The main thing about the challenges is to enjoy reading so we are trying to make it so you read books you want. Eight books a month is our aim so any eight books will be amazing however we have decided to challenge you to the do the following if you are up for it

BOOK 1 -In honor of January being the first month of the year, we challenge you to read the first book on your to-read shelf or a book that consist of all ones (ex. 1, 11, 111, 1111),

BOOK 2- Read a book with either a holiday theme, that takes place in the winter, or with a predominantly white cover.

BOOK 3 - Read a book that was given to you as a gift, or a book that you've just recently purchased.

BOOK 4-Read a book with a j somewhere in the title or in the authors name.

BOOK 5 -Read a book with a character that saves lives (ex. doctor, cop, fire fighter, ect.)

BOOK 6 - Read a book by a author you have never tried before but have always wanted to.

BOOK 7 - read a book you keep meaning to read but still havent i.e one you bought ages ago.

Book 8 - ANYTHING YOU LIKE !!!

As I said abover reading 8 books a month is the aim, and I know as much as anyone if you are mid way through a series you are hooked on you may not want to pick out these thing, and thats fine. When I discover a series I love and I have the next book waiting on my coffee table the last thing on earth I am going to do is pick up some random book just because the authors name begins with a J. However when I am not mid way into a series its good to look through my bookshelves on here and discover another author I love! So if you read 8 books but they are not in the challenge, dont panic and still tell us you read your 8 as thats the main point.

Good luck guys !!

Great list Angie. I've read half of those. Halfway to the Grave is amazing, and I really like Magic Bites. I just order the rest of that series last week. Crave was pretty good as well.

I tried reading Magic Bites a couple months ago and just couldn't get into it. I tried it again last week for a challenge and ended up loving it. But now I'm dying to finish the series because i want to know if Kate ends up with Curran.


message 9: by Sofia (new)

Sofia (sofiad) I have a question considering Book 4 we are supposed to read in Jan (the "J" book). Since I'm a Swede I read most books translated into Swedish (it's really hard to find a good English book here!), can I count it if there is a j in the Swedish title, or should it be the English one?

Yeah of yourself you can, that's fine.

I read Astrid Amara's two other Chanukah books--it was so nice to find books about my holiday, lol. (Not that I don't enjoy the Christmas books too, of course. I loved Josh Lanyon's "The Dickens With Love.")

My son read "TGWTDT" and loved it, and kept telling me how good it is. He started the second one, but with college, it's hard to read what he likes to read. I may now be able to finish the series before him. So many books to read!
