This one will be a new one for me. It’s run by Kim and Tanya of Girlxoxo, and this is their Montly Motif Reading Challenge 2020 sign-up link.
NOTE: Image is from the Girl xoxo site and created by Kim and Tanya.
Hopefully books I pick for other challenges will fit in here too. This is the list of monthly motifs, and when it’s closer to the beginning of the year, I hope to have a tentative list of books I hope to read for it:
MOTIFS (THEMES) FOR EACH MONTH
JANUARY- Winter Wonderland
Focusing on ‘wonderland’, read a book set in a truly wonderful place- somewhere you’ve always thought was beautiful, somewhere with a wonderfully rich culture, a snowy setting, or maybe even a magical realm. It’s your interpretation, so have fun with it.
FEBRUARY- Seeing Red
Read a book with the word ‘red’ in the title OR a book with a red-ish cover. Bonus if it has both.
MARCH- Sub-Genre Sound Off
Choose a sub-genre of your favorite genre and read a book from it. Make sure you mention the sub genre you chose in your review. (Ex. Sub Genres of Fantasy could be Magical Realism, Fairytale Retellings, or Epic Fantasy to name just a few.)
APRIL- Classics or Currents
Read a book published before the year you were born (classic-ish) OR a book published between April 2019 and April 2020 (current.)
MAY- Author Introduction
Read a book written by an author who you’ve never read anything by. Bonus if its been on your TBR for more than a year.
JUNE- Name or Number
Read a book in which a name OR a number is part of the title. Bonus if the title includes both a name and a number.
JULY- Around or Out of this World
Read a book set in a country other than the one you live in OR written by an author who is from a country other than your own OR read a book that takes place in space or on another planet.
AUGUST- Creature Feature
Read a book that includes a creature of some kind on the cover or in the story. Cat, dog, dragon, werewolf – mythical or real – find a book that features a creature.
SEPTEMBER- When Text Just Isn’t Enough
Read a book that includes more than just text. Maybe it’s a map, a family tree, illustrations, documents like emails or letters- something else that helps to paint the picture.
OCTOBER- Thrills and Chills
Ghost stories, haunted houses, true crime, murder mysteries, a thriller keeping you on the edge of your seat- it’s up to you!
NOVEMBER- Dynamic Duos
Read a book with a couple of characters that make the perfect pair whether in business or in love. (Ex. Sherlock & Holmes, Elizabeth & Darcy)
DECEMBER- Sugar, Spice, Everything Nice
Holiday or winter themed reads, love stories and romances, happy cries, comedies; round out your year with a truly feel good read.
