      ~ Mother’s Day Challenge - May 2015 ~
This May we’ve given you several ways to celebrate Mother’s Day. Please join us in one - or all!

DURATION: May 1st - May 31st, 2015

LEVELS:
1-2 - Easy
3-5 - Medium
6-9 - Harder
10 or more - Hardest
OPTION #1 RULES:
Play “Mother, May I?” with us. Choose as many of the letter as you can and read a book corresponding to a category. You may substitute any letter twice by choosing to read a letter the old-fashioned way (title, author, etc.). In addition, you may choose two “Reader’s Choice” or “Wild Card” Birthday Babies books to replace a letter. If you want to lower your goal (from 10 books to 7), try spelling “Mom, May I?" In this case, you may use either “M” listed.
M. - “M” is for “mom.” Read a book where the heroine gets pregnant.
O. - The letter “O” often stands for a hug (i.e. “XO” for “Kisses & Hugs.”)
        So, read a book where a couple is hugging on the cover.

T. - “T” is for the “trouble” you got into as a kid. Read a book where the
        heroine gets into trouble of some sort.

H. - “H” is for “Heart.” Read a book that touches your heart.
E. - “E” is for “Eternal Love.” Read a Paranormal Romance book where
        the lovers find this.

R. - “R” is for “Reliable.” Read an author who hasn’t yet failed to make
        you happy.


M. - “M” is for “Maybe.” Take the leap and read a book you’ve only
        been pondering.

A. - “A” is for “Almost.” Read a book that is the last in a series
        (thus far is acceptable).
Y. - “Y” is for “Youth.” Read a Young Adult book.

I. - Read a book in the first person POV (point of view).
OPTION #2 RULES:
Select books that meet the criteria from the 2X2 options below. See how many you can get! Don’t forget, when setting your goal, you still have the option of two “Reader’s Choice” or using books from the shelves of our “Wild Card” Birthday Babies.
2 X 2

M - More than one - as in works for more than one challenge.
M - Read a book where the heroine becomes a mother.

O - Onward - continuing a series...
O - Out now - a newly published book.

T - TBR pile; one of your oldest.
T - TBR pile; one of your newest.

H - Heard it was good.
H - HEA - has to have one.

E - eFreebies (ie: Kindle, Nook, Smashwords, NetGallery, Author ARC, etc.)
E - Everyone seems to be reading it, so why not you?

R - Recommended by a Friend (GoodReads or not!)
R - Reread (a favorite, or it has been so long you wonder if this one will still hold up).
OPTION #3 RULES (Spell-It-Out):
Our Spell-It-Out rules apply here. Spell out anything that reminds you of May or Mother. Select your mom’s name or your favorite flower, or something pertaining to May and Spell-It-Out. Read books with titles, series names, authors (first or last name), character (first or last name), that begin with letters that correspond to letters of the word you choose. You may ignore the indefinite and definite articles (a, an, the, etc.).
Example of Spell-It-Out:
M. - Melanie Scott, author of Lawless In Leather
U. - Under the Lights, by Shannon Stacey
M. - Maiden Lane #8 - Dearest Rogue, by Elizabeth Hoyt
Lawless In Leather (New York Saints, #3) by Melanie Scott Under the Lights (Boys of Fall, #1) by Shannon Stacey Dearest Rogue (Maiden Lane, #8) by Elizabeth Hoyt
Check out Add a Book & Bookcover Link, if you need to know how.
Smiley
OPTION #4
Do all - or a bit of all of these.

Danielle  Gypsy Soul (afdaniellet) Finished 4 Books so far for this challenge and got really lucky. 3 out of 4 were 5 star books for me (which is pretty rare). I loved newly released Midnight's Kiss, the new book in Thea Harrison's Elder Races, I also LOVED, Lick a book I heard was good so I gave it a shot even though it isn't something I'd normally go looking for. I also re-read an old favorite The Bride which was just as good 20 years later! I also read Connor's Gamble which was good but not the caliber of book that the first three were.

Midnight's Kiss (Elder Races, #8) by Thea Harrison Lick (Stage Dive, #1) by Kylie Scott The Bride (Lairds' Fiancées, #1) by Julie Garwood Connor's Gamble by Kathy Ivan

~ Mother’s Day Challenge - May 2015 ~
DURATION: May 1st - May 31st, 2015
LEVEL: 10 or more - Hardest

Read: 10/10

So far I'm going with ~ OPTION #1:

M. - “M” is for “mom.” Read a book where the heroine gets pregnant. The Navy SEAL's E-Mail Order Bride (The Heroes of Chance Creek, #1) by Cora Seton 5/4
O. - The letter “O” often stands for a hug (i.e. “XO” for “Kisses & Hugs.”)
So, read a book where a couple is hugging on the cover. This Thing Called Love (Mirror Lake, #1) by Miranda Liasson 5/28
T. - “T” is for the “trouble” you got into as a kid. Read a book where the
heroine gets into trouble of some sort. The Rancher's Mail Order Bride (The Dalton Brides Book 1) by Kirsten Osbourne 5/10
H. - “H” is for “Heart.” Read a book that touches your heart. The Drifter's Mail-Order Bride (A Sweet Western Historical Romance) (The Dalton Brides Book 4) by Cassie Hayes 5/11
E. - “E” is for “Eternal Love.” Read a Paranormal Romance book where
the lovers find this. Forbidden Days (The Firsts, #1) by C.L. Quinn 5/26 re-read
R. - “R” is for “Reliable.” Read an author who hasn’t yet failed to make
you happy. A Good Rake is Hard to Find (Lords of Anarchy, #1) by Manda Collins 5/14 Not up to her usual standards.

M. - “M” is for “Maybe.” Take the leap and read a book you’ve only
been pondering. The Duke's Holiday by Maggie Fenton 5/16 Did not enjoy.
A. - “A” is for “Almost.” Read a book that is the last in a series
(thus far is acceptable). The Unlikely Lady (Playful Brides, #3) by Valerie Bowman 5/6
Y. - “Y” is for “Youth.” Read a Young Adult book. The Carriage by Jena Baxter 5/29 This book was a bit of a stretch for me.
