Found on StoryGraph, hosted by lavender_lake. The challenge is to read a book that fits the season and theme of each prompt. This is my personal tracking page.
|1. January: winter – Crisp air, new beginnings|
Read anything that feels fresh and out of the ordinary to you.
— Terrier – Tamora Pierce
|2. February: winter – The big SAD|
Haven’s seen the sun in ages and feel kinda blue? Lean into it with a moody read.
— Come Tumbling Down – Seanan McGuire
|3. March: spring – Slowly blooming|
Time to read a coming of age novel or any story of personal growth.
— By the Sword – Mercedes Lackey
|4. April: spring – Oh so fickle|
Read a book that keeps you on your toes, just like the April weather does. Plot twists, changing perspectives, hot takes – anything goes.
— The Girl Who Survived – Lisa Jackson
|5. May: spring – Spring fever|
Bunnies in the park, birds in the air; opt for a steamy read to cure that spring fever.
|6. June: summer – Here comes the sun|
Read anything that makes you feel warm and happy.
— Red, White, and Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston
|7. July: summer – And we’re off|
Read a story that takes you far away – different countries or worlds, you decide.
|8. August: summer – Beach read|
Choose a light read; you might get distracted by playing kids and bouncing beach balls.
|9. September: fall – Fall feels|
Read anything that screams fall to you – dark academia, history fiction, or non-fiction about nature? The choice is yours.
— Soul Taken – Patricia Briggs
|10. October: fall – Spooky time|
Halloween is creeping near, time to get your spook on. Read something to give you the chills.
— A Haunted History of Invisible Women – Leanna Hieber & Andrea Janes
|11. November: fall – Cozy nights, big books|
Time to curl up with a big book. Tackle that chunky read you’ve been putting off this year.
— Where Snowflakes Dance and Curse – Stephen Manes
|12. December: winter – Ice ice baby|
It may not snow where you life, but it sure does in your December read. Pick any story with a snowy, icy setting.
