Reading By The Month Reading Challenge 2018 at Lady In Read Writes – My very first attempt at hosting something on my blog other than a giveaway! Here are the guidelines for the challenge:

  1. Read at least one book each month – the title of the book should contain either a)the name of the month, b) the number/order of the month: eg: one for January, or c) the keyword you associate with the month (check the table below for examples)
  2. The challenge will run from January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018 (books read prior to January 2018 do not count towards the challenge). You can join anytime before December 1st
  3. Books can be any format (print, ebook, audio)
  4. Books can be fiction or non-fiction; and all genres/age-range are allowed
  5. Books can be of any publication date.
  6. You can choose your books as you go or create a list in advance. Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.

Any suggestions for titles or for mini-challenges? Let me know in the comments..

This is also my first post of the year and my first post towards the Ultimate Blogging Challenge. This is one of my favorite blogging challenges to take part in, mainly because of the wonderful blogging community and friends I have made in blogland…

    1. Thank you Brenda.. will work on my Liebster post soon and I have one more reading challenge posted today – you can check it that might work for you -

  1. LOVE this idea!!!!! This is so great!! I’ve been dying to read more and this is such a creative idea. I don’t know if I’ll be able to do it for the entire year because I have a lot of work and school, but definetely will try out in the summer. Thank you for this!

  2. Neat idea! I feel sure I will read more than one book a month because I love to read, but I do wonder if I could match it up the way the challenge requires. Seems like it would be fun to try, though! Nice to see you again.

    1. Roy, you could pick your keyword for the month too!! the examples I provided are just the more popular words associated with the month.. and I also have the continental reading challenge in my next post.. 🙂 and would love to have your list of reading too to expand/diversify my own.
