June 2017 Monthly Challenge - HERE COMES THE BRIDE
Begins: 01June17 / Ends: 30June17


June is traditionally known as the Month for Weddings. So our challenge is all about those happy occasions.

1. Something Borrowed - Read a book you borrowed (from library, from friend). Tell us from whom you borrowed the book.

2. Something Blue - Read a book with a predominantly (50%) BLUE cover.

3. Bride's Bouquet - Read a book with flowers on the cover - MORE than just a single bloom.

4. Wedding Cake - Read a book with any baked dessert item on the cover. (Though we prefer cake, we'll take any baked dessert item.)

5. Honeymoon - Read a book set in a location where you would honeymoon. Tell us the location and why you'd like to honeymoon there.


---------------------------------------------------------

Rules of the challenge
Books must be at least 100 pages in length
A book counts for only ONE task per challenge (but feel free to use it for other challenges ... in the past or in another group).
Re-reads are fine, as long as you actually read the entire book
Book should be finished within the time-frame of the challenge.
Any format ("dead tree," e-book, audio...) is fine.

If you want acknowledgement that you have completed the challenge you MUST include the date you finished reading each book.

As always, have fun!

Welcome to the challenge, Dosha!

Copy/paste the challenge tasks into your post above ... or start a new post.
Then each time you complete an item click the "EDIT" button for your post and update it with the book you read for that task.

When you've finished you can just post a new message saying you are done.

Have fun!

Stephany ... Great that one book fits so many tasks ... BUT ...

I'm going to revise the rules to specify that you can only use a book for ONE task per month, though you are welcome to use one book for multiple challenges .. for example another group's challenges. Or if we have more than one challenge going at the same time.

That's been our intention all along, just never explicitly stated.
