Chiara | 532 comments This reading challenge will start on September 1st, 2018, and end on September 30th, 2018. Books used for this challenge MUST be read during this time frame.
This month we’ve decided to give you the opportunity to choose between two different challenges:
- EASY CHALLENGE: SINGLE THEME
- HARD CHALLENGE: MULTIPLE THEMES.

The reader with the most points at the end of the month will go into the draw to win a surprise ebook. If there are multiple readers on the same winning point tally, a reader will be chosen randomly.
All books must be New Adult (NA) and a minimum of 120 pages.


SINGLE THEME CHALLENGE – 5 BOOKS

Since September is the month that represents the beginning of a new academic year in many countries, this month’s theme will be BACK TO SCHOOL. Therefore, you must read 5 books set in College.

A maximum of 3 bonus points will be awarded if you read 3 books that are featured in the following booklist (1 bonus point for each book): Contemporary - School, College, Bullying


MULTIPLE THEME CHALLENGE – 8 BOOKS

1. September is Classical Music Month: read a book where music is part of the storyline
2. September 6th – National "Read a Book" Day: read a New Adult book of your choice
3. September 7th – Neither Rain Nor Snow Day: read a book that shows rain or snow on the cover
4. September 13th – Defy Superstition Day: read a book that is tagged suspense, mystery or paranormal
5. September 16th – National Play-Doh Day: read a book where one of the main characters is an artist, or a book featuring a child
6. September 22nd – October Fest: read a book with scenes in a bar or a book with characters who drink beer
7. September 22nd – Business Women's Day: read a book with a strong/sassy heroine
8. September 23rd – Autumn Equinox: read a book set in the fall, or a book with autumn colors on the cover


RULES:

- Single Theme Challenge: You will receive 1 point for each book you read, up to a maximum of 5 books. A maximum of 3 bonus points will be awarded if you read up to 3 books that are included in the following booklist (1 bonus point for each book): Contemporary - School, College, Bullying
- Multiple Themes Challenge: You will receive 1 point for each book you read, up to a maximum of 8 books
- Maximum 8 points available for both challenges options
- All books MUST be NA and a minimum of 120 pages.
- Create ONE post below to keep track of your progress and edit your post throughout the month. In your post you must include which challenge option you’re choosing, book cover of each book completed, the date it was read and the star rating you gave it.
