There will be 12 books on this challenge, one for every month.
Further, I determined the following for me:
- Include German books.
- Include 3-4 stand alones.
- Make it seasonable if possible.
January = The Tower of Ravens (Rhiannon's Ride 1) by Kate Forsyth [GER] has been sitting on my shelf for precisely two years, it's about damn time I started this trilogy. And I want to read something more fantasy and less paranormal again.
✓ February = Unravel Me (Shatter Me 2) by Tahereh Mafi, because I should've read it last February, and now part 3, Ignite Me, is also coming out this month.
✓ March = Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. It's a spring read because it is about taking a leap, trying something new, and starting over.
✓ April = Ripple by Mandy Hubbard, because this story sounds a little like Arielle, The Little Mermaid, and that has me associating with the weather mix of rain and sun.
May = Every Rose by Lynetta Halat, because it's about art and romance, both of which are traditionally running on full force in this month.
✓ June = The next Stephanie Plum novel by Janet Evanovich [GER], whichever one I'm at, because those are funny summer reads.
July = Fade to Black (Black CATs 1) by Leslie Parrish [GER], because I'll need the long summer days with lots of daylight to get through this without falling asleep (that's what supsense and thriller books do to me)
✓ August = Six Moon Summer (Seasons of the Moon 1) by S.M. Reine, simply because it has the word summer in the title.
September = Witness (See 2) by Jamie Maggee has a corn field on the cover, reminding me of harvest times in the fall.
October = The Queen of Wolves (Vampyricon 3) by Douglas Clegg [GER] has been on my challenge list last year as well, and I think October is the right month to finally say goodbye to this trilogy.
November = Touch of Frost (Mythos Academy 1) by Jennifer Estep, because it gets wintery in the title, and I think I finally want to know what all the fuss around this series is about. 😛
December = The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck is, as the title indicates, a Christmas read.
