monthly key 2018

Monthly Keyword Challenge
Duration: January 1, 2018-December 31, 2018


I participated in Kim's challenge on her site for a few years. I thought it would be a fun challenge for us. There are many other challenges out on the internet.

You must read 12 books - one each month - to participate in this challenge.
Do not read ahead.
You may read more than one book each month, if you like.

For this challenge I have chosen five key words associated with each month.
Your task is to read one book each month whose title includes
one or more of the key words for that month.

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.'
If the word is singular, you may use a plural.

Keywords

January: early girl house thief young
February: lies love red strange us
March: beautiful green heart luck you
April: after flower good my pink
May: glass his many one what
June: game lilac up water wedding
July: always blue in light summer
August: life name silver that woman
September: first gold lovely past sweet
October: brown ghost last next wild
November: chill gray home short truth
December: Christmas long snow white year

Challenge Rules
*For each book that you read please post a link to the book, the author and the date you finished it.
*Each book may only be used for one task or letter
*To count a book towards a challenge you must read the majority of it after the start date of the challenge.
* Where more than one option is given for a task, please state which option your book relates to.
*If the task relates to the cover of your book, please post the cover AND the book link.
*All genres and formats are fine.
*Re-reads are allowed.
*No page minimum.
*Please update your original post as you go.

*When you have finished, please re-post your whole challenge as a new message and MARK AS FINISHED or you will not be considered to have completed the challenge and we will not be able to award your Hall of Fame badge

(Even if you don't hit the level you were aiming for by the deadline, please re-post your challenge anyway as you may still be eligible for a lower level badge.)

Please use the TLC STANDARD RULES when participating in this challenge.
If you are not familiar with these rules, please click on the link and read them over.

Monthly Keyword Challenge
Duration:

Progress: 3 out of 12

I participated in Kim's challenge on her site for a few years. I thought it would be a fun challenge for us. There are many other challenges out on the internet.

You must read 12 books - one each month - to participate in this challenge.
Do not read ahead.
You may read more than one book each month, if you like.

For this challenge I have chosen five key words associated with each month.
Your task is to read one book each month whose title includes
one or more of the key words for that month.

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.'
If the word is singular, you may use a plural.
