I always love the idea of reading challenges, and I’m forever signing up for them with the hope that I will actually stick with it. So here is one more for the list. Who know, maybe 2022 will be the year!
The 2022 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge, hosted by GIRLxoxo. Each month there is a different motif/theme, and the idea is to read a book inspired by that theme. Now, I am not going to plan out an entire year of reading based on these prompts, but I do have some ideas for January-March so let’s start with that.
JANUARY- New To You. Celebrate the New Year with something new to you- a new genre, a new author, a new book series, a new book purchase, etc.
I have a few books already on my January TBR which meet the new to me author prompt: The Perfect Couple by Jackie Kubler, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, and Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.
FEBRUARY- Girl Power. Highlighting Women! Female Authors, Fierce female characters, feminism, female body positivity, females in science/government, etc.
I have quite a few books by female authors on my shelves: Bringing Down The Duke by Evie Dunmore, The Swap by Robyn Harding, A Stranger In The House by Shari Lapena.
MARCH- Buzzed About Books. Read a book you saw buzzed about a lot in 2021 but haven’t gotten around to reading it yet.
Oh, I have so many that could fit this prompt. But I’ve had Night Circus and The Lost Apothecary on my list, so I think I will probably choose one of them.
