December Reading Challenge #3

My third reading challenge for the month is a Monthly challenge put together by the Romance Reader Reading Challenges group on Goodreads.

1. ‘D’ is for December: Read a book that starts with ‘D’ or by an author whose first or last name begins with ‘D’.
2. Happy Birthday!: Read a book from a December birthday celebrant’s GR bookshelf whose name/nickname starts with the same letter as yours. If no one has the same letter, choose someone with the closest letter to yours alphabetically. RRRC December Birthday List
3. Geography: Read a book whose author, character or setting is from Wisconsin. Wisconsin is best known for the Green Bay Packers (the only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team in the United States), their Cheeseheads (Wisconsin is known as America’s Dairyland) and all the beer they drink (Milwaukee was once home to four of the world’s largest breweries). I may have stretched the truth there a bit, but for this category you can also read a sports related book or one in which food/alcohol plays a large part in the story.
4. Winter (Southern) Solstice, Dec.21: The solstice brings us the shortest day of the year, so read a short book – one under 200 pages.
5. Winter (Southern) Solstice, Dec.21: The solstice also brings us the longest night, so read a book over 300 pages.
For those of you on the south side of the equator, just reverse those! =)
6. Humbug Day, Dec.21: Read a book with an unhappy, cynical or Scrooge like character.
7. Look on the Bright Side Day, Dec. 21: Read a book that features a happy, optimistic or Pollyanna like character.
8. New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31: Out with the old… Read a book that has been neglected on your TBR, one that gets you current in a series, or an old favorite either book, author, or series.
9. New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31: And in with the new! Read something new to you – a new release, a new author or a new series.
10. Reader’s Choice: Read any book of your choice.

About BrandilynRC

Brandilyn is a middle-aged (When the hell did that happen?) stay-at-home mom to 3 beautiful children (of course she is biased). She started reading M/M Romance and Gay fiction in early 2012 and was quickly hooked. In her first 18 months as a M/M Romance fan, she read over 900 titles in the genre (not counting re-reads), ranging from shorts to epic novels. She reads across all tropes within the Gay Fiction genre…. except Regency, she has never found a love for Regency. A native Texan she finds Texas to the be almost perfect… except for one thing, their treatment of the GLBTQ community. This blog is her brain child and she is happy to welcome some fellow GLBTQ supporters to review here and help promote equality (oh and of course fangirl/fanboy over their favorite authors and works).
