Last year was my first year to do this challenge, and I’ve had fun finding books to go with the words. Bev from My Reader’s Block ran it last year and the year before, but now Kim and Tanya of Girl xoxo who originated the challenge are hosting it once again. The link I used was Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge 2020 by Girl xoxo.
NOTE: The image above was found on My Reader’s Block, may have been made by Girlxoxo, and I’m only using it since I couldn’t find any other image to use for this challenge.
To read all the details and rules, please use the link above as there’s no point in copy and pasting everything already on Kim and Tanya’s site. The main thing is to read one book with one or more of the keywords in the title. Variations of words can be used, or synonyms can be used (the example on the Girl xoxo site is that “cinder” or “ashes” could be used for a keyword of “fire.”)
For more details, if you have questions or want to sign up, the link again is: Girl xoxo’s Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge 2020.
Here’s the keyword list we’ll be using this year and if/when I choose books ahead of time, I’ll post those closer to the beginning of the new year:
