Fight the Filthy Fly Month Challenge
Duration: June 6 thru July 5, 2017

When I think of June, I think of Weddings, Graduations, fun at the Beach or favorite swimming hole, but not Fight the Filthy Fly. Yes, June is also Fight the Filthy Fly Month. :p
So for this month, your challenge is to spell-out a insect/bug that gives you the creeps. :S Like June-bugs getting caught in your hair, maybe a daddy long-legs climbing up your arm, or a yellow-jacket wasp staring at you "eye to eye". ( gives me the slivers just thinking about it! )

Well, Happy Reading & Have Fun!

Challenge Rules

1. One book for each letter.
2. Your may use * the first letter of the first word of the book title (exclude a, an, or the )
Or * the initials of an author's first or last name,
Or * the initials of the main character's first or last name
3. All books must be 100 pages or more. Re-reads are allowed as long as you actually read the books. NO Skimming!
4. Add the date that you completed each book. Your rating is optional.
