2013 Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge

This challenge is hosted by Bookmark to Blog and all images in this post originate from the challenge post.  Kim has chosen key words to go with each month of the year in 2013 and the challenge is to read a book that lines up with one of the keywords.  Here are the guidelines straight from her:

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 key word 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.'

I'm adding another dimension to this challenge for myself, which is that I'll be trying as best I can to read books that I already own, whether they be paper books or Kindle books or whatever. It's kind of ridiculous that I've accumulated so many books.  Don't we all have this problem though? Be honest now.

Anyway, I'll leave you to check out the sign up page for yourself to see the complete list of key words for each month, but I'll make my list here of books that I'll be reading and what keyword they fit with.
