2021 Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge

This challenge is run by girlxoxo.

The way I’ll be organizing individual challenge pages like this are by listing the different book options I’m considering for each task, and then only after the fact, or just before, whittling and editing it down to the book I choose/chose for the task (month in this case).

My GoodReads shelf for this Challenge.


Underlined are books that match with other (usually monthly, but not always) challenges. The book I end up reading will be highlighted/written in colour, versus black and grey, marked with its date of completion.
