December Holiday Reading Challenge!!

Hi All!!

I’ve started a December Holiday Reading Challenge Thanks to Kristie from the Goodreads Book Club “The Perks of Being A Book Addict” 

I figured I would post the challenge here so

  1. It will explain my review choices for the month
  2. SO YOU CAN ALL JOIN IN!

So, here’s how it goes!

Rules: 
✒︎ You may choose how many tasks you’d like to complete from 1 to all 7.
✒︎ Each task can only be completed once and each book can only be used for 1 task.
✒︎ Books must be at least 150 pages long.
✒︎ Any book format may be used: physical, electronic, audio.
✒︎ For audio pages just use the first edition of the book that pops up when you do a search for the book.
✒︎ All books must be started and finished within the challenge month.

Tasks:
gingerbread man~ Gingerbread Man: Male PoV
Read a book that is from a male perspective.

elves~ Elves: Short Book
Tradition states that elves are short, so reading a book with
less than 300 pages.

mistletoe~ Mistletoe: People Kissing
Kissing under the mistletoe is popular in December, so
finding a book with a couple kissing on the cover.

santa~ Santa: Big Book
Notoriously known for his over-sized belly, read a book as
big as Santa something with more than 400 pages.

candy cane 2~ Candy Cane: ‘J’ Author
Candy canes are shaped like a ‘J’ so read a book that is
written by a author with their first or last name beginning
with ‘J’.

christmas tree~ Christmas Tree: Colorful Cover
A book with more than 4 colors on the cover.

ornament~ Ornaments: Circular designs
Most ornaments are circular in shape, so finding a book
whose cover has a circular shape image.

Please join in by either joining us on Goodreads at “The Perks of Being a Book Addict” or feel free to leave the books you choose and updates on your progress in the Comments! I’m very curious to see what books others come up with! And HAPPY DECEMBER READING!

      1. Haha, well, good for you for having the courage to push yourself. I like to call my own scaredy-catedness (yes, it’s a word) “caution” or “being-realistic-about-my-time,” but really I should probably try and push myself a bit more!

      2. EXACTLY! I’m DEFINITELY doing that right now. Thankfully, technology has invented audio books… We have a love/hate relationship since I feel it’s harder to review a book after listening to an audio version of it.. But, it’s so handy when it’s such a busy time of year!!

      3. That’s so true! If I don’t like a reader, I just won’t listen to it. But if I DO like the reader, I have a hard time not really, REALLY liking the book. I become a lot less critical overall. It’s nice, because I get to enjoy the story more, but it can make saying anything other than “Oh! I loved this!” difficult. 😛
        At least, that’s how it goes for me…..

      4. I definitely understand that! I also like to have quotes in my reviews.. Lines that really jumped out at me. I find it harder to get those listening to an audio book since by the time I realized I liked it it’s gone and I’m probably multi-tasking while listening, so it’s harder to go back and write it down.

      5. Oh my goodness, yes! Quotes… having them read aloud maybe makes them even better, but then they’re just gone! And let’s be real: I’m waaay too lazy to pull open a print or e-copy of that book and hunt down the quote. It would have to be the most amazing quote ever. And so many good ones just disappear back into the story. 😦
