A Year of Reading: Take Two

Last year, my sister and I decided to do a reading challenge from August 2015 through July 2016. This year, we're doing another challenge, from August 2016 through July 2017, but we're changing the way we do it just a little. It was really hard for me to stick with our reading themes last year (during most months, I didn't stick with the themes at all), so this time, we're not going to read quite as exclusively. Here are our themes for this year's challenge.

August: New York Times bestsellers (from any year)
September: Read at least one LGBT book
October: Read at least one Stephen King book
November: Read books that are set in countries other than the United States, or that are written by authors who reside somewhere other than the United States
December: Read books that have been made into movies or TV shows
January: Read books by women authors
February: Read at least one classic love story
March: Read books with green covers
April: Read at least one book that is about animals or that has an animal as the main character
May: Read eBooks and audiobooks
June: Read book series
July: Read books from the Goodreads Awards lists (from any year)

I'm really looking forward to this reading challenge because it's not as strict as it was last year, and because I think we've done a great job diversifying the types of things we're going to read. It should be much easier for me to actually stick with the themes this time around.

Are you participating in any reading challenges this year? Let us know in the comments!
