Monthly Motif Challenge 2014

Kimberly Lynne over on Bookmark to Blog is also doing a Monthly Motif Challenge this year. Each month is assigned a certain motif or theme. The challenge is to read one book per month that fits with the motif for that particular month. I think many of these motifs are excellent, and am really looking forward to this challenge.

Monthly Motifs:
January: Around the World
Choose a book to read that takes place in a country different from the one you live in or choose a book written by an author that is from a country different than your own.

February: Award winner
Read a book that has won recognition or a literary award.

March: Fairy tales or fairy creatures
Read a fairy tale retelling or a book with fey/fairies in it

April: Short and sweet
Read a collection of short stories or an anthology

May: Mystery, Murder and Mayhem
Read a murder/mystery book, a book in which someone dies of mysterious causes, or a book in which a mystery must be solved.

June: A Long Journey
Read a book in which the character(s) take a trip, go on a quest, or find themselves on a journey towards something

July: Assassins, warriors and rebels
Read a book in which the character is one of these things or fights against one of these things.

August: Alternate reality
Read a book that's set in the future, on another planet, in another dimension, or in an unknown world. A Dystopian book will count for this month as well.

September: Book to movie
Read a book that has a movie based off of it. For an extra challenge, see the movie as well.

October: The Witching Hour
There's been a lot of zombies lately, but this year include a 'witchy' book in your scary reads - a book about a witch or that has witches in it.

November: An Oldie but a Goodie
Pick a book published before 2000 that you've always wanted to read, but just never got to. Or pick a book set in the past (before 2000).

December: That's a Wrap
Finish a series you've been meaning to finish or read the next book in a series you started but never finished.
