Sonja (sonjac) | 1158 comments 2018 September Monthly Reading Challenge
I’m taking over RRRC this month! MUHAHHAHAHAHAA!!!
1. 'S' is for September: Read a book that starts with 'S' or a book whose author's first or last name starts with 'S'.

2. Olympian Gods and Goddesses - HERMES-
Hermes was considered a “trickster” due to his cunning and clever personality. He primarily served as the herald or messenger of the gods. Hermes was born in a cave on a mountain in Arcadia; he was conceived and born within the course of one day.
♦ Read a book with a character who has wings (either on the cover or in the book) -OR-
♦ Read a book with a scarf on the cover 
♦ Read a humorous book, a comedy or one that makes you laugh
♦ Read a stand-alone book or the 1st book in a series.

3. Featured Author Challenge (FAC) - Loretta Chase Read one book written by this month’s featured author, Loretta Chase or any author with her first or last name.

Fun Facts about Loretta-
♥ Loretta Chase is of Albanian ancestry, but grew up in New England
♥ She received her English degree from Clark University
♥ She writes Historical Romances and has been publishing since 1987
♥ Loretta won many awards, including a Romance Writers of America RITA


♦ So, you may also read a book set in New England, or by an author who is from New England.
♦ You can also read any book originally published in 1987, or is shelved as Historical Romance or a book by any author who has won a RITA award.

4. September is Hispanic Heritage Month! Hispanic Heritage Month actually crosses between September 15th and October 15th and gets its roots back in 1968. It begins on the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period.
♦ Read a book set in one of the above Spanish-speaking countries or with a character who is from one of these countries.
♦ Read a book with a character who speaks any other language.
♦ Read a book with a mostly green cover (for National Guacamole day, 9/16!)

5. National Skyscraper Day – September 3rd Skyscrapers are truly engineering and architectural marvels. With so many crowded cities, space is limited and real estate prices are ever increasing, so building ‘up’ becomes more and more logical. The tallest skyscraper in the world is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai at 2,717 feet.
♦ Read a book with a building or buildings on the cover
♦ Read a book with a wealthy character
♦ Read a book with a number in the title (series numbers don’t count!)
♦ Read a book with a cover that is mostly silver or grey

6. National Read a Book Day – September 6th Um this one’s a given! Take time out of your busy life and relax with a good book. It doesn’t matter where you read that book, as long as you can do so in comfort! And if you doze off along the way, we won’t tell anyone!
♦ Read a book with a character who is a librarian, loves to read or is a writer
♦ Read a book with a book or books on the cover
♦ Read a book just because!

7. National Stay Away from Seattle Day – September 16th This was just too coincidental to pass up. Stay away from my hometown day on my birthdate? You might be surprised to learn that this admittedly-weird holiday is actually a very pro-Seattle day. This holiday, jokingly invented by comedian Tom Roy who had never even been to Seattle, was designed to give the city a little breather from all the people rushing to stay there. Odd for the touristy city that loves to share their secrets and economy with visitors!
♦ Read a book set in the Pacific Northwest – bonus back-pat if it’s in Seattle!
♦ Read a book where the character is a musician or with a guitar on the cover
♦ Read a book with rain or water on the cover
♦ Read a book that includes travel or a vacation.

8. Oktoberfest Begins – September 21st Oktoberfest is a two-week festival, held in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. While it is a giant world festival in Germany, Oktoberfest celebrations are held around the world during this time. It’s not just a celebration of beer. It is a huge festival with lots of food, music, dancing, rides and carnival booths. The very first Oktoberfest was held on October 12, 1810 and commemorated the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese. The marriage was celebrated annually and came to be known as Oktoberfest. The festivals were eventually moved to mid-September as the weather was better in earlier Fall.
♦ Read a book with a mug, cup or stein on the cover
♦ Read a book with royalty in the story (either as MCs or a character in the story)
♦ Read a book with a character who works with drinks (or food!)
♦ Read set in Europe, bonus back-pat if it’s Germany!

9. Hobbit Day – September 22nd It’s the birthday of Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, two of the main hobbit characters from Lord of the Rings. Hobbits are little guys, but they’re the heroes in the LOTR movies and books, performing great acts of heroism and courage. Notably, Hobbits go around barefoot and eat seven meals a day. They also like to dance, have parties and enjoy fireworks.
♦ Read a book with bare feet or a bare foot on the cover
♦ Read a book with a celebration or a party in the story.
♦ Read a book tagged fantasy or Sci-Fi
♦ Read a book told from the hero’s point of view.

Jessica | 145 comments I'm in, but I don't know whether I can manage all of the books....

6/10

1. 'S' is for September: Read a book that starts with 'S' or a book whose author's first or last name starts with 'S'. --> Slow Burn

2. Olympian Gods and Goddesses - HERMES-
Hermes was considered a “trickster” due to his cunning and clever personality. He primarily served as the herald or messenger of the gods. Hermes was born in a cave on a mountain in Arcadia; he was conceived and born within the course of one day.
♦ Read a book with a character who has wings (either on the cover or in the book) -OR-
♦ Read a book with a scarf on the cover
♦ Read a humorous book, a comedy or one that makes you laugh
♦ Read a stand-alone book or the 1st book in a series. --> Barely Breathing

3. Featured Author Challenge (FAC) - Loretta Chase Read one book written by this month’s featured author, Loretta Chase or any author with her first or last name.
♦ You may also read a book set in New England, or by an author who is from New England. --> Safe Haven (even if just barely set there and then somewhere else) ✔
♦ You can also read any book originally published in 1987, or is shelved as Historical Romance or a book by any author who has won a RITA award.

4. September is Hispanic Heritage Month! Hispanic Heritage Month actually crosses between September 15th and October 15th and gets its roots back in 1968. It begins on the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period.
♦ Read a book set in one of the above Spanish-speaking countries or with a character who is from one of these countries. --> Striking Distance
♦ Read a book with a character who speaks any other language.
♦ Read a book with a mostly green cover (for National Guacamole day, 9/16!)

5. National Skyscraper Day – September 3rd Skyscrapers are truly engineering and architectural marvels. With so many crowded cities, space is limited and real estate prices are ever increasing, so building ‘up’ becomes more and more logical. The tallest skyscraper in the world is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai at 2,717 feet.
♦ Read a book with a building or buildings on the cover
♦ Read a book with a wealthy character --> Close to Heaven
♦ Read a book with a number in the title (series numbers don’t count!)
♦ Read a book with a cover that is mostly silver or grey

6. National Read a Book Day – September 6th Um this one’s a given! Take time out of your busy life and relax with a good book. It doesn’t matter where you read that book, as long as you can do so in comfort! And if you doze off along the way, we won’t tell anyone!
♦ Read a book with a character who is a librarian, loves to read or is a writer --> Unlawful Contact
♦ Read a book with a book or books on the cover
♦ Read a book just because!

7. National Stay Away from Seattle Day – September 16th This was just too coincidental to pass up. Stay away from my hometown day on my birthdate? You might be surprised to learn that this admittedly-weird holiday is actually a very pro-Seattle day. This holiday, jokingly invented by comedian Tom Roy who had never even been to Seattle, was designed to give the city a little breather from all the people rushing to stay there. Odd for the touristy city that loves to share their secrets and economy with visitors!
♦ Read a book set in the Pacific Northwest – bonus back-pat if it’s in Seattle! --> Coming Undone
♦ Read a book where the character is a musician or with a guitar on the cover
♦ Read a book with rain or water on the cover
♦ Read a book that includes travel or a vacation.

8. Oktoberfest Begins – September 21st Oktoberfest is a two-week festival, held in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. While it is a giant world festival in Germany, Oktoberfest celebrations are held around the world during this time. It’s not just a celebration of beer. It is a huge festival with lots of food, music, dancing, rides and carnival booths. The very first Oktoberfest was held on October 12, 1810 and commemorated the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese. The marriage was celebrated annually and came to be known as Oktoberfest. The festivals were eventually moved to mid-September as the weather was better in earlier Fall.
♦ Read a book with a mug, cup or stein on the cover
♦ Read a book with royalty in the story (either as MCs or a character in the story)
♦ Read a book with a character who works with drinks (or food!)
♦ Read set in Europe, bonus back-pat if it’s Germany! --> The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

