2018 Reading Rainbow

Pick a month, then pick a color or colors that remind you of the month. For example, in July, one may usually think RED, WHITE, and BLUE. So we will be given a choice to read a book that is with a predominately red, white, or blue cover (at less 75%); or you can just pick one color for the month/examples will be given.

January (Tessa) Silver, Blue, White
February (Diana S) Red - Pink
March (Bethany) Green - Pastel Colors (lavender, light blue, pale yellow, etc)
April (Amberly) Pink - Purple - Yellow
June (Amber) Yellow, Green, Blue
October (Linda C) orange, black, white

Pick a month and give us an object on the cover that reminds you for that month. For example, December, it could remind you of Christmas trees. So we would read a book with a Christmas Tree(s) on the cover/examples will be given.

January - promising to get healthy by starting an exercise program - someone doing a physical exercise on the cover.
March (Tessa) March Madness - Any BALL used in a sport (bonus if it's a basketball) on the cover
May (Linda C) Mother's Day - woman & child on cover
June (Diana S) Fun in the Sun - a beach on the cover

Amberly (introverted22) | 148 comments Question about the Historical genre task. If it says Historical - Historical Fiction does that count?

This is the book I was thinking about for that task:
The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin
