July Monthly Reading Challenge Thread

1. 'J' is for July: One Day to Find a Husband by Jump, Shirley 7/17
We liked it so much in June, lets do it again!! Read a book that starts with 'J' or by an author whose first or last name begins with 'J'.
2. Happy Birthday Angela!: Club Shadowlands (Masters of the Shadowlands, #1) by Sinclair, Cherise  7/31
Read a book from a July birthday celebrant's GR bookshelf whose name/nickname starts with the same letter as yours. If no one has the same letter, choose someone with the closest letter to yours alphabetically. RRRC July Birthday List
3. Geography: Heart of a Desert Warrior by Monroe, Lucy 7/5
Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Saudi Arabia (Middle East). Or because Saudi Arabia has all of these, read a book about a monarchy (royal family), oil, or desert.
4. 7th Month: Blazing Bedtime Stories, Volume VII: The Steadfast Hot Soldier\Wild Thing by Nelson, Rhonda 7/4
Lets face it, not a lot of series are seven books long. Since seven is a prime number, read a book that is a prime number in a series or has a prime number of words in the title. For those of you aren't math geeks like me, a prime number is a number greater than one divisible only by itself and one - 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13... (Yeah, this is practically a freebie!)
5. Fourth of July: Moonshell Beach: A Shelter Bay Novel by Ross, JoAnn 7/5
Read a book with a Firecracker Heroine or a red, white and/or blue cover.
6. Tour de France/Summer Olympics: Home At Last Chance by Hope Ramsay 7/28
Read a book that features athletes or an athletic event, takes place outdoors or is set in France or England.
7. All or Nothing Day, July 26th: Mr. and Miss Anonymous by Michaels, Fern 7/21
Read a stand alone book, one that is not part of a series or connected to any other book.
8. I Forgot Day, July 2nd: Unwrapped by Burton, Jaci  7/31
Read a book that has been on your to-read list so long you forgot about it.
9. Ugly Truck Day, July 20th: Lead Me Home (Sons of Chance, #8) by Thompson, Vicki Lewis 7/2
Read a book about a cowboy, construction worker, mechanic, set on a ranch, involves cars/trucks, or one that just has a cover with a guy that looks like he was out working on his truck. ~sigh~
10. Reader's Choice: Willow Springs (Destiny, #5) by Blake, Toni 7/2
Read any book of your choice.
