Reading challenge wrapup 2013 - Monthly Keyword Challenge

Kimberly Lynne over on Bookmark to Blog hosted the Monthly Keyword Challenge this year.

The guidelines:
- The title you choose can be a variation on one of the key words. For example - your title could include the word 'snowing' or 'snowflake' even though the keyword is 'snow'.
- Key words can be tweaked. For example - you could read "Cinder" or "Ashes" for the key word "Fire" and that would be just fine. If the key word is 'family' then your title could include the word 'sister' or 'mother'. If the key word is 'food' then your title could include the word 'cake'.

While some of the books may have been blogged in a different month, they were all read in the correct month of the year.

November: several of books with the relevant key words were read in other months of the year, but due to a heavy work load, I seem to have completely missed out on actually hitting the target here.

These Broken Stars (key word: star)

I hadn't actually realised until I compiled the list that I'd missed out on reading a key word book for November in the actual relevant month. Am really annoyed that I failed to hit at least one book a month now.
