Monthly Motif Challenge 2014

I am very excited about taking part in the Monthly Motif Reading Challenge though I have no doubt it will be something of a tricky one. Still, I am definitely up for a challenge! To take part, click HERE

Here are the rules:

For this challenge, each month is assigned a certain motif or theme. Your task is to read one book per month that fits in with the motif for that particular month.
