CHALLENGES: RRRC 2020 May Monthly Challenge: 4/9

1. Happy May Birthday! - Read a book published in May, or read a book with green on the cover in honor of May's birthstone, the Emerald.
MY CHOICE: Four Days of You and Me (May 5th)

2. Flower of the Month - Lily of the Valley: The Lily of the Valley symbolizes Sweetness, Motherhood, and Humility. It is also sometimes called May bells or Mary's tears; and very poisonous.
Read a book that has a sweet character; or read a book where the MC is a mother or mother figure; or read a book that has some white on the cover.
MY CHOICE: Everything, Everything (White Cover)

3. Featured Author Challenge (FAC) - Sarina Bowen: Read one book written by Sarina Bowen or any author with her first or last name.

Link to Sarina Bowen's backlist - https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...

Fun Facts about Sarina Bowen:
* Sarina Bowen has roots in Vermont
* Used to be a derivatives trader in Wall Street
* Award-winning author of more than 30 contemporary novels
* Has been in the USA Today bestseller's list 13 times and counting...

You may also read a book that has an author with the initial S and/or B; or read a book with a page count that has the number 0, 1, or 3.
MY CHOICE: Him

4.May is Asian American/Pacific Islander Heritage Month. This is because May was the month when the first of the Japanese immigrated to the United States (May 7, 1843) and May was also the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad where Chinese immigrants were mostly the workers (May 10,1869).
Read a book with an Asian American/Pacific Islander MC, or where the MCs travel (bonus points if they travel by train, plane, or boat); or read a book where the MCs eat Chinese/Japanese/Filipino/Korean/Thai/etc. food.
MY CHOICE: Fake It Till You Break It (Asian-American author)

5. May 5th is Cinco de Mayo but it is also National Teacher's Day. Now more than ever, especially if you have been homeschooling your kids, we need to show appreciation to our teachers!
Read a book with a teacher MC or a book with a child/children. You can also read a book with the Mexican flag colors: red, white, or green, to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over the French empire!
MY CHOICE:Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Red cover)

6. May 21st is National Waiters and Waitresses Day. All over the world, restaurants are fighting to stay open. We need to recognize the importance of good waiters/waitresses.
Read a book with a MC that is in the restaurant industry: owner, chef, waiter/waitress, etc.; or read a book with a type of food found in a restaurant on the cover. You can also read a book that was recommended to you as a good "tip".
MY CHOICE: Love & Gelato (food on cover)

7. May 25th is National Wine Day. Many people right now are drinking wine, more than ever! So let's celebrate this alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes (or other fruits)!
Read a book that is set in a country where they produce wine (Italy, France, Spain, or United States), or read a book where the MCs drink wine or another type of alcoholic beverage. You can also read a book that includes the letters W I N E in the author's name, book title, or series title.
MY CHOICE: Anna and the French Kiss (takes in place in France)

8.May 31st is National Macaroon Day. Macaroon OR Macaron? Potayto, potahto. No, just kidding. Macaroons and macarons are two different cookies. Macaroons are coconut based, while macarons are meringue based; BOTH ARE DELICIOUS!
Read a book set in Italy since that was where macaroons originated from, or read a book where one of the MCs eat a baked good, bonus points if it's a cookie - more bonus points if it's a MACAROON! You can also read a book where there is a circular object or something brown on the cover since the most popular flavor of macaroons in America is coconut.
MY CHOICE: Macaron Murder (Macarons!!)

Reader's Choice: Read any book of your choice.
