Reading Challenges 2015: Monthly Motif Challenge

As well as hosting the Monthly Key Word Challenge, Kim over on Bookmark to Blog hosts the Monthly Motif Challenge. Each month is assigned a particular theme or motif, and the challenge is to read at least one book that fits with said motif. While some of it remains the same as last year, I can also see that there have been new motifs added, which keeps it fun and fresh. This is another challenge that allows me to make a list, planning my reading. I love that. 

The motifs for 2015:

January - Book to Movie or Audio
Read a book that has a movie or an audio based off it. For an extra challenge, watch the movie or listen to the audio book as well.

February - Award Winner
Read a book that has won recognition or a literary award.

March - Genre Jumble
Read a book in a genre you've never tried or that you are the least familiar with. For example, if you typically read romance novels, try a mystery this time. Ask your local librarian for suggestions on the genre you are least familiar with.

April - Murder, Mystery and Mayhem
Read a murder/mystery book, a book in which someone dies of mysterious causes, or a book in which the truth must come out.

May - Library Love
Show your library some love and visit your local branch. Pick a book that they have on display to read.

June - Take a Trip
Choose a book to read that takes place in a country different to the one you live in or choose a book by an author from a country different than your own (this is not going to be hard, what with being from Norway)

July - Standing Up
Read a book in which the main character stands up for themselves, stands against an enemy, or stands up for something they believe in

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 - Furry Friends
Read a book that includes an animal either as a main character or supporting character. Horses, cats, dogs, insects, birds etc. The book doesn't have to be about the animal, but the animal needs to play some sort of role in the story or be mentioned several times throughout the book.

October - Goblins and Ghosts and Ghouls, Oh My!
Cozy mystery ghost stories, paranormal creeptastic, funky fantasy creatures - it's up to you!

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.
