January Goodreads Reader Challenge Thread

1. 'J' is for January: Sea Glass Winter: A Shelter Bay Novel (Shelter Bay, #5) by Ross, JoAnn 1/7
Read a book that starts with 'J' or by an author whose first or last name begins with 'J'.
2. Happy Birthday! AlbertaJennShades of Gray by Maya Banks 1/9
Read a book from a January birthday celebrant's GR bookshelf whose name/nickname starts with the same letter as yours OR match the date of your birthday (1-31) to a member on the January birthday list. Eg My name is Jane and my birthday is 13 August. I can either pick a January birthday celebrant whose name starts with 'J' or was born on 13 January.
If neither of these options work, select a match as close as possible (either side of the initial or date).
January Birthday List
3. Geography: Boys in Blue (Bachelors At Large) (Harlequin Intrigue #745) by Rebecca York 1/15
Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Louisiana, USA. Louisiana is well known for New Orlean's Mardi Gras, so for this category you can also read a book centered around a celebration or involving a parade.
4. 'New Year' means New Year Resolutions! Back to You (Bad Boys of Red Hook, #1) by Kaye, Robin 1/13
Read a book with a character that is trying to improve themselves, started in a new profession/job/life-phase or has moved to a new district/country.
5. National Stay Healthy Month. Stuck with You by Trish Jensen 1/27
Read a book where good health or dealing with health issues is a key consideration. For example, read a book where a main character is an athlete, doctor, nutritionist/dietician, physiotherapist, or where the character is recovering from ill health.
6. 13 Jan - This is, of course, Rubbie Duckie's Birthday!: (From Sesame Street) The Cop's Missing Child by Whiddon, Karen 1/28
Read a book that features a child or children; or just read a children's book :) [Not a Young Adult book.]
7. 14 Jan - National Dress Up Your Pet day: Beach House Beginnings (Beach House No. 9, #.5) by Ridgway, Christie 1/10
Read a book with a pet in the storyline.
8. National Hugging Day and Make Your Dreams Come True Day are both in January: Beach House Beginnings (Beach House No. 9, #.5) by Ridgway, Christie 1/10
This is an easy category for everyone - Read a romance book! And a 'High 5' if your bookcover shows 2 {or more ;} people hugging!
9. Backwards Day is Jan 31: Heatseeker by Lucy Monroe  1/30
Two options.
* How do you organise your TBR shelf? Take a deep breath and select a book from the opposite end of your shelving (the last 20% of your 'normal' bookshelves).
OR
*Catering for those that don't have a TBR shelf, read a book that shows someone/something's back view or that 'takes you back' in time (a historical book or time-travel book that goes back in history).
10. Reader's Choice: Just a Kiss (The Bradfords, #5) by Nicholas, Erin 1/5
Read any book of your choice.
