Because this is challenge is all about you, you can choose the order, you can trade out one monthly challenge for one you create, or you can substitute the sign or gem you wish you had for the one that is yours. Just let this challenge reflect the uniqueness of you, because this challenge is, after all, All About You.

Month 1: Read your Birthday Month (Spell it out challenge)
Month 2: Read your Birthstone (Spell it out challenge) or read 3 or 4 books with covers that match the color of your birthstone or 3 or 4 books with the name of your Birthstone in the title
Month 3: Read your sign (Spell it out challenge)
Month 4: Read your Chinese zodiac sign (Spell it out challenge)
Read your favorite flower (Spell it out challenge) or read 3 or 4 books with your favorite flower on the cover
Month 5: Read 3 or 4 books set in a country you'd like to visit
Month 6: Read 3 or 4 books from your favorite genre
Month 7: Read 3 or 4 books with your child or a friend
Month 8: Read 3 or 4 books written by some of your favorite authors
Month 9: Set yourself a personal goal to exceed the amount of books you normally read in a month
Month 10: Read one of your favorite foods (Spell it out challenge)
Month 11: Read 3 or 4 books by authors you've never read before, but have been meaning to
Month 12: Read your favorite Book Crush's name

P.S. If you want a specific part of the challenge to last longer than a month or shorter it's up to you. You decide. No pressure. It's just for fun. :)

Thanks!! I'm trying to have it planned out ahead so I can keep my list updated. I'm a wierdo when it comes to lists!! :) I find the more organized I am the more challenges I can participate in and complete as well as being able to read more books. Plus I'm really really trying to stick to books I own (which funny enough the books I picked are library books!).


message 14: by Sashana (new)

Sashana You said it all. I'm trying to put more of an effort into finishing each challenge so I bought a notebook to write my lists and plan. I'm also trying to read the book I own.

Rachel, I had serious doubts about this one because of the reviews being either great or real bad. I actually liked the book.

I found the POV of Jack a really good idea for this book as it smooths things that would be ugly to read. Besides,I liked to read how Jack saw things, maybe that is because I have a 2year old daugther or maybe child brain always fascinates me. Of course there are a lot of missing parts like he doesn't really understands how things affect him or his Ma and also he doesn't get what the real fuss about sometimes but then we never know how a child sees things really.
I can't say it's a real page turner but at parts it was. It is a little though in the begining as everyday is just a repeat and there was this feeling of forced suspense even though the story line is obvious, not telling how and why and when. (of course, that was a result of Jack POV).
In the end,I am glad, I read it. Hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think.
