Read a book where the lead character has a bad day but comes out of it triumphant.
11.Will You Marry Me?: Proposal Day is March 20th, the day to make proposals. Any book where a lead character receives or gives a proposal of marriage during the book counts.
12.Reading Rainbow: Like the rainbow has many colors that compose it, there are numerous choices of days to round out this challenge. Pick one of the follow days to represent in this category: Extraterrestrial Abductions Day, Good Friday, Easter, National Goof Off Day, Near Miss Day, Make Up Your Own Holiday Day.
