I participated in Kim's challenge on her site for a few years. I thought it would be a fun challenge for us.
The 2016 challenge runs on My So Called Life .

You must read 12 books - one each month - to participate in this challenge. Do not read ahead.
You may read more than one book each month, if you like.
To make it extra challenging, try to find a book in a series!

For this challenge I have chosen five key words associated with each month. 
Your task is to read one book each month whose title includes 
one or more of the key words for that month. 

The title you choose can be a variation on one of the key words. 
For example- your title could include the word 'snowing' or 'snowflake' even though the key word is 'snow.'
If the word is singular, you may use a plural.