9. Hobbit Day – September 22nd It’s the birthday of Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, two of the main hobbit characters from Lord of the Rings. Hobbits are little guys, but they’re the heroes in the LOTR movies and books, performing great acts of heroism and courage. Notably, Hobbits go around barefoot and eat seven meals a day. They also like to dance, have parties and enjoy fireworks.
♦ Read a book with bare feet or a bare foot on the cover
♦ Read a book with a celebration or a party in the story.
♦ Read a book tagged fantasy or Sci-Fi
♦ Read a book told from the hero’s point of view. --> Inside Out

The very first Oktoberfest was held on October 12, 1810 and commemorated the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese. The marriage was celebrated annually and came to be known as Oktoberfest. The festivals were eventually moved to mid-September as the weather was better in earlier Fall.

2. Olympian Gods and Goddesses - HERMES-

♦ Read a book with a character who speaks any other language.
♦ Read a book with a mostly green cover (for National Guacamole day, 9/16!)

5. National Skyscraper Day– September 3rd Skyscrapers are truly engineering and architectural marvels. With so many crowded cities, space is limited and real estate prices are ever increasing, so building ‘up’ becomes more and more logical. The tallest skyscraper in the world is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai at 2,717 feet.
♦ Read a book with a building or buildings on the cover
♦ Read a book with a wealthy character
♦ Read a book with a number in the title (series numbers don’t count!)

♦ Read a book with a book or books on the cover
♦ Read a book just because!

7. National Stay Away from Seattle Day – September 16th This was just too coincidental to pass up. Stay away from my hometown day on my birthdate? You might be surprised to learn that this admittedly-weird holiday is actually a very pro-Seattle day. This holiday, jokingly invented by comedian Tom Roy who had never even been to Seattle, was designed to give the city a little breather from all the people rushing to stay there. Odd for the touristy city that loves to share their secrets and economy with visitors!
♦ Read a book set in the Pacific Northwest – bonus back-pat if it’s in Seattle!
♦ Read a book where the character is a musician or with a guitar on the cover
♦ Read a book with rain or water on the cover
♦ Read a book that includes travel or a vacation.

8. Oktoberfest Begins – September 21st Oktoberfest is a two-week festival, held in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. While it is a giant world festival in Germany, Oktoberfest celebrations are held around the world during this time. It’s not just a celebration of beer. It is a huge festival with lots of food, music, dancing, rides and carnival booths. The very first Oktoberfest was held on October 12, 1810 and commemorated the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese. The marriage was celebrated annually and came to be known as Oktoberfest. The festivals were eventually moved to mid-September as the weather was better in earlier Fall.
♦ Read a book with a mug, cup or stein on the cover
♦ Read a book with royalty in the story (either as MCs or a character in the story)
♦ Read a book with a character who works with drinks (or food!)
♦ Read set in Europe, bonus back-pat if it’s Germany!

9. Hobbit Day – September 22nd It’s the birthday of Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, two of the main hobbit characters from Lord of the Rings. Hobbits are little guys, but they’re the heroes in the LOTR movies and books, performing great acts of heroism and courage. Notably, Hobbits go around barefoot and eat seven meals a day. They also like to dance, have parties and enjoy fireworks.
♦ Read a book with bare feet or a bare foot on the cover
♦ Read a book with a celebration or a party in the story.
♦ Read a book tagged fantasy or Sci-Fi
♦ Read a book told from the hero’s point of view.

I actually replied on your profile to avoid spamming this thread. :D But yes, September marks the return one of my numerous book boyfriends, and I can’t wait!! (I’ll actually have to wait till the library gets it, lol.)

Anyway, about book selection for this challenge—I’m also participating in a team challenge on another group called the ‘Game of Thrones’ challenge, so each week, I’m going to find a book which matches both this task list and that one!

And I wish I’d signed up for PIFM for September, I guess it’s too late. :(

HEY!!! I'm in The GoT challenge as well! What house are you in? I'm Tully House. That's basically how I pull my books... what's due first to the library; what will satisfy the many challenges I get myself into. LOL!

I might be able to get you into PIFM, just hang tight!
