Goodread May Reading Challenge
Level 2:  0 of 6 Completed
Level 3:  0 0f 8 Completed

Okay, I have to admit that this is an interesting challenge…this is really going to stretch my boundaries. 
1. M is for May:
1.2 Read a book with a cover that makes you say, "Mmmmm!" and you have to post a link to that drool worthy cover so we all know what makes you drool. When You Dare (Men Who Walk on the Edge of Honor, #1) by Lori Foster
1.3 Read a m/m romance where the one of the lead character's names start with M. A Realistic Romance by Andi Anderson

2. Birthday:
2.3. Read a book rated four or five stars with which you are completely unfamiliar from a May B-day celebrant’s GR bookshelf whose “day” falls on the same “day” as yours. If no one has the exact same day, then go for the closest date. (Alecia) Falling by Christopher Pike

3. Geography:
3.2. Read a book whose author, setting, AND characters are from India. The Sari Shop Widow by Shobhan Bantwal
3.3. Read a book whose author, setting, and characters are from India in Hindi or some other native Indian dialect.
4. Cinco de Mayo:
4.2. Read a book that is the fifth in a series or has five words in the title. Breaking Point (I-Team, #5) by Pamela Clare
4.3. Read a book that has a recipe that calls for mayo. Life From Scratch by Melissa Ford

5. Mother May I:
5.3. Read a BDSM book. (After all, isn't BDSM all about one person following the commands of another person and trusting that they will get you where they want to go? So it's really like a full contact adult version of Mother May I.) Club Shadowlands by Cherise Sinclair

6. "Mayday mayday mayday! We're going down!":
6.3. Read a book where the h/h are involved in a plane crash or a shipwreck (bonus points if they actually use the term "Mayday mayday mayday!") The Summer I Dared by Barbara Delinsky

7. April showers bring May flowers (and what do Mayflowers bring? Pilgrims!):
7.2. Read a book about a religious colony. Lamb, The Gospel According to Biff by Christopher Moore
7.3. Read a book about a religious colony with a picture of flowers on the front cover.

8. Maybe if things had been different... Maybe things will change in the future.... The world is full of maybes, might bes, and might have beens:
8.3. Past alternative realities might be the toughest. What if something was different in the past? Steampunk? What if the Axis won WWII? Read a historical with an alternative reality. Photographs & Phantoms by Cindy Spencer Pape

9. Friday the 13th!:
9.2. Since the date has become associated with a certain mass murdering psychopath, read a book that would be considered HORROR or at least a scary book. Hush (Lodestone Trilogy, #1) by Cherry Adair
9.3. Read a horror book with a 'luck' title. Lady Luck by Jane Toombs

10. Reader's Choice: I'll let you pick your own three levels. Just remember to have an open mind and pick a good one.
